    ***One of the best 150 films I have ever seen.***

    [Workprint Version]

    Arden, aged 45 by the time of the film's release, beyond being an actress, director and screenwriter, was also a feminist belonging to the anti-psychiatry movement of the 1960s, and this is recognized as her most furious denunciation. The main hypothesis pervading this psychologically and technically groundbreaking unprecedented masterwork is that Psychiatry is a subjective science which methodology depends on the applicant. She had knowledge of at least…

    I rarely use the description of someone else as a part of my review. In this case, however, it is mandatory, given the excellence of Thessaloniki's perspective:

    "A parable on space and time. A game of transformations. The course taken after a death, a second death. A woman gives birth and dies. At the moment of her death - a borderline moment, like the onset of sleep-her face scatters and…

    ★★★★

    Satirical, symbolic moral fable about self-acceptance derived from social acceptance depending on your marital status and how desperation due to loneliness can awaken animalistic instincts in a human bei... Do some people still refer to human beings as rational animals, or as the most intelligent animal species on the planet? My family and academic primary school education fed us to death with that philosophy. Be it as it may, Pantheistic reincarnation is the central thesis of the film, placing self-sacrifice…

    Kinetta

    ★★★½

    To introduce Yorgos Lanthimos, it is imperative to connect his social influence with Nikos Nikolaidis, the most unique, incomparable, politically controversial and transgresive film director in the very vast Greek cinema landscape. Lanthimos showed a politically neutral vision during his early years until the always-oh-so-seductive Hollywood territory allowed him to play with symbolic fables with an artistic liberty that the majority of directors didn't enjoy in the 20th Century; however, he's directly Nikolaidis' disciple and the one that continued the…

    Tetsuo: The Iron Man

    ★★★★★

    Imagine that Luis Buñuel and David Lynch had intense homosexual encounters in a cheap motel in Tokyo under the influence of hallucinogens. Imagine that, after that, both (yes, both) conceived a single son. Finally, imagine that the aforementioned son made a movie and that every single scene in that movie was directed by him when he had an orgasm smoking opium.

    That's Tetsuo, the true Iron Man, so the hell with the Marvel character. Tsukamoto takes us back to the…
