    If Beale Street Could Talk

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    β€œUnbow your head, sister.”

    A swoonworthy, rich, beautifully textured, captivating and utterly authentic poem of a movie. That the Oscars have failed to nominate this for best film or Barry Jenkins for best director over Bohemian Rhapsody is an utter travesty. I was utterly gripped by the spellbinding visuals, astonishing music score and wonderfully open performances from first frame to last - Jenkins has managed to adapt an interior novel from the brilliant mind of James Baldwin with imagination and…

    "This is the last time I'm dying for you."

    Fellow Letterboxd people. I'm seeing a lot of 3 and 3.5 stars for this masterpiece and I'm mad as hell at you.

    I fucking loved every second of this superior, batshit crazy horror/sci-fi/comedy/romance mashup. Every second. I really enjoyed Happy Death Day but this meta-sequel Scream 2/4's it, brimming with imagination (yes, it does reference other films too, but it also is now definitely and defiantly it's own thing), wit, a…

    Hearts Beat Loud

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    β€œThat’s about mom.”
    β€œYeah. And you.”

    I really loved this slightly too simple but beautifully made and spirited film about the love of a dad for his daughter and the music they make, the dreams we have for ourselves and each other, the messy realities of living, and the necessity of saying goodbye. Nice performances - with Sasha Lane a bolt of gold presence - a couple of catchy songs and a moving ending. I feel I see in this…

    Ghosts of Mars

    β˜…β˜…Β½

    Bizarrely amateurish John Carpenter flick, full of nonsensical editing/structure/narrative choices (at one point I was watching a scene that was a flashback, within a flashback... within a flashback), and a music score that sounds like an instrumental Limp Bizkit album. The story is bobbins of the highest order, and some of the acting is god awful. However, it IS also fun, and it’s a thrill to have Clea DuVall in a John Carpenter film, and the ludicrous amounts of heads…

    In Syria

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Beautifully made but harrowing film set entirely in an apartment that details at a micro level the incredible hardship of living in Syria. The shooting style and authenticity in the craft both behind and in front of the camera recalls Under The Shadow, and the circular opening and closing shots powerfully bring home the reality that happy endings are unattainable here.

  • Nocturnal Animals

    Nocturnal Animals

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Extremely clever, beautifully shot thriller that matches film within a film theatrics with interesting characters and believable motivations. The cast are uniformly strong with Jake Gyllenhaal especially devastating in a dual role. This film is dazzling and unique.
