    Maid

    ★★★★½

    With a great cast, phenomenal acting by Margaret Qualley & Andie MacDowell and the cutest kid you've ever seen in a miniseries, this realistic, heartbreaking and empathetic story about a single mother escaping her abusive husband with nothing but her love for her child, is dealing with subjects like domestic violence, a dehumanized social system, alcoholism, toxic masculinity, PTSD, poverty, homelesness, female empowerment and a sick society in a depressing, cold world which is permanently destroing everything that's been built with…

    «Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.»

    He's living in a run-down social housing apartment, where by day he's listening to classical music, while sucking on a bottle of booze and writing poems or short stories, unless he's stealing some food and wine from the neighbor's room.
    In the evening he's heading to the next bar nearby, where he keeps on drinking and where he's trading some insults with barkeep Eddy (played by Sly's younger…

    | FLASH! AHAAAA, SAVIOR OF THE UNIVERSE!!! ... You know it!

    If not: www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMZo1zLJ4mc

    It was a rainy (sun)day and even though I've seen "Flash Gordon" almost a hundred times, I've tried to recreate a moment—long time gone—a single moment in time, the first time... It was somewhere in the early nineties, when on a lazy Sunday evening I sat in front of the TV all by my own—parents gone for a trip, little sisters asleep—when I first discovered the…

    Free Solo

    ★★★★

    This is about a guy who almost seems incapable of feelings or emotions, who's scared to hug people for almost his whole life, whose only impulse maybe is to prove himself, who just met a beautiful, nice girl, falling for him and soon became his girlfriend – who can't believe that he would sacrifice his life for this, his only passion – is about to climb an almost straight cliff that's about 3,000 feet high (that is about 1.000 meters…

    Bliss

    ★★★½

    Finally got myself vaccinated. It got me a fever for two nights. All by myself, bored, the artist in me wanting to create, but beeing too exhausted, my body wanting to sleep, but couldn't --- so I rolled myself a spliff and fired up this stroboscopic mofo of a f*cking hell ride:

    "Bliss" is a psychedelic, drug induced, bloody gore trip into madness, with colorful, flashing arthouse imagery somewhere between Gaspar Noé, young Abel Ferarra and classy Dario Argento, screaming…

    Hooptober Se7en
    6 decades: 1930s

    I'm beginning my first Hooptober (7.0) with a classic: «King Kong», preluded with a 5 minutes overture, is really about the clash of cultures, the old folk tale about the beauty and the beast and the everlasting urge of civilization to conquer and tame it.
    A group of whites shipping to an island, where an indigenous tribe is worshiping a beast as god—behind a gigantic gate there lies a strange, mysterious, ancient world, where they…
