    Farewell My Concubine


    Cinema World Tour, Film #124
    Country: China (Mainland) (1 of 2)

    This is the type of film I'd like to see. This is the type of content I'd like to surround myslef with. Strange, beautiful performances enbedded in a political and historical context I don't know very much about.
    Farewell, my Concubine is a very grand and majestic film. This is an incredible achievement, something I haven't ever seen in this form before. It's a beautiful and heartbreaking homoerotic love…

    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. Warum Batman gegen Superman? Warum Zack Snyder, möchte man DC-Verfilmungen den guten Ruf nehmen? Richtig ging es dann erst los, als bekannt gegeben wurde, dass Oscar-Preisträger Ben Affleck den Fledermausmann verkörpern sollte. Nachdem…
