Going Out of Business

I am proud to announce That despite trying really hard To keep on competing This business is falling apart *** It comes a point in everyone’s journey To stop playing pretend Start valuing your time And decisively put an end *** When all the hard work only yields Lots of broken pieces to repair One...

House of Gucci (2021)

I thought that all characters were very well casted. The chemistry between the actors makes them seem as if they are truly related, although I am still a little confused as to why Ridley Scott (the director) wanted all of the them to fake an Italian accent. Al Pacino does an excellent job portraying Aldo... Continue Reading →

Big Fish (2003)

This is another one of Tim Burton's masterpieces. I really appreciate his eye for detail and the way he invites viewers to immerse themselves into his vision. The cinematography in this movie has magical qualities. I found myself thinking about metaphorical imagery used by Tim Burton to depict how our recollection of personal experiences seem...

Focus (2015)

The story follows Nicky (Will Smith) a veteran thief who meets a grifter, Jess (Margot Robbie). This is a very clever fun comedy packed with action and unexpected twists. They meet in a hotel bar while she is playing a damsel in distress asking to be rescued from a date that has gone sour. After... Continue Reading →

The Queen’s Gambit (2020)

This TV miniseries tells the story of Elizabeth Harmon(Anya Taylor-Joy), a girl living in the 1960's with an unusual gift that catapults her into stardom while at the same starving her from real human connection. I liked the way in which gifted people and their social network are portrayed. It ultimately tells a story about... Continue Reading →

The Father (2020)

Astonishing and heartbreaking performances from Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman. A modern-day masterpiece depicting the fleeting beauty of every minute we fail to appreciate as we don’t fully grasp what we have until is gone. A journey of compassion from both sides of the experience. The story reveals the struggle of a caring daughter as... Continue Reading →

Synchronic (2019)

This is a sci-fi thriller with a very eerie feeling. The plot is a mind-bending exploration of the limits of human perception. What if time as we know it is a lie? A new designer drug is taking over the lives of people by altering the way in which the brain perceives time. The first... Continue Reading →

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

What if you could erase from your memory an intense love affair or an entire relationship? Would you do it? Would you want to forget?

Jojo Rabbit (2019)

This movie is a wonderful political satire based on the 2008 book 'Caging Skies' (Christine Leunens). The story centers around Jojo, a 10 year old boy struggling to conform to the demands of toxic masculinity in Nazi Germany during WWII. This same toxicity serves as a solid foundation for the humor and the love story... Continue Reading →

Russian Doll- (2019)

Feeling stuck? Then this show is definitely for you! This is the child of Natasha Lyonne's imagination who wrote the script and also stars in the series. I absolutely loved her performance, she depicts a confident, tough cookie really well. The plot centers around Nadia, who seems like a typical New Yorker, working as a... Continue Reading →

Parasite (2019)

This movie is definitely a masterpiece sprinkled with darkly playful intelligence that can't be pinned to one genera. Bong Joon-ho (the director) does a fantastic job keeping an air of uncertainty while slowly revealing the true colors of the characters. Vertical space is the key element used to reference class and lifestyle. The film centers... Continue Reading →

The Danish Girl (2015)

In my view this is a true love story, of a love so great that was able to evolve with the individuals as they grew into their true selves. This is a tale of a love that transcends genders, relationship labels and it lasted a lifetime despite the constant pain and disappointment. Click on the title to read the full review.

Fight Club (1999)

Cornelius (the protagonist) lives a relative stable but very lonely life. The film employs many metaphors to describe the journey of a man dealing with onset depression. The denial of his own need for deeper connections pushes him to exchange one addiction for another. Toxic masculinity is the glue that keeps the story together and moves it forward.
