    Help each other. Love everyone. Every leaf. Every ray of light. Forgive.

    I desperately want to write a big review going on about how much this film means to me. How empathetic it is. How its moments of serene beauty and emotion make me tear up and how every shot, every ray of sunshine works perfectly together with the score to make an emotionally devastating masterpiece like this. How people that find this “pretentious” can fuck right off (pardon my…

    I don’t think I have ever been this immersed in a film. In these 4 hours Yang takes you to this city where the streets feel like you’ve been walking them your whole life and the characters feel like you’ve known them for longer than you can imagine. Stories intertwine each other making for a film that’s so large in scale and vision yet so intimate. Motifs of light (like the flashlight, which is a recurring theme both thematically but…

    Holy shit. It’s as if Terrence Malick snorted a whole bunch of cocaine and then decided to make an action movie. It’s like Song to Song but on drugs. Digital cinema has never looked this good, the emotion, the passion, the empathy, its all there. Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx give perfect performances. I love how this movie is so chaotic, like the complete opposite of Heat. It’s impossible to lay my finger on it. It’s unfocused yet concentrated, and…

    ★★★½

    Denis Villeneuve isn’t a director I wouldn’t necessarily call “hit or miss”, since I’ve liked most of his movies I’ve seen from him, but I definitely think parts of his filmography are much better than other parts. I love Arrival, Incendies and Blade Runner 2049, but movies like Prisoners, Enemy and Sicario feel so emotionally empty that they don’t do much for me personally. It’s why I went into Dune with mixed expectations: I was half expecting an emotional masterpiece…
