  • Labor Day 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 24 May, 2014

    It's not supposed to be a thriller. But its suspense creeping up on the viewer is undeniable. Scratch the creeping up part. It rather felt like it jumped on me suddenly but was there from the start simultaneously. To cut a long story short: It's intense.

    ★★★★★ Watched 31 Mar, 2014

    Studying in the field of media, this film already touched a lot of topics that are not only on my mind.

    This movie - with its non-stopping series of gushing over clothes and gossiping over celebrities and name-dropping of brands and constantly putting oneself in the limelight of parties (and facebook) - feels as shallow as its characters. In this case, that is actually not necessarily a bad thing, because that's what it's all about. Still, it is strange to feel that way about a movie and about its reception. It makes the movie and its intention harder to grasp, even though it should be (and is) obvious in this one.
    Let's put it on every school's curriculum.

  • The Great Gatsby 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 26 May, 2013

    Baz Luhrmann continues to successfully merge together seemingly clashing things and turn them into tales with the most delicious visuals (and tunes). A true magician.
