  • Winter Sleep 2014

    ★★★★ Added 2

    A Bergmanian superbly written and well acted tale of people who needs to move away from each other to a bigger place. It's about everything that is wrong with small places.

  • Ida 2013

    ★★★★½ Added

    A simplistic yet complex drama about faith and family, depression and loneliness and the horrors of the Holocaust seen from the perspective of the survivors. The film is shot with a static camera and often uses weird angles to underline the horrors the two main characters unfolds. Ida, both the actress playing the title character and the film is utterly gorgeous.

  • In a World... 2013

    ★★★½ Added

    Sweet and funny quirky comedy with a cool feminist perspective. Also Ken Marino is the best.

    ★★ Added

    As a TV scholar my patience with "moody", rainy, grey and slow paced crime thrillers set in a non descript place (well it rains a lot) has definitively come to an end. As a Scandinavian I just have to appoligize for the Nordic noir.

    Prisoners is one on a dusin crime thrillers with a lot of actors ACTING. Gylldenhal's many ticks and "I'm thinking look" gets super annoying after a while and Jackman has left all his usual charm behind…
