"Likeable from moment to moment on an acting and cinematography basis (down-south mud-and-sunshine tones), but the thoughts on dirt and death, family and status are never finalized. The narrative settles on a very simple melodramatic episode that washes away the time spent. An epic it ain't."
|67 T7||The Ritual (2017) - Feb 14, 2018
"Even if the Nordic mythology and the guilt flashbacks connect visually quite impressively, they never cohere as text. Any meaning dissipates in the end, but the tense, nightmarish, naturalistic direction announces Bruckner as a major talent."
|62 T6||Sophie and the Rising Sun (2017) - Feb 13, 2018|
|59 T6||A Place for Lovers (1968) - Feb 13, 2018|

|92 T10||Phantom Thread (2017) - Feb 01, 2018
"Woodcock, who has always maintained a distance towards his muses, is finally cursed and broken by love. He wants everything of Alma and she in turn of him. It is said that the secret to being a fully formed man is to simultaneously be a child and a father figure. Alma gets him there. She fills his lust for life and beauty in ways we could never fathom. And what a perverse romance this is! What a fulfilling meal! Anderson reaches the peak of his avant-garde classicism."
|57 T5||The Odyssey (2016) - Jan 28, 2018
"Looks great, but are the French gonna pretend that there’s never been a Steve Zissou?"
