    Sid & Nancy

    ★★★★

    Not having seen a film since August, I guess I felt the need to end my hiatus on a special film of sorts. Something that had been high on my watchlist; and Sid & Nancy just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Sid & Nancy is a reimagined take of the demise of Sid Vicious and his girlfriend, Nancy Spungent; who’s details of death is still somewhat vague and unknown. 

    I don’t know if anyone but Alex…

    Didn’t rewatch, just wanted to say I’m proud of my boy Wong-Kar-Wai for receiving an honorary degree from Harvard university yesterday. You do you Wong.

    I’m not sure how you filmed any of this Mr. Reese, but the visuals are lovely in a peculiar way and are complimented by the sinister score accompanying it. Keep up the good work Douglas!

    God-tier Sono.

  • Tag

    Tag

    ★★½

    This is mediocre Sono, I haven’t been let down by one of his films till now; but I mean the guy released like four other films the same year as Tag. Can’t expect them all to be winners.


    Edit: It’s growing on me.

    One of the most emotionally devastating and gut-wrenching films I've ever seen.
