    The Banshees of Inisherin

    ★★★★★

    I made a solo trip to a matinee during the midweek to see a new Martin McDonagh film. 

    Sadly, the movie’s theme (the dissolution of friendship) is mirroring my current life a little too closely and it was a difficult watch for me—though totally worth it. Despite my emotional reaction to the film, there were quite a few laugh out loud moments to pull me out of my funk. It is definitely a dramedy or a tragic comedy. So be…

    After Yang

    ★★★★

    After Yang is a sci fi movie and a family drama—much like the recently released Everything Everywhere All At Once, another A24 film.

    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★★★

    "Sorry to Bother You" is a clever satire with great acting and stunning camerawork. Definitely an impressive directorial debut by Boots Riley.

    Over the past couple of years, I have become a huge fan of Lakeith Stanfield and I'm glad to see him taking on some leading roles. This guy is super talented. Oh, and if you haven't seen Atlanta yet, do yourself a favor and check it out. Lakeith's supporting character, Darius, is hilarious!

    The Lives of Others

    ★★★★½

    The Lives of Others has aged well. It's still just as relevant in 2021 as it was when it was made--if not more so. After all, in the digital age, surveillance is pretty much everywhere. However, it is a million times scarier when utilized by a totalitarian state.

    Incredible acting all around--though Ulrich Mühe's nuanced performance stands out in particular.
