    Mission: Impossible III


    jj abrams spectacle and bombast replacing john woos style and elegance. delivers for the popcoke-audience, but tastes stale in the overtone.

  • Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas


    wild enough in the nihilistic absurdism of a world collapsing under the weight of all the intoxications imaginable - brought to life in the heart of mainstream hollywood - to justify the cult status. Gary Buseys derailed cop kiss scene is only one of those jaw-dropping moments creating this joyride of hawaiian shirted non-fuck-giving, end-of-all-times wild hogs gone bonkers.

    Naked Singularity


    no problem with this heist meets sci fi meets social justice mashup. nothing brilliant here but kept my attention, being it because of the morally integre Boyega/feisty precaritan Cooke pairing, Skreins easy to believe creepy asshole or Tim Blake Nelson just showing up as always welcomed oddball. and why not frame it with this "US justice system sucks" narrative? sure, you could handle that topic more seriously but then again i'm preferring such foundation for a diverting construct over the zero-food-zero-waste cinema any day.

    The Witness


    Kafka on the day after. a stoic anti-hero has to endure his existence as political pinball, passively accepting his fate within the absurdity of the soviet times. it's just a thin line between celebrated hero and convict doing jail time in the paranoid world of 50s/60s hungary.

    exceptionally political and thereby bold film, obviously banned upon completion and held in the poison closet for a decade, The Witness is a dark and grim piece dressing up in light and bright…

    you'd think Japan has a problem with earthquakes, tsunamies and volcanoes but it's more like with memory, trauma and gigantic red penises in the sky.

    The Banshees of Inisherin


    McDonaghs period piece set in a remote, secluded and close-to-abstract world of an 1923 irish island. a lot could have gone wrong and i'm not sure if some stuff actually went off the rails - can you depict these folks without making it into a slapstick show? how would an earnest approach look like? could that work (and wouldn't this be the much bigger challenge)?

    gotta take it as fairy tale and allegory. maybe it's a bit simple-minded that way…
