“Posesif” in the Eyes of a Very Confused Liberal Arts College Student
I came out of the theatre baffled. I spat out words—incoherent ramblings—to my poor non-Indonesian friend who thought this trip is some kind of an Indonesian cultural immersion for him. I watched Edwin’s Posesif last night through a screening held by the Indonesian Film Forum in New York City, and I still don’t know how to…
I’ve been listening to a lot of music this summer. Here are some tracks that left a great impression on me:
(SIFF review) Eighth Grade: The Grandeur of Liminality

Revisiting Moonlight: The Wonder of Staying Alive
I thought I didn’t relate to Moonlight. Man, I was fucking wrong.
Lion: Roads that Lead Home
I’ve been waiting for Lion. I am a big fan of the child-of-two-nations theme in narrative, and this film has been under lots of Oscar buzz recently.
Paterson: The Indispensability of Art
Finally! My first Jarmusch!
Revisiting La La Land: In Defense of A “Bittersweet” Ending
Warning! This post contains spoilers from La La Land, and is intended to be read after you have watched the film until the end. If you don’t want to be spoiled, close this tab in an orderly fashion.

Moonlight: Growing Up Through a Different Lens
Okay. The Golden Globes was last night.
La La Land: Romance and Ambition in the City of Angels
A piece of review offered of this film by David Sexton from the Evening Standard said,“They don’t make films like this anymore.”
