  • Wildlife

    Wildlife

    ★★★★½

    The title “Wildlife” is a reference and is utilized as poetic symbolism for nature and the constant cycles surrounding the organisms within it; the most obvious comparison I can make is taking the Brinson family and using it as a metaphor for an ecosystem. The father Jerry (Jake Gyllenhaal), the mother Jeanette (Carey Mulligan) and the son Joe (Ed Oxenbould) are the three essential components that form it. A significant conception revolving ecosystems is that each part has astronomical importance,…

  • Happy-Go-Lucky

    Happy-Go-Lucky

    ★★★★½

    The idea that femininity can be expressed through happiness rather than strength. 

    Cheerfully diverse in its color palette, contained and cozy in its cinematographic look, and personal in its direction; the feminist undertones are implemented in a focused and subtle way underneath the characteristics of the setting. Mike Leigh creates a character that is so unique, expressive, and relatable but does it in such an unconventional way. Someone that is so happy, maybe even too happy, and is exemplified through…

    Little Children

    ★★★★

    There’s a major problem with suburbia that many films attempt to critique and study, yet few are able to accomplish with as much power and success as Little Children.

Each action, whether it’s explicitly illegal or unimportantly embarrassing, has an everlasting effect on you and will never be forgotten. There’s…

    Dreamgirls

    The pitch-perfect mix of enthusiasm, representation and musical energy that is needed to boost any sense of emotional gratification one would want when watching a story of this vein. Bill Condon injects endless passion and charisma into each location, song, storyline and especially character, allowing for a well earned value of entertainment. There’s always a fun dynamic taking place that revolves around the balance of fame and the problematically exciting nature of show business. In the world of Dreamgirls, 30 minutes really does feel like 5.

  • Pieces of a Woman

    Pieces of a Woman

    I like to ask myself after watching a movie “Would this movie exist if it wasn’t trying to win any awards?” The simple answer with Pieces of a Woman is no. Despite its heartbreaking themes and amazingly difficult dramatic performances, something about it feels empty. It’s as if you watched these characters go through pain without reason. I get that this movie is a vehicle for the actors to really do their thing but if you wanna make a truly…
