Spoiler Alert (2022)
They took one of my worst fears and slapped me with it for nearly 2 hours. Lots of tears, and I could’ve done without the childhood flashbacks.
Lady Bird (2017)
Truly took me back to my days growing up as a young girl in catholic school.
But really, everything about this was impeccable. Writing, production, acting. Excellence.
Magical performances. Made me laugh, love, cringe, yell at my phone on a crowded, sleeping plane.

The Rat Catcher (2023)
A glimpse of Wes doing horror… and boy was it spooky.
The Swan (2023)
I just love how Wes tells stories. It feels like how my brain processes narrative, only… on screen.
Sorry to Bother You (2018)
This generation’s Idiocracy.
Beau Is Afraid (2023)
Ho. Ly. Shit.
I agree with other reviews - the first act was the strongest.
Joaquin nails it and I truly appreciate the art… it just didn’t fully land for me.
Killers of the Flower Moon (2023)
Phenomenal performances all around. Just wow. Lily and Leo left me in absolute awe.
Yes, it’s long. But the pacing was masterful and I didn’t feel like anything was extraneous.
The biggest impression I was left with was that everyone involved with this project truly cares about the people and telling their story as powerfully as possible.
The Mask (1994)
Cinematic perfection. Almost.
