    The Allins

    ★★★½

    A documentary made with respect, showing more sides of the story than just GG's chaos.

    And if you didn't know already:
    "Always Was, Is and Always Shall Be" will always be one of the best punk rock albums ever.

    Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich

    ★★★½

    Business as usual for the scum of the earth. No justice, no peace.

  • Kill List

    Kill List

    ★★★★½

    Still one of the best thriller/horror movies out there. Will watch again soon with the commentary tracks.

  • Sexy Beast

    ★★★★

    Psycho gangstas. I wish nowadays Tarantino and Guy Richie movies were like this, because this has so much more quality to it.

  • Terrified

    Terrified

    ★★½

    Starts out very interesting, and it surely has its moments, but some of the actors are not really up to par.

  • Somers Town

    ★★★

    Not as good as "This is England", but a charming nice watch. A bit too much feelgood for my taste, though...

  • Me and You and Everyone We Know

    Me and You and Everyone We Know

    ★★★½

    This film is so damn indie, it’s almost annoying.
    But I liked it.

  • A White, White Day

    A White, White Day

    ★★★★½

    Poetry in motion. Natural film making, depicting things the way they really are. It’s hypnotizing to watch a man lose control in such a slow and brooding way.

    This film has scenes that might not add much to the story, but they add tons of style, and that’s what makes Hlynur Pálmason's stuff so interesting to me.

    ”Seven Boats” was a nice idea for a short. ”Winter Brothers” had me hooked with its amazing actors, camera work, odd soundtrack and…

  • The Outsider

    The Outsider

    ★★★½

    I wonder how this film is perceived if you run into it totally blank. I almost wish I didn’t know the story beforehand, but for me ”The Outsider” is one of many favourite texts by H.P. Lovecraft.

    I was a bit sceptical about placing Lovecraft in the modern world, both in style (it looks too good) and in context, but somehow it works. The film makers have captured the heart and soul of the story. Details, like how The Outsider…

  • Winter Brothers

    Winter Brothers

    ★★★½

    A dirty social realism indie drama with an abstract, arty touch that takes place in a run down limestone mine inhabited by run down people. The story is simple, but the style is complex. I think of Ken Loach, Gummo, Koyaanisqatsi, Nikolaus Geyrhalter, isolationism, and the slow burning of the human mind.

    Winter Brothers has got some amazing actors, great editing and camera work by Maria von Hausswolff, and a weird soundtrack that fits perfectly.

    Ikarie XB 1

    ★★★

    A minimalist Czech sci-fi film from 1963 that most probably inspired both "Solaris" and "2001".
    Good stuff!

  • Alps

    ★★★

    One more time with feeling, but the other way around. No feeling.

    Compared to "The Killing of A Sacred Deer" and "Dogtooth", this is not as brilliant. Still great and highly watchable.
