    “Stop torturing yourself. Stop inviting me to torture you.”

    I know this may be an unpopular opinion (as what I’ve seen here on LB), but for ME, and in my personal opinion, I fucking loved this. 

    This film acts as a memoir for Joanna Hogg, and she captures that so elegantly. Hogg shows and communicates the emotions that her young self went through, albeit, not being fully accurate in the details. Also, I just don’t think it matters. The emotions…

    In the Mood for Love

    ★★★★★

    In the Mood for Love is one of those films that will linger with you once the credits roll. I think its a seriously amazing cinematic achievement to have done something like this. Wong Kar-wai utilizes every aspect of cinema to create a film that is practically perfect, while carrying with it so much realized emotions from the characters that feels so real. 

    The way that the visual language and cinematography kind of entrap both Maggie Cheung’s Mrs. Chan and…

    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    ★★★★

    This is the type of film that knows just how to have some fun. The animation is, in my opinion, off the charts. It feels like something ripped from a comic book. And the last time I got that feeling was with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which coincidentally was produced by Sony as well just like this movie. 

    As someone who also started loving films, it became clear that not a lot of people have the same appreciation and affection for…

  • In Bruges

    In Bruges

    ★★★★½

    Just genuinely surprised with this film. Besides the really dark humour this film carries, its surprisingly profound when it begins to talk about the ideas of redemption, heaven & hell, and how much our actions carry almost insurmountable consequences and effects. I don’t know why but I was expecting a really light-hearted comedy, action, thriller. 

    But I guess I have to talk about fucking Colin Farrell because not for one minute can you look away from his performance. He really goes…

    Chinatown

    ★★★★½

    So let me get this straight, Roman Polanski tells a story about a wealthy man, who rapes his daugther and also get away with it. 3 years later, he was charged for drugging and raping a 13 year old girl and basically gets away by leaving the US. That is just too on the nose huh. But I guess it did show just how the powerful people tend to really get away with their misdoings. And how our world, filled…

  • The Lighthouse

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★½

    To fully appreciate The Lighthouse, one has to completely throw themselves at this film and trust the filmmaker, Robert Eggers, on what will happen to the characters. Going blindly into this is actually a good idea because then you can try and just immerse yourselves with the state of minds of the leads. Oh and a pro tip, if you want to remotely understand anything in this film, watch with subtitles.

    On my second watch, I still couldn’t believe that…
