Fallout (2022)

Vada (Jenna Ortega), a high schooler, begins reinventing herself while re-evaluating her connections with her family, friends, and worldview.

She starts to take risks as she departs from her cozy family routine and makes several snap judgments that stretch her boundaries and propel her in novel directions.

Vada and Mia (Maddie Ziegler) become closer as they spend more time together, and through their shared experiences, Vada gradually redefines herself. This helps her move away from that day and toward living in the present.

The riveting investigation of life’s illogical resiliency and the hope that arises from loss in “The Fallout” is both inspiring and thought-provoking.

Minari (2020)

From the very beginning of “Minari,” by Lee Isaac Chung, a Terrence Malick-like evocation of people attempting to live in harmony with nature, a spell is cast.

The ground seems to speak to the characters as they drive across a lush American environment, and through them, to us.

It is a traditional immigrant tale with particular, frequently novel new features.

A Korean American family with a father named Jacob (Steven Yeun) and a mother named Monica (Yeri Han) immigrated to the United States from Korea in the 1980s.

While there, they worked as chicken sexers in California, dividing young chicks into their respective sexes. Now they have relocated with their two American-born children, a six-year-old boy named David (newcomer) and a serious and mature girl named Anne (Noel Kate Cho).

 It is a well-known immigrant drama story with precise, frequently novel new aspects.

 A Korean American family with a father named Jacob (Steven Yeun) and a mother named Monica (Yeri Han) immigrated to the United States from Korea in the 1980s.

 While there, they worked as chicken sexers in California, dividing young chicks into their respective sexes. 

To establish a 50-acre farm in a small Arkansas town, they have since relocated with their two American-born children, a serious and mature girl called Anne (Noel Kate Cho) and a six-year-old boy named David (newcomer Alan S. Kim).

Schindler’s List (1993)

Schindler’s List was released in 1993. The film was directed and co-produced by Steven Spielberg.

The movie is based on the novel Schindler’s Ark by Thomas Keneally, which tells the true story of Oskar Schindler, a German businessman who saved the lives of Jews more than 1,000 during World War II.

In 1939, with war already raging in Europe, Schindler moved to Poland to start a new life with his family.

Promising Young Woman (2020)

When three regular guys witness a woman at a pub who is visibly intoxicated, leaning over in her seat, and hardly capable of keeping her head up, they approach her.

 Adam Brody’s character, one of them, approaches her with what he believes to be the best of intent. She is in difficulty. He is a great guy. A terrible guy might hurt her horribly if he fails to deliver her home safely.

Of course, that is something that he would never do. He then reveals himself to Cassie (Carey Mulligan), who’s really obviously far too drunk to comprehend what is happening.

 Naturally, he offers that they visit his place before heading home as he assists her. He begins kissing her even though she is barely aware.

 Director-Emerald Fennell

Where to watch – Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max, Peacock

Black Swan (2010)

A ballerina named Nina (Natalie Portman) lives a life in which dance dominates all she does.

Nina is the first person the company’s creative director chooses to substitute his prima ballerina for the opening performance of “Swan Lake.”

However, she has a rivalry with newcomer Lily (Mila Kunis). Lily typifies the Black Swan, while Nina is the ideal choice for the White Swan position.

Nina’s dark side starts to show as the rivalry here between the two dancers turns into a twisted camaraderie.

From the viewer’s point of view, The visceral, emotional, and breathtakingly gorgeous thriller Black Swan is also a movie about the dark our own brains make up when we’re overcome with ambition.

Director-Darren Aronofsky

Where to watch – Hulu, Prime Video, Redbox., Vudu, or Apple TV

Gone Girl (2014)

“Gone Girl” combines art and entertainment, a mystery and a problem, and an unsettlingly confident audience image.

It’s also a movie that switches emphasis and viewpoint so frequently that it could feel like you’re watching five separate, interconnected short films.

At first glance, “Gone Girl” appears to tell the tale of a man who may or may not have killed someone but who is so reclusive and aloof (possibly like Bruno Richard Hauptmann) that even those who firmly believe in his innocence can’t help but worry.

Nick Dunne is his name (Ben Affleck). He teaches at a university and struggles with writing. When his disgruntled wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) vanishes one day, the neighborhood police launch a missing persons investigation.

Gillian Flynn wrote the script for David Fincher’s American psychological thriller Gone Girl, based on her 2012 book of the same name.

Director- David Fincher

Little Women (2019)

Jo March, a writer who lives in New York in the years following the Civil War, is studying art in Paris with her sister Amy.

Amy runs across Theodore, a childhood love interest of Jo’s who eventually turns down his proposal. 

Their introverted sister Beth contracts a life-threatening illness that reunites the family, while their oldest sibling Meg is married to a teacher.

As per the U.S audience’s opinion, it might not be about upsetting the apple cart but rather about the possibilities and hopes within the status quo. Both Alcott’s book and Gerwig’s movie come to an impossible-happy, tidy conclusion. 

 But they both hid a guarantee that it didn’t happen at the expense of Jo’s spirit or will. She continues to be herself.

Director – Greta Gerwig

The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976)

Clint Eastwood’s character Josey Wales stands idly by as Union soldiers commanded by Captain Terrill kill his wife and kid (Bill McKinney). Wales enlists in the Confederate Army to exact retribution.

When the conflict is ended, he refuses to give up, but Terrill murders his fellow troops as they go to surrender their weapons. Wales kills a few of Terrill’s men before fleeing to Texas and trying to start again.

However, the bounty on his head puts him and his new adoptive family in jeopardy.

Simply put, this is an absolutely fascinating tale with two great lead actors in Eastwood and Captain Dan George.

As with most westerns, you might really appreciate the excellent imagery and be pleasantly pleased by the relatively mild language given the film’s release year.

Director- Clint Eastwood

Love Jones (1997)

Young black poet Darius Love Hall begins dating Nina Mosley, a stunning and accomplished photographer, in Chicago.

They hang out with their pal, discussing love and sex, trying to determine whether they have a “love thing” or are simply “kicking it.”

Then Nina puts Darius’ affections to the test and starts a series of romantic problems.

Love Jones, a drama that mostly relies on conversation, runs the risk of lagging behind.

When striving to develop important characters, it’s common for screenwriters and filmmakers to overwrite conversation and then oversaturate a plot with it.

 If the lengthy language had revealed nothing about the characters in the plot, it might not have succeeded here.

However, a lot of the plot of the movie is hastened by the conversations between the cast members, whether it be between Darius and Nina or their various groups of friends.

 Director – Theodore Witcher

Stand By Me (2021)

Play Pusha T’s song “Nosetalgia” with Kendrick Lamar on Siri.

Now, this is how a coming-of-age film should be made. You can stuff your face with The Sandlot.

Your heart will be broken by River Phoenix, the best buddy in the entire world.

 Essentially Jerry O’Connell’s comedic genius in this when some of the audience was young children. Well, he kind of reminds you of Wil Wheaton. 

 Rob Reiner ought to have received at least one nice mention in a Beastie Boys song for his recent winning run.

Director- Zeng Li Zhen, Zhao Li Jun, and Liu Guo Nan

The Fallout (2022)

High school student Vada (Jenna Ortega) starts to remake herself as she reassesses her relationships with her family, friends, and the outside world.

She receives support from new friendships that she unexpectedly and tragically forges. She starts taking risks by departing from her cozy family routine and making a series of snap judgments that push her in unexpected ways.

Vada steadily redefines herself via their shared experiences as she spends more time with Mia (Maddie Ziegler), and as a result, she moves further away from that day and toward living in the present.

“The Fallout” is an engrossing examination of life’s illogical resilience and the optimism that arises from loss.

Director- Megan Park

Where to watch – HBO Max

After Yang (2022)

The best artificial intelligence film in years, After Yang, uses artificial humans to examine everything from memory, to identity, to society and takes the genre to its most basic and personal level. Yang then uses a minimum of exposition to build a tangible futuristic reality.

With modest, understated details like self-driving cars with plants around the seats or by portraying Jake, a man concerned with brewing the ideal cup of tea using traditional ways, Kogonada creates the impression that technology and nature will one day blend seamlessly.

The universe of the movie and its architectural features pop up even more, thanks to Kogonada’s use of simple designs and camera movements, just like with Columbus.

 Director: Kogonada

Where to watch – Netflix

The Outfit (2022)

The Outfit, Graham Moore’s feature film debut, feels like it was purposefully crafted with Leonard’s thinking in mind.

Graham Moore and Johnathan McClain co-wrote the script.

It’s primarily a work of cinematic skill, not art, although that description isn’t inherently negative given how much enjoyment can be found in its creation (though, admittedly, the very last twist pushes things a tad too far). 

We are witnessing numerous disparate elements – characters, hints, and revelations- harmoniously come together as one, much like one of Leonard’s outfits. Who the rat is and who actually has control of the situation is never made clear to us.

 Moore’s camera hardly ever leaves Leonard’s shop, which production designer Gemma Jackson elegantly decks up in rich woods and milky tones, making the entire movie play out within its four walls.

 Director- Graham Moore

Where to watch – Amazon prime 

Downton Abbey: A New Era (2022)

This tour seems to be a farewell one. Nothing endures forever, including stunning interiors, passionate intrigue, and unending rituals of dinners, parties, and balls. 

Most beloved characters receive happy endings. Downton Abbey has always looked both forward and backward since its 2010 debut.

The grasping, vulgar middle classes and the nouveau wealthy are pitted against aristocratic tradition. Respectable work serving a noble family in contrast to other careers’ prospects for self-actualization, Happiness vs. duty.

Both it and its numerous supporters don’t want to make a decision. It aspires to usher in a new era while simultaneously maintaining the illusion of a historical spectacle with everyone in their proper places.

Due to its comforting reminiscence, my friends used to refer to it as Downtime Abbey or even Naptime Abbey. And this movie continues.

 Director – Simon Curtis

 Where to watch – Peacock

Along For The Ride (2022)

Without a doubt, this film exceeded expectations. It’s a coming-of-age friend movie as well as a sweet young romance. There are no baddies, and it’s fascinating to see how each thing works.

For the main character, it conveys a powerful message that being a loner makes it simple-and even encouraged by the media – to believe that you are wiser or better than other people. By overcoming that, she was able to achieve great things.

It was refreshing that the male lead wasn’t only there to win her over. He seems to be benefiting from the connection just as much as she is. 

Director- Sofia Alvarez

Where to watch – Netflix 

Pleasure (2021)

Is it possible to produce a film on erotica without bias? Adult films are ciphers in and of themselves, reflecting not only the hidden dreams and unconscious prejudices of those who create them but also their presumptions about the viewer and what they want to watch.

And in Swedish director Ninja Thyberg’s first film, “Pleasure,” a contemplative look at a field where the extreme is the rule, desire has never been so artificially created. 

Director- Ninja Thyberg

Hustle (2004)

Pete Rose had a career unlike many other professional baseball players, and almost no one who rose to such heights ever fell so severely. 

In 1963, Rose made his major league debut with the Cincinnati Reds at second base.

Nicknamed “Charlie Hustle” for his zeal and vigor, Rose went on to play in 18 All-Star games, win three World Series championships, surpass Ty Cobb’s record for career hits, and be named Sportsman of the Year by Sports Illustrated and The Sporting News in 1975.

Rose signed on as both a player and manager for the Reds in 1984, six years after leaving for another team. 

He played for the squad until 1986 and left his position as manager in 1989.

 Director – Peter Bogdanovich

 Cha Cha Real Smooth (2022)

A wonderful film that is evocative of Richard Linklater’s early efforts and Five hundred Days of Summer (Before Sunrise).

According to the movie, everyone has a number of soul mates that god tries to place into their pathways so they can encounter, but we cannot determine when we meet them. This subverts the idea of a soul mate.

The movie contends that discovering your soul mate doesn’t automatically result in being with them.

Cooper Raiff completely controls the role of a befuddled 20-year-old Andrew, and Dakota Johnson’s Domino is brought to life by her reactions, emotions, and eyes.

 There are several touching scenes, from Cooper and Vanessa Burghardt, who plays Dakota Johnson’s autistic daughter, to Leslie Mann’s reassuring performance.

Director – Cooper Raiff

Parasite (2019)

The Park Family, a wealthy family, recruited the son of the Kim Family, a poor and jobless family, to tutor their daughter.

As a result, the rest of the Kim Family attempted to gain employment with the Park Family by posing as highly qualified individuals and entering their homes.

 Some people might assume it would have a pulp fiction-style plot by hearing the plot, but Parasite is one of the most artistic movies I’ve ever seen. 

The cinematography in this movie was shot in a really unique way, creating some breathtakingly beautiful scenes. The acting was also excellent, and the story was well-written.

 Director – Bong Joon-ho

Where to watch – Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+

The Bothersome Man (2006)

The Bothersome Man is a 2006 French film directed by Michel Gondry. It stars Romain Duris and Audrey Tautou. 

The Bothersome Man is also the first film to be made entirely in the new digital IMAX format.

This movie tells the story of a man obsessed with his ex-girlfriend and how he tries to get her back.

 He has been stalking her for years, but she is now married to someone else. One day, he decides to kidnap their daughter and make her fall in love with him instead of her father.

Director – Jens Lien

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

The banker Andy Dufresne (Robbins), who is sentenced to life in prison for murdering his wife and her boyfriend, is the main character in “The Shawshank Redemption.” 

His defense failed to establish his innocence despite being falsely accused.

Dufresne is a reserved individual who becomes close with Red (Freeman), a respected prisoner in charge of bringing supplies from outside. Over more than 20 years, their bond has grown as Dufresne gains prison-specific knowledge.

This is the ideal movie because Darabont does a fantastic job at revealing the tale and taking his time to craft this unique experience.

Shawshank doesn’t have the vibe of a prison movie. It’s reflective and subdued, concentrating on how these two men relate to one another and how they develop as a unit.

Director – Frank Darabont.

Where to watch – Netflix, Amazon prime

Red Sparrow (2018)

Based on the Jason Matthews book, Francis Lawrence directed “Red Sparrow” from a script by Justin Haythe. 

But it’s impossible to see it without drawing comparisons to “Atomic Blonde,” a similarly strenuous spy thriller starring Charlize Theron from last year.

That movie was about a woman controlling her destiny and utilizing every inch of her body to accomplish her goals.

Dominika is constantly the target of leering, and that masculine gaze gives “Red Sparrow” a skivvy atmosphere from which it never strays since she is told before that her “body belongs to the state,” and this is even was the case before she started training to be a spy. 

Director -Francis Lawrence

Requiem For A Dream (2000)

Requiem for a Dream is a 2000 movie directed by Darren Aronofsky. It is about drug addiction and how it worsens people’s lives.

Requiem for a Dream is not just about drugs. It is about how addiction can change your life in many ways and make you do things you never thought you would do.

Strongly suggest that Drugs are highly awful to you, according to Requiem for a Dream, which is an unrelenting, uncompromising plunge into hell.

Director – Darren Aronofsky

Sleepers (1996)

The movie Sleepers is about four boys who are sexually abused by a Catholic priest and then sent to a correctional facility for the crime of killing him. 

The movie starts with the four boys, John, Michael, Tommy, and Kevin, as they are being sexually abused by Father Bobby (played by Robert DeNiro).

 He tells them that if they tell anyone what happened to them that they will be in more trouble than he is. He also tells them that he will kill their families if they speak up.

Peter Mullan directed the movie, and it stars Anne-Marie Duff, Katie Carr, and Niamh Cusack. The movie is based on the true story of women who were forced to work as slave laborers in laundries run by the Catholic Church.

The Magdalene Sisters tells the story of three young women who are taken from their families and sent to a convent for girls called The Magdalene Asylum because they have had illegitimate children.

They are given no choice but to work at what they call “the laundry” for no pay, where they are sexually abused by priests and forced into slave labor.

This heart-wrenching film shows how these three brave women fight back against this injustice with dignity and grace while struggling with their fears and confusion.

The story follows the lives of two boys, Rocket and Buscapé, both living in the slums of Rio de Janeiro.

He explains that it’s a place where people are born poor and stay poor, but some people have managed to escape poverty through crime and drugs.

The movie then goes back in time to when Buscapé was a little kid and saw his brother die after being shot by an unknown man.

This trauma causes him to become obsessed with guns and violence, so much so that he eventually becomes one of the most feared criminals in Rio de Janeiro.

IKIRU (1952)

A depressing drama portrayal of an elderly office worker who is presented with the possibility of leaving a lasting impact on his community after learning that he has cancer.

In a very touching spiritual work, Kurosawa examines the themes of estrangement, bureaucracy, status, death, and enlightenment. In order to confront the “empty,” Kurosawa discusses concerns of nothingness and the need for life to have a purpose.

The conclusion of the movie is enlightenment. 

The title comes from his conclusion that finding purpose for himself is found in serving others, even at the cost of his own life. IFF in Berlin: Special Senate Award. MFC: Best Screenplay and Best Film Japan

Phantom Thread (2017)

Naturally, the film is superbly produced. Anderson has a stunning visual aesthetic. He shot the film himself with lighting cameraman Michael Bauman’s assistance. 

He frames the scene in a Kubrick-inspired manner yet edits it in a Hitchcock-inspired manner. 

With Jonny Greenwood’s score and the other music (mainly classical) that alternates with it, the film is given a sense of motion.

There are extremely deliberate changes in the instrumentation and orchestration throughout, and this is very much a “crafted movie. 

There is no doubt that the acting is flawless. Day-Lewis is a tightly wound wonder who transforms into an old man cat when he performs for the first time in what feels like a very long time with an accent and vocal timbre that are similar to his natural ones.

Director – Paul Thomas Anderson, and starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville
