Pre-2018 Film Reviews
All About My Mother [Todo sobre mi madre]
Bavner Donaldo @ Cinejour (1999) [Indonesian]
Appointment in Bray
- Excerpt: A thought-provoking magical film.
Sarah Boslaugh @ TheArtsSTL (1942)
- Excerpt: Cat People is a psychological horror film, so don’t come expecting to see a woman transform to a CGI cat before your eyes. Instead, come for the subtlety and slow-creeping terror and Lewton’s patented combination of fantasy and psychology grounded in real human experience.
- Excerpt: There’s just something about casting a cute fuzzy mammal as the lead in your serial killer thriller that lets the audience know not to take anything too seriously, you know?
You Only Live Twice
- Excerpt: You Only Live Twice was also the first Bond film I ever saw and the one that made me a lifelong if sometimes hesitant aficionado, deeply fascinating me with its vivid, iconographic style, particularly the opening credits with their evocation of dreamlike romanticism and boiling natural force.
