Film Reviews

Like a sip of top-shelf espresso, a movie can linger and inspire days or even years after the experience. The ingredients are the aesthetics – the visuals, sounds, style, language for example – and the meaning that fuels it. I’m no film buff. Yet, the occasional film leaves me in awe and I feel like shouting its praises from the roof-tops. The meaning that outlasts the movie is what wins me. When both are at a peak, it’s magic that I’m determined to capture.
