    An Elephant Sitting Still

    ★★★★★

    Directed, written and edited by Hu Bo. One of the most bleak and depressing films I ever laid my eyes on. Suffering depressed humans that simply want to escape reality that are stuck in this small world. I was emotionally drained for four hours. Feeling the rawness and emptiness of our characters captured by Fan Chao. An upsetting score by Hua Lun. Can’t believe what I just witnessed. A must watch for all of its 234 minute runtime. 

    RIP Hu…

  • The Passion of Joan of Arc

    The Passion of Joan of Arc

    ★★★★★

    The Passion of Joan of Arc is based on a real transcript of the trial. Without hearing an actual word from Renée Jeanne Falconetti you can feel the emotions that her character, Joan is feeling with God and against her arbiters. An astonishing soundtrack fitting with its intense scenes of judgement day.

    “and to make one last movie with him.”

    Pain, all I feel is pain but my pain doesn’t even compare to the years of trauma these two specific people had to go through. They went through hell. I’m honestly speechless about the events that occurred.

    We Are Who We Are

    Episode 7 was heartbreaking and their longest episode. Easily the best in the series so far. The promo for episode 8 looks promising.

    ★★★★

    What a great and fun installment. Great success! The daughter, Tutar is great. Really adds up to the Borat sequel. It’s quite funny to me that republican fans don’t quite get what Borat was making fun of during his first movie but Borat 2 makes it more obvious. It’s quite a sad reality that both Borat movies has shown about Americans. Shoutout to the babysitter that was a role model for Tutar. Bless you.

    I saw this film in theaters again and damn, Adam Sandler and the film itself digs deep into your skin with the closeup shots in your face. Intense music. The camera rarely does wide shots and when they do, it’s usually above someone walking on the street or inside the store. The multiple characters talking over each other adds up to the anxiety. Some little details I didn’t notice before cause the film is fast paced. What a thrill ride of a film. I never experienced anything like it before.
