    "To my big brother George, the richest man in town!"

    I'm usually not a fan of establishing extra routines or traditions that our lives are already filled with, but It's a Wonderful Life has been a great exception for Christmas and it's absolutely delightful to revisit the film every year. Last year, after my first rewatch, I wrote a short 5-star review about Capra's masterpiece... even though I didn't have time to watch the last few minutes.

    HANAGATAMI

    "Was I truly alive back then?"

    Hanagatami is an unbelievably unique Japanese war period drama only Nobuhiko Ōbayashi could have made. Like no other film before! Ōbayashi is a director that most of the even slightly more active moviegoers know - after all his debut film, the absurd horror comedy Hausu, enjoys from its worldwide cult status. However, how many has seen much else from the…
