  • Titanic

    Titanic

    ★★★★★

    Titanic has always held a special place in my heart and of all my favourite movies it's the one I've had the longest history with. The first time I watched the movie, or rather parts of it, must have been in the early 2000s when I visited some relatives for Christmas and my cousin and I got bored and when we turned on the TV the ship just started to sink, which was pretty scary back then. A few years…

    Stoker

    ★★★★★

    When it comes to Stoker there's a lot to talk about and to analyse, be it in relation to Park's other movies or on its own but ultimately that one thing that stood out for me the most – what makes it so special for me – among the many things I like about the movie is the piano scene. While rewatching Stoker I wonder every time if the scene is really as intense as I remember it to be…

    The Story of Film: An Odyssey

    ★½

    Decided to give The Story of Film a chance despite my issues with Women Make Film. It didn’t go well.

    One of the things I didn’t like about Cousins’ follow up, Women Make Film, was that it jumps from here to there without any interest in telling a chronological story. Here he not only sticks to a timeline but also focuses on different movements in different parts of the world, only making big jumps when he wants to show how…

    Obituary for a Murderer

    ★★★½

    Finally watched what is maybe the rarest Haneke. Obituary for a Murderer was made for a TV program that focused on experimental movies (god, can you even imagine something like that today) and was mostly unavailable since then due to copyright issues, hence why it’s so hard to track down. I luckily caught the only screening at a retrospective to celebrate Haneke’s 80th birthday before it disappears in the archives again.

    I’m not sure if this movie would be interesting…

    Isabelle Huppert did not come all the way from France to see Suicide Squad win an Oscar.

    The Piano Teacher

    ★★★★★

    My mum doesn't watch a lot of movies. We live in the middle of nowhere and the only cinema near us only shows bad comedies or action movies, genres we both don't like very much. After I was old enough to go to the theater on my own she didn't watch movies outside of our living room for almost a decade because going to Vienna just to watch a movie seemed like too much of an effort. But a few…
