  • Babylon



    Damien Chazelle’s “Babylon” is a confounding and bombastic reimagining of the decadence, horror, mystique, and myth at a major turning point in the history of film. From the zenith of silent pictures to the messy beginning of talkies. But “Babylon” isn’t about the abstract wonder of picture-making. It’s an attentive interpretation of the history of the period, refined and emboldened by the deeply personal human reasons that people are drawn both to the cinema and to the environs of cinema-making.…

    "There's something I know when I'm with you that I forget when I'm away. Tell me, my love. Did you wish for me to come back and live with you again?" -Captain Smith

    Almost 15 years ago this was my first Malick film. I must have been in my last year of middle school or thereabouts when this picture floored me and wracked my young mind with feeling I was unequipped to fully collate. I didn't know how…

  • Aporia



    Writer-director Jared Moshe’s film titled after a logical impasse or contradiction “Aporia,” centers on a time travel device that kills. After Sophie’s husband Mal is killed by a drunk driver, Jabir (Payman Maadi) a family friend shows Sophie (Judy Greer) a device that he and Mal (Edi Gathegi) created in the spare bedroom of his home. A seeming junk heap that when programmed correctly can use a special particle to end the life of anyone they know the precise location…

    No substance to content. One of the most droll and uninteresting high profile pictures in a long time. Everything felt mashed together without cohesion, the socio-economic and political points made were undercut by it's very narrative. The basic premise of Triple Frontier watered down with moments that are poorly stylized and seem to belong to entirely different films. I don't know what movie everyone else is seeing because this was as close to awful as I've seen from…

  • Midsommar



    What a killer way to teach someone how to cope with death.

    I was wrapped up in Midsommar the entire time. It felt like an unflinching and uncompromising bit of autership that rubbed me in all the right ways, regarding death, paranoia, loneliness, fear, desire, and unspoken truth. As of now I like it more than Hereditary. We'll see if that's true on rewatch.

    Super rich world, very tapestral and nuanced. The attention to detail with a particular side character suffering injuries made the world feel incredibly real. Ari Aster is out here making movies that will transcend generations.
