    “I’d rather face a thousand crazy savages than one woman who learned how to shoot.”

    I knew it. I knew this was gonna be my favorite Altman, and I don’t think any other film will top it. Apparently, I have some sort of affinity for films featuring strong themes about women. This film, alongside Persona and Mulholland Drive (as I’m sure is mentioned by many) is among the best films to brilliantly delve into the…

    “The rough stone is inside you. You have to find it and then polish it. It takes time and effort.”  

    Lately I haven’t been writing proper reviews like I used to. Despite the fact that there are a lot of films that I’ve seen recently that shook me to my core and left me speechless; exactly where I need to be to spit a few meaningful words about the movie. I guess I’ve been lazy with the quick ones.…

    Lets be real, Arnold has had the most fun career any actor could ask for. Give me all the gougy eyeballs and mutant head grenades you have. This is how every comedy sci-fi movie should be like. I didn’t even know this genre existed until now.

It was predictable and surprising at the same time. I loved…

    .مين ما سألك شو دينك بتقول له أنا لبناني و هيك قال المعلم حسن

    الفيلم لمسني لأبعد الحدود مش بس لكوني عربي و لبناني، بل لكوني بيروتي و عايش كل أحداث الفيلم. من يوم ما جيت عالدنيا و لبنان تحت الحرب. خلقت بحرب أسمها عناقيد الغضب. اتربيت على أنه لبنان عبارة عن طوائف و ما فيني روح لوين ما كان. لما هاجرنا و تركنا البلد بال٢٠٠٦ لبنان كان تحت حرب اسرائيل. كنت اسمع الصاروخ عمبيمرق من فوق البيت و كنت…

    *The following is my failed attempt at reviewing one of my all-time favorite films. I don't consider myself a critic, nor do my words hold any significant meaning. I just felt the need to talk about this film. It's been a long time coming.*

    “The important thing is we are awake now, and hopefully for a long time to come.”

    Eyes Wide Shut; a term often misregarded and misinterpreted (later on that in the review), is Stanley Kubrick's most…
