    On the Milky Road

    ★★★½

    Give me the lesser Kusturica instead of 100 empty hollywood summer blockbusters and I'm happy.
    Several of his main key elements are present but, I don't know, something is missing. He was trying something different and I can appreciate that.
    This is not my favorite Kusturica, that's for sure, but there is always something captivating in each of his movies.
    Too bad he doesn't make movies more often, and instead spends time working on his pet project documentaries with subjects…

    That Darn Cat

    ★★★

    I don't understand all the hate towards this film. It was quite funny all along, specially the final sequence with the car chasing. This is not a masterpiece, that's for sure, but we can't complain of 85 minutes of pure entertainment.

    Jenifer

    ★★★★½

    Most of the reviews I read about this participation of the Master Argento in the series were not very favorable. I really do not know the reason for that. This is the best episode I've seen so far. Intense, disturbing (Jenifer is truly disturbing; excellent make-up fx), full of suspense (Argento is keen on creating this type of very heavy ambience), gory (too much gore for Argento, not that I'm complaining, but it's not his usual style). The icing on the cake is really the soundtrack by Claudio Simonetti (ex-Goblin), a frequent contributor to Argento's films. Fantastic entry in the "Masters Of Horror" series.
