    XXY

    Wow.

    It's rare to encounter a film that feels like it was made for you. To experience something so personal, so close, and so relatable that it bewilders the mind and leaves you thinking "how does this film actually exist?" When everything resonates with you on such a deep, emotional level, you just have to wonder how other people take in the experience, other people who are not like you. Looking at other reviews for XXY, I can see that…

    If there was one film that I could point at and consider to be a modern-day equivalent of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, that film would be Dario Argento's Suspiria.

    Somehow shot and staged in some otherworldly dimension separate from our own, ethereal in it's construction and similar in idea to Caligari, every single aspect about Suspiria contributes to a feeling of pure dread, unease and alienation; the elaborately lavish set design, the intense art direction (greens and blues and…

    Fallen Angels

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Lost souls drifting through the eternal darkness of the night, looking for connections.


    Angels of a forgotten past, memories that best be never remembered again. Maybe just ghostly remnants when visually recalled, but physically still haunting the present, this moment. Multiple complexities within frame after frame after frame, all telling a different story, all aimless passengers lingering the dying light.


    Soundtracks almost never sound this good; songs within scene, licensed or otherwise, connecting so perfectly with the imagery in motion.…

    The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    A hauntingly vivid, technicolor nightmare that you can't seem to wake up from. HΓ©lΓ¨ne Cattet & Bruno Forzani's second feature-length film The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears enters the mind like a parasite, distributing throughout the bloodstream a sort-of narcotic that first inhibits haziness and uncertainty, before periodically going out for a full-on mental assault through the display of surreal sequences that leaves the host petrified and ultimately shattered; infinitely broken into thousands of microscopic pieces, a state-of-being that brings…

    Watching films like Landscape in the Mist is the main reason why I love this site so much. I don't remember the exact circumstances that led to my viewing of this film, but I know that without Letterboxd I never in a quadrillion years would of ever discovered that this film, or any similar to it (such as Tarkovsky's films), even existed. It's truly a beautiful thing.

    Nostalgia for the Light

    I love it when films feel like they were made for me. As a Hispanic American with heavy Chilean heritage and ancestry, whose mother escaped from Chile to the U.S. towards the beggining of Pinochet's rule, I feel like theirs a lot in this film that I was able to personally relate to. I may not have had the same exact experiences, but I still felt the pain within the words of those who lost loved ones to Pinochet's dictatorship…
