    Once Upon a Time in America

    ★★½

    What a mysogynist movie. Every women in this film is either insignificant extras or sexual objects - not human beings. Except only Deborah - but Noodles also treats her as sexual object. And yeah, according to this, women either like to be raped, or just do not care much about that. Disgusting.

    The Wind That Shakes the Barley

    ★★★★

    Damien: Your presence here is a crime, a foreign occupation. Tell me what I'm supposed to do. Turn the other cheek for another 700 years?
    Interrogator: That is not my responsibility.
    Damien: Get out of my country.
    Interrogator: What is your name?
    Damien: Get out of my country.

    Oh, how those Irish Independence fights are similar to Lithuanian resistance after II World War! But maybe everywhere on earth the taste and desire for freedom is the same and it's stronger than fear of death.

    ★★★½

    More experience than film, which is meant to be not to understand, but to felt.

  • A Hidden Life

    A Hidden Life

    ★★★½

    Almost three hours of pure aesthetics. Beautiful camera movements. But why oh why in the little Austrian village they speak English?
