    Wild at Heart

    ★★★★★

    I haven't had this refreshing film after a film since I rewatched Inherent Vice last year when news where showing nothing but shit. It's like feeling cold or otherwise dirty and going to warm sauna after a hard day and then coming out, taking something to drink and feel like world makes sense even if it is only for few seconds until it starts to wear off. This is for me the only way to describe Wild at Heart -…

    ★★★★★

    It's just so absurd feeling to listen all day long the terrifying news from ignorance towards creeping climate change that decides the fate of humanity and wonder about one's mortality and then stumble upon a film that's been on your watch list for years and simply stare at it in awe. Nomad is a revelation, absurd and hard to put into words, but so goddamn beautiful. At points it is pure cinematic bliss and aesthetic pleasure, at points a single…

    The Terrorizers

    ★★★★★

    Sorrowful and ground shaking depiction of dependence and loneliness; it almost feels as if each of the characters were each others' tormentors consciously and unconsciously. And so through this spiritual network we get the bigger picture, image of a city and history of its silent corners. Center doesn't seem to interest Yang as much as everything else. I find that there's so much in Yang's work that either one writes carefully and in-depth or lingers on certain impressions. For me…

    Caravaggio

    ★★★★

    This was my first Derek Jarman actually and it seems that it was long time overdue. I just love the physicality of this piece - Caravaggio by the bed, Swinton and Bean's scene on the hammock, the way the wounds tell their own story about the relationships and the reality of now, even the revealing of power structures when people kiss hands. Also it seems that Straub & Huillet and Pietro Marcello have made me sucker for anachronistic approach to historical…

    A Moment of Innocence

    ★★★★★

    After watching this film, I realized I'm never going to be film critic or scholar. This beautiful feeling that I'm feeling cannot be put to words. I've realized that the greatest films are something about what you can write and write, try to open them and their beauty, try to ease your burden and wonderment but you simply can't put them to words. I've loved film theory but after a film like this, I can't help but to pretty much…

  • The Neon Demon

    The Neon Demon

    ★★★★½

    Here's a film that has an ability to crush like Salo or 120 Days of Sodom or something Haneke would do or even the darkest works of Fassbinder. But when I compare to those greats, I cannot compare it to them on any other level (perhaps I could but I'm not going to force it) except that they all crush you, shape your views on the world, make you hate the world, make you even hate the film you are…
