    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.

    Loved it more the second time and found a lot of flaws the second time. I realized this was my gateway into “””challenging””” films my sophomore year of school, which sounds so lame, but is the truth! For that, I’m grateful this film exists for opening up my palette.

    At this rate I will have seen every best picture nomination twice. But don’t get it twisted, I will
    not be rewatching Ford v Ferrari.

    I’ve realized there’s absolutely nothing holding this back from being a 5 star film.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Cried twice. Once during the ending, and once when I realized Adam Driver is gonna lose to a clown.

    (Saw this in 35mm which was a fabulous time!)
