    Oslo, August 31st

    ★★★★★

    An addict is on his last days of rehab, and has been sober for a long while. The treatment has not changed his life one bit, which is the premise of this movie. A film about hopelessness, inevitability and false happiness. A film about individuality as well as society. A film that depicts that the hole that we fall into sometimes is too high to climb out of. A film about lost feelings, sustained by drugs. The best Norwegian film to date.

    A Streetcar Named Desire

    ★★★★

    The outbreak of modern acting. Stretching from the melancholian performances directly from the Broadway stage, to the bad boy, cold-shouldered appearance and attitude of Marlon Brando. The movie was rewarded with 4 Oscars, 3 of them for Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor. Marlon Brando was only nominated for maybe history's most important role. A movie balancing on the edge of a knife that cuts film noir right open. Entertaining, awe-inspiring and important.
