    Mee Pok Man

    with this film you kinda see the origin of the aesthetics of the region's cinema as well as the theme and storytelling style. 25 years later and it's still very beautiful.

  • The Thieves

    The Thieves

    I love me some transnational production. at its best, the film has a new flavour from the mixture.

  • Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

    Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

    like Hangover, but better. the dialogue is so natural, the shots and camera movements are beautiful and thoughtful. the actors are amazing. i love everything about it (although might have to minus one point for being a bit... misogynist?)

  • Children of the Sea

    Children of the Sea

    what if we do a ghibli film, but take it all the way? answer: transcendence.

  • His House

    His House

    beautiful and sad. and true. and brave.

  • Soul

    Soul

    I'm impressed by how they managed
    to say all that without getting anywhere near politics, like literally not even once. also, how come they found a way to dumb down jazz to the point of being unappealing? other than that though, great work, i guess.

  • First Cow

    First Cow

    here's to 2020 the year of marxist cottagecore. here's to small busineesses and crafters, we rise!

  • School Town King

    School Town King

    1) education system traumatises all children
    2) government should support art more, actually any other career that doesn't depend on a degree should be supported the same as those that require it.
    3) a documentarian who know the subject they're discussing politically and culturally will make significantly better documentary than this one (and it's a shame because it's already really good)
    4) at least it proves that you can depict poverty without making it a poverty porn

  • A Sun

    A Sun

    would you rather be a person who's perfect that it's impossible to exist, or be a person who's so flawed to the point that feels completely human and also has a room to both grow and fail? (and also the amount of green public space in Taipei I am--)

  • Sound of Metal

    Sound of Metal

    the perfect combination of softness and hardness in Riz Ahmed is really one of a kind.

  • Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey

    Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey

    I guess it's good? Still highly capitalistic as many children films are, but already better than a lot of stuff in the market atm.

  • Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

    Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

    this film represents the direction Netflix wants to go so well, and at the same time the PR around it also says a lot about the company. Both Boseman (may his soul rest in heaven, or wherever he wishes) and Davis are superb though.
