    Dekalog

    How do you describe the indescribable? what do you even label it to begin with? A film? A TV series? A piece of art? or is it Art itself?
    Stanley Kubrick called it the only masterpiece he could name in his lifetime and you think of the ground that covers.

    Dekalog is often said to be about the ten commandments but I think it's a lazy way to put it.
    It's a religious experience of it's own.
    It takes on…

    A masterful cinematic achievement, lead by one of the greatest acting performances I've ever seen.

    Manchester by the Sea doesn't feel like a movie with actors, you don't get the feeling anybody's trying to act, or to bring awards attention, not even in the most emotional sequences of the film. everyone is just being. you get the feeling what you see is what it is.
    It's so authentic. so human. It feels like a slice of life so realistic to…

    absolutely gorgeous with almost every frame feeling like a painting.

    couldn't help but feel it was undercooked from linda's side especially as i *loved* her narration which carries a unique breeze of sincerity and innocence.

    β€œWasn't no harm in him. You'd give him a flower, he'd keep it forever.”

    goddamn.

    I also feel it was a little rushed in ending the tension with sam shepard, but ultimately the relationship between bill and abby is so heartfelt and well done and it is what makes the film so fucking good.

    asghar farhadi always makes me think i know where this is going (usually a direction that i feel is gonna make me think less of the film) and then he humbles me by reminding me that he's asghar farhadi, and im the dumbass with the illegal torrents

    I'd been delaying this for so long because it's always been so polarizing (which i totally see), and seemed to draw a lot of comparison to Kubrick's space odyssey which i really disliked (slash didn't get). but in some ways this is closer to Dekalog than it is to 2001 for me.

    a religious experience. almost like watching life from the afterlife. gives you that 'how the fuck did a human being make this?' feeling.

    one of the greatest cinematic achievement ever.

    I can't believe how quickly this shifted from an incredible 30 minute sequence that is so real and suffocating it genuinely triggered a personal trauma, to full-blown Lifetime movie.

    It felt like a genuine betrayal to me as a viewer, to the characters of the movie itself, and to the phenomenal performance Jodie Comer was putting. and it unfortunately overshadows all.

    positive rating for the great work before it all went to shit i guess
