    Alien³

    ★★★½

    Again, after the previous movie, Ripley survives the alien horror and goes into cryosleep to be shot into the great wide vastness of space. However, it seems a xenomorph smuggled itself onboard causing the lifepod to crash on a prison planet. And so it rebegins.

    There's a lot being said about this third entry of the Alien franchise. Production and storywise problems, different writers, all ending up to the debut of one of the most stylish directors still at work,…

    1917

    ★★★★½

    Two soldiers on a quest to save thousands of lives with time and some Germans as their main enemy. From the first foot they set towards their task we follow them, seemingly in one take but obviously with the cuts meticulously hidden throughout, through the trenches, in the tunnels, towards the battlefield and a totally destructed village ending where the message needs to be delivered.

    We're onto them literally, like flies buzzing around them, or sneaking behind them as they…

    Mosul

    ★★★

    I thought by myself, let's stay in the region, as I moved from Beirut yesterday to Mosul today. Although the posters are very similar (check them out!), they certainly are a different kind of movie as Mosul is much more action oriented.

    After a gunfight Kawa is recruited by a kind of SWAT team trying to cleanse the city from ISIS warriors. We follow them en route through the devastated city, always being on guard for possible ambushes. It's well…

  • Beirut

    Beirut

    ★★★½

    The poster I'm looking at right now on Letterboxd doesn't do the movie any justice: instead of a silly actioneer it's a well written and decently performed political thriller. For laymen like myself the situation in Beirut is difficult as the situation is quite complicated, but still the story was clear enough to be fully engaging throughout, also due to Hamm's reliability for this kind of roles.

    The Skin I Live In

    ★★★★

    Talk about movies you will not forget having seen them a decade ago, well, this is a perfect example.
    A truly mesmerizing experience, which gets more and more uncomfortable as it progresses.
    Forget the slashers with axes, true horror, that's surgeons with scalpels.

    Inside Llewyn Davis

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It's very rare that you hear a song for the first time that immediately drags you in, music- and lyricswise. But here, this is the case with the opening song. A guy playing the guitar. Heavenly voice. Smoke is blown, drinks are drunk. Eyes and ears glued to the screen.
    And so it continues.

    It's obviously a Coen's world, inhabited by stylishly sharp-dressed and sharp-humored men, scattered with awesome dialogue.

    You know, it's about a musician. Those guys who, when…
