From 'Simon Killer' to this, I am speechless.
Everything here feels like a cynical joke, just imagine 'The Place Beyond The Pines' without Cianfrance's sensitivity nor any real purpose.
And I'm suddenly in love with architecture.
Columbus survived the hype and that's because Kogonada's debut is one of the most important in recent years. So, last year I was lucky enough to see that dreamy long take in 'Kaili Blues' and today I see how the beauty of each frame makes Columbus a piece of art.
Clearly there's something more, as Consequence of sound's review says ''Columbus is a film that understands the romantic appeal of the intellect'' but…
It feels like Sundance is becoming the house of great horror movies, 'The Eyes of My Mother' and 'The Witch' make a stunning combo, both wonderful debuts, both wonderful Films instead of some fucking useless jump scares.
Nicolas Pesce's direction is brilliant, he knows what he's doing and Kika Magalhaes as a woman consumed by loneliness is a great discovery.
