    Under the Silver Lake

    Een paar weken terug besloot de SLBer van onze klas dat het een prachtig plan was om een klassendate te plannen. Als klas besloten we dit in te vullen door samen een film te gaan kijken met veel eten erbij. 

    Afgelopen maandag was het moment daar. De situatie was uiterst gunstig gezien het feit dat de klassendate plaatsvond in de theaterzaal op school die geheel wit is geschilderd en zich daardoor ontzettend goed leent voor het projecteren van film op…

    Also, I need to visit Russia one day.

    Lanthimos did it again everyone. This is so funny.
    The acting is phenomenal and the images are very pretty.

    But still, I personally feel like costume drama's aren't as interesting as other movies. And that's my opinion, completely based on my personal preferences.

    So I have to admit that I do like Yorgos Lanthimos' other movies better. Those have this weird but interesting vibe over them that this one doesn't. But I must admit that I do really really like those movies, so those had set the bar high for this one.
