    Berberian Sound Studio

    ★★★½

    I don't know why I've postponed this until today , But Peter Strickland went right away to the list of my favorite directors .

    I've always been fascinated with sound design and its ability to engage the viewers through its precision and the creativity through which it was made , Strickland makes SOUNDS the main theme for his film , utilizing it for creating an eerily atmospheric one ,
    The most impressive thing is that I thought , that film…

    The New Pope

    ★★★★½

    so cynical yet genial and warm ,

    I remember watching it back in 2017 because It was from Sorrentino to see his take on Vatican and the Papacy , only to find out that he created
    The coolest , smartest , most beautiful , absurdly blasphemous yet spiritually nourishing drama , Jude Law's charisma is unprecedented , he dominates the screen with his presence , everyone nailed it actually ,

    Words fail me but this is highly recommended you just have to open your mind if you're christian like I did and not get easily offended,
    then you're in for a surprise.
