|78 T6||Ashik Kerib (1988) - Mar 22, 2017
"Gets close to the beauty and aesthetics of Color of the Pomegranates, but the problem, again, is in understanding the narrative. This seems progress more clearly but doesn't have as much poetic effect as the film about Sayat Nova."
|84 T9||Silence (2016) - Mar 22, 2017
"Despite some mediocre acting and it's slow pace, Silence manages to delve into deep religious commentary without seeming preachy. Also, points for the cinematography and Issei Ogata, who played the inquisitor, Inoue, wonderfully."
|74 T3||The Dawn Patrol (1930) - Mar 16, 2017
"A look at war from an interesting perspective with decent psychological take on hierarchy and loss of personnel. I found the acting to be sub-par and the overall low quality of the production hindered the enjoyment."
|73 T3||Noita palaa elämään (1952) - Mar 15, 2017
"Typically poor Finnish acting and a lackluster story. However, I was positively surprised by the cinematography and the style in which the sorcerous elements of the film were conveyed."
|84 T9||Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) - Mar 15, 2017
"Beautifully shot with wonderful scenery throughout the film. I found the storytelling a bit hasty at times, and felt that a longer running-time would have improved it."
|73 T3||The Tears of an Onion (1938) - Mar 13, 2017|
|76 T5||Never Weaken (1921) - Mar 06, 2017
"The construction site sequence is worth the praise."
|78 T6||The Murderer Lives at Number 21 (1942) - Mar 06, 2017
"A comedy noir that that succeeds in combining the thrilling with the humorous. "
|74 T3||Big Trouble in Little China (1986) - Mar 06, 2017
"Action-packed and frivolous."
|84 T9||Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975) - Mar 02, 2017
"The monotonous, boring and insignificant daily life of Jeanne Dielman is summarized in three days during which she goes shopping, cooks food and is visited by her son as well as some middle-aged men who pay for her time. Her meaningless household routines, general mannerisms and joyless facial expressions mirror the empty and lonely reality of her existence. Minimalism in camera movement and the reduced visual profile summarize Jeanne's character, and provide the stylistic edge for the film."
