    The Graduate

    ★★★★★

    I’m a little worried about my future 

    Sometimes a work of art comes strolling along into your life at the perfect time. Even on top of that, something that seems like divine powers interfering with everything happens during the film that somehow makes it hit even harder. At the moment, for me, The Graduate is that work of art.  

    The fact that the cinematography is used to actually tell a story rather than to just look pretty is really inspiring…

    The Rules of the Game

    The awful thing about life is this: Everybody has their reasons 

    Jean Renoirs mark on cinema cannot be overstated, The Rules Of The Game seems to have paved the way for some of the most cutting edge satires ever produced, films that always appear in the conversation of the best ever, however, ignoring its influential nature, as it’s own satire?

    R.I.P Ray Liotta,

    His performance in this film will forever remain beyond iconic- it’s been cemented into pop culture and it will stay that way for centuries to come. One of the best things about film is the fact that it can immortalise people like this. 

    So- I was wrong about Goodfellas and it is in fact a perfect masterpiece. I’m being the bigger man here, admitting I was wrong, I am looking back and feeling regret, I should get applauded for this.
