    ▶️ Posterity has been on my mind in 2020. More specifically, the idea that what we do now matters for us and the future generations that come after us. In a time where art and the American way of life are threatened by a Marxist groundswell in the culture, posterity matters more than ever. David Fincher’s Mank is all about posterity. With his least commercial film, Fincher has crafted an odd but impressive tale of the work…

    ★★★★

    Tenet- PG-13, 2020
    ▶️ A Ruthless, Calculating and impossibly Opulent globe-trotting espionage piece with a crafty sci-fi element, Christopher Nolan’s latest $200 million dollar epic should just be titled Nolan Uncut. On the page, If ever there was a movie made for me, if ever there was a film that feeds so pointedly off of my primal filmic loves as a cinephile (love for grand filmmaking and the spy genre), it would have to be Tenet. As I sat in…

    I love Andrew Garfield. His latest movie... not so much. We don’t appreciate this bold and daring performer as much as we should. 

    He had 3 masterpieces in the 2010’s- The Social Network, Silence and Under the Silver Lake. I am excited to see what we get out of him in the next decade.

    ★★★½

    Garbage crime of the highest order. This one had some real chutzpah to it. Love the roll that Ritchie is on. A great double feature with “Den of Thieves”.

    ★★★★

    Watched on Amazon Prime

    ▶️ Sound of Metal is a horror movie. The film is the most succinct visual representation of the horrors of deafness I have seen. It’s a nerve-shredding experience that at once made me incredibly thankful for the blessing of hearing while also inciting great turmoil within me as I wrestled with how I would handle the loss of hearing in my life. It Reminded me that I so often take for granted the little things, especially the blessing…

    Mortal Kombat

    Mortal Kombat-R, 2021
    ▶️ Mortal Kombat is a nothing burger. After a rip-roaring opening that felt like “Silence” meets “The Grandmaster” (not kidding about either of those comparisons) the latest adaptation of this incredibly popular video-game franchise falls flat. In what feels like a film directed by somebody who thinks that Deadpool is the pinnacle of cinema and who undoubtedly loved the Dragon Ball Z live action film, Mortal Kombat suffers from a fundamental misalignment between intent and reality. People…
