    Well the news today seems a bit surreal. While we never shared the same exact views on film-making there is no doubt you were passionate in your craft and the immense love you had for cinema. I've briefly interacted with you on letterboxd, a film server, and facebook and you've always been the kindest person I have ever known online. I was proud to call you my friend. I hope you rest well knowing that the art you created in your own vision and love will be here forever for others to enjoy.

    "if anything, fascism is anti-me"

    The camera glides smoothly and slowly over these apartments which sets the stage for the entire film. Taking place shortly before WW2 with the alliance of both Germany and Italy the combined military forces and its figures are idolized. A soon to be total war with all efforts, resources, and materials drained for the cause. The colors are dimmed and only the flags are brought forth and have attention drawn towards them. The radio broadcasts…

    Apache Drums

    ★★★★

    Taking the established brittle and fragile community and forcing them into a situation during the final act where their cooperation is vital else they must accept their inevitable fate, together. Observing those who choose to accept their fate in what seems to be the final hours of their lives is moving both from the community and the Apaches themselves. Beautifully shot with gorgeous use of technicolor alongside tackling the themes of morals and the essence of belonging makes Apache Drums nothing short of brilliant.
