    Ghost in the Shell

    ★★★½

    I wasn't expecting something so meditative. I thought this would be an action/sci-fi type of film. And while it's that on a level, it's some much more on a deeper level. It made me think a lot of Blade Runner. The way the cyborgs are constantly wondering about who they are and if they're really human was really interesting. I really liked the look of the film: the animation is really good and the city looks great; pretty neat considering…

    Nostalgia

    ★★★

    Although Nostalgia has a pretty straight forward narrative, intercut by some dreamy sequences, I found it sometimes hard to follow.

We recently had started watching his films (A Clockwork Orange, The Shining and FMJ). We had heard of 2001 before, but didn't…

    Stalker

    ★★★★★

    It's beautiful. Once again, I'm at lost for words trying to describe how splendid a Tarkovsky movie is. If the sepia scenes are perfect then each shot in the Zone is the apotheosis of perfection. This movie is so fascinating, but I think nothing fascinates me more than the Zone itself. The way the stalker talks about the Zone it's as if it was another character of the story. It's like the Zone is alive, much like the titular planet…
