    The Tragedy of Macbeth

    ★★★★

    Sublime and aggravating at the same time, Joel's modernized and subtle adaptation of literary classic about human greed, power, madness and morality champions its own absurdities, shapes this fascinating tale with some audacious choices and makes significant developments in narrative requisites. Actually "The Tragedy Of Macbeth" strips both the story and visuals down to its bare elements conveying the starkness in its environs, and minimalism in cinematic approach, but ultimately furnishes a visually distinctive, modest version of this Scottish play…

    Pleasure

    ★★★★

    Clearly an exceptional exercise in filmmaking- impressive, unblinking and raw, Ninja Thyberg's disquietingly un-erotic debut elucidates her intent from the first moment, doesn't shy away from exploring the rough, unpleasant aspects and sketches an important context highlighting the dreary truths through its narrative.

    ★★★★

    FN- 743/2K21

    Nuanced, unapologetic, sensual and deeply efficacious, Gyllenhaal's impressive directorial debut "The Lost Daughter" is an introspective, haunting study about mothership, one's choices, the dynamics of relations and principally about the inner workings of women. Thematically profound and far-reaching, it seems like whether the storytelling or direction, film oozes director's boldness and conviction through its occurences, while establishing a striking bond between her characters and this thoughtful story.

    Atmospheric, and filled with inventive stylizations and ideas, the fascinating way…
