    A Fool and His Money

    A great series of firsts! And so lovely to see

  • Nimona

    Nimona

    ★★★★

    Hell yeah!! I still think they should have gotten on with Nimona's original plan of smashing the whole system but hey, this is the next best thing.
    Kid me would have felt less alone with this.

    In Between

    ★★★

    I'm torn. I was torn when the logo of an israeli production team flashed on the screen. I was torn when we see Salma go job hunting, the guy that could hire her asks her if she's south american, she simply says "palestinian", and gets no reaction. Then we see she has been hired.
    I'm torn because in a movie that speaks of liberation, friendship, love, a movie that genuinely made me cry in the end, there's surprisingly little commentary…

    The Boy and the Heron

    ★★★

    Stylistically, visually and artistically perfect. But removing the layer of nostalgia that kept me glued to the screen, i didn't find the story interesting enough to really appreciate it and connect with the plot.
    A dream yes, but something closed off, distant and elusive.
