This has got to be one of the most tense theatre experiences I've ever had in my life. I was completely blown away as to how much I felt like I was in the story, and how much it hurt to watch. And how quickly it all goes from bad to worse in unimaginable ways. I really wish I hadn't seen the trailer for this as it gives the general underlying mystery away, but thankfully it's all about the journey. And the journey was a deep, dark, & troubling exploration on grief, trans-generational mental illness, and a touch of supernatural malice. The way these combined and fed off each other reminded me of one of my favourite horrors ever The Babadook (2014), with superb acting in s family drama setting, and a consistently menacing dark presence pulling the strings. The way the camera lingers and holds on the most uncomfortable scenes perfectly captured what it feels like to be in shock after a traumatic experience, and the dream sequences made you question the reality of things, while giving chilling scares withoutthe jump aspect. All relying on atmosphere, editing, and acting. Appropiately, in a family who is struggling for control after having experienced loss and abuse. If it wasn't for the in-your-face ending, this could have been a perfect movie for me. But because the journey was as effective and memorable as it was, I still loved it and would love to see it again in a different context.

Isle of Dogs
(Directed by Wes Anderson)
🐕 🐕 🐕 🐕 / 5
To unpopular opinion, although I appretiate Wes Anderson's unique style and identity (and the widespread admiration), I'm not crazy about his work. Especially in live action, it is just so stylized that I find it distracting and away from the story (although it is meticulously crafted and gorgeous to look at). Getting that out of the way, I am so glad that this felt a lot like my favourite of his, Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009). Being another stop-motion animated feature, I truly believe that not only this is where his style is most suited best with the tactile nature of the aesthetics and setting, but where it truly shines. Although not as memorable as the loveable characters of Mr. Fox, this was just another *fantastic ride. Consistently entertaining, this was both one of the most touchig stories of cross-species friendships, and hilarious dystopian dark comedy. The world feels so fully realized and with a pulse, every scene although set in a drab future, is marvelous to look at and revel in all of the little details. I was so happy while watching this, and could find nothing wrong with it other than my previous bias for the director's style. The use of every actor's distinct personality traits is fully used for a rich palette of interactions of killer comedy. The story of this boy trying to save his lifelong pet was incredibly simple but very well told, and just pure in every sense of the word. I highly recommend this one, and it made me even happier to see a full theatre of people willing to support and celebrate such a laborous and heartfelt medium of animation.
FB just banned me for 24h because of the cover picture of my new article “The Power of Femininity.” So much for the power of femininity!

Com'è cambiato il mondo, e com'è sempre uguale! Case, palazzi, grattacieli, e in mezzo un dramma vecchio come il nostro.
