"As with Der traumhafte Weg, Schanelec's storytelling stands out as very much her own. It still isn't my favorite, but it works and it does leave an impression."
|80 87%||La Dolce vita (1960) - May 09, 2021
"While the runtime could have been a bit shorter for my taste, it does make up for it with a lot of great scenes - the miracle one stands out in particular."
|80 87%||No Country for Old Men (2007) - Apr 23, 2021
"Could have done with a little less dialogue for Tommy Lee Jones, but otherwise an immensely fun movie. Cast and locations are right on the money (Javier Bardem's transformation obviously standing out), cinematography is great and plenty of fun characters. Wish there had been a bit more of Carson Wells!"

"Couple of good elements, also plenty of less good ones. Does a decent job of developing things at essentially a single location, but doesn't really tie things up in the end, so that it feels like too short a feature or too long a short film."
|40 11%||Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) - Apr 21, 2021
"Some of the shittiest filmmaking I've seen. Would be entirely unwatchable if there wasn't a Queen song every two minutes - which, as you may expect, makes it quite watchable."
|65 48%||Tabutta rövasata (1996) - Apr 18, 2021
"The filmmaking is rather terrible, but the scenes with peacocks in them alone are worth the price of admission."
|60 36%||The Thin Red Line (1998) - Apr 16, 2021
"As if Band of Brothers and Tree of Life had gotten messed up on the cutting room floor and reassembled at random. Seriously, for all the reviews proudly stating that this isn't a typical war movie, it sure employs a lot of typical war movie tropes. (And it ALSO does all the stuff that makes Malick movies so annoying.)"
|65 48%||Beginners (2011) - Apr 15, 2021
"Appreciate the attempts at going beyond a mainstream rom-com - alas, they are not always successful."

""You spend all day lounging in a bed of noble thoughts, and that's how you carry out your duty. You've lost touch with reality.", one of the characters says, and I am inclined to say the same thing to Tarkovsky. I have little use for such all-head-no-heart-films. A few notable exceptions in the last hour aside, there also wasn't much that called for this to be a movie, rather than the book it once was or a theater play."
|80 87%||Hayat var (2008) - Apr 08, 2021
"Best use of Istanbul in a movie, in a story that essentially is a fuck you to the city and the country. Beautifully filmed - and one of the very few films where I notice the sound (in a positive way)."
