    Kesha: Rainbow - The Film

    It’s called rainbow because.... because after a storm there is a rainbow *starts crying*

    WTF? That’s not even a documentary, it’s a 30 minute commercial...

  • The Lady Eve

    The Lady Eve

    ★★★½

    Jean: You see, Hopsi, you don't know very much about girls. The best ones aren't as good as you probably think they are and the bad ones aren't as bad. Not nearly as bad.

    For further reading:

    Because whether Sturges's subject is marriage, politics, small town values, or Hollywood itself, his are films where irony and sweetness might walk arm and arm, looking for somewhere to be alone.

    American Sniper

    ★½

    Mit zuverlässiger Regelmäßigkeit werden Tarantinos Fake Filme zur Realität.
    Erst "Machete" nun "Stolz der Nation".

  • Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans

    Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans

    ★★★★★

    Wenn mich demnächst nochmal jemand fragt was ich den bloß an Stummfilmen finden würde, dann ist Sunrise der Film den ich dieser Person zeigen würde.
    Der Film setzt keine technischen Meilensteine, dafür holt er aber alles aus der verfügbaren Technik heraus und perfektioniert das emotionale Geschichtenerzählen wie es nur mit Stummfilmbildern möglich ist.
