    What the Day Owes the Night

    ★★★½

    J'avais trop peur que le film me déçoive, puisque J'avais beaucoup aimé le livre..
    Merveilleux. Bouleversant. Musique parfaite. Bravo à Alexandre Arcade qui m'a emmenée en Algérie, celle que me décrivait Khadra /Kateb/ Camus entre les lignes, il ne manquait que les parfums. Je n'ai pas pu retenir mes larmes à la fin.

    I Am Not Your Negro

    ★★★★½

Fantastic is the word indeed.

    What makes the movie really striking is the believable story-line with good casting and editing. Forget Wild, These Tales Are Savage!
    The hilarious satire that is "Wild Tales" deserves every award that it's won. I highly recommend it.
