A new beginning, a “new start” is what the Yi family is looking for as they move on from the West Coast to a rural city in Arkansas to pursue the American Dream. Jacob (Steven Yeun) has bought for his wife Monica (Han Ye-ri) and his two children David and Anne (newcomers Alan Kim and Noel Kate Cho) a mobile home and fifty acres of land with the intention of starting a farming activity.

Only God Forgives di Nicholas Winding Refn concettualmente potrebbe essere la cosa più vicina ad un adattamento della Divina Commedia di Dante, oltre a The House That Jack Built di Von Trier; nel film c’è un distinto viaggio che il protagonista compie, ma in questo caso non c’è un paradiso e nemmeno il purgatorio, solo l’inferno.
L’inferno è dove il protagonista Julian (Ryan Gosling) sembra rimanere bloccato, e questo è rappresentato dalla città…
The Nest is an effective drama that follows an American family whose patriarch, an ambitious yet ambiguous entrepreneur, takes advantage of a new business opportunity and moves from New York to London with his family.

***not really a 5/5 but more a 3.5/5; this movie though deserves some love, it’s so freaking weird and there are so many cats, and they fly and even lick nipples!***
No. 7 Cherry Lane is one of the weirdest movie i’ve seen; Yonfan’s slow pace may turn someone off, who am i kidding? This is sooooo slow and the characters keep moving in slow-motion.
But hell yeah i was very entertained by it; there are so many pointless characters…

Portrait de la jeune fille en feu tells the story of a young painter, Marianne (Noémie Merlant), who is commissioned to portrait a young lady from a wealthy family, Héloïse (Adèle Haenel), to be used as a marriage proposal to a wealthy man from Milan.
Héloïse has already refused to sit before for portraits, so Marianne has to spy her and act as a lady’s maid.
