I’ve been so foolish. I’ve fallen in love. I’m an ordinary woman. I didn’t think such violent things could happen to ordinary people.

Ukraine is Not a Brothel (2013) | feminism and feminist protest should be encouraged and supported, but I’ve always felt unsure about FEMEN, the topless protest group that originated from Ukraine. as one of the best documentaries I’ve watched recently, Ukraine is Not a Brothel boldly explores the organization and uncovers truths about it that provide a deeper (and sadder, honestly) understanding about the place of women today.

The Apartment (1960) | Billy Wilder wrote and directed this film, so obviously, it’s great, but what I found to be really incredible is how it still holds up perfectly—this film is very much a timeless masterpiece.

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) | there is so much to love about this film; most of all I loved being completely drawn in by the characters and stories of this world.

Mrs Brown (1997) | a dull, dry period drama (although lacking the drama bit) that feels strongly of the sort that was made in the mid-90s.

Point and Shoot (2014) | this has received overwhelmingly rave reviews and just won the Best Documentary Feature prize at Tribeca yesterday, and while the footage is incredible, there’s something fundamentally wrong and revoltingly vain about glorifying one reckless and privileged American man-child’s fantasy of becoming an adventurer in a far off land (in this case, Libya) and being a revolutionary in someone else’s war.

Noah (2014) | a part of me is so glad that Darren Aronofsky got the chance to basically make a bold, big ass budget experimental film, but the other part of me feels like it was such a waste of funds due to its batshit insanity, especially in the second half of the film.

Last Days in Vietnam (2014) | this documentary covers the harrowing true story of the evacuation of the American Embassy in Saigon, and while there are some incredible moments, overall the film is a little staid and “tv.”
