    I Am Cuba

    ★★★★★

    “I used to think, in life, death was the worst. Now I know, in life, life is the worst”

    It’s just a masterpiece innit. I can’t think of a more mesmerising experience in film, to the point where I now want to educate myself on Cuba, its culture and all its values. I don’t think a film has ever grasped me in the way this film did. As a film that’s basically communist propaganda, detailing four different stories conveying the…

    The Irishman

    ★★★★★

    (For my 100th review I wanted to review my favourite film because I’ve watched The Irishman about 4 times in the past year and couldn’t review it because if I wanted to review it I felt I needed to cover all the things that make it my favourite film, which is a lot, hence the length. Although I’m going to try and not reveal too much about it so hopefully there’s no spoilers).

    And before I get into this, shoutout…

    ★★★★½

    Just finished writing my dissertation and decided to fuck my head up even more by watching this film.

    I think this could easily grow on me, it’s living rent free in my head and I’m just wondering what the fuck it all means. I have my own interpretations but I think it’ll take another rewatch and some explanation videos for me to get to understand everything. Although I’m not sure if that’s what this film is supposed to do or…

    Promising Young Woman

    ★★★

    While I think the ending says a quite a lot as to the treatment of incidents similar to the one depicted in the film. It says a lot to the martyrdom and the mental gymnastics that women go through preceding and proceeding these events. And the fact no one takes responsibility really tears away from the victim because there’s no justice. And while this film does deliver on that justice and shows how much needs to be done to get…

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    ★★★★★

    It’s just a masterpiece. Nothing like it. Heavily debated and polarising which I think is why it sticks with me so much. There are so many different ways to view this film and interpret it and it’s probably the first time I saw a film that creates this sort of feeling.

    The music and cinematography and set design and sound design all collaborate in creating such a mesmerising experience. You lose yourself in the vast expanse of space and I…

    Persona

    ★★★★★

    This film says so much but also says nothing and I love how complex and in moments meaningful this film is but at the same time it’s very hard to explain how this film makes you feel.

    The acting is incredible and I fucking loooove the writing. The amount of themes that come across about humanity and what it means to be human. The actions you want to take versus the actions society and people want you to take and…
