    Chungking Express


    Help! I'm obsessed with this movie and my love for it doesn't seem to have an expiring date!

    It's so unique, the characters are so tenderly irrational, the images are full of desire and I simply love the camera work here - the city with its hyperactivity, these overwhelming cascades of neon light and its fragmentic reality is being portrayed as this place in which anything seems possible and yet so unreachable. Besides, I dare you to name me one…

    Rewatched this with the commentary track on this time around and it played out almost like an ASMR video with Timothée Chalamet and Michael Stuhlbarg sensually whispering how much they enjoyed being part of the movie.

It's hard to go into detail without giving too much away, so let's just say the tension - sometimes subliminal, sometimes…

  • Interstellar



    English tl;dr
    Do you know that feeling when even at your first time experiencing a movie you can relatively easy put the finger on its flaws, but after watching through it you still leave the theater in absolute awe? This was one of those experiences!

    Yes, the movie is flawed: almost everytime a character opens his mouth it doesn't sound like a real human being, but more like a script and together with the very dialogue-heavy exposition the beginning of…
