A fledgling.
Ratings are just how much I like a movie, with 2.5 being probably enough to rewatch.

    The Great Silence


    In the snow covered valleys of Utah, high on a horse and with a singular mission is a mute gunslinger who's known only as Silence. Thus begins one of the most exemplary films in the Spaghetti Western genre, and one of the most moving character studies I've seen to date.

    Shot in the icy depths of the Dolemites we watch Loco and Silence wage all out long, bloody war on each other in a classic good versus evil motif. We…

    Birds of Passage


    When all the shots are fired and the fields run red with blood before burning, who is tasked with carrying our souls away from the Earth? When our bones are washed and our bodies buried for the second time, who will tell the stories?

    The Holy Mountain is nothing like I expected. For starters, it's much more narrative than I anticipated, and while its laden with very striking visuals and metaphors I wouldn't call it surreal as much as avant-garde. None of this matters really, that's just to say that I think there's some misconceptions on how fleshed out and comprehensible this movie seems to be. It's prose, not poetry. And in this way I think it sets a high bar for other avant-garde…
