Minari ★★★★½

"is that a minari song?"

one of the best films of 2020. one that reminds you that hope lasts forever no matter what arises in our lives to try and halt it, and that the lingering of its warm embrace is a dream itself. not many films can move me to tears from simply hearing the notes of their score, but Lee Isaac Chung's Minari is one of them. i'm so happy this film exists and will undoubtedly build a legacy as one of the most dually gutting and gorgeous stories ever put to screen. like the minari, this film grows in the perfect spot: your heart. virtually flawless.
