    ★★★

    I saw Stalker at the cinema 2 days ago and I'm still wrestling with my thoughts on it. It is obviously beautiful to look at and immensely ambitious, but the script didn't have an impact on me

    This movie relies heavily on atmosphere, philosophy, and complexity, and viewers who are patient - I think i'm patient - should be pleased. Unfortunately, the plot was lost on me... Lots of philosophizing about God and the meaning of life, metaphysics, etc. that…

    "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.
