  • The Story of My Wife

    The Story of My Wife

    ★★★½

    What a way to kick off my Cannes experience — scrambling into my dress because I got the ticket pretty late, walking THE red carpet, someone offering me his arm and me thinking that he wanted to “elbow greet” me!!! And of course: the movie. 

    Directed by Ildiko Enyedi, The Story of My Wife revolves around a captain named Jakob Störr who one day decides to marry the first woman who crosses the threshold of the café he’s sitting in. From the beginning,…

  • Autumn Sonata

    Autumn Sonata

    ★★★★½

    The more Bergman films I watch, the more I’m falling in love with his style, his dialogues, his themes, and, in the end, I find myself falling in love with film all over again. Bergman’s work is difficult to digest, but at the same time, or maybe just because it is hard to process, it’s nearly impossible to forget about his films, almost as if not only pivotal scenes, but also seemingly insignificant dialogues were forever engraved in my mind. …

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★★

    It’s hard not to love a film you’ve been wanting to see for over a year, and it’s even harder when it’s one of the most anticipated films in years. Dune is, unsurprisingly, a stellar spectacle (no pun intended) with its stacked cast and crew, picturesque landscapes and chill-inducing soundtrack.

    “DUNE. PART ONE.” Right from the beginning, Villeneuve suggests with little ambiguity that one film won’t be enough to do justice to this epic. Centered around a boy’s coming-of-age as…

  • Her

    Her

    ★★★★

    Having seen countless frames from Her, namely the ones where its unique color palette stood out, I finally decided to give it a watch today. And what can I say — I’m floored. From Joaquin Phoenix’s breathtaking performance to the vivid cinematography, every piece of this film seems carefully crafted and is presented to us in the most beautiful way possible.

    Her takes us on an engrossing journey of self-discovery — of love and what it means to be loved. Right…

  • Another Round

    Another Round

    ★★★½

    Is alcohol beneficial? Is alcohol detrimental? Another Round answers neither of these questions—instead, it tries its best to offer a rounded perspective on what many consider a legal drug. At first glance, the premise is simple: Four friends decide to put a theory to the test by maintaining a constant level of alcohol in their bodies through the day, and for a while, everything seems to go well, maybe better than before, even. As time goes on, however, the initial premise…

  • Soul

    Soul

    ★★★★½

    Over the course of 2020, with one movie after another postponed, Soul has become one of my most anticipated films of the year. I initially wanted to watch it as soon as it came out, but I’ve only gotten around to it now, and what can I say? My expectations were high, especially after seeing the average rating stay at 4.2 despite the increasing views, but Soul managed to blow me away like few movies have.

    What is the point of life? What…
