"a real gem, so uncommodified and sincere that you almost forget the absurd humour and surrealism that underpin it. Plot points are telegraphed but it doesn't matter: the film resets your expectations, and then neatly & sweetly confirms and surpasses them"
|44 T5||Blade Runner 2049 (2017) - Oct 20, 2017
"little more than a competently made sci fi / action movie in line with the trend of the last 10 years. the slowness is sometimes good atmosphere, but mostly just "deep" ponderousness - basically the reverse of the original "
|38 T4||20th Century Women (2016) - Oct 20, 2017
"nostalgia trip/trap for a certain generation of american Liberal. But hey, it's up to us to bring it all back: all we have to do is tax the rich and unplug the internet. Or give up and watch movies like this one."
|74 T8||Rashomon (1950) - Sep 29, 2017
"we should realise how radical unreliable narration (and generally everyone being corrupt) was in 1950. the end of innocence, depicted in a rudimentary way by today's standards, but with accents of startling beauty and drama"
|73 T8||Trees Lounge (1996) - Sep 29, 2017
"the dead-end, end-of-history 90s through the lens of proto-sopranos luminaries"
|79 T9||A Master Builder (2014) - Sep 11, 2017
"i need to read some Ibsen! ...judging by the wikipedia summary, I really like the spin Shawn&co gave the story. A non-stop rollercoaster of images and emotions, intimately captured by Demme."
|4 T1||The Kite Runner (2007) - Sep 11, 2017
"such an unlikeable main character... he's not just a bland asshole, he also stands for a crude worldview"
|48 T5||Graduation (2016) - Sep 05, 2017
"maybe the new (?) wave has been spoiling us, but i thought this one was a bit heavy-handed. Still very well-made and a worthwhile message."
|78 T9||The Ox-Bow Incident (1943) - Sep 05, 2017
"well-played anti-western, and a gut-punching indictment of ruling by referendum"
|43 T5||Cartel Land (2015) - Sep 05, 2017
"very cinematic doco, shows a lot of grit (starting with the closeups of the 2 protagonists) but the true darkness remains just off-screen."
