    The American Friend

    ★★★½

    This film is fantastically made, very dense in atmosphere, great camera, great actors - it almost doesn't matter that the story doesn't make a lot of sense. Why does the main character believe the complete strangers who step into his life only to ask him to do something completely outside of morality and legality? It does not make any sense. Why in the world are these people in the ambulance in that one scene?
    That being said, I still really enjoyed the film, it had a real grip on me. And it really is quite stunning visually. Hopper is great, but Bruno Ganz is fantastic.

    Very luvly!
    How did Silva get the Michael Jackson song? Isn't that super expensive?
    Some beautiful underwater pictures. Simple. Beautiful. Poetic. Ben Harpers voice is luvly.

    Was nominated for Short Film Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival 2016.

    Alright animation pasted all over with heavy sticky emotional music and and a very unoriginal story.

    ★★★★

    Love how the character of Daniel Day-Lewis' is developed, and his acting of the role of course. The story is incredible but simple: terrible injustice, innocent people fraimed and thrown into jail. But it's less about the story but how the main character grows through these events and experiences into the man he later becomes. It's emotional, includes few clichés but it's all very well made and therefore believable and not cheesy.
