Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★★

It's been just over a year since I first watched this and I haven't seen it since. Yet on rewatch I realized how every single shot, without fail, was already burned into my brain because of how beautifully composed they all are.

The first half is drowning in yearning while the second half if coated in passion. Of all the romance films I have seen this is one that makes me genuinely "feel" the most (the before trilogy is a close second).

I'll never not get hyped when the choir at the campfire start singing the THX logo sound and I'll never not hold my breath during the ending.

One of the best films of the 2010's if not one of the best films of all time.
