    ★★★★★

    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.

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

  • mother!

    mother!

    ½

    At first I thought about writing BULLSHIT a hundred times but then I realised that I'm way too angry to not talk about Mother!.

    In hindsight that damn exclamation mark and the way it appeared on screen should have been a warning sign. The way the title - and with it the exclamation mark is sitting there between two of the worst moments of the movie bothers me even more now than I did while watching it. Throughout the movie…
