    More movies should shout their title into my face every chance it gets so I don't forget it.

    Soul

    What seems like a heartwarming tale about purpose in life only works if you assume a mechanical, very American view of the afterlife and metaphysics in general. The idea, that a soul has to put in work to be completed, has to graduate from some program and fit into the mould some bureaucrats decided on to earn the right to live, is deeply capitalist, ableist and authoritarian.

    Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe

    It's amazing how subtle Schrader managed to direct certain critical scenes. She always keeps the balance between the said and the unsaid and uses it to create an atmosphere of uncertainty and sadness.

    "Vor der Morgenröte" is a very good biopic which doesn't use a single ounce of pathos to portray it's subject.
