    Cléo from 5 to 7

    ★★★★★

    if someone were to ask me if there was a single film that has changed my life, i would say cléo from 5 to 7. before i watched cléo, i didn't watch old films, or foreign films, or anything of the sort. when i first watched this, i was in awe, and it introduced me to a whole new world of cinema that i didn't even know existed. but, most importantly, it also introduced me to my hero: agnès. the…

    (i'm sorry this review is so long i had a lot of thoughts)

    hmm. don't really know how to rate this. i enjoyed parts of it for sure, but this film is very flawed. very, very flawed - both on a thematic and filmmaking level.
