    The Elderly

    ★★★½

    Is it a privilege of life to grow old?!

    "The Elderly" tries to challenge the matter of getting old, physically and mentally. Getting old is the matter of solitude and loneliness when life moves at a different pace than what you were younger. This is, per se, a scary concept to execute – the concept of being ignored and pushed aside to make way for the youth of the world.

    This film is a sad atmospheric examination of society's alienation…

    This film raises a question in mind whether it is possible for us to find a way out of this neverending meaningless loop or if we'll have to stay in this prison until we breathe our last breath. Thought-provokong.

Everything about this film is top-notch. Now we know why Angst turned…

    Faust

    ★★★★½

    “He who strives on and lives to strive,
    Can earn redemption still” (V, 11936–7), the end of Act V, Faust.

    Faust, the story of both a hero and an anti-hero at the same time; Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s ageless masterpiece… And off course, Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau’s underrated yet magnificent art of direction, design, costume, makeup, light, shadow, movement, and texture within the frame of upmost importance… which is one of the greatest films of the silent era and a wonderful…
