    Superficial and Alone


    Disillusionment is something that was ingrained into my youth. Being sixteen in 1998 was really a no future time that was a one way street for a lot of people in the middle class, just like myself. There wasn't anything greatly missing in my life, besides a goal, a girlfriend and some sense. Something to aspire, cherish and work towards for a happier, more fulfilled life.

    As it seems, I'm not the only one who struggled to…

    The comfort of strangers


    Is this maybe the most beaugly (beautiful-ugly) Movie ever shot on Film?
    I think it may be. Such a depressing little fisher town where the boat only hold to spread their diseases and sorrows, only to leave as quickly as possible from this industrial town where the smog is dense and the people lonely and glum.

And the typical "french" editing did stretch this movie, when it shouldn't and showed from the important parts much too less. Some cute choices were made though and more…

    What a Beast of a Movie!


    From perfect Camera, Sound and incredible Actors and all rapped up in the first Brainsplatter, as I like to call this Movie, I have ever seen.

    I was at the Fantasy Film Fest in 2004 at the screening of this enormous Masterpiece. It was a incredible Atmosphere!

    Till half hour before the ending you hear laugther, chuckles and gasping. But when the climax came, there was dead silence long after the credits were gone.…
