    The Banshees of Inisherin

    ★★★½

    Dull or war. The island of Inisherin is as bothered of a place as is its simpleton residents who perfectly elapse the time drinking pints at their one pub, herding their farm animals across every homogeneous neighbor abode, and conversing within the topical confinement of this intrinsically regimented cycle over and over again — say from the occasional war that can be sought just across the ocean. Not soon after though does this “simpleton” world quickly become fable: in the…

    Decision to Leave

    ★★★½

    ☕️.

    As you can imagine, Park Chan-wook going soft doesn’t exactly equate to a particularly happy-go-lucky narrative given what he’s known for. Sure, there aren’t people being bludgeoned to death with a hammer or even just steadily tortured with a paper cutter in Decisions to Leave, but the heartache that Chan-wook’s characters frequently accumulate to certainly simmers beneath every perverted act sparked between insomniac Detective Hae-joon and suspect Seo-rae. In classic noir fashion, Chan-wook follows our curious lead as he…

    The Fabelmans

    ★★½

    never felt such shame from a film not clicking for me than this one. as a kid who also made movies ever since i thought to employ my toys as their superstars, much of this genuinely felt like time traveling. 

    maybe if i hadn’t watched Armageddon Time prior…

  • Bones and All

    Bones and All

    ★★★

    the *admittedly gnarly asf* vampire shenanigans are constantly employed as brash coming-of-age metaphors, but this is nonetheless tastefully grim in regards to its ground-level familial drama, and hilariously melodramatic in classic YA fashion for the better especially towards its climax. ergo, this is unapologetically accentuated and of its genres, which shouldn’t be too much of a shock for Guadagnino since it succeeds his Suspiria remake.

    love it when a director lets their actors drool too, snot and all.

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★

    Warning: This review will contain excessive amounts of the f-word in the spirit of Tarantino.

    I remember seeing the second trailer for Tarantino’s ninth (but technically tenth) film way back in May of 2019 and thinking to myself “I have no clue what this movie is going to be about, but I’m cheer to see that the marketers have decided to not give anything away!” So, I just saw the full, two-hour-and-forty-five-minute-long movie…and I have to say…I still have no…

    Joker

    ★★★½

    Wow, I have…so much…to say about this

    Todd Phillips’s Joker is one of the most forbidding pieces of cinematic design to come to mind especially in recent years. Using its visually repulsive presentation to seize uncanny validity and to strike audiences worldwide of the truth about a terrorizing infection that’s leaked into the veins of every individual around the world, this film rivets its audience through all the grimmest corners of life before eventually abandoning them, pretending like they don’t…
