    The Other Side of Hope

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It's not a movie, Fins are just Like That. (Apparently they love knives??) Everything is so bleak, minimal, and deadpan, but there's a lot of empathy for the characters that still shines through; plus an impressive amount of dark humor. I especially love the scene when Miriam is discovered in the truck; the reunion between the siblings is still "detached-feeling", but warm in the humor that the detached style communicates. I also love the iconic sushi scene. Not since Jiro has a sushi scene been so suspenseful.

    The Enchanted Bell

    ★★★★½

    Pure, fun, beautiful, this short is happiness condensed into a lovely Czech animation. The music is a beautiful, enchanting, Zolo-inspired celebration. I love every second of it.

    This movie made me so happy oh my goodness...the main character was so well-written and cool and there's obviously a lot of love put into the family's dynamics. This was genuinely funny at times, and I love the little quirks the animators added in! Can't wait to rewatch this, there are a lot of details I'm sure I missed.

    The Bride of Frankenstein

    ★★★★

    PEAK old school horror! The gothic opening, the cinematography, the disorienting, out of focus shots, the energy when the doctors animate The Bride, the madness, the makeup and effects, everything totally slaps.

    My biggest complaint: not. enough. of. The Bride!!! Her reveal is amazing; she appears for like 5 MINUTES yet she was the most stunning character of them all! Maybe that's her appeal, her mystique?!
