Dune is a visual feast for the eyes and Hans Zimmer's epic unorthodox score makes it even more perfect. this film bleeds art from every pore. stupendous and magnificent.
however, i still have a few gripes, somehow the film lacks emotional depth, that part feels unexplored. apart from Paul's relationship with his mother lady Jessica, there is no palpable emotional bond within and between the characters, it just feels hollow to me. also i think i’ll keep the other issue to myself until the second part. i just know that Dune part 2 is the real deal and i can't wait for it!
Titane is undeniably a Cronenberg-esque experience, full of batshit crazy things but therein lies the speciality of the film. and as for Julia Ducournau, her creative boldness is truly the vein and heart of her works. she has no qualms about breaking through boundaries and i love her for that.
Minari is a heartfelt, humble, authentic, genuine and utterly serene semi-autobiographical and slice of life drama.
the film presents us a tale of Korean immigrant family in pursuit of the American dream. set in 1980s rural Arkansas, their life is filled with some heartbreaking and challenging set of conditions but also on par with goofy and moving moments. filmmaking-wise, Minari is a charmer with beauty that bursting in every scene. the script is great and the story is so inspiring…
ah, where do i should start my review? because the way this movie depicting embedded pain has provoked a lot of thoughts in my mind.
poignant, intimate, magnetic, and rich of emotional bandages, Kajillionaire easily touches the center of my heart and full of messages that stay with me. the whole picture was portrayed by it's exploration of damages that happened to someone who grew up without a sense of love and lack of care. Kajillionaire also encapsulated with the character struggles to get out of her solitude, desperately learning about love and seeking her own peace of mind.
