    ★★★

    The story of tonight is about a helpless monkey-like animal who loses his musical partner and parent figure, making it all quiet uptown. He won't give up his shot at delivering a song to the long lost love of his partner, one last time. So he joins hands with an energy-packed teenager on a perilous journey with guns and ships through swamps and hurricanes, doing everything they can to stay alive, before arriving in Miami to get into the room…

    Dune

    ★★

    Denis Villeneuve's Dune is grandeur at a scale I haven't seen in the cinema since... perhaps never. It's a stunning masterpiece that spares no expense in creating the awe-inspiring landscapes and sets that makes every scene suitable for framing. It's expertly orchestrated by a magnificent score by Hans Zimmer, and Timothee Chalamet and the rest of the cast are amazing. However, Dune is an atrocious movie. Dune is not a movie, it's an art piece. A 2 hour and 35-minute long, five-star, art piece. And at that, it excels. Go watch this on the biggest screen you can find, anything else is a waste of time.

    Luck

    Luck looks like a high-school project, has a boring story and is apparently made by Skydance Animation, which is headed by John Lasseter, (alleged) creep and ex-Pixar executive. No amount of witty, lucky cats voiced by Simon Pegg or camp unicorns voiced by Flula Borg can save it.

  • Dersu Uzala

    Dersu Uzala

    ★★★

    Dersu Uzala is a movie about the friendship between Captain Arsenev, a Russian cartographer, and the titular Dersu, a native Nanai trapper. Together they explore the far eastern edges of Russia, enduring all the hardships and beauty nature has to offer. The cinematography is stellar, and the two lead actors' performance is excellent. It is however a bit long, and revels in its slow nature scenes a bit too much.

    Pather Panchali

    ★★

    A well shot slice-of-life film about how horrible it is to be poor but also how interesting you become as a person from it (?). My god this is boring and doesn’t tell an interesting story in the slightest.

  • Quo vadis, Aida?

    Quo vadis, Aida?

    ★★★★

    Quo Vadis, Aida? is an impactful film about the genocide in Srebrenica in 1995, helping filling the glaring hole in my modern European history knowledge. We follow Aida (Jasna Djuricic), a Bosnian translator employed by the UN forces, as the Serbs invade Srebrenica and force the inhabitants to the UN base. It's a chilling story about how brutal the events were, and how helpless the Dutch UN forces were in handling the situation.

    Djuricic delivers a powerful performance, and the…
