    Before Midnight

    ★★★★

    The Before trilogy really is one of the most emotionally intense cinematic artworks there is. Before Midnight is particularly striking as it is the wanna-be most realistic, and indubitably most saddening of the three films for the protagonists are in conflict for most of its run-time and address their doubts and insecurities in their couple. The dialogues are very profound and relatable, even if you've never been in the characters' situation. It is, without a doubt, a memorable film.

    Booksmart

    ★★★★½

    Booksmart was by far one of the funniest, most joyous movies I have seen in a long time. It staged multiple different and memorable characters thanks to its very efficient characterization. Its humour, pacing and editing made it an amazingly enjoyable experience to watch (even though I was on my phone, with a rather bad Wi-Fi connection) and it felt as though I was watching a classic for the first time. I can't wait to watch it again (and again).

    Rebecca

    ★★★★½

    Truly a remarkable film. From the beginning, I felt almost as if I was a part of the film. Not only does Joan Fontaine's performance make her character very likeable to the audience, but I managed to connect with her through the discovery of the manor and the memory of Rebecca. The cinematography conveys a both eerie and enchanting feeling and the camera work nearly enables us to see the ghost of the infamous woman. This precise technical work perfectly serves the captivating and surprising story and makes this film an absolute pleasure to watch.
