    Titane

    TIFF 2021

    Julia Ducournau’s Titane is a unique, feral, and riveting masterwork that conjures the magic of imaginative filmmaking as it blends body-horror, dark comedy, and drama. Ducournau is the only one who can handle all of this and still be on top. Her maelstrom of a director's touch covers every inch of the screen with bodies beat to a pulp, the blending of the carnal with metallic transformations, father-daughter junctures, darkly comedic jokes, great use of a jukebox, and…

    Petite Maman

    TIFF 2021

    Céline Sciamma’s follow-up to Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Petite Maman, is a sweet, tender, and fairytale-esque film that focuses on grief and escapism during your childhood. Even though it is only 72-minutes long, it is wholly enchanting and poignant. A film to watch when it rains, when you are feeling down, or when you want to remember how it feels to be a kid again. To cherish those small moments with friends and being there for each other, learning how to forge a friendship. Truly special.

    Medusa

    TIFF 2021

    Anita Rocha da Silveira’s Medusa does brim with social commentary and reverence of several important topics and transgressions; its best moments are the fine-drawn subtle moments, albeit the last act doesn’t have significant motion. Its voice is poignant and has solemnity; its most subtle yet vexing moments are its best and most memorable. Admittedly, it isn’t the best film to cover these themes or put on “aggressive” while delicate structures to depict them; still, you want to keep watching to see where it goes.

    Spencer

    TIFF 2021

    Like Jackie, Spencer masterfully crafts horror & beauty within the isolation of its main character (almost like a ghost story in the midst of a fairytale). It is beautifully crafted and executed on all ends; the strings by Greenwood, the cinematography by Mathon, and Larrain's direction, and in the heart of it, there is the brilliant Kristen Stewart with the performance of her career. Jackie tackles the mourning, while Spencer deals with mental health. Both of them (Jackie and…

    The Worst Person in the World

    TIFF 2021

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD. Made me think of Frances Ha, but this is so much better. A funny, clever, complex, and charming story about identity v. connection. Renate Reinsve is outstanding; what a hidden treasure. I wish I could see it once again. What a joy, what a treat!

    Full Review soon.
