    Alice in the Cities

    ★★★★★

    art aesthetic: 4/4

    The photography is just gorgeous, the industrial calm world (like Bechers). It's very narrow, plain and smooth.

    story telling: 4/4

    The plot is significantly dedramatized, it feels like Jarmush's Deadman - pure road-movie without much action.

    theme exploring: 4/4

    Man in his early 30-s trying to find himself back.
    Various curious dichotomies:
    - States / Europe
    - being alone / being with someone
    - taking care about yourself / taking care about someone
    - doing what you think you like / doing what you should do

    It's a very existential movie, but at the same time it's natural, calm and not obtrusive

    ★★★★½

    Absolutely astonishing image of a post-soviet Russia. Gorgeous collages of technophilia with a bit of Tarkovsky tones.
    One of the best works of the russian Shvankmajer.

    It's sometimes like "Persona" or "Mulholland Drive". Really nice level of symbolism. The theme of identity is explored just gorgeously
