    Nr.9: An art-house film!

    From the very first scene I was intrigued. It depicted determination, strength, but also greed. From then on I was hooked. Determination transcends into deceit, strength into power and greed remained on top. 
    Totally mesmerized by every single little detail and every masterly captured long shot, backed by a thrilling score. From the perfectly written script and realness of the time, to the outstanding acting of both Daniel Day Lewis and Paul…

    Nr.28: A film representing your favorite holiday!

    To think I was born the same year Kubrick released this masterpiece is pretty damn cool.

    It didn’t go anywhere I was expecting, which is for the better. I have only seen a couple of Kubrick’s movies as of now, but I have learned to release once expectations and just go with the flow. Because if there is one thing this movie does, that is creating a fluid flow that…

    First Cow

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    First Cow is a small scale western with a perspective on the simple life of a cook trying to make way by working for a fur trapper party as they make their way through the forrest of Oregon to the small fortress on the frontier. 

    From then on it rolls into a purely magical feeling watching the world unfold before your eyes as the slow moving camera captures every crevice of this woodland western. 

    From the modern beginning to the…

    Your Name.

    ★★★★½

    A glorious anime that made me feel a similar feeling as the one I had when I watched Chungkin Express. It’s THAT moment when you just know:

    “You rub elbows with a lot of people everyday. Some strangers might become your friends or even confidants.” 

    Here the premise is different. They don’t rub elbows, but switch bodies entirely and from that moment they are connected, friends and even confidants by the end. Their learning of each other, themselves and their…

    Luca

    ★★★★

    What 'Luca' brings to the table is a prospettive diverse for a simple story of coming of age, monster vs. man. We are so used to Americans, their culture, their language, their high schools etc. For once we get a Pixar-film that has a whole new outlook on everything.

    It is clever in portraying the classic image of us and them. Disney and Pixar films has portrayed this before, where we have the perspective from the outsider/monster in the likes…

    Oslo, August 31st

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    These types of dramas (philosophical, realistic, and society critiquing) are my absolute favourite films. Also why my disappointment at the end hit harder than others. A rewatch could change that opinion.

    It has a cool beginning, with a recap of old Oslo to set the mood. It felt very original and also made one interested. 

    This is very hardhitting movie with questions about life, how to live your life and how not to. It’s a coming of age film in…
