MIDNIGHT BLACK MIDNIGHT BLUE
A man ponders a lost love while going through his days.
This achingly beautiful film is a cinematic poem about love, loss and memory. I absolutely love portions of this film because it gets the emotions so absolutely perfect that I saw sections of my life reflected in them. And yet other moments didn't resonate with me at all as if I was just watching some random stranger talk at me. The result is a film is that in many ways is more like life than any other.
Recommended for those who want a unique experience.
SHALL I COMPARE YOU TO A SUMMER'S DAY
Director Mohammad Shawky Hassan turns his love diaries into a one of a kind queer musical that uses the 1001 Arabian Nights as template.
This truly one of a kind film is a prime example of why we need as many cinematic voices as we can get. This is a film that shows us a vision of the world that is unlike anything we've really seen before. Mixing musical number, flights of fantasy and real world interactions Hassan has made a film that grabs us and pulls us in.
It is a film that is wonderfully alive.
While this may not be for all audiences, for those who want to see a cinematic vision that will knock their socks off should make an effort to see it.
