"The main story arc seems at once conventional and not very well constructed, but the same cannot be said about the atmosphere. Petzold, like in his other movies, is pitch-perfect in creating a mood that holds the movie together even where the story fails to do so."
|75 75%||Laurence Anyways (2012) - Jun 30, 2019
"Quite uneven, it gets long in many parts, but is brilliant in others (those generally being the ones where he just turns up the music)."
|80 86%||Kikujiro (1999) - Jun 21, 2019
"Just like Hisaishi's score, this one feels shallow and frivolous in the beginning, but the more you get exposed to it, the more it grows on you, until in the end it unfurls unexpected poignancy. Must have been great fun to make!"
|60 37%||Nancy (2018) - May 16, 2019
"Some nice elements in here (including the main premise), but then a lot of generic, desaturated soul-searching. Some weird choices about lighting and music too. "
|70 61%||Paradise: Faith (2012) - May 08, 2019
"While it has ample similarities with other Seidl movies, this one resonated a bit less with me. I particularly fault the crucifix masturbation scene - whereas in the other movies the characters seemed to be very ordinary and portray parts that all of us contain, this one just was a bit too much over the top to make the same point."
|45 18%||The Hateful Eight (2015) - Apr 25, 2019
"Didn't realize Tarantino movies could be boring."
|30 7%||The Neon Demon (2016) - Apr 24, 2019
"Seriously, this is from the guy who made Drive? It feels as if it had been written by the very people it portrays. It's not often I abort a movie, but no way I'm sitting through more of these terrible dialogues."
|65 48%||Amina (2019) - Apr 16, 2019
"An interesting look into Amina's life, but ultimately not quite enough of a story there."
|85 93%||Dear Son (2018) - Apr 16, 2019
"Surprisingly mature filmmaking. The script is flawless, editing does not treat you like a child, and the acting is world-class. Very pleasant discovery!"
|55 29%||Chuva É Cantoria Na Aldeia Dos Mortos (2018) - Apr 15, 2019
"I keep proclaiming that we are living in a golden age, as cheap equipment makes it possible to film remote cultures that still have not been soaked up by the mainstream. This film does portray a very interesting example of such a culture, yet unfortunately doesn't do enough to have it become an interesting film in its own right."
