    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…

  • Paris, Texas

    Paris, Texas

    ★★★★★

    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…

  • Top of the Lake

    Top of the Lake

    ★★★★

    I just finished binge-watching all six episodes of Top of the Lake and I have to admit it has been an emotional rollercoaster. The episodes themselves are very tonally consistent and as the series progresses the tension is slowly but steadily built only to reach several climaxes during the last two episodes. Especially these two episodes and the very end of this first season are hard to stomach. The central performance by Elisabeth Moss is top-notch, she portrays this troubled…

  • Ali: Fear Eats the Soul

    Ali: Fear Eats the Soul

    ★★★★★

    This film has touched me very deeply. It is so saddening and angering to realise that a 45 years old film about prejudicial hatred, xenophobia and racism is more relevant than ever. Despots like Trump, Putin and Erdoğan are leading (more or less) powerful countries and all (in one form or another) propagate these and other toxic values leading to horrendous acts of violence and xenophobia as well as the right wing parties are on the rise in Europe. There…

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    As you probably all know, I’m not a big superhero fan and purposely avoid all major releases by Disney/Marvel, Warner Brothers, Sony and co. So naturally, I was very hesitant to watch last year’s mega-favourite Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. Furthermore, besides not being very enthusiastic about masked men/women/aliens equipped with superpowers and fighting villains to save the earth/universe, Spider-Man has always been my least favourite superhero (without having ever seen a film/series or read a comic with him; his overall…

  • Under the Skin

    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…
