    The Bandit

    ★★

    If this movie was a liquid, it would be pitch. It is incredibly slow. And although it picks up a bit in the middle, overall it's a badly executed chaotic mess. Its only redeeming features are Sener Sen – who plays Baran the bandit – and the well made cinematography by Ugur Içbak. Other than that, it's badly acted, badly edited and badly written.

    A beautiful homage to the musicals of the past. A rare example of a movie that contradicts the usual statement of "they don't make movies like this anymore". Perhaps cramming too many references and pandering a bit too much to Hollywood. Gosling and Stone are great actors, but not as great singers and dancers. The brilliant Cinematography of Linus Sandgren deserves a mention; with long takes alternated with quick cuts, all accompanied by wonderful use of colour.

    ★★★★

    In this nightmare of a movie we follow two light house keepers (Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson) in the late 1800s and their descent into madness. It's well shot (4:3 black and white) and well acted.

    They don't make movies like this anymore, well, except they do apparently.
