50 41% Diego Maradona (2019) - Nov 05, 2019
"More or less standard sports documentary about a player who was anything but standard."
50 41% Marathon Man (1976) - Oct 28, 2019
"Passable thriller, nothing more."
50 41% Hans-Jürgen Syberberg - Der Unberechenbare (2010) - Oct 19, 2019
"Doesn't penetrate too deeply, avoids topics that are too difficult, but still worth seeing for some of the footage and for Syberberg's presence."
60 60% The Laundromat (2019) - Oct 19, 2019
"Breezy illumination of the shell game of the rich and powerful exposed in the Panama Papers. Cinematic attempts to portray the diffuse nature of global power and networks tend to be overpraised when they have a deadly serious tone (e.g., SYRIANA): Soderbergh has learned since TRAFFIC and CONTAGION that an ironic approach is preferable, but is then criticised for lacking a "coherent narrative" (Lowry, CNN): so what? End reveal is a little weak, perhaps, but the use of the manifesto packs a punch."
50 41% Un jour Pina m'a demandé (1983) - Oct 14, 2019
"A mixed bag."
75 83% The Forest of Love (2019) - Oct 13, 2019
"Both Sion Sono and Futoshi Matsunaga were born in 1961, and this fictionalised retelling of the latter's story somehow draws them together through the thought that cinema is life and life is cinema, or in other words a place in which dreams and nightmares can be made real. Such is the power of dreams, which, unbound from any constraint, can reach unimaginable depths of inhumanity, the events depicted on screen here being no more brutal or deranged than the crimes on which they are loosely based."
60 60% The Castle Within the Castle (1955) - Oct 10, 2019
"Similar to Dreyer's short about the Danish village church, using models and drawings to show architectural and historical elements in quite a cinematic way. The earlier documentary on churches was probably more historically interesting, but this benefits from some very well-composed imagery."
45 33% Storstrømsbroen (1950) - Oct 10, 2019
"Pretty shots of a bridge from every conceivable angle and in relation to all kinds of human activity and transport. That's it."
50 41% Thorvaldsen (1949) - Oct 08, 2019
"Adequate primer about the great Danish sculptor."
55 51% They Caught the Ferry (1948) - Oct 08, 2019
"Dreyer should have made more action films."
