    The Fog of War

    ★★★½

    What "the fog of war" means is: war is so complex it's beyond the ability of the human mind to comprehend all the variables. Our judgment, our understanding, are not adequate. And we kill people unnecessarily - Robert McNamara

  • For All Mankind

    For All Mankind

    ★★½

    This should've been so much better !

    Endless images of astronauts playing with objects in zero gravity and space controllers smoking cigars while pressing some buttons.

    The opening sequence of the shuttle launch is exhilarating but the rest is pretty uninteresting, repetitive, and misleading. They even found a way to make the moon landing underwhelming

    Take Shelter

    ★★★★½

    "ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND ?" Says the magnificent Jessica Chastain

    I went into this knowing nothing (you should do the same) and i came out completely stunned by it. It treats mental illness like no other movie I've seen. It takes his time and the simple but beautiful cinematography makes sure you don't look away for a second.

  • John Wick

    John Wick

    ★★★½

    John Wick checked all the boxes for what a simple action movie should be : highly stylized action scenes, good music, interesting world building and some heart.

    I want to see the sequel, I guess that's a good sign
