    Suspiria

    ★★★★

    This was probably my most anticipated film of the year (right after that follow Strickland’s In Fabric and McPhail’s Anna and the Apocalypse; I still have to see both) and I actually don’t know where to start here. The first thing I want to mention is that I was glad I saw it on the big screen (a 2 hour train ride aside) and in the original version!

    There is quite a lot to be discussed but I’ll keep it…

    ★★★★★

    This is one of the best films I’ve seen in my life. From the opening shot panning over the deserted Texan landscape accompanied by the guitar sounds from Ry Cooder’s ethereally beautiful soundtrack I knew this film would be something special. And it turned out I wouldn’t be wrong with my notion. This film is perfectly shot, perfectly paced, perfectly scored, perfectly written and the characters are perfectly portrayed by the cast. I regard Harry Dean Stanton as one of…

I enjoy watching ads and trailers before the actual film starts, that is part of the whole cinema experience (at least for me), and this time, the staff from this cinema prepared a short clip explaining the…

    Under the Skin

    ★★★★

    A fascinating film. Scarlett Johannsson gives an outstanding performance as an alien creature seducing Scotsmen (probably my favourite of hers besides Her). The visuals and metaphors of Under the Skin are overwhelming and not easy to decipher upon the first viewing. I didn’t expect it to be as quiet as it was but this element definitely worked in favour of the film primarily focusing on the breathtaking visuals. The accompanying score is wonderfully eerie and contributes to the positively uncomfortable…
