Nomadland

Nomadland is a deep dive into a single character without being extremely vocal about that particular character. As Fern leaves from one place to another, we tend to get to know her slightly more. Director Chloe Zhao has this subtle, empathetic approach in her character detailing, which keeps us in that melancholic phase without losing… Continue reading Nomadland




Without Remorse

When the character Thomas Clay played by Guy Pearce, talks to Michael B Jordan’s John Kelly explaining how a country like the USA needs something like a war to keep its people unified against a common enemy, you sort of realize the dark spaces behind the wars we witness in this world. But sadly, in… Continue reading Without Remorse




The Illegal

Written, directed, and produced by Danish Renzu, The Illegal starring Suraj Sharma is an underwhelming take on the other side of the Great American Dream. With the writing simply brushing up on immigrant struggles’ template structure, The Illegal becomes mere documentation rather than a heartfelt story with depth. One has to be so naively ignorant… Continue reading The Illegal

And when things slow down a bit, it starts to navigate into directions that you may not have expected the story to move. And ultimately,… Continue reading I Care a Lot

And watching the movie finally on the big screen indeed gave me the brain exercise I was anticipating. Unlike the other films he has made, which manipulates the viewer into investing… Continue reading Tenet




The White Tiger

The White Tiger, the new Netflix original movie directed by Ramin Bahrani, is that aggressive critique of the class divide in our society. The story is about the determination of someone who knew the uneven social landscape and made the “smart” choice at the right time. It might feel like problematic heroism, but eventually, The… Continue reading The White Tiger




The Midnight Sky

At its core, the Midnight Sky, directed by George Clooney, has a very emotional tale to tell you. If we can consider a movie like Interstellar as a Father-Daughter relationship story, a similar layer of emotion drives this movie. But the film based on the book Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton can’t hold your… Continue reading The Midnight Sky
