    Zero Dark Thirty

    ★★½

    I always had a hard time with american patriotism. Don't you realize you are this world's bad guy ?

    An overly long justification for horrible acts committed by the secret services in an attempt to silence a man who knew too much about the government hunting him

    I don't think it was anything special at all. It got so boring and uninteresting that I lost track with the story-line and nothing mattered anymore.

    ★★★

    "A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti" - oops wrong movie

    I don't know, I don't think there was enough meat on the bone. A great premise, a good atmosphere, interesting characters, but at the end, the movie leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth.

    While it is well-made and offers some impressive moments here and there, Raw is one of those films that is sickening and disturbing, but also find a way to be a dull and forgettable mess

    "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.

    I finally watched 2001

    The perfect setup : midnight screening on LSD

    Saying this was the cinematic experience of a lifetime would be an understatement. There's not much left to say about this masterpiece.

    Incredibly articulate practical effects. Mind-blowing that it was filmed 50 years ago. Kubrick out did himself with imagination and creativity, he created this amazing new beautiful world, and you can get lost in it, if you let yourself.
