It can be hard to break out of being type-casted in cinema. You audition for a part again and again, only to be told no each time. You keep trying, and you learn to be the part that a production is looking for. Finally, you nail that audition. You do well in the film, let’s say, and you finally get… Read more »

Somewhere in the hustling streets of Paris, in the retro cafés, or behind the penetrable walls of a modern era’s stylish yet melancholic apartments, a radical film movement found the proper soil and materials to build a brand new, epochal but still prophetic landmark of a fresh cultural and sociopolitical consciousness.

There is a fine line between “thorough analysis” and “looking too deeply” when it comes to watching movies. After all, perceiving “The Care Bears Movie” as a Deep State psychedelic-warfare training video is an all too common conclusion made by many a cinephile. Nonetheless, if a movie is well made, its politics, a catch-all term for themes and ideas, can… Read more »

First of all, I’d like to say that I, too, am not the biggest fan of saying something that people hold dear is “overrated.” Especially a performance, for I am neither a performer nor an academic in the field of performing arts.

Even the greatest filmmakers are not infallible.

Nowadays, it’s fun to say “Interstellar” is the film that’s the most incredibly complex, philosophical, and hard to understand. It’s also fun to know that such statement is a fallacy, be it a good movie or not. When discussing difficult cinema, we’re referencing art and poetry. Surrealism, experimentation, fantasy, and puzzles. These are the subjects we are presenting in this… Read more »
