    Now we’ll never have to wonder who would have won Best Musical or Comedy at the 2022 Golden Globes.

  • Body Heat

    Body Heat

    “Double Malpractice”

    This is one of those films that is purely born due to the lifting of the Hays Code. The erotic elements of this updated iteration are a perfect blend to the already sexually charged world of film-noir. However, the only aspect that I sense is worth praising above the previous version of this tale is the magnificent score, a perfect partner to every single scene. The remaining components are still very well done but, you simply cannot put them side by side with something of the stature of Double Indemnity.

  • The Other Side of the Wind

    The Other Side of the Wind

    I cannot even make up in my mind how Welles could leave 100 hours of footage and, just with his annotations, someone even tried editing it to feature film length, let alone have the courage to release under his name.

    ★★★½

    Thank God Gene Kelly ironed out the formula with this one before making Singin' in the Rain because, as much as I love his movies, another 17 minute sequence would have literally killed me.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Not everyone says I love you, but I’ll let it slide.

  • The Deal

    The Deal

    My first day of film school the professor named this film in our production class. I was completely distracted so I assumed that it was a serious recommendation; after a quick google I was so confused whether she was being ironic or not. So I thought it couldn’t hurt watching it and I actually had a great time while doing so. A blast for anyone interested in showbiz and bts Hollywood.

  • The Night of the Hunter

    The Night of the Hunter

    ★★★★

    The way Ruby professes her obsession with The Preacher over and over again, creepily resembles how women used to romanticize Ted Bundy, and that makes this nightmarish masterpiece even more disturbing.
