    I. Intro

    I first watched Raw in October of last year and it hasn’t left my mind since. Like the same curse which is imbued within Justine, the film has seared itself into my brain and is quick to make an appearance in my list when the topic of favorite movies is at hand. The motivation of my first viewing was to…

    I. The MCU

    The French Dispatch

    Starts off so strong with a great first story where Wes Anderson’s style compliments the insanely fun concept of Benicio as an asylum patient. The other two didn’t grab me nearly as much, but that animated car chase was unforgettable!

  • Red Notice

    Pig

    ★★★★½

    One of the most soft and touching films I have seen in some time, Pig confronts every revenge cliché with a tender response. It meets violence by turning the other cheek, heartlessness with empathy, hate with love. When I exited the theater the green on trees were a little more vibrant and the air felt a bit more crisp. A film that will make you take the long way home just for the sake of scenery. The story stays purposefully…

    The Green Knight

    ★★★★

    Much like A Ghost Story, The Green Knight has some brutal dragging. David Lowery does not care. His vision is immovable and it shows in his tone and execution. Trying to digest The Green Knight right after a first viewing feels like being a snake with its mouth wrapped around an elephant’s ankle. The world tramples over you and I must admit it took a while for me to collect my bearings after seeing the film. It leaves you with more questions than answers, and honestly, when’s the last time a fantasy adventure movie has done that?


    GRADE: GREAT
