    In this chatty video I review my favorite films of all time, including some 90’s classics, futuristic dystopias, dark comedies, way too many rom coms, and of course some allegories for modern-day capitalism. These are all the movies I loved so much they inspired me to go to UCLA film school so I hope you give them a watch this summer if you have a chance :)

    As a history student it felt like a personal attack you stating that you don't like historical drama that much aha but afterwards I found it interesting to understand why you don't enjoy them all that much

                            When I was a senior in high school, I was with a group of theatre friends and one of them suggested The Double. We were just hanging out for fun, so I remember the movie as being way too dark for the vibe we were in and the one who suggested it kept apologizing every 20 minutes or so because it just made everyone uneasy, BUT looking back it was such a great movie. I'm so glad someone else has seen it, too, because that uneasy feeling is the point of the movie.

                            Any film that can make the audience feel the way the main character is feeling using more than just acting (lighting, editing, sound, etc.) definitely deserves to be on a list like this. Thank you for bringing this movie back to mind.

                              If you love Inception, I WHOLEHEARTEDLY recommend Paprika. It's a Satoshi Kon masterpiece, trippy and weird and really goes in-depth exploring the human psyche ♥ oh, and it looks GORGEOUS

                                                                                                I love all of these movies but snowpeircer was absolute garbage to me lol I felt like I wasted 3 hours of my life. It was corny af and the twists were expected. The rest of the list is absolutely amazing. Did anyone else hate snowpiercer as much as I did???? Or is it just me?? Mmmk
