    ★★★★½

    It's truly a shame that no one's ever heard about this masterpiece 

    (Note: if you're reading this, I'm kinda sure that you haven't watched the film. don't worry, the review doesn't contain spoilers of any kind; it's more of a recommendation. Help yourself) 


    So, we're talking Noir. Not any noir, but the real stuff. Wim Wenders knew what he was dealing with back in 1982. You can consider Hammett (1982) not as an adaptation of any kind but a respectful…

    Horace and Pete: the birth of comic tragedy 


    The camera slowly zooms. We set our eyes on a bar: an old school one. A man walks in; rather overweighted and bald. He starts sweeping up the floor. The other door opens. Another man walks in to the frame; this one's rather thin, in fact, very thin. Looks older than the first man. Goes behind the bar and pours 2 cups of coffee. The first man -Horace- joins him.

    می هم علاج غصۀ ما را نمی کند 
    عیش و نشاط، عقده ز دل وا نمی کند 
     
    خواهم شوم خموش ولی اضطراب دل

    هر کس شراب از خم وارستگی چشید 
    روی طلب به مردم دنیا نمی کند

    حضرت صابر کرمانی 


    I want to go silent, but the fire within my heart

    and Wine isn't enough to cure our sorrow…

    The Hourglass Sanatorium

    ★★★★½

    Federico Fellini: I make Reality look like dream.

    David Lynch: I make dream look like reality. 

    Luis Buñuel: I mix reality and dreams and you can't tell which one is which. 



    Wojciech Has: F#ck reality; it's a useless piece of garbage, I DON'T NEED IT. 







    P.s: it's a really well made movie, but a little too much for me (and I couldn't watch it in a right circumstance) so I didn't really connect with it; maybe a rewatch after few months.

    Have a great day.
