    Deadwood: The Movie

    ★★★★½

    At least one great HBO show got the ending it deserved in 2019. So satisfying.

    Hamlet

    ★½

    I love that there's a film which features Ethan Hawke and Kyle MacLachlan as antagonists but why of all things does it have to be this one? Transferring Shakespeare into modern times would have to mean more that just letting a New York hipster cite lines thus robbing them of all their poetry. An embarrassment for everyone involved. At least this film reminded me of how brillant Baz Luhrmann did with his Romeo + Juliet adaptation.

    I love this film even more than its main character loves mushrooms.

    Room

    ★★★★

    In terms of action or star power, ROOM, at first sight, might not seem as spectacular as other Oscar contenders from this year. But in my opinion, it deserves all prices in the world. The acting is nothing short of perfect and the forcefully told story ends on a gentle, life-affirming note without one second of false sentiment or even cynism. Very rare these days.
