MOVIES WATCHED THIS WEEK
I Lost My Body (2019)
“A story of Naoufel, a young man who is in love with Gabrielle. In another part of town, a severed hand escapes from a dissection lab, determined to find its body again.”
Never before has a story of a severed hand running the streets been so beautiful. This is the best-animated movie of the year one of the best of the decade that I highly recommend. Watching this hand navigate gutters, fight off rats and other obstacles really pulled me into the story that was being told. A fantastic score with a touching story and some solid voice work help make a standout animated film. The only thing that holds it back from being truly great is that the ending didn’t really land with me. It’s on Netfilx. Watch it. (4.25/5)
One Cut of the Dead (2019)
“Things go badly for a hack director and film crew shooting a low budget zombie movie in an abandoned WWII Japanese facility when they are attacked by real zombies.”
It seems like every few years there is a new film to breathe some new life into the Zombie genre and this is one of the best in a while. Highly inventive and hilarious. It’s a fun zombie film that isn’t tied to some kind of commentary. Just sit back and enjoy the unique ride. (4.25/5)
The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019)
“A young man searches for a home in the changing city that seems to have left him behind.”
I didn’t hate this but it ain’t good either. It tries it’s best to be unique and just ends up being pointless with some decent performance and pretty scenery. Just feels aimless and hollow at the end of the day. (2.5/5)
