Get Out is good but not great; Microaggression in America

Get Out’s been stealing the hearts and minds of audiences all across the board from casual moviegoers to esteemed critics. It’s been hailed as groundbreaking, shocking and a great satire. Many think it’s a deep and provocative representation of prevailing systemic racism in America today. (I would have voted for Obama for a third time!)….

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…

The Killing Of A Sacred Deer review; A metaphor without a beating heart

The Killing Of A Sacred Deer is Yorgos Lanthimos’ new film after Dogtooth and The Lobster and follows the director’s bizarre and uncompromising approach to film. Drawing from Euriphides’ fable, Iphigenia at Aulis, The Killing Of A Sacred Deer is a modern take on ideas of fated tragedy, familial responsibility, human error and the inherent violence…

Menashe review; One of the best movies of 2017

I haven’t been posting lately as I’ve been so busy lately but I have a break of a few weeks so I’m back at watching movies and reviewing them. Hope you guys have been doing great! To kick things off again, here’s a movie I recently watched that was honestly one of the best I’ve…

Mudbound review; Wake up America

Mudbound, one of 2017’s  highly acclaimed films recently released on Netflix, is an interwoven story of American history and life. Race, family and war are big themes being explored with such an expansive vision, and yet the stories that underlie them are so painfully personal and intimate. Dee Rees’ film is not just another ‘black’…

Wind River review; Beautiful and unpretentious.

This poster was made by the talented Eileen at SG_Posters. 🙂 I simply couldn’t resist using it for my review!! Read on for my review. Wind River is my favourite Taylor Sheridan film and one of my favourite films of the year. Yes, I freaking love Wind River!! There’s a certain unpretentious charm about all…

Good Time review; Thrillingly tragic

Good Time, as ironic a title as the Safdie Brothers intended it to be, is a film with no reprieve. Centered around the crime-hustling Connie (Robert Pattinson) who tries to re-connect with his autistic brother after a robbery gone wrong, this non-stop thrill ride is an assault on the senses from start to finish. Films…
