    In my opinion, one of the finest pieces of big scale cinema ever made.

    "Elvis" is an absolute banger of a movie with so much musicality and energy that often just takes your breath away. I can understand that it can all feel a bit much to some, but for me, who loves when the language of cinema is expressionistic, unapologetic and pompous, it is all wildly entertaining and fascinating to sit through.

    Two things I really adore about the movie:

    First of all, we are not treated to the same old and tired…

  • Eat Pray Love

    Eat Pray Love

    Too much eating and not enough love(-making).

  • The Sadness

    The Sadness

    As nasty as the rumor has it to be, this bonkers and exceptionally disgusting film somehow manages to push so many limits without actually feeling explotative or controversial. It’s fun and energetic and provocative in the excact right amount. Some lackluster editing and a very thin plot leads to occasional pacing issues, which detracts from the otherwise surprisingly skilled moviemaking. And I say “surprisingly”, because it’s rare to see a movie so gratuitously featuring rape, genital mutilation and aggressive vomiting being made with such skill and competence!

    But make no mistake: this is only for the genre fans!

  • The Mask of Zorro

    It’s fine, it’s fun and they actually don’t make them like this anymore!

  • Nocturnal Animals

    Nocturnal Animals

    It just popped on in TV and completely took me by surprised. From the Lynchian opening sequence to the intricate storytelling and dark, twisted themes I was captivated and enthralled all the way!

  • Top Gun: Maverick

    Top Gun: Maverick

    Riveting, engaging and kind of perfectly executed.. Impressive!

  • Melancholia

    Melancholia

    In no way Triers best work, but it sure contains some of his most beautiful and stunning pieces, and that’s really saying something.

  • Thor: Love and Thunder

    Thor: Love and Thunder

    Christian Bale rules, and he gets credit for one entire star all by himself. But I hated that the movie mostly is just an outright comedy that more often than not just feels like a sequence of (unfunny) SNL sketches, and that it doesn’t make any effort for us to take it seriously.

    Comic book movies can (and mostly should) be both silly and engaging at the same time, but when our main protagonists are always just pathetic jokes, it is very hard to feel any sense of passion, emotion or stake at anything that happens. At times, the movie feels outright insulting.

  • The Black Phone

    The Black Phone

    Competently directed, but ultimately a childrens horror movie that isn’t really scary, and doesn’t have anything to it’s story other than what is in the pitch and trailer.

    And I also don’t like the way Scott Derrickson seem to always embrace egocentric, violent and self-righteous characters. The very final scene is actually disgusting in that sense..

  • Elvis

    Movie of the year? I was enthralled and entertained from beginning to end, with Baz Luhrmann throwing everything on screen in a masterfully directed and eclectic tour de force of a music movie. I can’t remember the last time I had so many instances in a cinema where I just wanted to clap and yell out loud from pure excitement.

    Loved it!

    The Worst Person in the World

    Love to see a movie that embraces the choice NOT to force yourself into the typical grow up —> get married —> have children cycle of life, while not even in the slightest criticing those that do.

    This is a nordic Frances Ha and it is wonderful ❤️
