    Barry Lyndon

    ★★★★★

    Reevaluated for: Stanley Kubrick – Ranked

    How do I even express my admiration for this film? Where do I begin? On this second viewing, one of many more I'm sure, I noticed more than the first time around. Most importantly, I now fully realised (and I have no idea how I missed so much of it the first time around) how much humour is infused in the story. The whole order of nobility is essentially ridiculed in Barry Lyndon. Both…

    Cold Case Hammarskjöld

    ★★★★

    Mads Brügger drags you so far down this absolutely insane rabbit hole of grotesque cover-ups, ridicilous "maybes", and jaw-dropping statements that you're left gasping for air all the way through the last act.

The politics are at times heavy handed, the relationships aren't too compelling and the manslaughter case never feels very exciting, emotional or even important. It's not…

    Waltz with Bashir

    ★★

    Effortlessly (and purposefully) avoids any discussion or condemnation of Israel's grotesque military policy and continous imperialist intensions, instead focusing on the (shockingly mild) mental struggles of those who to varying degree partook in the atrocities. I have a really hard time caring even one bit about the wartime struggles these soldier went through, even more so when it's all animated. For example, the daring escape from the tank had me thinking about anything other than the soldier on screen. This…
