    The Whore

    ½

    Norges første exploitation/rape-revenge. En halv stjerne for grindhouse-effektene med filmruller som brenner opp etc. og for et sjangertro, men ekstremt og villet dårlig forsøk.

  • The Lion Woman

    The Lion Woman

    ★★½

    Stiv og tradisjonell filmatisering av Erik Fosnes Hansens bestselger, og med et stjernelag av norske skuespillere som bare får småroller på bekostning av Rolf Lassgård, Connie Nilsen m.fl. Hovedpersonens vei mot en akademisk karriere er svakt og rykkvis fortalt.

    ★★★★

    Xavier Dolan goes Hollywood plot, somewhat. I think I've seen this unstable mother with violent son-story before, though Dolan does it more visually interesting than most filmmakers. A bit too long, the music scenes are a bit off and I miss the LGBT part appearent in his earlier films. Still wothwhile, though, strongly acted, nice visuals and a mysterious neighbor of few words balancing the excessive two main characters. Just don't head too far into the mainstream, Dolan, even with your next Jessica Chastain English-speaking feature.

    The Other Side of Hope

    ★★★½

    Gloriously deadpan and furiously angry, some closure of Kaurismäki's career if his predictions of this as his last film are true.
