    ★★★½

    Worked very well on my tv-screen. Turned out a whole different film. Compact and loaded. Two years ago I had a different ride. On a very w-i-d-e screen. Etcetera...

    ★★½

    A Sydney Lumet film always caches my eye. "Strip Search" is an extremely urgent project that has some difficulty meeting the target.
    A mixed ensemble also makes it lose focus. Glenn, Maggie and Peter Jacobson are just right for the task, while Ken Leung is out on his own mission.
    - All I can do is exactly what?

    Only Lovers Left Alive

    ★★½

    May we go somewhere with a door I could close?
    This is a pretty sloppy assembled piece of filmmaking. That goes for story, direction and design. JimJ has a loyal fan base that I do not intend to upset or spoil their fun, but this time your icon is pretentious too. Trying actually to appear as well-read and educated. As usual, the film is built around the music. The story and images are ghastly meaningless and empty. And actor Tom Hiddleston meets his nemesis. And OLLA is quite condescending to its audience. Grrrrr.....

    ★★½

    First Australian film , I have watched, without a single characteristic windmill in sight. A strained dystopian saga that winds its way along the dead straight gravel roads, lined with the usual odd cliché characters, towards the expected finale. Totally pointless. Beautiful as well as hard-hitting. The women in the flick tries hard to shake some action.
