    "I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, β€œWho then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, β€œWith man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

    The closest cinematic equivalent to L'Avventura that I could think of would be Picnic at Hanging Rock, but unlike the latter which concerns itself with the primary theme of female oppression and nothing much else, L'Avventura is decidedly a bit harder to pin down. That is not to say that the film is an enigmatic puzzle that cannot be made sense of.

    If one were to be brief about it, the film concerns itself with portraying the alienation among the…

    Face Off but make it dumber. It isn't all that well in the plot department. Very run of the mill stuff with a very unconvincing JCVD as a serial killer with mommy issues. What it excels in though is the absolutely carnage it wreaks, not hand to hand combat which is decidedly weak in here - just your standard action. No, what impresses is the stunt work and the absolutely insane levels of danger these folks go through. There were…

    Nothing out of the ordinary, no secret ingredient, just the lean mean killing machine revenge film that nourishes the soul.

    As a film that pretends to talk about profound significant ideas and themes it has nothing to say about anything whatsoever. Every single positive conversation about this film claims that it tackles issues like mental health, class differences and class struggle but it really doesn't. It never really comments on anything, just vaguely gestures about and throws the word 'society' around a few times. Mission accomplished.

    They really showed it to society. What do they mean by society you ask? Well, society! Don't ask bothersome questions and dwell on the implications of that term. We live in it.

    What I liked about this film was Gerard Depardieu's character and the sheer ridiculousness it brings with it. He plays a bisexual guy who rides around on a white horse and talks about how he doesn't do anal anymore because he has a huge dick that has hospitalised a handful of dudes. To top it all of, he is not even relevant to the plot whatsoever. He is just there, vibing and looking beautiful.
