    Wild at Heart

    ★★★★★

    I haven't had this refreshing feeling after a film since I rewatched Inherent Vice last year when news were 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 -…

    Nomad

    ★★★★★

    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…

    "War has changed people and made their lives uncertain with another tragedy possibly around the corner. Darkness around the train reminds the people of death and makes the unknown their constant companion, one cannot see the landscapes outside the windows but instead finds themselves head-on with their own reflections – thus the train ride itself becomes a symbolic journey of self-discovery."

    The Fear

    This violent and fierce psychological thriller set in the Greek countryside, echoing both Youssef Chahine's Cairo Station and the work of Kim Ki-young, focuses on a farmer family whose reputation among the local community is questionable. The family is barely together, what seems to hold them together is their reputation. Responsibility prevents the hatred from taking completely over and the love the parents feel for their daughter manifests in their talks of sending her away. The Fear is certainly one…

    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…
