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

    David Lynch is one of my favorite filmmakers of all time, but when it comes to writing in-depth reviews about his filmography, I have struggled tremendously to articulate my thoughts into words. I will admit I'm not the best person at analyzing films on a deeper level, but that's what makes me adore David Lynch's filmography even more. They’re challenging, surreal and extraordinarily unique. His films... how can I phrase it...? They're a puzzle. A puzzle you spent hours and…

    How can you find a way to find faith in a world devoid of spirituality? How can we save ourselves without spirituality? Is it too late to search for meaning in our faithless world? In the 1979 film, Stalker. Tarkovsky takes us on a meditative path through the Zone. A place within this Zone called the Room is a place where one’s innermost desires come true. A guide named Stalker finds people to give them something to believe in. He…

    I don’t think it’s no secret to all of my avid readers that Andrei Tarkovsky is my favorite filmmaker of all time. Last year, I have written in-depth reviews for Andrei Rublev, Solaris, Stalker, Nostalgia and The Sacrifice. His filmography has made a tremendous impact on my life as a devout Christian and has made me grow so much in my Christian faith. What I love about Tarkovsky and filmography is his infectious enthusiasm and passion to create life-changing works…

    Four months ago, I watched Europa ‘51. It is my fifth film from Roberto Rossellini. Over the course of summer 2023, I have seen a total of six films by Rossellini. As I resume exploring his filmography, his work continues to impress me. If you are an avid reader of my reviews, you will know Andrei Tarkovsky is my favorite filmmaker of all time. When it comes to a filmmaker I hold to a high regard, Roberto Rossellini fits the…

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

    M. Night Shyamalan’s Signs is a film that I have held high regard for. While his filmography may include films that were panned by critics and audiences, however, I believe Signs is the best film he’s ever made. This review is going to be somewhat different compared to the reviews I normally write. If you’re a fan of my reviews, then you will know that I want to analyze films from a religious perspective and start incorporating the Director’s worldview,…

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

    Andrei Rublev is a film that I have struggled to write an in-depth review for a few years now. I’ve written reviews for Andrei Tarkovsky’s other films such as Solaris, Mirror, Stalker, Nostalghia and The Sacrifice. However, Andrei Rublev has been somewhat a difficult film for me to evaluate and analyze the themes and ideas. As I’ve stated in my bio, I am not a professional critic. My goal is to approach analyzing film from a religious perspective. Before I…
