    I heard people talk about immortality,
    but I ain't seen it.
    l wondered how it'd be when l died.
    What it'd be like to know that this breath now
    was the last one you was ever gonna draw.
    l just hope l can meet it the same way she did.
    With the same... calm.
    Cos that's where it's hidden -
    the immortality l hadn't seen.

    What's it like to be lying in the middle of an unfamiliar jungle with birds…

    This is quite possibly the most uncomfortable I've ever been watching a film/documentary, and I recommend you watch it if you can.

    Imagine this.
    You are shy. Extremely shy. In fact, you don't like to talk, especially to strangers. And yet here you are, in a foreign country, being interviewed by someone who speaks another language (although he also speaks yours). You are a jazz pianist. Quite famous in some places.

    So here you are, for 1 hour, on a…

    How bad is it to call this a decent thriller when it is based on a real-life terrorist event? It's that voyeurism thing. We want to know what happened. We want to see it. Talk about giving the f*ckers what they want. I feel sick.

    Dogtooth is disturbing. It creeps into your psyche and stays there for days. It plays like an absurdist comedy at first but quickly shows its true colours. It is a gripping, compelling, shocking and extremely sad story of three nameless nearly adult children who live in a world created exclusively by their parents.

    By "nameless" I don't mean that we are never told their names; I mean they have no names. The implications of this are enormous (take a minute…

    Man of Steel

    ★★

    There is a scene in Man of Steel that says it all.

    In the middle of a showdown with the bad guys in downtown Metropolis with people everywhere, a flaming truck or some other huge thing is thrown towards Superman who is standing in front of a building. A building presumably filled with people.

    Superman jumps out of the way.
    He jumps out of the way.
    Superman.

    The truck goes into the building destroying I don't how many floors killing…
