    The Shape of Water

    ★★★★

    Love and desire, much like water, take no definitive shape and vary from circumstance to circumstance. Love cannot be bound by whatever environment it manifests in and i think thats kinda swag.

  • House of Gucci

    House of Gucci

    ★½

    Empty and lacking anything of intrigue beyond a singular interesting character in the form of Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci. Ridley Scott follows up “The Last Duel” with a film just as long but way more stale. Much of whats entertaining about the film can be found in the trailers, which place Lady Gaga’s goofy, uninspired one liners front and center. The first red flag of the movie was definitely Gaga, who paraded herself from interview to interview as some tortured…

    I will watch this movie until i can quote every line word for word.

    Spencer

    ★★★★

    Even though Ive always been one to despise the Royal Family’s elitism and constant performativeness. I really connected with this beautifully told story of rebelliousness in the face of comfority/tradition. Graceful and even ambiguous at points. Pablo Larrain puts more emphasis on Diana’s struggle as a fish out of water, rather than the tiring  
    royal melodrama and struggles with fame, which im glad about because if it did, this could’ve easily been some deplorable shit. Claire Mathon is also…

  • Last Night in Soho

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★½

    I redacted my previous review of the movie because I’ve seen other peoples takes on it and ive thought about my viewing experience more.

    While this film is very visually and aesthetically distinct(especially in the context of Edgar Wrights filmography) It feels like it trivializes it’s messaging about prostitution, patriarchal oppresion, sex trafficking, etc. It has no commentary of any substance, and the flashy filmmaking choices exists more as a vibe then in service of those messages. Thats all.

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★

    Dune’s importance as a piece of maximalist cinema is nothing short of overstated. Very much the “I’m not like other girls” of block busters, which if that wasn’t apparent through the film’s presentation is certainly made clear by Denis’s constant attempts to distance himself from Franchise movies like marvel. Regardless, “Dune” delivers everything your typical art house movie snob would want out of a blockbuster. (Very Christopher Nolan-esk). And while the technical merit of the film could be praised to…

    ★★★½

    Ridley Scott really been making girl boss cinema since before women were able to make girl boss cinema.

  • Dave Chappelle: The Closer

    Dave Chappelle: The Closer

    Dave Chapelle presents genuine and heartfelt attempt to reconcile his differences with those he offended in the past while failing to surpass the comedic genius of earlier specials. Of late, Dave Chapelle has rallied against the overreach of cancel culture, which would be admirable if in doing so, he didn’t reveal himself as an edgy contrarian.

  • American Psycho

    American Psycho

    ★★★½

    Insane piece about the fallacy of perfectionism and the confining nature of masculinity. It’s funny becuse this is one of the Rawest and most twisted films I’ve ever seen, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen Willem Defoe act so tame

  • Titane

    Titane

    ★★★★½

    Such an overwhelming experience. Julia Ducournau’s visceral sensibility emanates from every frame of whats easily the most extreme film of the year. Titane’s heart of gold is masked behind a veil of bizarre gore and adultery which is self indulgent, but never gratuitous.

    Gaspar Noé is gonna have a field day with this shit if he hasn’t seen it already.
