    ★★★

    Watched it with my daughters. They liked it, and my youngest (now 6) noted it'd be funny if someone called her a walking carpet too.

    mother!

    ★★

    Aren't allegories supposed to make sense as standalone stories? (The first half did, and then it all went to hell.) I liked Aronofsky's first Bible adaptation way better.

    ★★

    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!

    ★★★★★

    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.
