I’m really digging these new films with a female protagonist. I watched Molly’s Game and I, Tonya a couple of weeks ago and I can’t help but feel satisfaction from watching them. This comes right after watching a couple of action/crime films from the 1990s, where the vast majority were solely focused on males. While their… Read More
Todd Solondz, Director. This was long overdue, it took me way too long to finally see this movie! Totally felt Dawn, a young girl who abides the horrors of growing up. She is singled out to be the joke of the school and the outcast of her own family. She’s an odd fighter, being unappreciative… Read More Welcome to the Dollhouse, 1996

The story was interesting, maybe plain, but filled the gaps nicely. The ending, I wasn’t too sure what to… Read More
Martin Scorsese If I had known it was about Christianity trying to work its way through Japan I probably wouldn’t have watched it. But I did. And no regrets. Except maybe the ending. Still persistent to the idea that God is there, even through silence. And that’s something I couldn’t agree with. I liked the… Read More Silence (2016)
