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…

The best films of 2014/15

2014 sets a precedence for high quality movies and filmmaking. Genres were redefined. Movies were introspective, cathartic, smart, tense, nuanced and above all, made bold statements about the human condition. Every film is wonderful in its own unique way, so rankings are entirely subjective and based on overall liking and feel too. So if you’re…
