The Northman Review |

The Northman Review |

The Northman is an epic Shakespearean tale of revenge that amazes with its impressive photography and production value.  Watching The Northman is the closest thing to traveling through time. The film manages to capture the historical period and mythology of the Vikings with a breathtaking level of accuracy. In this Amleth, a Viking prince, seeks revenge after his father is murdered by his uncle. On a basic level, that synopsis may remind people of Shakespeare’s Hamlet or Disney’s The Lion King, but this film takes its own route. With every single frame the film reaffirms that you are about to…

Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood | SXSW2022

I Love My Dad | SXSW2022

I Love My Dad | SXSW2022

A super cringe, super uncomfortable father/son love story that’s equal parts sick and amazingly tender. A beautiful trainwreck of emotions leading to a crash that will undo you.

Franklin recently attempted suicide and in the aftermath of that failed attempt, while building boundaries and healing, he cuts out his dad for good.

Bodies Bodies Bodies Review | SXSW2022

Hurricane parties aren’t for the faint of heart. They’re also not for fake best friends sitting on lies & trust issues, dripping with toxicity. This is a dirty, sexy WHO-DUNNIT that feels like Euphoria mixed with the manic of Uncut Gems and the camp of Scream. Some of Gen-Z’s worst and richest throw a Hurricane party that tragically ends before it really begins. A group of longtime so-called friends try to reconcile the return of one of their own. Despite their not-so best efforts, a child’s game heightens the rising tension and spills blood between them. The night becomes a…

Sissy Review | SXSW2022

Sissy Review | SXSW2022

Acquired recently by Shudder, even before the festival started, Sissy is following the lengthy and rocky trend of social media horror films, which I haven’t been the biggest fan of. Having said that, I was still excited to see how it was going to tackle the themes of trauma, pressure, and loneliness (which seem to be the main topics in these types of horror pictures). It begins with bright colors and a score that feels like it came out from a Disney Channel film. The sing-songy music cue makes you think that this was a farce on social media, which…

Anonymous Club Review | SXSW2022

Anonymous Club Review | SXSW2022

A few indie artists can express themselves freely in their music like Courtney Barnett. Of course, many artists put their soul into the music they make, but there’s something unique about how Barnett conveys her touching yet arcane lyrics. You may have heard of the Australian singer-songwriter thanks to her hit song “Avant Gardener” from her debut, The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas. The track has a slick indie vibe, which may feel uplifting in the instrumental, but hard-hitting in the lyrics as it explores the difficulty of escaping her discomfort. There are many other examples of this…

The Cow Who Sang a Song Into the Future | Review

Do you remember the last film you saw where, from the first frame, you thought “I don’t know where this is going but I am here for it”. Well, allow me to introduce you to the next one to hit on that level. The Cow Who Sang a Song Into the Future is a fascinating portrait of second chances that keeps you thoroughly engaged from start to finish. A beautiful mystery that reveals itself slowly: small doses cleverly designed to keep you hooked, rewarding you for your patience all along the way. This is one that could go a million…

What Do We See When We Look at the Sky? Review | NYFF 2021

What Do We See When We Look at the Sky? Review | NYFF 2021

What Do We See When We Look at the Sky? is an ode to love at first sight; the moment you close your eyes and open them back again, the film takes over you. It’s a sensory experience with magical realism that’s both, in a sense, familiar and unique.  This is a story about two strangers: footballer Giorgi and pharmacist Lisa. They had three random encounters within minutes of each other because they forgot their paths. Viewing it as a lucky concurrence, they decide to meet the next day at the local cafe. However, their meeting might not occur as…

Parallel Mothers Review | NYFF 2021

Parallel Mothers Review | NYFF 2021

Almodóvar’s switched-at-birth story, Parallel Mothers, is one of his most subtle and less-extravagant outings yet; however, it has his usual dramatic punch and a duet of excellent performances by Milena Smit and Penelope Cruz.  The stylish Spaniard, Pedro Almodóvar, is one of the top-tier international directors working today, delivering a consistent oeuvre throughout his years as an auteur. From Women Under the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988), my favorite, to his first English-language Cocteau excursion, The Human Voice (2019), his works always have a colorful debonair and passion. However, his latest is slightly different, switching his gears and choosing…
