    Young Ahmed


    At this point, it's probably futile to expect some sort of change in direction from the Dardenne brothers. Which means that "Le jeune Ahmed" is not uninteresting, but also just another undistinguished entry into their filmography.

    Marriage Story


    It's probably hard work to balance heartbreaking drama and humurous casualness the way Noah Baumbach manages to in this movie. The kid was rather annoying though.

    Hell or High Water


    With all the discussions about westerns updated for the modern age, here's an example of how it should be done: archetypical characters move in a story that is born out of the circumstances and political situation of today. Stringent, gripping and surprisingly funny. (8/10)

  • The Brood

    The Brood


    Quite a hunting drama about domestic violence, in which Cronenberg already grapples with one of his recurring themes, the physiological manifestation of psychological problems. Great performances across the board.
