Featured Post: Beautiful Boy (2018)
🏆 OSCAR BUZZ 🏆
Beautiful Boy doesn’t fail to show how expensive drug addiction can be to a family, in the immediate price of drugs and rehab and whatnot, but also in the emotional taxes on family togetherness.
Was the film the stuff of my dreams and the greatest cinematic masterpiece of all fucking time? Sadly, no. Does that matter? Of course not, we still stan.
Telling a story of gentrification, police brutality, and implicit racial bias, this film is all at once confrontational, sometimes humorous, and beautifully poetic.
Sorry To Bother You is really radical and just what the world needs, because what other film since the turn of the century has dared to comment on the encroaching death grip of real, hardcore capitalism?
From the Tumblr fandom scrolling to the Buzzfeed quizzes to the damn K-Pop videos, I was like, “Is this ME?”
All in all, I think The Incredibles 2 was good, especially with some really fun moments and exquisite animation, but not great.
Disobedience manages to juggle all the different elements of the film and deliver an interesting film about Jewish British lesbians!

When you put together a group of mega talented and promising people of color, specifically black people in the case of Black Panther, what you get are astounding, record-shattering results!
