    ★★★★

    If I were Jake Gyllenhaal and I met another Jake Gyllenhaal, I’d totally fuck and marry myself. Just saying.

    In a more movie-reviewing take, ‘Enemy’ is Denis Villeneuve’s beautiful and twisted mind-bender thriller with a spellbinding performance(s) from the always interesting Jake Gyllenhaal.

    Belok Kanan Barcelona

    ★★½

    Masih gak ngerti kenapa para pembuat film ini maksain karakter-karakter ceritanya untuk keliling dunia - dari Copenhagen ke Los Angeles ke Budapest (!) ke Pantai Gading (!!) ke Gurun Sahara (!!!) - kalo ternyata gak punya bujet cukup untuk, at least, ngegarap efek visual dari negara-negara itu yang enak untuk diliat mata. Duh. Kalo gak ada duit ya udah... belok kanan ketemuin aja langsung sama Barcelona. Gak usah ngalor-ngidur kesana kemari. Kesal akutu jadinya.

    The House with a Clock in Its Walls

    ★★★

    'The House with a Clock in its Walls' has some fun, enchanting moments but mostly... meh... forgettable.

  • Searching

    Searching

    ★★★½

    Few hiccups along the way - with some of them can not be tamed by the movie’s innovative and stylish visual presentation - but overall Aneesh Chaganty’s debut offers a well-constructed and well-acted thriller.
