Silence and the Plight of the Good Christian
I consider myself a believer of the Christian faith, and most films about my faith have been really didactic and preach-y. That’s why I favor films like Silence.
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.”
The Lobster: Every Man Needs A…. Companion?

Teater Koma’s Sampek Engtay: The Tragic Comedy of Cultures
I feel like reviewing Teater Koma’s Sampek Engtay is like reviewing Phantom of the Opera. It has so much media magnitude and general fame, people don’t feel like they need to read reviews anymore, they’ll watch it out of some kind of a pop cultural obligation, and/or curiosity.
Brazil: Love In An Arduous World
Good news: Terry Gilliam can do no wrong.
The Fly: “Oh My God! My Boyfriend Is Turning Into A Fly”
This unlikely feature is probably the most powerful film I’ve seen in a while.

This inspiring story of a HIV-positive mother and her infected daughter fighting false assumptions and stigmas has affected me since the book first came out.
Whiplash: Practice Makes Perfect…. Does It?
Ah, Whiplash. The dark horse of this year’s Oscars race.
Calvary: Wrath, Doubt, and the Loss of Innocence
A brilliant film where peace is in stake as a war of good and evil goes on in the people of a small Irish community.
