Brother of the Year (2018)

Director: Witthaya Thongyooyong (as Vithaya Thongyuyong)
Stars: Sunny Suwanmethanont, Urassaya Sperbund, Nichkhu

Jane lives with her brother Chut with her being the only one doing everything around the house. But Chut will need to learn to take care of himself when Jane is about to get married and move to Japan.

★★☆☆☆

I feel scammed after seeing this. It was packaged as a comedy in its trailer, but no, it is a long, dragging drama about siblings, with a mediocre older brothers’ (somehow irrational) issues toward his smart and achiever little sister. Even Nickhun is not enough as a saving grace.

Paterson (2016)

Director: Jim Jarmusch
Stars: Adam Driver, Golshifteh Farahani

A quiet observation of the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.

★★★✮☆

Two things: I just wanted to see Adam Driver as non-Kylo Ren, plus the movie has an element of poetry, so I’m sold. I like the simplicity of the cinematography, and yes, the ~profoundness is a plus points for pretentious pricks like me hahaha. It’s always good to stumble upon films that make you reflect on what you’ve been doing with your life (haha) or those that simply inspire you and make you want to do what you used to love doing.
