    It's all like a never-ending dream. A haze. Yet it somehow feels crystal clear. It asserts repetition with an unshaken conviction, as if to demonstrate that existence is a trap, that the present is something to escape, to run away from. Places are revisited, constructions rebuilt, people re-encountered, actions retaken, words reiterated, shots repeated. It's a constant return - to a place, a time, a state of mind; it's a search, a reenactment, a shifting landscape of details, memories, emotions,…

    Winter Sleep


    Aydin is a deeply flawed human being. He is condescending, manipulative, phony, he thinks of himself as profound when in fact he is shallow. He mistakes his selfishness for altruism, he expects nothing in return but ardently seeks personal gain or comfort. He finds his encounters with the tenants embarrassing, he avoids them like the plague, yet he doesn't miss a chance to mockingly assert his superiority. He wants to appear modest yet he will accept any words of praise…

    Part of Hooptober X

    This is an intriguing low-budget sci-fi horror movie from Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, the creative duo that does it all, from writing, producing, shooting, directing, acting, editing and who knows what else. It's about brothers Justin and Aaron (guess which one is which) who are sick of their shitty jobs, friendless lives and apparently each other, deciding to go visit a cult they were once part of in their youth. From there, things get progressively…

    Billy the Kid Versus Dracula


    Part of Hooptober X

    John Carradine's eye acting in this movie is in a league of its own. Whenever his Dracula takes a look at that photo of Betty his eyes get so big it's like he's trying to hypnotize her through the photo or make her materialize in front of him. So ridiculous. I'm probably not the first to make this observation but Carradine looks (and sounds) a lot like Stephen McHattie. So this is a western horror, always…

    "Sometimes, to create one must first destroy."

    Why do we watch movies? Some would say it's just a way to pass the time. Others would say they watch movies for their entertainment values, the spectacle and escapism they provide. Others would say a good story is the reason. Others would say it's because of the artistry and craftsmanship that goes into putting together a movie, the process through which a movie is created, the work and effort required to bring…
