    ★★★

    Hooptober 6: 4/33

    I think this is only the second classic Universal horror film I've watched. Did not quite replicate the greatness of Frankenstein, in my opinion. Lots of smoke and the ol' racism and sexism.

  • Ad Astra

    Ad Astra

    ★★★½

    Liked the first act, loved the second act, and was surprised by how the third act somehow managed to miss the landing. I adored the way the inner conflict of the protagonist was externalised through the chaos of the world, but the narration drifted between poetic and obtrusive. Watch The Lost City of Z for a film that does the same themes better, or High Life for a film with a similar but more interesting visual palette.

  • Dear White People

    Dear White People

    ★★★½

    An ambitious and occasionally messy first feature that revels in making the themes just so blatantly part of the text. I definitely think I'll try the show.
