    Citizen Kane

    ★★★★★

    So, I’ve finally seen this hugely influential and essential classic. What can I possibly say? It’s Citizen Kane! But oh yes, it's terrific. It's quite an intimidating fact that Welles starred in, wrote, produced and directed probably the most influential film of all time at an age of 25. Well, I still have a few years to accomplish something like that.

    Koyaanisqatsi

    ★★★★½

    A truly powerful, unique and hypnotic experimental documentary film that bears some resemblance of Man with a Movie Camera. There's no real narrative, it's a really well-executed, grand and symphonic montage of cleverly juxtaposed and contextualized images. It's rather visual poetry showing order and disorder, the effect man has on earth, and at times its just an overwhelming, jaw-dropping experience with its strikingly beautiful images and powerful score. There's simply no dull moment in its 87 minutes runtime, if you just let it wash over you. This beautiful shit is meant to be experienced, preferably in a theater.

Moonlight is magical. The slow pace coupled with the dreamy atmosphere, the often dizzying yet confident camera work, the gorgeously lit and soft tone, and the touches and little looks they give each other, its all reminiscent of the style of Wong Kar-wai. I believe there's even a…

    ★★★★★

    Still the coolest, most poignant, groovy, paranoiac, drug-induced and beautiful piece of non-sense i've seen. I still don't know what's really going on. The Ouija board scene is so beautiful. The whole film fills me with warm joy and sad melancholy, while making me all dizzy. It's a blast. It's too perfect.
