    I find it best to write about Kiarostami’s films in bursts rather than singularly because he explores similar ideas between a lot of films and it feels like more of an expansion rather than a repeat which I find interesting. I previously mentioned in my review of Kiarostami’s A Wedding Suit an unofficial (Though possibly intentional) trilogy within his first three films. A trilogy connected by ideas and themes rather than story or characters; similarly I feel like another one is…

    Kiarostami seems to love the idea of reactions, or perhaps more specifically, expressions. Throughout his career he’s explored the idea in a variety of approaches and projects and in doing so seems to be aiming to break down the common functionality of the cinema and reach a heightened level of naturalism. As I’ve said when writing my thoughts on Kiarostami’s film First Graders, he explores similar ideas throughout his films and I had even hypothesized an unofficial trilogy of films…

    It's no secret that I've had a rocky past with Noe's work.

    I have a serious question about the work of mr. Runquist: Why is there 3 separate director credit pages for him on this app? The magnum opus known to us mortals as Pine is under the first along with a handful of other forgotten gems. The second page is home to the second-era Runquist classics; Wave Sounds and Rhubarb. Now we have the third with this and the toast one. But why?

    Can’t wait to be cancelled for not calling this the greatest film of all time. 

    The American indie cinema is officially dead. The art house assembly line, A24, have transcended their roots of making something alternative to the norm (despite their alternative becoming its own genre with clichés and similar story beats spewed across its entire catalogue) and have begun making Marvel movies, even being produced by The Russo Bros.

    I don’t dare knock the creativity of The Daniels. After…
