    ★★★★

    A quest for meaning in a meaningless existence, we’ve seen characters question their purpose in a countless number of films, but Villeneuve’s exploration of this within Gosling’s character one of the most fascinating ever. The fact that Gosling is a replicant, and by definition, lacks a purpose in his existence, adds so much to the journey he undergoes throughout the film. Like Ridley Scott’s original, it’s really easy to misunderstand this film if you are looking into the film’s narrative…

    ★★½

    Black Widow is simply a film that is mediocre no matter which way you look at it, even for MCU standards. It’s not like I expected this movie to break new ground or anything, but it makes absolutely no effort to break out of that traditional Marvel formula that we see time and time again. It is with this film that I have lost all hope in Marvel’s ability to make a competent standalone film that they don’t feel the…

    Elia Kazan was a traitor. I had been well aware of Elia Kazan and his history of informing to the HUAC long before i watched On The Waterfront, and I was prepared to push my political and moral beliefs aside in order to enjoy this film, but this entire film is essentially about Kazan’s decision to testify against his former colleagues. For those who are unfamiliar, the HUAC was a US government agency who investigated treasonous activities, but in this…

    ★★★½

    I think that demi's review pretty much sums up my thoughts on this film perfectly. It is a film overflowing with implied subtext and therefore begging to be analyzed, but I just can’t seem to wrap my head around these ideas to become emotionally invested in this film. The distance I felt from these characters was immense, even though Ramsay’s direction gets the character’s feeling across very creatively. My discovery of Letterboxd has caused me to put this pressure on myself to…

    ★★★½

    I could very much see Greta Gerwig becoming the next Sofia Coppola in Hollywood. Just from the very first films in Gerwig’s directorial career, it’s easy to see that she makes very female-centric movies, that admittedly are not for everyone. I also noted Gerwig’s films as being particularly non inclusive of people of color, very similar to Coppola’s oeuvre thus far. But this isn’t a real detriment to the strength of Gerwig’s filmography, as I’m sure her reasons are very…

    I had never seen a Tim Burton film before this. I know, crazy right? Many of the people here have grown up on Burton’s films and had his style shape their imaginations as a child, but I unfortunately wasn’t lucky enough to discover his films at a young age. But now that I’ve seen a film of Burton’s, I know what all the fuss is about. I have seen many reference Burton’s style in various contexts, and I’ve always had…
