    Southern hospitality gone wrong

    Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

    ★★★

    If the focus was more on those thousand planets and less on a predictable by-the-numbers plot with cardboard characters and clunky dialogue, this could have been a great sci-fi blockbuster instead of just an okay one.

    Shame

    ★★★★½

    "Shame" accomplishes what (fortunately, I guess) few movies can: it is highly compelling but also equally repellent at the same time. While on one hand it's an outstanding piece of cinematic craftsmanship (McQueen and Fassbender working together seems like a perfect match) and a definite "must see", on the other, I probably never want to see it again because it's pretty much not an enjoyable experience, at least in the conventional sense.

  • It Comes at Night

    It Comes at Night

    ★★★★½

    Not at all what I expected from the poster/trailer but pretty fucking great and intense nevertheless!
