Arrival; Quietly breathtaking

First of all, I just wanna thank Eileen (SG posters) for letting me use her awesome poster art. Her works are always so beautiful so check out her website coz you won’t regret it 🙂 Arrival is Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of the short sci-fi novel, Story Of Your Life. If you don’t know who Villeneuve is,…

Introduction to FANA (Film & Nuance Awards)

Hey all 🙂 so if you guys were following me a year ago and read my posts, I did the same thing last year where I give a handful of nominees for each category in film and decided the winner in the said category. I called it it Bear Awards last year because I was so…

OJ: Made In America review

OJ: Made In America is Ezra Edelman’s 8 hour long 5-part documentary series on OJ Simpson, his rise and fall, and the racial and class structure that he very much transcended and defined in a lifetime. Orenthal James Simpson, or better known as OJ or ‘the juice’ has the kind of story that’s not just…

Tower; A genre-blending and life-affirming documentary

Tower is an exceptional documentary piece about tragic events that happened on one inconspicuous afternoon in 1966. It blends both animation and real-life footage in a somewhat surprisingly seamless fashion. The line-artopia style disarms us a little but by the time we get used to it, the point is clear- In a recount of devastating…

Thoughts on 2016 in film

I thought I should post some of my thoughts I’ve been having on the year in film. I haven’t seen Arrival, Moonlight, Manchester by the sea and a few other big films, so I can’t really say which is my favourite film just yet. But I’ve got some musings to ramble on from indie films…

American Honey; On raging desire,roadtrip reflections and rural america.

American Honey’s vibrancy is unmistakable. Andrea Arnold’s perspective on rural suburban America is often interspersed with the ins and outs of a travelling band of teenagers and upbeat soundtracks. As Star (Sasha Lane) seeks a new beginning which brings her both healing and heartbreak, her journey brings about an inward reflection about her place in the entrenched,impoverished…

Book review #1: The Vegetarian

This is my first book review and it shouldn’t really be my first because I should have started this a while back ago! I love books as much as I love movies but I always take too long to read them. I have read a few good ones in the past year, so I figured…

Saturday Music Jams; Throwback R&B and nostalgia folk

Hey guys! Happy new year to all of you and I just wanna wish ya’ll a fantastic 2017. It’s 8 days late now 😛 But still, I just wanna say thanks for all the support you’ve shown me this whole year and since I’ve started this blog. I love movies but I love you guys…

The Birth Of A Nation; Why this film deserves more than it’s getting.

Nate Parker’s movie has been blighted by an insane amount of negativity and flak, rendering it hard for many to see it without later talking about everything else outside of the film. Nate Parker’s rape controversy, how he appeared ‘cold’ when confronted about it, the feeling that he still isn’t quite repentant enough do not do…
