  • Paddleton

    Paddleton

    ★★★½

    the story seems a little bit off sometimes, but hey, it’s about dying and it’s sad, and it’s joyfull and unpretentious (at least mostly)

  • Daleko za sluncem

    Daleko za sluncem

    ★★★½

    gives you the perspective

  • Behind the Curve

    Behind the Curve

    ★★★½

    if your kid claims that the stuff they learn at school is pointless show them this documentary and tell them that school is to make sure people will not believe this kind of lunatic fantasies

    that said I’m sick of people who watched this only to make fun of and to mock people and I sincerely hate the fact that some of them have the nerve to make fun and mock after watching this documentary

    as it was said in…

  • Margarita with a Straw

    Margarita with a Straw

    ★★★½

    It was very easy to make this film look pretentious, sloppy and cheap.


    But it doesn’t and as I was surprised, I was also amazed how self-awere it is. Simple queer story with unconventional characters which as much ‘disabled’ they are definitely not dehumanized.



    There’s no pity, there’s no going easy on anybody. Characters are as they are and I love how it leads to the final message.

  • Can You Ever Forgive Me?

    Can You Ever Forgive Me?

    ★★★½

    the story is engaging, writing sounds decent, pacing as good as needed

    too bad there’s nothing I can like characters for... completely unlikeable lead role makes me not care about her

    mellisa mccarthy gives a solid piece of acting tho

  • Beautiful Boy

    Beautiful Boy

    ★★★½

    film’s simple structure overshadows extraordinary performances during the screening, it’s like the whole story is only an excuse for timmy and steve to show us how good at acting they are and it’s very hard to go out the cinema and throw those pictures and gestures out of your mind

    beautiful boy is the most perfect title for this film whoever could ever come up with: timmothée chalamet is beautiful in every scene he’s in
