"Not quite the "poverty can look beautiful sometimes" that I was expecting, but instead a (often distant, too calculated) mixture of technical virtuosity, autobiography and slice-of-life social drama. "

"It loses some of its steam in the last 30, 40 minutes or so. But it deserves some credit for staging scenes in nearly the same location, with identical lighting from start to finish. Also, always good to watch medieval people headbanging and even rapping."

"Late capitalist low fantasy whose second half is way more solid than the first. A bleak young man witnesses workers being explored and not getting paid and finally joins a band of misfits in contemporary times, only to find violence in a bank -- lynched for carrying an alleged weapon. Dogs runs away. Lots of enigmatic images filtered by Rohrwacher's gentle but always unease vision."

"Sorority and solidarity in a local sports bar and grill that seems to be on his last days -- Mancave franchise is opening any day now. Lisa, the manager, wants every girl to be respected. She's the least selfish girl on earth. A family tied together not by business, but by friendship, some crazy stuff -- doing a pre-show while the TVs are off --, making a scream party in the end, helping who needs help, being cheerful to those who are down, a fundraiser. Affection can survive capitalism."

"Zoe Kazan and Tom Waits segments are great. The rest is way less engaging. Carter Burwell’s score is one of 2018’s best."
|80 83%||Did You Wonder Who Fired the Gun? (2018) - Dec 06, 2018
"The kind of deep, though-provoking, self-reflexive examination I would like to do with my family sins. Precious documentary about the impossibility of solving a crime with almost no records -- all he's got is his words, some letters, abandoned places, a couple of family movies, photographs and a long road."
|65 61%||Les garçons sauvages (2017) - Dec 06, 2018
"More beautiful than engaging. Cum, piss, blood, black and white and neon colors to tell a surreal, crazy coming of age story about boys sent to the sea to have their lives reformed -- instead, they crash on an island that turns them into women."
|55 43%||Zama (2017) - Dec 03, 2018
"Formally always interesting, but fact is that the last 30 minutes are way better than the rest of the film -- when the film finally assumes its colonialistic kind of horror tale, with men getting crazy in the woods (Matheus is awesome), cutting Zama's hand and legs and leaving him in an Indian boat."
