    Grand Hotel 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 23 Sep, 2016

    Ikke så morsom som den selv legger opp til, men velspilt og velregissert. Katastrofal publikumsmessig (en forfatter med skrivesperre i Oslo er omtrent så langt unna relatertbar tematikk landet rundt man kommer).

    ★★★ Watched 16 Sep, 2016

    God hovedrolle av Dugnall og birolle av Goody, men det mangler for mye historiemessig.

    Kill Bill: Vol. 1 2003

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 12 Dec, 2014

    "It's mercy, compassion and forgiveness I lack. Not rationality." It's been a good 10 years since the release (or 11 years and two months, to be exact), and Pulp Fiction recently turned 20. This first installment of the Kill Bill series is still standing tall and just might be Tarantino's best from the last decade (if viewed as a stand alone film, which I think in retrospect it should be).

    Mommy 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Dec, 2014

    Xavier Dolan goes Hollywood plot, somewhat. I think I've seen this unstable mother with violent son-story before, though Dolan does it more visually interesting than most filmmakers. A bit too long, the music scenes are a bit off and I miss the LGBT part appearent in his earlier films. Still wothwhile, though, strongly acted, nice visuals and a mysterious neighbor of few words balancing the excessive two main characters. Just don't head too far into the mainstream, Dolan, even with your next Jessica Chastain English-speaking feature.
