    Love Exposure

    ★★★★★

    I don't know if it's even possible to talk about this film in a short review like this one.
    Love Exposure is epic, funny, innovative, fresh, disturbing, shocking, heavy, bloody, crazy, hilarious, dramatic, sad, long, poetic, monumental, odd, clever, thrilling, weird, beautiful, during it's 4 hours of runtime not one second boring, and so so so much more...
    You really can't describe it. You have to see it!

    Definitely one of my favorite films. Can't wait to see more from Sion Sono.

    Don't Breathe

    ★★★½

    Inexplicable easy break-ins into highly secured surroundings, dogs neutralized by intoxicated wieners, attempts to escape through ventilation shafts. Is this the first faithful movie adaptation of Hitman?

    ★★★

    This is incredibly beautiful and detailed and yet so... empty on the inside. Anderson tries to become more political and fails horribly, seeming to have a pretty accurate expectation about how this film is perceived and yet breaking his own rules every few minutes. This whole thing about Japan is offensively abused as an object of stylization without having any deeper meaning and I fail to see how this commitment to the presentation of language is more than a gimmick.…

    The Theory of Everything

    ★★

    More like "The Practice of Making Everything Boring".

    Pretty uninspired biopic after the standard formula that in some parts kind of forgets that Hawkings wasn't only disabled but also a scientist, without surprises except for the actually good and not too exaggerated performance by Eddie Redmayne.

    Vince Vaughn: How can I make people not think of me as a comedy actor anymore?

    S. Craig Zahler: Well, how about you scalp some Mexican drug dealers on the cell floor of a high security prison?
