"Cinema is a matter of what’s in the frame and what’s out." -Martin Scorsese
(Favorites are my favorite films I watched last month)
More drugs, more money, more sex, more F bombs, more dwarfs. The Wolf of Wall Street is never afraid to keeps adding more.
Watching Wolf feels like a drug in and of itself. It's intoxicating fun and endless parties provide for one of the most enjoyable viewing experiences out there. Glamorizing the abuse of wealth and power unlike anything before it, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio perfectly capture Jordan Belfort's cocaine and quaalude fueled chaos.
In the hands of someone…
It's that strange age where some are settling into their adulthood and others haven't been able to mature past college yet that Noah Baumbach captures so well in Frances Ha. Much like it's name sake the film is kinda awkward kinda anxious, but also fun and loving.
The heart and soul of the film Greta Gerwig gives the most Greta Gerwig performance ever. She's such a ray of sunshine while also balancing the unease of not knowing what lies ahead.…
Robert Eggers creates to film unlike any other, a film with a disturbing atmosphere that swallows you whole, presenting layers upon layers of conceptual imagery and ideas that all combined into one absolutely polarizing piece of art.
There's so much meaning and so many thoughts packed into this, that lead to many routes of interpretation. However the purgatory explication has always stuck out to me as the one that fits perfectly to the story of The Lighthouse.
