  • Arrival

    Arrival

    ★★★★½

    Watching this a second time knowing all you know is quite ironical. What surprised me the most was how fast the movie actually plays especially when you know the nature of it. This movie is a masterpiece and an addition to the high art science fiction genre with its rightful place among the greats.

  • Silence

    Silence

    ★★★★

    After years of wanting to make this film, Scorsese finally fabricates this project after The Wolf of Wallstreet with exactly the kind of care, skill and delicacy he always wanted in it. Brilliantly thought provoking and profound as it is, the film looks STUNNING. The colors, framing and cinematography is impeccable. It makes a perfect duet of visuals and storytelling.

  • The African Doctor

    The African Doctor

    ★★

    The African Doctor is a humble tale of a man trying to find acceptance in a small french village. Fairly entertaining, the movie focuses on the racism and narrow-mindedness often found in rural areas in a lighthearted manner, for better or for worse.
    Being based off a true story seems to give it the most cache. While the characters and people on screen carry out the feel-good suspiciously inspiring film.

  • Hugo

    Hugo

    ★★★★½

    I remember watching this movie in bits and pieces when i was young. After years of falling in love with cinema and struggling with my own purpose, coming back to this was truly an adventure. Knowing that Scorsese is himself involved in a lot of film restoration and preservation projects adds a whole other layer of appreciation and charm to Hugo.

    I wouldn't say this is my favourite movie by him, however i would like to clarify that this is his only movie, as of yet, that has made me cry.

  • Love, Death & Robots: Zima Blue

    Love, Death & Robots: Zima Blue

    "This was where i began, a crude little machine with abrely enough intelligence to steer itself... But it was my world. It was all i knew, all i need to know."

    -and now?

    "...I will slowly shut down my higher brain functions, un-making myself, leaving just enough to appreciate my surroundings. To extract some simple pleasure from the execution of a task well done."


    There is a lot of cool stuff in these shorts but i think this might be…

    Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness

    Took me an year to finish this but i finally did it.
    The interview special at the end 'The Tiger King and I' was so awkward.

  • Persepolis

    Persepolis

    ★★★★

    The screening I attended was followed by a live discussion with Marjane herself.
    She came, smoked a cigarette, said, and i qoute,"You know these people they make 300 million dollar films and how are they? What was that one film?... Avatar.. You know? That was a shit film."


    I fell in love.

  • Casino

    Casino

    ★★★★

    The soundtrack in this movie is absolutely crazy and yes that's the only thing i will talk about.
    Go Your Own Way playing on the radio as soon as De Niro and Pesci sit in the car?
    Love is the Drug... The Thrill is Gone..
    Hoochie Coochie Man... House of the Rsining Sun... Stardust.. And so many more.

    But the one that struck me the most was Thème de Camille from Le Mépris.
    Being one of my favorite movie scores…

  • Shutter Island

    Shutter Island

    ★★★★

    While story wise i did not find a lot of stuff that surprised me, it was all very well done and with enough care put into the creation of the environment that it still leaves an impact and has weight. The editing and production design were two main aspects that stood out for me.
