    A Little Testament

    A little birthday gift, I'm finally premiering my graduation film for the world to see!

    It may not be the happiest thing to show on a birthday but it is nonetheless an important personal story that I finally decided to share with a larger audience. It's been on the festival circuit for a little while but I figured it was time to let more people see it and not keep it for the lucky few who could catch it at…

    1917

    β˜…β˜…Β½

    It’s not what a film is about, it’s about how it’s about it. The most complex and original stories could get completely chopped up because of how awfully a film is directed, edited, etc. and a story that has been told countless times before can be given a fresh beating heart by a daring new auteur. 1917, as unfortunate as it may be, doesn’t really tell us anything we didn’t know before. It’s a technical achievement of immense scale which…

    A soft but potent whisper of feminine desires brought to life through poetic musings and the changing of the seasons. Not just a story about two women falling in love despite the societal norms of the time but also a story about how the men of a given society simply couldn’t provide all that women needed to thrive and be happy, even if they wanted to. Its elemental influences often reference the softspoken beauty of Tarkovsky while the…

    Feeling big, small, scared, at ease

    For a film to make me cry is quite an achievement. I have the tendency to keep emotions inside and to myself instead of just throwing them out like that but for a 26-minute short film to make me choke up numerous times throughout by using nothing more than images, sounds, and texts, is nothing short of amazing.

    Mike Mills short film I Am Easy to Find is something close to a…

    Added to: Jim Jarmusch Ranked & Leo's Top 200+ favorites

    I absolutely adore how Jarmusch turns around the idea of Checkov's gun cinematically by letting it go off in the first and second act before finally showing it in the third but simultaneously following the exact idea of Checkov's gun. That's probably one of the smartest jokes I've seen in any film in a long, long while.

    As for the rest of the film, it is Jarmusch through and through. It…
