  • Benedetta

    ★★★★

    Your reviews was true, This was not boring at all which is a rarity in the cinema of last couple of years

  • The Batman

    The Batman

    ★★★★

    Robert Pattinson introduces a new Batman, the most vulnerable Batman because he carries around all this personal baggage of being "the son of his father" and just looks very sensitive, but at the same the time the strongest Batman because when it comes to his work he is dedicated as fuck and doesn't get any emotion be involved. He is ruthless and really presents a scary presence. It is not Pattinson alone that creates this, it's thanks to a great script/directing that gives him the ability to truly shine. Gorgeous cinematography helps all this makes a great watch.

  • The Fan

    The Fan

    Simone is not just a teenager who is in love with a pop artist named R, she looks different and talks differently, Simone simply stands out. From the first time you lay eyes on her you know she's trouble. She might be violent at times but that's not the main concern, she has her own special "calm" way about whatever she does, even in aggression, which feels very nihilistic like she really doesn't give a fuck. So, rather than aggressive…

  • Fish & Cat

    Fish & Cat

    ★★★★

    I've heard Mokri’s name over and over again in the last decade but since I'm not so optimistic about Iranian directors, I postponed watching him for a long time. The movie is shot by one camera and suffers from bad quality but that's how it is in Iran, if you're not licking big boys boots chances are you have very limited budget, can't get your hand on expensive actors neither. All that aside, cause after all we care about results…

  • Greatful Dead

    Greatful Dead

    ★★★★

    Another tremendous Japanese picture that certainly leaves it's marks in postmodern cinema. What the director experiments in regards to music and form is as creative as you want. Classical music playing in the most unsuitable scenes that makes it all even more peculiar. This was a funny exciting ride, don't let the first 30 minutes disappoint you cause it's kinda slow.

  • Zola

    Zola

    I can't say it had a surprising script, it didn't, the whole story is simple and mundane; how come I don't care about that? because this movie looks absolutely gorgeous. It's one of the sexiest movies I've ever seen, the colors and the lighting is superb; and yeah it had sexy people in it, especially Zola herself. Hot Damn! The 86 minutes runtime actually feels even shorter, this film flies to a finish swiftly and masterfully that you don't even have time to even ask about how and why, you just join this group of people in what's happening. what a breath of fresh air.

  • Bacurau

    Bacurau

    ★★★★

    “We’ve used psychotropic drugs, you're gonna die.”
    The most special thing about this bad-ass little flick is that it has a peculiar way of getting more and more violent; the plot starts slow and steps into madness cautiously, but when it starts to go apeshit, it's absolutely real and brutal

  • Hardcore

    Hardcore

    ★★★★

    As the movie was ending I asked myself why do I like this movie so much? Shouldn't it be rather boring by my standards? But I realized I mainly liked it because of a the acting and above that casting, everyone, even ones with small roles, look perfect for the part; the result is you get involved with the movie, and I couldn't pause it for a second which means I was sold.

  • La Ciénaga

    La Ciénaga

    ★★★★

    I suppose this is how Nuestro Tiempo and Y Tu Mama Tambien start out, Just like La Cienaga these movie start with an expressionistic take on the spirit of life in Latina in a particular summary swampy setting, the savage boundless exploration of nature, children playing in the dirt, testing each other's limits in games, fights, and romance. Parents that almost don't care about the kids but they do if their own vices leave room, kids with scratches and serious injuries but…

  • The Soft Skin

    The Soft Skin

    ★★★★

    Most of French new wave cinema is about relationships, but it's not the same romance you see in different cinemas of other countries in other periods. Relationships are used as a tool to reflect the state of society, how void of humanity and moral principals people have become. The ultimate realization that there is actually no sanctity to human life, there’s the iron that cuts through the meat and that's that, c’est fini. After the catastrophic World War II, people…

  • Mind Game

    Mind Game

    ★★★★

    Every frame of Mind Game is loaded with so much detail and attention, that you have no choice but to respect the tremendous work and creativity that was put into it. The story starts in real and plausible surroundings, but as time passes some elements of fantasy are introduced into the story, the characters that seem so bizzare that you're not sure what to make of them or whether they’re real or not. Eventually, you will journey to the realm…

  • Orgazmo

    Orgazmo

    ★★★★

    Love it or hate it? I think that's how this is for people. The kind of silly carefree and almost careless comedy that sometimes borderlines fantasy is not everyone’s cup of tea. The story would be different if this was an episode of South Park but these are real people, so the amount of silliness might be undesirable for some. But I absolutely loved every second of it. It provides fine escape as not a lot of it makes much sense, and this my dudes is going up in my stoner list since it's so unconventional and fast-paced.
