    Mass

    ★★★★★

    Mass is a remarkable directorial debut from Fran Kranz as it deliberately examines the aftermath of a tragic incident through the stories of those who were affected. It is a very heavy subject matter made into a tight screenplay filled with emotionally heavy dialogues.

    The film is nearly 2 hours long of talking yet it's not even close to being boring. The powerful line deliveries provided by the four lead actors/actresses whose performances were more than enough to keep you hooked for the entirety of the film.

    I really hope Mass gets some recognition in the upcoming Oscars. Way too good to be ignored.

  • Belfast

    Belfast

    ★★★★

    Belfast is a coming-of-age film viewed from the perspective of a 9-year-old boy, Buddy. Despite taking place amidst a societal conflict, it's mostly a lighthearted family drama with emotional bits thanks to Branagh's personal touches. Wish there was more to it other than charm but Belfast is still a sweet little film overall.

    ★★★★

    Spencer is a really wonderful film. Aside from great camera work and amazing cinematography, there is no denying that Kristen Stewart carried the movie. She deserves her first Oscar nomination or even better, the win itself.

    Weirdly enough this really stressed me out. The close-up shots while intense jazz music plays in the background reawaken my Whiplash trauma.

    ★★★★★

    What if my problem wasn't that I don't understand people but that I don't like them?

    Aside from it's intriguing plot, Nightcrawler is an amazing crime thriller that heavily focuses on its character. It follows a business-minded sociopath as he navigate himself through the world of journalism being a freelance photojournalist. Themes of media manipulation is also present in the story.

    I haven't seen a lot of Jake Gyllenhaal's films but holy shit he was phenomenal in this. Riz Ahmed…
