    The Favourite

    ★★★★½

    "The Favourite", despite it's period setting, is a trenchant and relevant work of cinematic art. With it's incredible trio performances and hearty filling of satirical humor, director, Yorgos Lanthimos manages to smuggle a shred of humanism into this chaotic world of backstabbing, leaving the audience with more than simply the impression that life among royals can be a royally pain in the ass.

  • Fighting with My Family

    Fighting with My Family

    ★★★★

    "Fighting with my Family" embraces the oddity of professional wrestling, while telling a truly inspirational story about one's journey to destiny that can be enjoyed by anybody. With a likably charming cast and emotional drive to make you feel every suplex delivered, the film is a good hearted story that's worthy of returning to the ring for a rematch.

    Velvet Buzzsaw

    ★½

    "Velvet Buzzsaw", while looking like it was filmed with a television budget, is an aimless horror film that offers a half hearted critique on criticism and commercialism without any sort of concrete themes or compelling characters to drive it. Despite the narrative not fully connecting it's message together into one successfully chilling look into the world of pretension and status and having an atrociously slow pace, Jake Gyllenhaal's sweaty obsessive performance is the only real thing to take away from this piece of so called "art".

    Roma

    ★★★★½

    "Roma" feels grandiose, but it stays grounded in a powerful and personal story about family. The exploration of political upheaval, class, and gender inequalities makes this an important film to behold. With all that package in, the story still doesn't lose sight of it's intimate narrative, which in turns makes "Roma" a compelling and emotional journey that was stunningly shot and seemingly honest through it all.
