    Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles

    ★★★½

    Well animated and acted, but it sometimes felt like the director couldn't really decide whether he wanted a more surrealistic or a more realistic film. I mean, I understand the urge to show a Salvador Dali inspired sequence with "The Elephants" (even though it's a bit anachronistic), but it honestly didn't really add anything to the film.

    That said, I did like it and I appreciated that this film didn't really feel like one big ode to Buñuel and wasn't afraid to show the dark side of the production of Las Hurdes - Tierra Sin Pan.

    Beautiful, sad and romantic. An absolute masterclass how you can say a lot with just the power of cinematography and editing. I absolutely adored it.

    Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

    This thing officially marks the point where Black Mirror changed into Netflix's personal self-congratulatory masturbation porn.

    High Life

    ★★★★½

    This is peak sci-fi in the most classic sense of the term. Fans of fancy space shit and cool future tech need not apply, fans of Tarkovski, Clarke and Asimov will have found their new god.
