    Waking Life

    ★★½

    As fragmentary this movie is, not using a typical coherent storyline, I decided to publish here instead of a review the notes I took while watching Waking Life. Positive and negative points mixed.

    _ the form of the movie is actually exactly that what the novel writer in the bar explains: story? It's just scenes, people, emotions..

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Batman v Superman ist ein großartiger Film, doch ist er auch der bisher umstrittenste Film 2016 und wird es wahrscheinlich auch bleiben. Bereits 2013, als er auf der Comic-Con angekündigt wurde, ein Jahr nach Christopher Nolans überragendem Meisterwerk „The Dark Knight Rises“, war der Film schon umstritten.

Richtig ging es dann erst los, als bekannt gegeben wurde, dass Oscar-Preisträger Ben Affleck den Fledermausmann verkörpern sollte. Nachdem…
