    ★★★

    Such an interesting and evocative project. These audiovisual experiences, in different ways, explore the inner relation of cinema and music. Grandrieux opens this with a striking study of psyche and music. His work is the best one in the series for sure. I also liked how De Laborde's exercise demonstrates the line between stillness and flowing. Lav Diaz short was a little underwhelming. The ending feature is also an interesting view on opera and cinema.

    Sweet and lovable, tender and soft, romantic and sad, classical and modern, attractive and simple, personal and universal, sensational and thoughtful, lost and found.

  • Shoplifters

    Shoplifters

    Shoplifters is the second film I've watched from Koreeda's works and I like his style in Japan's contemporary cinema. Shoplifter's approach to capture the sense of living is by the use of Mise-en-scène and deep focuses on his characters. I loved all the performances and you could completely feel the situations they were dealing with.

  • Blow Out

    Blow Out

    Blow Out is one of DePalma's best works for me. The use of colors and sound effects that makes a harmonic picture and by this use DePalma captures the beauty and ugliness of human conditions. Blow Out is a film that we can see his inspirations from other works like Antonioni's Blow Up. John Travolta is in one of his most remarkable roles.
