    ★★★★★

    In a time when the most popular movies are action-filled adrenaline rushes, it’s especially refreshing to sit down and watch a thoughtful, contemplative film like Columbus. Even though Kogonada is a first-time director, he clearly knows how to use a camera.

    I appreciate that Goodbye, Lenin! looks at the fall of Communism from a different point of view; a family that had been living relatively comfortably, but was unsure how change would affect them.

    However, I wasn't totally on board with the premise. While a mother is in a coma from a heart attack, the Berlin Wall falls, and capitalism is ushered in. After she wakes up, her grown kids don't want to strain her heart, so they go through an elaborate exercise to make her believe things haven't changed.

    And it wasn't as funny as it wanted to be.
