I have a very special place in my heart for cult and horror movies, but I can shift from Larry Cohen to Kurosawa in a heartbeat.

    Aftersun

    ★★★★½

    As slow paced as the feeling of sunbathing, Aftersun is regardless a captivating movie where a lot of what is happening goes unsaid. It trusts the actors to communicate, and they do so, slowly but surely. The movie tugs at your heart subtly, until the climax offers a release to the sound of "Under Pressure" - a candidate for best musical sequence of the year.
    In the end, you'll be wrecked, musing about the importance of memories and how they…

    Terrifier 2

    ★★★

    This is not my favourite kind of horror.

Era-me difícil vislumbrar uma fórmula fácil para conseguirmos encaixar a companhia desta…

    mother!

    ★★★★★

    It's been two days since I've watched this movie and I haven't stopped thinking about it. What a rewarding movie going experience. I love the multiple interpretations and the interesting conversations you can have around mother! Sadly, these days it's rare to watch wide release movies that dare to challenge you, so to me mother! deserves all the recognition it can get.

    Yes, it is surreal, visceral, and confusing. But it is an enriching and stimulating experience. Allow yourself to…
