    A gorgeous film about time passing, love, and loss of meaning. Maya Bulgakova carries the film beautifully.

  • Supercool



    It desperately wants to be the next Superbad, but hesitates turning the knob to eleven. And when it does, it's mostly through crude, unimaginative and tasteless jokes (some funny one-liners, though!).

    Props to Miles J. Harvey, a comical genius, and to Damon Wayans jr. trying to pass as a 30-year-old.

    I had some difficulties with this one. Lee likes to toy with mood, atmosphere, style and tone, and I keep losing my grip on what he's trying to do (besides the obvious, borderline-preachy thematics). Blackkklansman suffered from this as well, but Da 5 Bloods is even harder.

    But the more I think about it and the more I've read about him as a filmmaker, the more I respect him doing all those things and keeping me on my toes. He is truly one of the greatest masters at his craft.

    Finally: a biography about a male musician who is an alcoholic but, also, a "musical genius".
