Film Review- Frances Ha (2012)

Shot blissfully in black and white, Noah Baumbach brings Frances Ha to life in a coming-of-age story for the young adult. I found myself resonating with it when it was all said and done. It's a film that sort of tugs at your youth and what it feels like to struggle and let go. Frances (Greta … Continue reading Film Review- Frances Ha (2012)

Film Review- A Cure For Wellness (2017)

Let's be honest, where does one start with A CURE FOR WELLNESS? For starters, what kind of film is it? Well it is a sci-fi/ mystery/ psychological thriller/ fairy tale/and body horror cluster fuck. It makes way for some critical thinking more toward the end of the film where they finally decide to pull all … Continue reading Film Review- A Cure For Wellness (2017)

Short Film Review- 43,000 Feet (2012)

When statistician John Wilkins is sucked out of a plane at 43000 feet, he calculates that he has exactly 3 minutes and 48 seconds before he hits the ground. I am so glad that I found this eight minute short through a tweet by Tribeca. Honestly, it is a gem. It has beautiful visuals and … Continue reading Short Film Review- 43,000 Feet (2012)

In Damien Chazelle's recent film, a young drummer, Andrew (Miles Teller), enrolls at a very prestigious music conservatory in hopes of making it big. "One of the greats," he hopes. Unfortunately, a cut throat instructor is there to push him every step of the way, and not very kindly. What I love about Whiplash is … Continue reading Film Review – Whiplash (2014)

Film Review- Nightcrawler (2014)

“I will never ask you to do anything I wouldn't do myself.” That rings loud in the words of Lou Bloom, a driven man who is looking for employment in the suburbs of a murky Los Angeles. Persistence. He might as well be the definition picture for the word, because there's no room for a "No," … Continue reading Film Review- Nightcrawler (2014)

Short Film Review- Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) (1956)

In Albert Lamorisse's, Le Ballon Rouge, we find ourselves welcomed into a little boy's adventure with a red balloon in Paris. As the film goes, this balloon suddenly has a mind of its own; stealing the whole show, in fact! What we see is this little boy strolling about, he sees this bright red balloon tied … Continue reading Short Film Review- Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) (1956)

Film Review- Enemy (2014)

Denis Villeneuve has crafted probably one of the most psychologically driven films of the year. After watching this film one night, I was a little on the disoriented side. Truly a mindfuck (for lack of a better word). Enemy unsettles us by opening with some strange, exclusive meeting in a dark room that incorporates spiders. Of … Continue reading Film Review- Enemy (2014)
