    this was quite sweet but nothing amazing

    The Fire Within

    ★★★★

    a painfully accurate portrait of a mentally ill man, who lives life with apathy and fails to connect with the ones around him. 
    we watch him meticulously meet people from his past, but his intentions are unclear: does he want to say goodbye or does he hope someone can convince him of not doing what he’s inevitably going to? in these interactions the behaviour people have around depressed people is always the same, some distant pity and a wish of getting away from them.
    the great dialogues and soundtrack by eric satie enrich the story and support those feelings of hopelessness.

    8/10

    ★½

    it’s kinda cute I guess but I don’t care about harry potter. this was obviously made for those die hard fans and to sell merchandise.
    colin farrell was completely wasted!


    3/10 - as a film it doesn’t hold up
