Embrace of the Serpent – Review

When it comes to the Academy Awards, there are a few categories that get unanimous acclaim and yet pitiful audience numbers in viewings. Whether it’s short films (guys, it’s super easy to watch short films. The name is in the title,) or documentaries, there is little viewership and pull despite the gold glory. Best Film in a Foreign Language equally provokes miniscule reaction from the general public despite the nominated joy and critical furore.

With a remarkable 99% on Rotten Tomatoes, Embrace of the Serpent – the film that should’ve won the Oscar – is one that should be viewed countless times.

The undeniable transcendent black and white film is the tale of two stories, separated by time, but slither and coil around one another in an enriching and devastating film. The movie revolves around the last Amazonion Shaman, Karamakate, who wishes to tell his story to two foreign scientists as they hunt for a rare and exotic plant to save the life of one, ravished by illness.

Directed by Ciro Guerra and starring, Jan Bijovet, and Brionne Davis as the scientists, and Nilbio Torres and Antonio Bolivar Salvador as the young and old Karamakate respectively, Embrace of the Serpent a powerful awe-inspiring film developed from diary entries and enriched by impeccable cinematic story-telling.

Embrace of the Serpent is stunning – unequivocally. The poetic film is a visceral experience that grips you from the opening credits right to the end. Two hours doesn’t feel enough as Guerra slips into your bloodstream like a snake’s venom and holds each and every one of your blood-cells. The film is a revelation and an event that all must witness. Though drenched in grey aesthetics, the film is still an opulent and sublime visual entity that enters the psychedelic journeys reminiscent Jaramusch’s Dead Man or Alejandro Jodorowsky’s El Topo. Visually engaging, Embrace of the Serpent is dripping with stunning visuals on every beat and with every second.

The character of Karamakate is such a compelling one. The journey that he takes you on with Guerra’s astute direction enhances the viewing experience and makes the story so palpable that it is impossible not to be affected by it. The stirring performances by Salvador and Torres truly mirror and fuse together to produce an unforgettable screen hero that bounds with quiet, brooding emotion, and growth that encroaches and blossoms within the film. Supported by Davis and Bijovet, Embrace of the Serpent is an astonishing union of promising actors and the imagination of their passionate director.

You’ll be hard pushed to find another movie with such finesse and perfection. The whole cinematic outing knows how to silently and gently move you then throw you completely into madness without a single pause. The tender yet brutal thoughts on colonism and the loss of culture bound throughout the film, rolling through your mind long after the credits, themselves, have rolled on. Embrace of the Serpent is an evocative movie experience and one that will stay with you long after viewing.

Make sure you go submerge yourself in this commanding film, give it the audience that it deserves.


The Shallows – Brand New Trailer!

The ocean is a scary place. A terrifying and scary place. In fact, the ocean boggles our minds a lot because we haven’t explored enough of it: An endless cavern of water that we’ve paddled in less of than we have of space. Hear that? We understand more of the stars above than the worlds below.

So, there is natural terror when it comes to the oceans and tense film The Shallowslooks to capture that.

The film stars Blake Lively as Nancy, a surfer on a secluded beach who is attacked by a great white shark and stranded just a short distance from shore. With salvation 200 yards away, it looks to be a simple swim over; that’s if the vicious creature wasn’t circling…

Blake Lively has matured as a vibrant and prominent actress so having her helm such an engaging thriller is the best thing for this film. There has been a lot of success with thrillers on the sea and this will, hopefully, match the likes of Open Water for its taut, palpitating thrills.

What do you think?

Who you gonna call?

Well, this brand new bunch of ladies as the upcoming comedy film is heading our way with extra slime and ghoulies to spook us! Though there is a lot of controversy surrounding the film, some warranted concern and some absolute cry-babies, a brand new Ghostbusters is coming!

Starring Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Leslie Jones, this homage to the original series could be the funniest film of the year!

This is going to be good, I believe, and hopefully, it’ll prove a lot of people wrong.


When Marnie Was There – Brand New Clip!

When Marnie Was There is set to be Studio Ghibli’s final film. With the studio in serious budgetary issues, the film is supposed to be the closing opus of the cinematic symphony that they have been conducting.

That being said, When Marnie Was There certainly looks exquisite and way to bow out!

The film revolves around a 12 year old who drifts between a salt marsh and dilapidated mansion. However, she soon develops an infatuation with the only inhabitant of an abandoned house named Marnie, our protagonist tries desperately to figure out where she is real or not.

With fans of Ghibli saying a fond farewell to the enchanting studios, When Marnie Was There is definitely a wondrous and epic film to say goodbye.

But, hopefully, not a goodbye forever.
