Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible Fallout
[letterboxd import]


The TITANIC of it's genre. Mission: Impossible Fallout is, to put it lightly, an absolute epic.

I once was captivated by my best friend throughout most of high school, and the way he would describe his infectious love for Terminator 2: Judgement Day. I envied him, and the sheer passion he had for the film. Not to say that cinema experiences haven't shaken and shaped my life; The Matrix, Raiders, Cloud Atlas. All of these and many more have sparked my creativity, interest, obsessions and even captured pieces of my life and shown them back to me in the ways that only film can. However, none of these ever truly captured that unreachable green light that Ricky held in his hands when he talked about the first time he saw that movie,

How he could he ever forget the one experience that changed his life forever?

Tearing through the leather of the seats in the theatre tonight, holding my breath, sighing with relief for a moment only to find the air from my lungs stolen again by a mere film.
Not to exaggerate. But...I found that movie.
