    Brief Encounter

    ★★★★★

    Outside of the everlasting praise and iconic cultural status, nothing could’ve prepared for how much of a magical experience this would be. Any time I expected an instant of drag or hesitation within the pacing I was quickly proven to be not only false but feel even more entranced by the ongoing moment than the last one. And that’s what Brief Encounter is, a series of events that may not seem exciting or striking but continuously grow on your emotions…

  • Nashville

    Nashville

    ★★★★★

    On the surface, Nashville is an exploration of the country music culture within the 1970s. It isn’t attempting to critique or even study the effects of society at the time but rather embrace them by simply showcasing how a city functions over the course of a few days. Constantly switching between those whose lives beautifully intertwine, it’s easy to find the film excessive or overcrowded, however, that’s the reality of how human beings live. A constant cycle in which everyone…

There were several scenes in which the relationship here worked for me because those moments had a sense of self-awareness to them, putting the tone at ease and having an even slapstick-like comic undertone. The famous bath scene and…

  • Pieces of a Woman

    Pieces of a Woman

    I like to ask myself after watching a movie “Would this movie exist if it wasn’t trying to win any awards?” The simple answer with Pieces of a Woman is no. Despite its heartbreaking themes and amazingly difficult dramatic performances that are consistently impressive and riveting, something about it feels empty. It’s as if you watched these characters go through pain without much reason. I get that this movie is a vehicle for the actors to really do their thing…
