The Story Of 90 Coins review

In increasingly uncertain times, matters of the heart are hardly spared. There is an ever increasing incongruity between idealism and reality, what we perceive and what we experience, the desire for greater control and the erosion of personal agency in love and life. Michael Wong’s first foray into film with The Story Of 90 Coins…

Best films of 2017

Alright movie lovers 🙂 Here we are again. Honestly, it feels like last week that I did my best of 2016 movies list. I guess time really does fly when we look back. How have you guys been? I’ve been quite caught up with University and haven’t written as many reviews as I would’ve liked…

Lady Bird review; A chorus for youth

With a singular vision to portray her own experiences in her youth, Greta Gerwig has spoken for us all. Greta Gerwig’s heartfelt, funny and deeply resonant film is so great and so full of life and love for the characters she portrays. While Lady Bird may contain several characters archtypes and isn’t necessarily as ground-breaking…

On Body And Soul review; The most important love story of 2017

On Body And Soul, 2017 Berlinale winner for best film, is quite possibly the most beautiful and most important love story of 2017. Centered around the growing relationship between a handicapped man and a woman on the autism spectrum, the hungarian film spotlights characters you don’t usually see everyday dealing with ordeals that we can…

Okja review; Undying love and the sanctity of life.

Okja is a blockbuster type of film with equal amounts of tension and a stirring disquiet. This two-tone approach has come to define Bong Joon Ho’s work. His previous film, Snowpiercer, was lacerating in its social message of class and inequality and sacrificed nothing when it came to dark violence and brutal bloodshed. Delving into…

Lion review; Love which connects us all

If Room had me slobbering last year, Lion is this year’s heartwarming, gut-wrenching and rousingly resounding affirmation of the power of love. Based on the true story of Saroo Brierley, the family drama transcends beyond itself to many others who have lost their loved ones and provides some reprieve to grieving hearts. This isn’t just…

The Handmaiden review; This year’s most depraved and beautiful.

The Handmaiden is one of the finest films you will ever see this year. It is rich with nuance, savagery and ravishing beauty. I have not seen Park Chan Woo’s most famous cult classic Oldboy. But if this is any indication, then Park is a genius. The Handmaiden is straight up badass. Adapted from the…

I’m so hyped for La La Land.

AHHHHHHHHHHHH OMFG. IT YIS HERE. I first saw this trailer on ReelReviewDude’s blog. He’s a great friend and a fantastic blogger with great taste in cinema. Glad we both have this on our MUST WATCH list haha! Hey guys. Yeah. That was me screaming. La La Land is one of the films I’ve been keeping…

Favourite movie quotes

Hi everyone :)) I haven’t posted for a while..in fact I haven’t posted as frequently as previously. But I’ll try to! I’ve been a little busy and a little tired recently and given the lack of post ideas, I found myself stuck when trying to write a post. I’ll be watching Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut…
