    *some thematic spoilers*

    I decided to rewatch this in honour of Julia Docournau’s Palme D’or win yesterday. I rarely care about award ceremonies, but I was genuinely over the moon to hear about her success with her second feature, Titane, which is a film I’ve been excited for every since it was announced. 

    Raw was the first film I watched that gave me the ability to say ‘I have a favourite film’. It marked a huge change in my film…

    ★★★★★

    When each cut from image to image is worthy of entire essays of analysis, then the piece as a whole can become overwhelming, which is exactly how I felt the first time I watched Battleship Potemkin. I returned for a second viewing a few weeks after the first, just to make sure I took everything in.

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★★½

    I don’t think this one is as good as some other Wright films, but that’s not exactly damning criticism as the bar to reach is through the roof. Last Night in Soho will probably end up being one of Edgar Wright’s most important films, as it shows he’s willing to break out of his comfort zone. He’s been working in his small niche of cineliterate, fourth wall acknowledging and not so self-serious films; Last Night in Soho is him breaking…

    Titane

    ★★★★★

    Back when I made my Letterboxd account, and had just added Raw to the top slot of my favourites list, the very first film I added to my watchlist was Titane. Ever since that day my hype has been growing, so when I got the rare chance to see the film introduced by Julia Docournau herself at LFF, I took it. Despite all my anticipation, I managed to resist the urge to read up on the film. Looking back, I…
