    ★★★★

    You don't know s t r e s s until you witness the predicament the couple in this film find themselves in! 💀

    Anxiety-inducing flicks like Good Times and Uncut Gems are the closest comparison I can make to the teeth-grinding, fist-clenching, panic-stricken experience I had with this...only, it mainly all unfolds in a single location (an apartment). You can damn near taste the nerve-shredding desperation and unrelenting anxiety. The tension is that visceral, that palpable.

    There's nothing quite like…

    Bandini

    ★★★★

    Basically, if what happened to Job instead happened to Job’s wife, and her and Job were instead star-crossed lovers because life isn't fair, and god obviously isn't real, so she isn't being tortured as a sadistic test to satiate the whims of a narcissistic asshole deity - she just has shitty, rotten luck.

    My precious Kalyani, you are the most gentle, precious, selfless, and kind-hearted soul who has ever existed and you deserved so much more and better in life,…

    Three Maidens

    ★★★★

    Quaint, exuberant, and charming in all of the right ways!

    The story centers three sisters–Nunung, Nana, and Nenny–who are raised by their grandmother and their often preoccupied father. The family schemes to marry off the eldest daughter (Nunung), who in many ways functions as a surrogate mother for the household. However, Nunung’s resistance to their matchmaking plans sets off a chain of comedic entanglements.

    It's been a while since a movie made me smile this much throughout its runtime. While…

    Good Mother

    ★★★½

    “Mother: the most beautiful word on the lips of humankind.” — Kahil Gibran

    ”Good” isn't good enough of an adjective to describe this Mom (Nora). She is Love. She is Light. She is Strength. Her smile is Warmth. Her temperament is Peace. Her presence is a Gift. Tenderness is her name. She's the “Do anything for my children” specimen that poets artfully romanticize and singers melodically croon about.

    Nora’s children being flawed fuckups makes witnessing the extent of her self-sacrifice…

    Titane

    ★★½

    Idk, man...I legit don't know what I just saw. 😳😆😒

    I'm jealous that so many people are able to enjoy this. For me, though, Titane's particular blend of batshit, bizarre, and bewildering elements didn't resonate with me.

    At no point was I bored, but there were moments of exasperation. I don't think it's "bad," but I was glad when it was finally over.

    I don't hate it. I feel...nothing. I'm utterly indifferent. This wasn't for me. And my indifference is to the point that I don't even care enough to attempt to articulate why it didn't work for me.

  • They Cloned Tyrone

    They Cloned Tyrone

    ★★★★½

    If the distinctly Black inspiration behind Boots Riley's Sorry to Bother You, Jordan Peele's Get Out, and Malcolm D. Lee's Undercover Brother had a passionate tryst and made a cinematic lovechild. 🤌🏿🙌🏿✨

    They Cloned Tyrone blesses us with an ideal blend of Black humor, Black ingenuity, Black existentialism (defined within the oppressive confines of white hegemony), and conscious Black "drapetomania."

    Unapologetically Black and FUBU as fuck. Definitely Tupac's "Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z." type energy insofar as there being ample nuances,…
