    ★★★★★

    I am so, so happy I got to rewatch this. The Witch, to me, is a perfect horror movie. It has all the elements I want from one.
    Its atmosphere is pitch-perfect. Within every shot lingers some unseen horror and fear so that even a landscape shot of the woods makes you feel incredibly uneasy.
    Its sound design and score won't allow for a single moment of relief from all the occuring and impending dread. You're constantly on edge and…

    I’m so glad I got to re-watch this modern masterpiece. I first saw it at the Viennese Film Festival in October and it kind of stuck with me ever since.
    After the second viewing, I kind of got the message that this movie is about the gaze and its power. Specifically, the female gaze. This movie is all about visual pleasure and attentively watching someone or something. Be it portraits, landscapes, abortions, books or your secret lover.

    Really cool to see the short that lead to Skate Kitchen, which was one of 2018s best movies!

    ★★★★

    A visual feast that reminded me of Wong Kar-wai in its excessive use of the colors red and green.
    Very dream-like aesthetic and story, which I liked. My stream being annoying and stopping sometimes made it hard to get into the mood, though, which is why I feel like I couldn't fully enjoy this. Probably worth a rewatch in a couple months or so.
    Still, very good and melancholic.

    Judas and the Black Messiah

    ★★★★½

    I don't think I could say anything about the story of Fred Hampton and his utterly cowardly assassination, at the young age of 21, at the hands of the FBI and the Chicago Police that hasn't been said better before.
    What I can say is that I feel like this is probably as good a telling of the story of Hampton, the Panthers and the person that betrayed him that we're gonna get out of a major studio. Big props…
