  • Satan's Brew 1976

    ★★★½ Watched 29 Jul, 2014

    Fucking Fassbinder. Everything he touches is overly intelligent. For those who have seen 'Chinese Roulette' and thought that was a hard film to watch this is even worse. Extremely difficult watching, totally masochistic. Yet there are layers to it I am way to naive to even understand. I love watching difficult films because their constructions are always interesting.

  • The Hunger 1983

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Jul, 2014

    I really, really liked this film. Extremely chic whilst also having a lot of substance. I love the structure of this film and it was very reminisce of European films. I wish Tony Scott made more films like this.

  • Snowballs 2011

    ★★½ Watched 08 Mar, 2013

    Creepy and abstract. This short film finishes before it even have a chance to begin. Maybe that was the point though to capture a mere flash-in-the-pan kind of spontaneity.

  • Hiroshima mon amour 1959

    ★★★★ Watched 08 Jun, 2014

    This film is essentially visual poetry. You can really see it link between the golden age of cinema and French new-wave. The is a lot of romanticisation in regards to the relationship and that's what I feel it borrows from the Golden era. However it's extremely intelligent and the dialogue for all intent and purposes is just pure poetry. Really beautifully written. Visually the film is amazing. The shots are beautiful. Fantastic film.
