Carl’s most liked review

Birdman

★★★★½

For a film that talks a lot about how the stage is superior to movies this makes good use of the particulars of film art. It wouldn't work without solid acting by a very nice cast but the story cannot be separated from the extremely showy camerawork and neurotic percussion…

Carl’s most liked list

Around the World Mayathon in March 2015

30 movies from 30 different countries in the month of May, as challenged by Lise.

I successfully completed the challenges in 2013 and 2014 and had the most fun doing it. I like to watch films from all over the world but these challenges open my mind to whole new levels.
