    Nightcrawler

    ★★★★★

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

    Why you pursue something is as important as what you pursue.

    For those curious, yes, despite having watched the movie not long ago to properly prepare for this paper, I watched it again so this can count as a proper research. Turns out, when you're dealing with an all-time favorite movie, you can seemingly watch it every day and not get tired of it. This in a way, at least at the moment, feels like a culmination of the two…

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

    (Before we get into this, a disclaimer. This is not meant to discredit anyone that has legitimate criticisms or truthfully disliked what’s presented. This is an in-depth analysis based on my personal takeaways mixed with takeaways I have seen from separate analyses which I agree with. Everyone is equally entitled to an opinion so long as they have enough to be able to back up said opinion. Even if you disagree with what I have to say, I still appreciate…

  • Liquid Truth

    Liquid Truth

    ★★★

    Some parents fuck up a kid's mind.

    Take The Hunt and ask yourself "What if it was a little gay?", then you have yourself a little Liquid Truth. That will be the clear comparison to make to another movie with this, and it's a good litmus test to see how this stands on its own as a "he said, she said" drama. Based on that, this is decent, in some spaces compelling in its own right, but could have absolutely…

  • Flesh for Frankenstein

    Flesh for Frankenstein

    ★★★

    KISS HIM

    Andy Warhol as a producer and Paul Morrissey, his co-director on the infamous Lonesome Cowboys give their rendition on the classic tale of Frankenstein, the titular doctor here being a sex freak who's really into eugenics. There's a lot of nudity and gore, and it's not really all that good, but it s fascinating artifact. So, in other words, it's what you think "Warhol does Frankenstein" would be like. Not too far at all from any other work…

    Bo Burnham: Inside

    ★★

    Making a Literal Difference Metaphorically

    I am going to try to be as not mean about this as I can. I absolutely adored Bo Burnham when I discovered him. I cannot remember when I discovered his Netflix specials or how, but I loved them. (what. was to me my favorite stand-up special without a shadow of doubt.) I cannot pinpoint an exact time when I started thinking about it, maybe around the same time when I was having to wonder…

  • Apostle

    Apostle

    ★★★★

    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    First Reformed: "I'm going to be the most atmospheric, disturbing, and enthralling exploration of faith in 2018!"

    Apostle: "Hold my beer."

    One of my most anticipated films of the year did not disappoint at all. Gareth Evans trades in claustrophobic fisticuffs spectacle for grand-scale Gothic horror, and proves he can do both almost equally well. Apostle is the film equivalent of nails on…
