    Parasite

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    When the screen faded to black and the credits rolled, I sat frozen still, fervently attempting to comprehend what I just experienced. Understanding is futile, which is good because I was far too emotionally transfixed to use my head. Parasite shattered both my anticipation and my psyche; sending me out of the theatre in awe.

    This is the Palme dโ€™Or winning director at his most confident โ€“ which seems sillyโ€ฆ

    Chungking Express

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    "I don't think people are meant to be by themselves. That's why if you actually find someone you care about, It's important to let go of the little things. Even if you can't let go all the way. Because nothing sucks more then feeling all alone, no matter how many people are around." - JD, Scrubs

    I've always felt lonely.

    To varying degrees of course - the presence of family and friends have certainly lessened the impact some days, butโ€ฆ

    Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    "You're all you have, and you never learned to like yourself"

    Ten days and one rewatch later and I finally have some semblance of thought regarding Hideaki Anno's The End of Evangelion โ€“ a stunningly unprecedented masterwork that encompasses ideas both seismic and singular; pushing the boundaries of both animation as a medium and art as a self-reflexive work of growth and introspection. Long before my anticipated viewing of Neon Genesis Evangelion, I knew the esteemed series was more thanโ€ฆ

  • Knife+Heart

    Knife+Heart

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    An ethereal exercise in modern giallo and an audacious ode to the slashers of our past. Somewhere along the line that bridges love and sex is a desire so rooted in emotion that it's impossible to ascertain; an overwhelming sense of longing masked by a desperation that clings onto the the past and its effervescent comfort. For a gay porn producer who is witness to these carnal pleasures on a daily basis, this line begins to lose its hold, butโ€ฆ

    Love, Simon

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    "Sometimes I think I'm destined to care so much about one person it nearly kills me."

    A quick and albeit unnecessary caveat; I'm gay. I came out to my close friends in 2015 and my family a year later. Both were in less than ideal conditions (which allowed this quote to truly hit hard). I've become much more accepting of myself since then, but I still have some changes to make. (including but not limited to my terrible wardrobe)

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ

    Holy shit.

    Into the Spider-Verse bursts through with tremendous exuberance, utilising the medium like no other superhero film I've seen - a bolstering desire to invigorate audiences through its psychedelic and orgasmic visuals, reminding those skeptical (such as my dad) that this is no mere 'cartoon', but rather an immeasurable ode to the conception of these crime fighting sensations that have dominated pop culture for a decade. And in that decade, we have seen an unforseen flurry of features -โ€ฆ
