  • Spencer

    Spencer

    ★★★★

    Do you like fancy British people being shitty to one another?

    Do you like it when they do this in lavishly adorned rooms?

    Do you love Christmas?

    If yes to all three, you should definitely watch Spencer.

  • The Hunt

    ★★★★

    Watched after Another Round and really enjoyed this. Another interesting story driven by a intriguing idea at its core.

  • Minari

    ★★★★

    Not quite what I was expecting, but still really satisfying. Great subtle growing up in America moments. Could have been one of those poignant shot movies, but loved  how comfortable it was with being and looking very regular.

  • Another Round

    Another Round

    ★★★★

    Really good. Not entirely certain what my takeaway is supposed to be, but I look forward to thinking it over. Really strong start - good parts in the middle, but drags a little - great finish.

  • The Seventh Seal

    The Seventh Seal

    ★★★★

    Great Middle Ages vibes. Very strange and fun. Sydow and Björnstrand make an interesting knight/squire duo. The play/religious march scene really stuck with me.

  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame

    The Hunchback of Notre Dame

    ★★★★

    Pretty good. More cinematic than most Disney animated features. Frollo is great. The gargoyles as comic relief are underused and feel really out of place when they are. This movie is for kids?
