“Beautiful”


From the very first minute and throughout the whole film, I was thoroughly enthralled. Nocturnal Animals is superbly filmed and along with the performances from the entire cast, riveting plot, and interesting characters, it’s one hell of a thrill ride. Another thing that I adored about this film other than the impeccable cinematography, phenomenal performances, and engrossing story was the soundtrack. In terms of what the story is about, all you’ll need to know is that it’s about an art gallery owner, played by the wonderful Amy Adams, who receives a book written by her ex-husband Jake Gyllenhaal.

In conclusion, Nocturnal Animals is a phenomenal film and one of the best films of the year! It has a very intriguing story that will keep you on the edge of your seat, incredible performances, exquisite cinematography, a fantastic score, and is masterly directed and written by Tom Ford. I highly recommend you to check this film out as it will definitely be spoken about when the Academy Awards near. Absolutely beautiful and entertaining.

My thoughts on The Birth of a Nation

ENTER SLAVERY 2 LA

“Fantastic”


I really enjoyed this film! I thought that Nate Parker did a terrific job with his directorial debut as well as showing his acting and writing chops. The story is very engaging and compelling, it tells the story of a slave, Nat Turner, played by Nate Parker who leads a slave rebellion. As the film progresses, I never got bored at any point. I was completely engaged and I thought the film was really well paced. In terms of the supporting cast, they were all solid and mostly full of unknowns except for the guy from Preacher and Armie Hammer. In terms of the cinematography, I thought the film was very well shot. The soundtrack was also fantastic.

It’s a very thought provoking/riveting film that gives you insight into how slavery was during the 1800s, the story about Nat Turner and his rebellion and about the inhumane act of slavery/racism in general.
