    The Apartment


    Charming, fun and sharp. Even with a pretty simple execution on a surface-level it manages to convey so many moods and tones throughout, brilliant little nuances everywhere.

    A magical microcosm of all the silliness and desperation of falling in love.

  • The Gospel According to St. Matthew

    The Gospel According to St. Matthew


    Such an organic and beautiful masterpiece of a depiction.

    Pasolini approaches the biblical narrative not with all-too-common grandiosity, but with deep naturalism and utmost sincerity in those deep focus shots, all of which makes it even more moving and captivating.

    Couldn't think of a better artist to make this kind of portrayal of the gospel.

    We, as a human species, don't deserve these creations of Varda's talent. What an immaculate glow this film has. Even though it's full of misery, the gorgeous color palette makes it feel like a heavenly fairytale saturated in sunflowers, and I love that dissonance.

    This was so personally appealing, like a touchstone for the kind of film I'd aspire to make, totally fell in love with its mundane absurdity.

    Pleasant and grainy cinematography, peculiar hang-out scenes, and existential tones presented in a not-so-blatant way. That deadpan style of dialogue rivals something Kaurismäki would write.

    Terribly underseen, lovely film. Definitely recommended especially for people with this one in their Mubi line-up!
