    Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

    ★★

    So many questions, like: why do we see a chicken’s head get cut off in the psychedelic background of that 2001-inspired faster-than-light boat sequence?

  • The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    ★★★

    This would've worked so much better if instead of everyone, only the teenager had been weird.

    National Treasure

    ★★

    I was looking for something silly to watch, and that's what I got. National Treasure is like a two hour long Bassie & Adriaan episode, and pretty entertaining at that. Shame on that 'romantic subplot' though. Drommels!

    Raw

    ★★★★★

    I'm stunned! Raw is filled to the brim with strong cinematic moments, completely over the top yet amazingly steadfast. Heartfelt about a topic you would not think this was possible with. Exuberant, intense, symbolic, funny, and yes, rather raw. The kind of movie that leaves you with the sense that you've been lifted up, slapped in the face and changed a bit. From a debutant movie maker that I'll definitely keep an eye on. I rate it five gnawed drumsticks.
