Happy New Year!

I would just like to say thank you to all the support, likes, comments that this blog has received over the past year 🙂 2015 has been just alright. Nothing to rave about nothing to cry about either. As some of you might know, I’m still serving out my term in National Service (14 out…

Tangerine: The transgender indie film that sizzles and hits hard.

How do I put this? I’ve never seen anything like Tangerine. It has everything. And yet, it is like nothing else. For starters, Sean Baker’s film is shot entirely with the iphone 5S. With a limited visual scope, Baker compensates with beautiful natural light and dazzling kaleidoscope-like shots of L.A. But this isn’t even what’s…

The Revenant: Cerebral and visceral.

I can say with confidence that Inarritu’s Birdman has been well and truly beaten by his latest work in The Revenant, at least in my opinion.

Brooklyn: A star is born; Saoirse Ronan captivated us all.

MacBeth: An ode to Shakespeare

I have seen the horrors! What can be more horrific than seeing people doze off a third of the way into the film and many more lifeless, immovable bodies at the end. As the credits rolled, I watched and waited with amusement as no one left the theater. For the minority that enjoyed the film…

Youth: Simplicity

Youth captures the ache of aging, the age of yearning, and the yearn for faded memories. Art-House is found in the overtures of the movie, deftly pointing out the eccentricities of neurosis and personality in the film. Moments can be uplifting but seeded beneath it all is a world of loss, a world of two…
