    Inside Llewyn Davis

    ★★★★★

    Sometimes the exact movie you needed at that exact moment naturally comes along and there's really no better feeling in the world. Don't know where Inside Llewyn Davis has been all my life, but I'm glad it showed up now.

  • Marriage Story

    Marriage Story

    ★★★★★

    I hate saying “I’m at a loss for words” as a cop out when writing reviews but I can’t think of a better way to describe my feelings towards this. A dense yet perfect examination of love, what it means to love, what it means to understand, and what it means to feel alive.

    ★★★★

    Had tickets to see this in 35mm back in the fall but couldn't make it for reasons I completely forget. Having finally seen it I can now say I definitely wouldn't have forgotten about that night if I ended up going. I've never seen lights used like this before, felt like I was discovering a whole new way making movies.

    Anyone who says the only noteworthy part of this film are the first 10 minutes (don't get me wrong, great opening) hasn’t seen the last 10 minutes.

  • Chicken Little

    Chicken Little

    ★★★

    Expect a 2 and a half hour youtube video on Chicken Little at some point in the future because this movie is so much more insane than I remember

  • Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★★

    You ever find yourself staring at a bonfire? Just zoning out and watching the flame change every second, feeling the heat, the energy, the anger, the tension, you get what I’m saying. It’s a beautifully hypnotic thing, and that’s exactly what Portrait of a Lady on Fire is. The only difference being that this brought me to tears in ways a bonfire never could.
