Trailer Reaction: Fast & Furious 8

i think this year i watched more films than i ever did in five years. i watched about 127 new films this year. and thats just NEW films. i tend to watch at least one film everyday before i eventually fall asleep. 2008 wasnt a GREAT year but it was a year of progressing development and experience. i mean every year should be a year of development and experience but this year has a little bit more to offer. i watched everything from foreign to the 60s to indie to blockbuster films. ive been getting lazy the last half year that i didnt actually realize the kind of impact the films that i watched this year had on my life, until now. and to think of it, i have discovered new directors and new films that i now consider my all time favorite because of this year. i guess now i can say i had a pretty good year in the film department.


my all time favorite director, stanley kubrick has had a huge impact in my life due to his iconic films.

those ' i <3 ny' shirts were made for a reason and anyone who buys it obviously buys it for one purpose and one purpose only: CAUSE THEY REALLY DO LOVE NEW YORK! and as a born-californian, i am sad to say that i no longer feel like a true californian after my journey to the big apple. it was such a surreal feeling that i couldnt actually fathom the the reality of the situation. i still cant believe i went and came back from new york so quickly. but i honestly, cannot wait to go back in the spring. tribeca starts the week right after my spring break so im going to have to work my magic and try to work around that. i didnt take many digital pictures but as soon as i get my film photos developed, i will post them.









i just love everything about new york. i love it how everyone wears black. i love it how everyone smokes. i love it how its all gloomy and seasonal. i just love it how it feels so damn real. even if at times it is -15 degrees with wind blowing at about 100 mph.

sjkdfssjdgksjg, and since im back in sunny ol' cali, im going to have to lock myself in my room and really try to complete my essays and portfolio for film school. also restart my membership for netflicks. i really do miss my old cinephile self. i think the only way to actually be productive is by becoming the insanely obsessive film buff that i used to be. if thats what it takes, then thats what i shall become.

and with that said,
new york, i love you!

p.s. i think im going to try to make a foreign language short about ny for my portfolio. hopefully it works out.

since i am already failing school, i might as well just update you of the oscar worthy films yet to come.

wendy and lucy already came out yesterday but kelly reichardt's lastest independent film starring michelle williams is sure to hit close to home. it may seem like a 'into the wild' for girls with a slightly different motive. it is about an alienated woman who decides that there is nothing keeping her in her home state of indiana and sets out to relocate to canada with her trusty dog and companion, and try to potentially seek work at a local fish cannery. just watch the trailer.


or go here...

the trailer oozes doses and doses of vulnerability. when writing this, reichardt thought of the financial crisis our country was going through and the endless amount of victims suffering from its consequences. the last scene is truly haunting to me in that williams projects the downfall of the american middle class workers. it simply isn't enough to just pass by, but the struggle and hassles one encounters ultimaltely, becomes unbearable as you can witness. its filmmaking at its most rawest.
