sun-drenched, Pynchonian, Gould-esque energy in tune with other rocambolesque, deranged noirs of the past

    We Need to Talk About Kevin

    ★★★½

    Quite effective in presenting an uncomfortable and absolutely zero pretentious concept. Tilda is magical representing impulsiveness and despair.

    Fabulous at all times, with unique set-ups and out-of-this-world situations, Bones and All is simply a work of art.

    The Silence of the Lambs filled my expectations. The beauty of this film, among many other things, falls on the naturalness of Jodie Foster and Sir Anthony Hopkins. Their performances don't need melancholy scenes where they demonstrate a thousand emotions to win an Oscar. On the contrary, subtle looks and smart dialogues are enough so that the characters protrude and remain icons for the history of cinema. Excellent in every way.
