Pather Panchali: Song of the Little Road (1955)

I’m not sure why there was a sudden change in film screenings but this film was very heartbreaking and my expectations of what I was going to see were completely diminished after the first 30 minutes. I probably wasn’t the only one that anticipated grand musical performances throughout the film to emphasis the genre of […]

Written on the Wind (1956)

Yay, color film! This film was awesome, I managed to stay awake throughout the whole thing. The cinematography and plot intertwined in a way that made the movie captivating in a sense.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)

The Public Enemy (1931)

I actually enjoyed the film, The Public Enemy because I love badass movies. My favorite part was in the ultimate beginning right before his beating when he asks his father “do you want em up or down?”.  I thought that was hilarious and his facial expressions weren’t out of pain but from urgency, like when is […]
