    Stranger Than Fiction

    ★★★★½

    It’s been quite a while since I could last sit through an entire film, paying proper attention and being adequately engaged. Call it watcher’s fatigue or just damn old lack of time, this day-to-day activity that is most usual to most users of this platform had been absent from my routine for quite some months, and has surely been missed. For this reason or not, this comeback watch caught me off-guard, and got me quite moved. Underlying the inherent quirkiness and unusual post-modern premise, there’s an uplifting, reassuring and very heartwarming message at play here, one that subtly blossomed like a beautiful flour.

  • The Gentlemen

    The Gentlemen

    ★★★★

    Frantic crime thriller full of twists and turns, frank popcorn entertainment: the kind Ritchie does best.

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    “Other animals live in the present. Humans cannot. So they invented hope”

    Lot to process. Interesting flick. It’s amazing how Kaufman so smoothly engages us into this “stream-of-counciousness” cinema that brings all these twisted but brilliant conjectures of his. Looking forward to watching A Woman Under the Influence. Probably later this week.

  • Sorry We Missed You

    Sorry We Missed You

    Like a modern take on “Bicycle Thieves”, in which the horrors of post-war have given place to the daunting horrors of late capitalism.
