    This was probably my most anticipated film of the year (right after that follow Strickland’s In Fabric and McPhail’s Anna and the Apocalypse; I still have to see both) and I actually don’t know where to start here. The first thing I want to mention is that I was glad I saw it on the big screen (a 2 hour train ride aside) and in the original version!

    There is quite a lot to be discussed but I’ll keep it…

    ★★★★★

    This is one of the best films I’ve seen in my life. From the opening shot panning over the deserted Texan landscape accompanied by the guitar sounds from Ry Cooder’s ethereally beautiful soundtrack I knew this film would be something special. And it turned out I wouldn’t be wrong with my notion. This film is perfectly shot, perfectly paced, perfectly scored, perfectly written and the characters are perfectly portrayed by the cast. I regard Harry Dean Stanton as one of…

    ★★★½

    Very refreshing!

    I was surprised to see the tough subject matter of a young man unjustly detained in Guantanamo handled in a such comedic way and yet being able to adequatley convey the hardships and struggles that come with it. A very nice balance achieved mainly by the very charismatic and relatable characters of Rabiye, her sons, and Bernhard, her lawyer.

    Vague SPOILERS ahead (Locations in Gotham City and themes of the story are discussed)!! Read at your own risk!


    As I’m writing this review, I’m listening to the score of The Batman to get me back into the mood of this terrific three-hour piece of film. The score is a one of the key puzzle pieces to the impressive work done by everyone involved in the making of this film.

    I distinctly remember the opening shot: We as the audience…

    One of the best films about obsession I’ve seen. With a grainy, black and white picture which happens to be Aronofsky’s first feature he proves what he is capable of. He creates hauntingly disturbing imagery perfectly accompanied by Clint Mansell’s Matrix-reminiscent score (and this was released one year before The Matrix). Sean Gullette portrays a mathematician who gradually plunges into a world dominated by delusion, madness and obsession and he does this with such a confidence, a great performance by a very little known actor. One of Aronofsky’s finest films.
