||Louder Than Bombs (2015) - Oct 21, 2016
"I'm honestly not sure whether this is really a steep decline from Trier's previous work, or I've just completely outgrown this type of overly earnest, affectedly adolescent navel-gazing nonsense. Probably a little of both. I guess it probably doesn't help that he's working in English for the first time either. Eisenberg and Huppert are fine of course, although underutilized. It's not a particularly bad film by any means, but hardly as "meaningful" as Trier seems to think it is."
||Molière (1978) - Oct 18, 2016
"Comparable to Rossellini's history films (not only because Descartes and Louis XIV both makes appearances here), although a bit livelier and less dryly didactic. It moves fairly quickly for a film that's four hours long, although I'd be lying if I didn't admit that it started to feel it's length going into the third hour. If I didn't know, I would have never guessed that this inspired Hal Hartley when he wrote The Unbelievable Truth, there's really no similarity to Hartley's style unfortunately."
||Sleepwalk (1986) - Oct 09, 2016
"Probably the best movie i've seen all year. Jarmusch ain't got nothing on this."
