Film Campaigns to Watch: MANUEL, UN VIAJE FANTASTICO

I know it’s been a while, but here is another Film Campaign to Watch! After graduating from high school or college, there is always the question of “Now what?” What do you decide to do after that strange purgatory phase when you’re still trying to figure things out? In the case of 20 year old…

20 Years Of PLEASANTVILLE: Privilege, Prejudice & The Pursuit Of Perfection (REPOST)

20 Years of Pleasantville

This post is a repost of my first article on Film Inquiry. To see the full post click here.  One of the most original and thought-provoking films of all time, Pleasantville has withstood the test of time for its clever use of color to tell its story. Due to its bold visuals, it is a film that…

STAR WARS THE LAST JEDI: Empowering the “Nobodies” (Not a Review)

As indicated by the blog title, I almost exclusively go the theater alone. There’s so much freedom in choosing to see what I want, feel how I want, and process a film how I want when I’m solo. However, there are a rare set of films that shouldn’t be experienced alone- they are meant to…

Redefining Feminism in 2017: Women’s Marches, Hollywood, & #METOO

According to Miriam Webster, FEMINISM is 2017’s word of the year. Prompted by a large series of events, Feminism has become one of the most searched words of 2017.

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE: A Letter to the Black Community’s Outsiders

Dear White People

Back in 2014, I saw the original movie for Dear White People. I really loved the film and its message to the Black community and everyone else in general. When I saw there was going to be a TV show,  I was really excited. I have been waiting for this series for well over a…

GET OUT: Thoughts

Get Out Movie

I was fortunate enough to be part of the first audience- EVER to see Get Out while I was at Sundance. It was the highly anticipated Surprise Midnight screening of the year, and I had no idea what to expect since I played movie Russian Roulette while purchasing the ticket and had never been to…

Film Discovery: SOUL MAN (1986)

Here’s a (not so) new fact about me: I really love 80’s films. I grew up watching them with my Mom, then discovered some on my own accord. The 80’s were great for original films, especially teen/young adult films. Some of my favorite films from the 80’s are Heathers, Just One of the Guys, Secret…

THE HANDMAIDEN: Review

The Handmaiden Movie

Happy Halloween and happy day off (for me at least)! I’m really excited about the films that are coming out in the next couple of months. Summer is where most of the studio tentpoles are released, but Fall and Winter are where we see awards season contenders- the films that people claim that “no one”…
