I loved a lot of specific scenes and sequences in this movie. I thought they were some of the best examples of Spielberg’s classical filmmaking style and that’s why I enjoyed this film so much. At the same time, I thought the story set up that this movie would be about the relationship someone builds with filmmaking while experiencing a failed family unit, but it didn’t do that to the degree I hoped.
I loved the experience of discovering this film’s world and discovering Lydia Tar’s character. The execution and presentation of Lydia’s experience is full of deeply affecting film techniques and complex ambiguities that invite considered interpretation
Unless you’re someone active on Letterboxd, a member of a film discussion group, or have some friends you can talk about the movie with after seeing it, Banshees of Inisherin isn’t a movie I can recommend.
Emily the Criminal has a narrow scope, but it undeniably presents a common view that our system has been corrupted and largely runs off of exploitation. Following that theme through Emily’s story in this film was engaging, the tension was gripping, and I really enjoyed it.
This is a film that incites an array of conversations – moreso than any other film I can think of in recent memory. I think that’s largely accomplished because of its novel subject material which so excellently touches on points of sensitivity in the current culture.
Spirited Away is the dream project where decades of experience crescendo into a creative magnum opus. It’s why Spirited Away is often hailed as one of the greatest films of all time.
