  • The Lighthouse

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★½

    Do it once, it's a fluke but do it twice and it's something else. I believe it is suffice to say that when it comes to recreating a particular time period on film canvas, right down to minutest of details, there is no contemporary filmmaker doing a better job than Robert Eggers. One amongst the three gifted young visionaries of today who are elevating the genre of horror one film at a time, there is no denying that both Jordan…

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    ★★★★½

    A masterwork of first-rate storytelling that presents distinguished filmmaker Bong Joon-ho at the apex of his craft, Parasite is a tale of two families at extreme ends of class spectrum and the chain of events that are set into motion when their paths collide.

    Directed by Fernando Meirelles (City of God), the subject matter doesn't interest me one bit, for matters of God & religion are things I actually…

    Fight Club

    ★★★★★

    I look around, I look around, I see a lot of reviews for this classic. Which means a lot of people have been breaking the first two rules of Fight Club.

    Now if you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to…
