  • Beyond Oblivion

    Beyond Oblivion

    As much as the comparison with Vertigo is fascinating, I don’t think it’s the only “Hitchcockian” aspect the film has to offer. Rebecca was shot 16 years prior and the dialogue between these two pieces of work is also incredibly interesting.

  • 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 it under his name.

  • Everyone Says I Love You

    Everyone Says I Love You

    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.

  • Zack Snyder's Justice League

  • The Vast of Night

    The Vast of Night

    An impressive homage to a time when aliens in film wasn’t a genre of it’s own but a substantial instrument in well done horror.

  • Never Rarely Sometimes Always

    Never Rarely Sometimes Always

    Less than 24 hours ago abortion was legalized in my country, so I don’t think there was a more perfect time for me to finally watch this.

  • Mank

    Mank

    If Citizen Kane talks about how even thousands of stories could not define a man, then Mank is about the thousands of stories that lead a man to ultimately create the story that will forever define him.

  • The Lady Eve

    The Lady Eve

    Barbara Stanwyck manipulating men is by far my favorite film genre.

  • Kicking and Screaming

    Kicking and Screaming

    It’s so tough when you’re not having the best experience watching a film, and prepare yourself to unfortunately write about the somewhat disappointing experience you had, to then, all of a sudden, be struck by a tremendous last scene and a fantastic closing credits song that leave you more mixed that you previously were.

  • State of the Union
