    Ad Astra

    ★★★★★

    AD ASTRA is a meditation on the harms of emotional repression, the struggles of toxic masculinity and the psychological deterrents of unresolved relationships.

    An opus to the infiniteness of space - a frontier to reflect upon our inner-most feelings that we struggle to repress.

    It brings so much life to our solar system... So much animation amongst the quietness, so much presence among the emptiness... 

    Richter’s score further adds, in richness, to the solar system’s echoes, seemingly fitting in with our larger than life solar system.

    The entire film is just wow.

    The House That Jack Built

    ★★★★★

    "Some people claim that the atrocities we commit in our fiction are those inner desires which we cannot commit in our controlled civilization, so they're expressed instead through our art. I don't agree. I believe Heaven and Hell are one and the same. The soul belongs to Heaven and the body to Hell."

    Lars Von Trier is back, and with much more critical criticism and controversy as ever. His new film (uncut, director's version) caused dozens of walkouts at the…

    ★★★½

    “My relationship with Lost is not your business. It’s extremely personal.”

    Pete: Don't think about Lost today. Tomorrow: Lost. All day. I can't wait to hear about it. Jack? No way. Really? Right now, shower.
    Sadie: I don't make fun of your stupid Mad Men.
    Pete: First of all, I don't get worked up over Mad Men.
    Sadie: That's because Mad Men sucks.
    Pete: What Don Draper has gone through beats whatever Jack is running from on some island.
    Sadie: A…

    Euphoria: F*ck Anyone Who's Not A Sea Blob

    ★★★★

    “[…] there’s a difference between thinking about hurting yourself, and wanting to hurt yourself.”

    It’s beautiful (to the technical aspect of this) but deeply tragic that Jules’ arc in this ends up in an entire circle - back again to where she was before, even if we have explored more of who she is and what led her here.

    Trapped by water, rained in to the claustrophobic framing of her bedroom ceiling-window, she’s become trapped by everything around here, as…

    Tenet

    ★★★★★

    What do you get when you take a director - who has been at the peak of his career for over a decade now, and seems to show no signs of declining or slowing down - and you give him full artistic and creative freedom to dream out his biggest ambition yet - a wholly unique, original, mind-bending twist on the concept of time? You get this epic, immaculate, globe-trotting, genre-bending, spy-inspired, insane masterclass of a film that is essentially…
