    Between the end of 2019 and beginning of 2020, I had my first real club experiences. You know, going to discos at 10pm with the boys, staying out dancing and drinking, and coming back home…

  • Another Round

    Another Round

    ★★★★½

    Original Title: Druk
    Year of Release: 2020
    Genres: Drama
    Director: Thomas Vinterberg
    Writer: Tobias Lindholm
    Main Cast: Mads Mikkelsen, Maria Bonnevie, Thomas Bo Larsen, Magnus Millang, Susse Wold, Lars Ranthe

    One of my big cinematic shames is that I adored The Hunt when I first saw it in 2013, yet it took me over 7 years to see another film by Thomas Vinterberg! Bless an effective VPN and the Vancouver International Film Festival for making it possible to watch Another…

    The Kid Brother

    ★★★★

    Original Title: The Kid Brother
    Year of Release: 1927

    Writers: Ted Wilde, John Grey, Thomas J. Crizer

    Director: Franz Osten
    Writer: Niranjan Pal
    Main Cast: Seeta Devi, Charu Roy, Himansu Rai, Modhu Bose, Sarada Gupta, Tincory Chakrabarty, Lala Bijoykishen

    One of the beauties of silent films was getting to see mostly visual stories play out on screen, instead of forcing hundreds of dialogue cards that work as substitutes of subtitles. Sadly, A Throw of Dice, while commendable for the level of representation present in it…

    Baby Driver

    ★★★★★

    Right now I got to tell you about the fabulous, most groovy experience of the year:

    74th Venice Film Festival. The man himself, Edgar Wright, was a member of the main jury. Knowing that, I set out immediately to see him, and on my first day (August 30th) I saw him with the rest of the jury members (including Annette Benning and Rebecca Hall). I was stunned, and stood still, with my mouth wide open. I thought it could never…

  • Dragged Across Concrete

    Dragged Across Concrete

    ★★★★½

    Original Title: Dragged Across Concrete
    Year of Release: 2018
    Genres: Crime; Thriller; Drama; Dark Comedy
    Director: S. Craig Zahler
    Writer: S. Craig Zahler
    Main Cast: Mel Gibson, Vince Vaughn, Tory Kittles, Michael Jai White

    Zahler continues to impress as writer-director, delivering a third feature film that is grand in scope (sometimes to a fault) and engaging from beginning to end. The multiple storylines are analyzed in great detail before bringing them together in the explosive third act, crafting compelling and…
