The surprise hit from Korea. At first I didn't think much about it, I watch this film (actually a miniseries, but I see miniseries as long films) and ... well, you can tell from the rating.
Some films can hardly be put into words. Some films can only be felt. When I saw Suid Game, I felt everything. Fear and grief. Joy and serenity. Anger and hatred. My eyes partially filled with water. The names of the characters are still…
BASED VON TRIER DELIVERING WHAT THE AUDIENCES WANT AND WHAT THEY WANT IS SEEING CHILDREN GETTING MURDERED WHICH I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT IT SOUNDS PRETTY EPIC TO ME NOT GONG TO LIE
When I first watched The House That Jack Built (2018) (Dir. Lars Von Trier), I called it “a masturbatory, overly self-indulgent, and has the level of pretentiousness-ess equivalent to a person shouting at you with 100 megaphones and at 10 meters in front of you saying…

Wow. What an avant-garde indie film. I was utterly blown away by the kinomatography/camerawork, lighting, set design, framing, composition, visual motifs, colour palette, editing, and mise-en-scène. Incredible & enthralling performances. The film was up there with underrated & overlooked classics…
Watched in the cinema (39th visit in 2021)
What do "Saw", "Insidious" and "The Conjuring" have in common? The three are among the most successful horror franchises of the last 20 years, and director and screenwriter James Wan was at the beginning of all of them. The Australian is a master at pulling original horror material out of his hat that is such a hit that sequels quickly become a fact of life. But instead of then concentrating on the…
" Why did you try to fix the roof ? You don't have to fix it, you have to learn how to live peacefully with this broken roof"
Let it go, learn how to let it go.
He lived on music at full blast. Only silence remains ... A virtuoso film, which transforms the deafness of a drummer into a sensory odyssey.
A heavy metal musician becomes deaf ... Behind this rather enormous argument, a real delicacy is to be…
I have a pretty high tolerance for violence in films, sometimes I actually enjoy it! There's one scene in Bullhead that went too far for me. Because I want to avoid spoilers I can't say much more than it involves a child and it's graphic not only because of what's shown, but because of what's deliberately not shown. I became physically ill and had to stop the film. I came back and finished the rest after I calmed down a…
The Good: Ridiculously funny. Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have a fucking great chemistry together. The whole cast does a fantastic job, but its Michael Keaton who steals the show. The TLC references. The tuna versus lion argument. The whisper fight at the funeral. When Terry (Wahlberg) meets Sheila (Eva Mendes). The entire grandma scene. The Crown Heights rapist. Dirty Mike and the Boys. Christinith. Gator. Desk pop. Soup kitchen. Spite shit. Prius. Bed Bath & Beyond. Rape whistle. A shitload of…
Tarkovsky and the altruism of art
May everything come true. May they believe. And may they laugh at their passions.
Tarkovsky joins a writer, a scientist and a stalker (a sort of guide) on a journey in search of the almost lost and worn-out essence of each of them. The journey is much more important than the scientist for science, the professor for art, and the stalker for faith and religion. It is a real spiritual crisis for each of those…
50% boring 50% insane. NO ONE understands metaphors in this movie: Seagal is holding at gunpoint a guy who has a screwdriver in his hand and he says "This is like bringing a screwdriver to a gunfight." No, it's not LIKE that, it is EXACTLY FUCKING THAT. Then some dude tells Keenen Ivory Wayans "You say tomato..." to which he replies "Yo motherfucker I didn't say tomato, I said terrorists." The absolute most insane dialogue in this movie however, one…
Dogtooth is disturbing. It creeps into your psyche and stays there for days. It plays like an absurdist comedy at first but quickly shows its true colours. It is a gripping, compelling, shocking and extremely sad story of three nameless nearly adult children who live in a world created exclusively by their parents.
By "nameless" I don't mean that we are never told their names; I mean they have no names. The implications of this are enormous (take a minute…
