|66 T7||Shallow Yellow Sky (2013) - Apr 15, 2017
"The storyline is enough of a mystery to keep you thinking and regretting, time wraps and jumps mostly give you enough space to think and fear, but sometimes break the emotional link. However, the story leads to no point, and it's Alidoosti's extraordinary acting that gives life to the movie. The director tries to add a bit more feel by darkening the scenery and makeup, but it's just a failure, unlike the soundtracks. So, this movie is a depressing emotional play, and that makes it admirable. "
|71 T8||The Little Prince (2015) - Apr 16, 2017
"The director was very successful, in the beginning of the movie to create a powerful emotional link with the audience, which gives it a great space to recreate the main telling of Saint-Exupery. But over time, it fails to keep the connection and child-story cliches seem to overthrow the emotional touch of the movie. Visually, this movie is a bit behind its era. Its special effects are weak and graphical renderings are inaccurate. The stop-motion parts are also deprived from a perfect sculpting."
|74 T9||The Wedlock (2013) - Apr 15, 2017
""The Wedlock", shrewdly shows a confrontation between traditional patriarchal and modern feminist family types. The storyline itself is what makes the movie weak, but a conscious and smart usage of cliche elements and bold opposition of characters, gives it a very sharp edge. I can't call this movie 'artistic', but it is artistically well-formed, and actors do great. Another advantage is, that the writer has left almost no trace of judge, so that the view point can be counted as neutral."
|83 T10||Blue Is the Warmest Color (2013) - Apr 15, 2017
"This is an extremely dark movie when it comes to the air you can feel with the characters. Its darkness is (un)fortunately not artificial, but completely natural due to the view that Kechiche has chose and the French society, which is amplified by an artistic filming. The whole story is filled with a lack of commitment inside Adele, an inner silence, a sadness covered with satisfaction, and a horde of emotions you can barely understand. This movie is of course an artistic, emotional masterpiece."
