    Saving Face

    ★★★★½

    goddamn this was lovely. this film honestly feels decades ahead of its time - absolutely criminal it wasn't properly appreciated back then - but glad alice wu is getting all the love she deserves now.

  • Ryan's Daughter

    Ryan's Daughter

    ★★★½

    trademarks of david lean: magnificent landscapes, lovely, sensuous chemistry between leads, nature shown in all its terror and detail. politically feels middling esp. the way it frames the british + irish conflict -- and unfortunately does affect the centering of the love affair which was otherwise really captivating. robert mitchum is great in this.

    Captain Marvel

    ★★

    honestly can't believe how this has become the epitome of marvel's laziness and absolute zero effort filmmaking: there's little surprises in storytelling, the action sequences feel like they're cut on autopilot, oscar-winning™ brie larson is ~just fine~, and the wink-wink-nods-nods at female stereotypes/male condescension ("you should smile more!!" "don't be emotional!!") are mere throwaway one liners to collect kudos. it's a shame that this one had to be the one with all the "firsts", but i wish they focused on the ~human~ aspect of captain marvel, over her glowy superpowers that really just become silly and inane.
