  • Decision to Leave

    Decision to Leave


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Decision to Leave is the story of the mountain and the sea.

    First, there's the mountain. The mountain is benevolent. It's lawful. Upright. Stalwart. Immovable. The mountain is good.

    Then there's the sea. The sea is fickle, and mercurial, and changing, and deep. The sea is wise.

    Hae-joon enters this tale as the mountain. A sturdy policeman, renowned for his reputation as once being the youngest ever inspector in the nation, Hae-joon stands as a shining testament to the bulwark…

    Purple Noon


    With his mischievous puppy-dog eyes alone, Alain Delon presents Tom Ripley as a man of deep and unfettered wanting. He's assailed on all fronts by a fullness of life that doesn't belong to him, enviously coveting to take the place of Maurice Ronet's detestable Philippe Greenleaf. His odyssey is one drenched in a heat haze of jealous bitterness, with gorgeous sun-bathed Italian locales further illiciting a sumptuous allure for Ripley's already mouth-watering yearning. And watching this yearning manifest into cunning…

    One Cut of the Dead


    This movie played me like a damn fiddle.

    Never have I been so baited by a film — to begin by being presented with such a comedy of errors, to having my heart completely arrested and taken hostage on the wildest ride of redemptive celebration.

    What a collective team effort. An infallible orchestration. A god damn fuckin symphony.

    All hail movies!!!

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3


    I had nervous anticipation going into Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, as Volumes 1 and 2 are my two favourite Marvel movies. Specifically Vol. 2 being my absolute, undisputed favourite; which is funny, seeing as how most people dislike that one. Vol. 2 often gets a lot of slack, namely for its repetitive thematic explorations, and a plot that feels like it's "starting back at square one" with the Guardians all at odds again, as if the character developments…

  • Suspiria



    Suspiria feels like a surrealist panic attack.

    From the vibrant colours to the puzzling environments, Suspiria is permeated with a wonderfully anxious ambience. There is a constant kaleidoscope of creeping concern, punctuated with horrific moments of visceral violence. It's an absolute delight.

    For better or worse, this impeccable aesthetic takes complete precedence over actual plot elements. The events of the movie act as more of a mood, rather than an actuality. Instead, it's the style of the film that's responsible…

    Everything Everywhere All at Once


    As would be natural when discussing a movie that tackles existentialism and generational trauma in a whirlwind of multiverse-hopping kung-fu action, there's a lot of (mostly positive) things to say about Everything Everywhere All at Once.

    It's easy to compliment the ever-evolving ingenious presentation, even if the pacing sometimes left me feeling exhausted. It's easy to get excited by the incredibly hilarious ideas in the action sequences, even if I wanted a little more in the moment-to-moment fight choreography. It's…
