    The Metamorphosis of Birds

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    An ode to time. Family. Adolescence. Loss. Growth.

    A love song, which is conducted to intricately, that is impossible to not be in awe of.Β 

    Simply put, one of the most beautiful films that I have ever seen. The journey that you are taken on within this film is so deeply personal, yet is universal. We get to experience the excitement that these people feel, agonize in their grief, endure their hardships. This might be about the director’s own family, but it could be any family going through this.Β 

    The Metamorphosis of Birds transcends time, language, and emotion. It’s a raw experience. It’s a cleansing experience.

    Climax

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Gaspar NoΓ© is a man who is entirely comfortable with his craft. Climax is a culmination of the works that I have seen from him thus far, an explosive cacophony that only he can make. When this is released here in the US, people are going to absolutely hate it. It's going to be one of the most divisive films in recent history, and rightfully so. Here, NoΓ© is at his most unbridled, offering another horrifying glimpse into his nightmares.…

    Cruella

    I’m genuinely surprised by how much I enjoyed Cruella. Having seen some of the scenes pop up online, I was hesitant to go in, but was excited to see that this actually was a pretty fun film. Was it a needed backstory? Not really, but I’m glad that it’s one of the rare origin films that actually has fun with its story. Emma Stone wouldn’t be the first person I would think of to cast in the role, as I…

  • The Amusement Park

    The Amusement Park

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    A disturbing, yet very human, examination of the elderly and how they fit in society. A wild PSA, but one that still holds relevance to this day. A haunting film in every way.

  • Vertigo

    Vertigo

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Hitchcock is a master storyteller, and Vertigo is certainly one of his best stories yet.

    What makes this film so intriguing is how complex it is. There are so many layers that are slowly revealed that lead to one of the greatest climaxes of all time. Hitchcock's slow burner slowly gives you the information, making you pay extreme attention to what is going on, or else you are going to be lost.

  • You're Next

    You're Next

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    You're Next proves that horror/thriller films can be stunning with the right people making it.

    You're Next is gritty, gory and surprisingly comedic. These elements have been working well together as of late! This film balances everything out and makes sure everything is done at the perfect time.

    After watching this again, I actually enjoyed it more! I saw the comedic parts and just saw how amazing the filming was. Those grey tones and brown times are to die for! Hence, You're Next is one of the best horror/thrillers to come out in a long time.
