  • Rescue Dawn

    Rescue Dawn

    ★★★

    When an American fighter plane crashes in Vietnamese wilderness, it’s pilot Dieter is captured by local tribesmen. Narrating the incidents in a near documentary methodology, Werner Herzog scraps the survival instinct of human spirit against natural hurdles clubbing them with the ones caused by warfare.

    With Christian Bale giving an electric central performance, Rescue Dawn might not lie in the top echelons of Herzog’s works but is still an eccentric and often poetic take upon necessity of hope in times of crisis.

    ★★★★½

    One week at the hauntingly beautiful beach, one hour in the treacherously serene skyline and one day riding over the hurricane tides at sea; Christopher Nolan stirred the ingredients in a potion of survival and hope, giving us the monumentally mounted and astoundingly ambitious magic, Dunkirk.

    I am Jack's smirking anger. The ludicrous introductions stumbled shakily to a middle that was absolutely all over the place. I still kept…

    Captain Fantastic

    ★★★★

    "She's got eyes of the bluest skies
    As if they thought of rain
    I hate to look into those eyes
    And see an ounce of pain."

    Such warmth. Such affection. And such splendid uniqueness. It's as if our eternal sun has engulfed the artificiality of society and all that remains is bright light of healing. It's as if we have reshaped our language back to its primal senses, shunning away the euphemisms so that our feelings are no longer merely…
