    Woman in the Dunes


    The cinematography in Woman in the Dunes will hypnotize you. That's for sure!

    It captures the arid and claustrophobic atmosphere perfectly and the absence of color made the scenery look even dryer and hostile than it already was. 
    Yet, it's still quite beautiful. In fact, one of the most beautiful black & white cinematography I've seen. The astonishing close ups and long takes captured the beauty in all this dead and dusty nothingness. 
    It seems like that the sand flows like…

  • The Shining

    The Shining


    The Shining is an absolute masterpiece. 

    From the phenomenal score, over the mesmerising camera work to Nicholson’s overacting. 
    Stanley Kubrick manages to create such an eerie and unsettling atmosphere. No other (horror) movie ever achieved such a strong feeling of tautness. 
    Even though the legendary actor Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall are starring in one of the greatest achievements in cinema history, the main lead plays the hotel. Those long never ending corridors, the deserted halls, the intimidating majesty of…

    „You are a vicious snowflake.“

    Mandy is psychedelic insanity at its finest. 
    Beautiful cinematography, top notch crazy Nic Cage and probably the best: 
    Jóhann Jóhannsson! His score elevated this to the next level. He truly was a genius. He left us on a high note.

    Hannah Gadsby: Nanette

    Incredibly brave, powerful and affecting.. 
    I‘m not a big fan of the first comedy half, but the second more serious half compensated for it. Hearing her talking about the experiences she made and fears she has was devastating. You can clearly see how much this weight on her soul. 
    This is NOT your typical stand-up. She‘s trying to raise awareness for the treatment of the lgbtq+ crowd in our society and uses her life and what she went through as an example. And by doing so she does a wonderful job with this special. 
    Bravo Miss Gadsby 👏🏾

    The Hunt


    I can't breathe. This is some heavy shit! Guilt, innocence, friendship and trust are some themes which are being discussed here. This is the first and probably last time I'll see this film. 

    I don't think we have to talk about the performances, cinematography or writing of The Hunt. 'Cause it's fucking PERFECT ! FLAWLESS ! *insert random superlative here* 
    What really bothers me is the question: How would I have reacted? For the viewers it's quite simple. You saw…

  • Blade Runner

    Blade Runner


    I'm sorry that I misjudged you the last few times Blade Runner. On my fourth watch I finally realised what a masterpiece you are. 
    An afterwards often copied, profound look on what it means to be human. A soundtrack out of this world. And the perfect and best definition of cyberpunk, even by today's standards. 
    I'm looking forward to visit that dirty, neon drenched hell hole of a city again next month. 
    See you in 2049.
