    Devastating in every way possible, this film takes you on a childs journey through a nightmarish reality that continuously breaks him down.

    I’m honestly at a loss of words on what I should even say about the film, it’s all done in such a raw and realistic portrayal of one of the most horrific events in history. Aleksei Kravchenko gives without a doubt one of the best performances I’ve ever seen from a child and just in general. You see…

    ★★★★★

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire is a film that takes it time to create such beautiful moments of love and intimacy. It’s a film that doesn’t fear of being too quiet because there is so much confidence in this story, the directing, and the acting. It’s a film that I have no problem calling perfect.

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire will literally have you gasping at the amount of brilliance it holds with scenes of such beautiful chemistry…

    ★★★★

    Told through such a personal scope, Bing Liu does not hold back on staying true to his story and the story of his friends even when it comes to such tragic and heartbreaking material.

    I went into Minding the Gap thinking it would be about the love of skateboarding and while that can be said about the film it’s more about escapism from traumatic events, it’s about facing trauma head on, it’s about growing up, it’s about a lot of…

    ★★★

    You know for a majority of the film I found everything to be pretty unlikeable but then that 3rd act really puts things into perspective on how kids can idolize people even when they really shouldn’t.

    I love how they use something as silly as a boys love for Michael Jackson into a form of coping with a father figure that is in and out of his life and how he’s blind to his fathers wrongdoings. I can really relate…

    ★★★★½

    I love this film, it’s extremely well edited and the performances by Liota, Pesci, De Niro and Bracco are excellent.

    Seeing the progression of power in this story is not only entertaining but fascinating and it’s all due to Scorsese’s energetic direction. Every single shot is fluid and feels perfectly executed. 

    I know everyone is gonna hate that I didn’t give this film the perfect 5/5 rating but that could easily change with another viewing. Just know that I love this film!

    ★★★★½

    Paul Thomas Anderson takes us on a lush and dreamlike journey through a relationship that continuously feels as though it is getting more and more toxic.

    With every Paul Thomas Anderson film comes great performances and I think this cast does a fantastic job in a much different way than what PTA is used too. This film feels a lot more subdued in terms of performance compared to Anderson’s filmography. Daniel Day Lewis gives a quiet but explosive performance while…
