    "Do all lovers feel like they're inventing something?"

    Never has a film impacted my senses and emotions more than this one has. After rewatching this almost a year after my first watch, I already want to instantly retreat back into Sciamma's grasp. Portrait is perhaps one of the most deeply impactful and mesmerizing films I've ever seen. What's striking is how visceral and intimate Sciamma's filmmaking really is.

    Genuinely didn’t realise how smart this film is. It’s crazy to say it, but this has such an interesting depiction of the class system and capitalism hahah. Holds up really well and is still so funny. Love a visual reminder that we’re all just cogs in the machine!

    Carpenter’s The Thing follows a simple premise, yet what Carpenter does with this premise makes for an extremely entertaining and fantastic horror film. Carpenter creates a horror that fulfils both the desire to see some great body horror and gore, but also one built around the psychological paranoia and what ifs of becoming the thing. as the film closes to an end, it’s clear that Carpenter wants to create horror through the unknown. We don’t know what this thing is or what it wants, but we know what it does and what can happen if you become it. It’s understandable why this is such a classic.

    It’s fair to say that Pan’s Labyrinth warrants its acclaim and in depth critical study on so many different levels. It doesn’t just operate as a fantastic fantasy film with gorgeous visuals and practical effects, but it also operates as a multilayered and complex narrative centred around intricate thematic detail regarding childhood, war, and death. You can just tell how much passion Del Toro exudes as a filmmaker and how much he put into this film, and it’s inspiring. For a short while I grew tiresome of studying this, I won’t lie, but rewatching it 2 years later, I’ve grown to love this film so much.
