    Blade Runner

    ★★★★★

    If I’m being honest, the first time I saw Blade Runner I thought that it was completely overrated. But upon second viewing it’s obvious that this is one of the most important films of the 20th century and fully deserves all the praise it’s given.

    Despite the decapitations and severed limbs, this managed to be one of the most charming and intimate films of its genre.

    God this is such a great film. Ethan Hawks and Julie Delpy have some of the best on-screen chemistry of any two actors working today. A simple film, but incredibly captivating.

    I don’t normally watch superhero movies, but this was one of the most original, innovative and unique films of its genre. Never was cheesy; every second was put to good use and had some of the best character writing in any superhero movie ever.

    Wow. I’m not even that big of a P.T. Anderson fan, but this was fucking incredible. Superb acting and fantastic pacing made this 3 hour film feel like 30 minutes and still managed to express an abstract deeper meaning without coming off as pretentious. Absolute masterpiece in my book; could not recommend highly enough.

  • À Nos Amours

    ★★★★½

    The first Pialat I’ve seen and I can say that it was one of the better films to come out of this era of French cinema. The film explores emerging sexuality in a very unique and insightful way. Pialat is purposely inconsistent in how he presents the passage of time, which in a way alienates the viewer but also allows for an experience unlike any other coming of age film.

    This movie fucking rocks. I mean the first two where pretty good but this was an absolute masterpiece. The score, the performances, the cinematography, fucking everything about this was amazing. The first film I’ve seen in a long time that made me literally say “Wow”. I’ll be rewatching this over and over for the rest of my life. ♥️

    Wasn’t at all what I expected and I loved it. Not as emotionally charged as Blue, but it still managed to deliver a powerful message. I wish there was a little more character depth although that could be an intentional choice by Kieślowski. Overall, good flick.

    Just rewatched it and I can honestly say it’s so much better the second time around. From Wright’s sick ass editing to his fantastic use of audio clues, a second viewing let’s you enjoy the movie in a whole new way. Killer flick from start to finish.
