    Wild at Heart

    ★★★★★

    I haven't had this refreshing film after a film since I rewatched Inherent Vice last year when news where showing nothing but shit. It's like feeling cold or otherwise dirty and going to warm sauna after a hard day and then coming out, taking something to drink and feel like world makes sense even if it is only for few seconds until it starts to wear off. This is for me the only way to describe Wild at Heart -…

    ★★★★★

    It's just so absurd feeling to listen all day long the terrifying news from ignorance towards creeping climate change that decides the fate of humanity and wonder about one's mortality and then stumble upon a film that's been on your watch list for years and simply stare at it in awe. Nomad is a revelation, absurd and hard to put into words, but so goddamn beautiful. At points it is pure cinematic bliss and aesthetic pleasure, at points a single…

    I love the way Ebrahimifar leads us to another person's memory in a way that echoes both fantastical realism and reverence towards the life of another - in a long tracking shot we walk through the hallways of a hospital as they slowly transform into an alley full of light and we are suddenly in the depths of the memoirs written by the old man our photographer protagonists has brought to the hospital, written by him but dreamed cinematically in…

    A Moment of Innocence

    ★★★★★

    After watching this film, I realized I'm never going to be film critic or scholar. This beautiful feeling that I'm feeling cannot be put to words. I've realized that the greatest films are something about what you can write and write, try to open them and their beauty, try to ease your burden and wonderment but you simply can't put them to words. I've loved film theory but after a film like this, I can't help but to pretty much…

    ★★★★★

    There's a song that goes "How can you tell me, that you're lonely". The power that this song has on me, has also Bresson's piece on Mouchette (but on very different way and perhaps on very different level as well).

    We have seen many tears on the screen but have they ever been so pure and beautiful? She isn't martyr even though she shines similar light. When I think about "martyr", something unclean comes to my mind. I don't know…
