    The Florida Project: Fantasy, Capitalism, and Disney as Slumlord

    Sean Baker’s The Florida Project from 2017 examines America’s tradition of childhood as it relates to Disney. Through the perspective of Moonie, a child living in a slum in Orlando Florida, just outside Disney World, we see the struggles of this community living just outside of “the happiest place on earth.” Though many might see this as a film that portrays the unique experiences of characters living in this specific impoverished…

    Tenet is a puzzlebox of a film. It’s probably Nolan’s most complex thus far in the category of plot mechanics. We could spend hours debating and discussing the film’s timeline, and what characters’ motivations are in specific moments. It’s so complex that you never quite figure it out, and even if you do, it’s still a very hard concept to keep inside your head. The reverse chronology and the intermingling of so many different timelines makes it difficult to think…

    Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion

    ★★★★★

    Evangelion has been important to me since i was 14 and saw it for the first time. The series, and the original ending, was an experience for me that i credited with getting me out of a crippling depression. Because of this, i always felt that there needn’t be the “correction” that was The End of Evangelion. It was perfect as is, and this film, Anno’s response to the fan community was somehow impure or compromised. In this, however, i…

    ★★★★★

    This was definitely the perfect conclusion to the extended art piece that was Nathan For You, and it’s obviously the conception of The Rehearsal.

    ★★★½

    This was a super interesting watch, and very watchable… Its explicit nature makes it completely X-rated, but it’s not edited like a porn film. It cuts away from the sex often to weird reaction shots which would ruin the “porn” aspect for a certain audience, but this is because the actual X-rated shots are not the primary attraction. It’s everything in-between that’s interesting. You’re not watching for the unsimulated sex, but the bizarre aesthetic surrounding it. It’s much more an…

    The opening dance sequence, beautifully depicts modern society (or modern France), operating at its peak. This group of artists working together to create something beautiful and collective, but it's not some well-oiled mechanical machine. Each is expressing their individuality, and that individuality is celebrated and contributes to this beautiful diverse group that is also working as one thing. The hip hop and drag culture and the general diversity on display is a liberal utopia of inclusion… But, like Weimar Germany,…
