  • Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

    Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

    ★★★★★

    Heaven is over-rated. There's nothing there.

    Repetition, reflection, permanence and impermanence. The distant, transient nature of life viewed through a zen lens of lush greenery and peaceful nature. The power of existence and the powerlessness we have over it. Life is different on the precipice of death, a hazy dream that unlocks past and future, a kaleidoscopic existence coalescing into a single moment of reconciliation and understanding. Bargaining with the beckoning void, recalling past transgressions, seeking peace and resolution before…

  • Before Sunrise

    Before Sunrise

    ★★★★★

    Isn't everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more?

    Falling in love is the closest anything in this life gets to magic. Ethereal, ineffable and indescribable, a feeling always just beyond grasp and understanding. It's light and easy, warm and comforting, soothing and reassuring. At the same time it always brings an unmistakable twinge of anxiety, a lingering bitterness in the back of the mind, a budding seed terrified of the feeling slipping away. It's…

    King Kong vs. Godzilla

    ★★

    The four seconds of King Kong stuffing a tree down Godzilla's throat really makes up for the hour and 37 minutes of boring nonsense.

    2046

    ★★★★★

    Love is all a matter of timing.

    Once, in an ancient temple, frozen in time, a secret was whispered. A moment cast into the abyss, a pained, futile attempt to lock something away. A small hole in a ruined wall reflects, leaving a longing hole deep within the soul. A black, aching void, one carved by an endless yearning for a distant memory. It cannot be filled, it cannot be replaced, it is a permanent scar, distorting and twisting everything…

  • Whisper of the Heart

    Whisper of the Heart

    ★★★★★

    I know myself a little bit better now.

    As rain falls softly on leaves gently rustling in the wind and the carefully crafted rooftops of a quiet suburban town, life bustles softly below. Everyone goes through the motions. A man steps off the train on the way to work, a student studies a book carefully in the library, those looking after their homes prepare meals and wash clothes. When the clouds pass and the sky shifts to a beautiful blue…

  • In The Heights

    In The Heights

    ★★★

    Little details that tell the world we are not invisible.

    The power of a place and the persistence of a people, vibrantly and kinetically put to the screen as a foot-tapping reminder to stand for yourself, your community, and your heritage. There's an electric energy that comes along with how brilliantly proud it is, people shouting from the rooftops and flooding the streets with song and dance. A genuinely wonderful experience that bursts with joyous revelry, a group of people…
