The Skin I Live In
Skin (2018)
The Wailing (2016)
This is one of the best horror movies I've seen in a while
I'm slowly getting addicted to South Korean cinema 😳
Paradise Hills (2019)
Set in a dystopian future, this centres on a girl that gets sent to a reform school for girls. Sounds like an interesting concept and it could have been executed in a similar fashion as the Handmaid's Tale but unfortunately 🤷🏾‍♀️
The One I Love (2014)
Don't even know how to describe how much I loved this movie
Anyway if you're looking for something trippy to watch when you're high, look no further than this!
Swallow (2019)
First ever film I've seen about the rare but fascinating Pica Disorder
Come to Daddy (2019) starring Elijah Wood
Funny Games (2007)
Piercing (2018)
Another really good psychological thriller by this director is the movie The Eyes of my Mother. Definitely one of the strangest I've ever seen
The Devil's Backbone (2001)
Was expecting pure horror because of the movie title but what I got was even better
In the Shadow of the Moon (2019)
The movie was generally entertaining with an interesting plot
My only complaint is that the storytelling technique was too linear
It's available on Netflix
The Art of Self Defense (2019) starring Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots (love these two together)
This is a great dark comedy that addresses issues such as masculinity and male stereotypes
Nymphomaniac Volumes I & II (2013) directed by Lars von Trier and is the final installment in his unofficial Depression Trilogy (its predecessors are Antichrist and Melancholia)
Nymphomaniac Volumes I & II (Contd)
Okay first of all let me say that the sex scenes in this movie which are very essential to the plot are very graphic (like hard porn graphic) and the director clearly shows everything from intercourse to oral sex to anal etc
Nymphomaniac Volumes I & II (Contd)
So prepare for all that if you're interested in watching this film
However the movie is a lot deeper and more emotional than the premise lets on and it lays bare a lot of sensitive issues such as sex addiction, sexuality and sexual habits...
Nymphomaniac Volumes I& II (Contd)
such as sadism and masochism and sexual perversions like pedophilia (whether it's a sexual orientation or perversion), abortion and abortion rights and the hardships of motherhood
Anyway I quite enjoyed this film and would recommend it 100%
Always Shine (2016)
A chilling take on toxic female friendships
Loved it!
The Clovehitch Killer (2018)
A really great serial killer drama that draws a lot from the story of the real life serial killer Dennis Rader or BTK (Bind, Torture, Kill) as he liked to call himself
I would have however liked to see them delve a bit into the killer's psyche
The Clovehitch Killer (2018) contd..
As that is undoubtedly the most fascinating thing about serial killers
All in all it was a fantastic film and I'd recommend it 100%
The Guilty (2018)
A well balanced Danish Thriller about an emergency services call operator who receives a call that changes his life forever
This film was fast paced and very emotional so if you still aren't into foreign films then what are you waiting for? 🤔
The Photograph (2020)
A beautiful romance drama about love, family and redemption plus it has Lakeith Stanfield and Issa Rae 🤷🏾‍♀️
Endings, Beginnings (2020)
This is a really relatable film about love and our choices
What happens when you meet two people that could potentially be the love of your life? You can't choose so you explore both options because they're essentially the best of both worlds
The Hunt (2012)
A man gets falsely accused of sexually abusing one of his pupils.
This is a haunting tale about the repercussions of false allegations
The Hunt (2020)
Frankly one of the best movies to come out this year (IMO), this is a ruthless satire about political correctness, misinformation in the internet age, the dangers of cancel culture and left/right wing politics
It's absolutely amazing
The East (2013)
A undercover agent infiltrates an eco-terrorist group but discovers that their cause is a lot more righteous and layered than initially thought
This features beautiful emotional performances by Brit Marling (Netflix's the OA), Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard
The Belko Experiment (2017)
A bloody gory thriller about the extremes of human nature
Another more comprehensive take on human nature is a film called The Stanford Prison Experiment which was based off of a real life experiment by the same name
Lords of Chaos (2019)
A biopic based off of the lives of the members of the Norwegian black metal band Mayhem most especially its lead singer Euronymous
Warning: This film is absolutely heart wrenching
On a side note, Rory Culkin is such an amazing actor
White Bird in a Blizzard (2014)
This is a beautiful and emotional whodunit
I love murder mystery films but once I see Shailene Woodley or Eva Green, I click 🤷🏾‍♀️
Detention (2011)
Batshit crazy teen comedy just about sums up this film
Absolutely hilarious
The Lodge (2019)
An amazing psychological horror with slow buildup scares
This bore a lot of similarities to Ari Aster's Hereditary in terms of tone and scenery and also the fact that you don't know what's real and what isn't
Columbus (2017)
Everything was 100% in this film
Set design, photography directing, the use of color in scenes
The performances were also very beautiful and the dialogue was raw and heartfelt
A lot of indie movies deserve more recognition than they get
Miracle in Cell No 7 (2013)
Haven't cried while watching a film in a while but this one did that to me
Funny and heartbreaking all at once 😰
South Korean cinema is really top tier in the industry 👏🏾
The Gentlemen (2019)
I have no idea why the reviews for this are so divisive because this movie was fucking amazing
Had a perfect balance of laughs, action and a solid plot
Definitely 9/10 for me 😌
Emma (2020)
A beautiful adaptation of the Jane Austen novel by the same name
Everything was beautifully done in this film
Set design, amazing performances, costume design and well fleshed out characters
Absolutely loved it
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014)
An Iranian vampire horror unlike any you've seen before
(You may or may not see a skateboarding vampire who wears a niqab and kills men who maltreat women)
Love (2015)
Don't ask me how I keep coming across these erotic (highkey pornographic) dramas
But not unlike Nymphomaniac, this goes beyond skin deep and addresses issues pertaining to love and sex in relationships
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)
I absolutely loved this film. If you're interested in old Hollywood, the Manson family murders and the hippie movement of the 60s, it's definitely for you. However I understand why this movie had mixed reviews (contd)
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019) Contd
This was not your typical Quentin Tarantino flick as it wasn't as dark and raw and that's probably what most people were expecting
Little Women (2019)
Beautiful and emotional film, amazing performances, dialogue, plot and directing
Everything was perfect about this film! Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh deserve all the award nominations they've gotten from it
Climax (2018)
This was really one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Absolute waste of time
A movie that is so self-indulgent that it's pointless
Living in Bondage: Breaking Free (2019)
An odd entry because it's a Nigerian film I know but I actually really enjoyed this movie
It was well directed and acted and even though I didn't see the predecessors, the plot was foolproof
The Vanishing (1988)
Came across this amazing French/German suspense thriller while looking for the 2018 film of the same name (they're unrelated)
This is the third whodunit on this list
Drinking Buddies (2013)
Been getting into mumblecore movies of recent
They're mostly romcoms that focus mainly on dialogue (a lot of which is improv) as opposed to plot and may or may not have a happy ending
Fun fact: This movie had no script and you'd never tell!
Your Sister's Sister (2011)
Another mumblecore movie and the second movie on this list starring Mark Duplass
Upgrade (2018)
An amazing cyberpunk thriller that explores transhumanism in its own way
This concept has been the theme of many movies in recent years like Lucy, Transcendence and Morgan but idk this one just hit different
The Transfiguration (2016)
This is unlike anything I've seen before. There's blood, gang violence, young love and a sick vampire fixation which I know all sound unrelated but they all tie in together in this film to produce a very profound cinematic experience
Solid 9/10 for me
Head Count (2018)
This is a great boogeyman horror movie. The plot, pacing and environment in the film reminds me a lot of It Follows; another really good one that features a boogeyman with a friendly and/or familiar face
