    The 120 Days of Bottrop

    ★★★

    Sometimes very funny, but sometimes a bit too much and I think I’d have appreciated it more if it was a bit shorter, it got a bit repetetive (both intentionally and unintentionally I guess). I also think this is way less funny when you haven’t seen the movies it references and because of the fact that I haven’t seen that much Fassbinder and such that might have influenced my enjoyment.

    La Collectionneuse

    ★★★★

    Wasn’t completely in the right mood to watch this. It’s very monologue heavy and at times my thoughts got carried away, but it did look pretty enough and I see how I could like this better on a rewatch.

    The Captain

    ★★★★½

    Der Hauptmann is no easy watch. Everything from the dark humor to the soundtrack makes this one of the most suffocating movies I have seen. Because of that it leaves a very strong impression and gives a lot of food for thought. And I guess that is something all of the moviegoers felt up to a certain level, because nobody said a word after the end credits had rolled (those end credits are great BTW).

    Der Hauptmann is about power…

  • A Star Is Born

    A Star Is Born

    ★★★

    A star is born isn’t as special as the four star ratings wanted me to believe. I liked the first half way more than the second and it definitely could’ve lost a couple of minutes. There was no need for it to be as long as it was. I also think that there were a few things that would’ve been more interesting to focus on than they did. I really liked the scenes at the beginning where Ally is weirded…
