    let us all cannibalise each other in brutal fashion

    hell but manifested in the image of a decaying hong kong

  • A Man Escaped

    A Man Escaped

    ★★★★★

    completely flawless in execution, simplicity at its most complex. possibly the closest a film can get to being perfect in all aspects

    edit: also bresson would occupy a fifth favourite film spot at all times if LETTERBOXD HAD MORE SPACES TO DO JUST THAT

    Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts

    ★★★★

    horseriding but make it indonesian
    sorta surrealist, tho i wish it had leaned into that aspect more. contender for one of the best looking films i've ever seen, don't watch much films from my mom's home country but hey - this was a welcome surprise in terms of quality and tone

  • I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★½

    this is a tough one to talk about, seeing that it's mostly a visual thesis that can only truly be understood with a thorough examination by one's own eyes. time seems to seep away in a very fractured manner the longer you watch this, but i'm sure that was the intention

    but yeah, it is probably one of the best films this year (not much of a contest tbh)

  • A Whisker Away

    A Whisker Away

    ★★½

    mind-numbingly boring, and here i was - mildly excited by its visuals and narrative a few hours ago, only for it to be squashed as the film went on as it riffed from films much better that have come before to poor effect. it really tries its best to make the characters relatable but alas, they still feel like caricatures at the end of it all

    at least it's pretty to look at i suppose, though it doesn't save it nor redeem it in any way

    i actually chose to watch this over ikiru too smh
