    Come True

    ★★★★

    Original sci-fi horror film that takes its inspiration from Cronenberg (both father and son) and Lynch, but still retains its own vision and execution. It’s filled with surreal nightmare sequences which results in a creepy atmosphere. But where it distinguish itself is in the style, its stylistically shot with some blue filter and lighting, the ambient synth soundtrack (Electric Youth!) give it some retro vibes to it, there’s even a scene which is almost a hommage to Drive. Maybe the third…

    Absolutely Béla Tarr’s Magnus Opus

    Tarr’s take on the apocalypse in reverse order of God who created the world in six days. Everything He made now slowly stops working, where on the seventh day the light stops shining. In the beginning a link with Nietzsche is made, namely the horse that Nietzsche would have seen on the street be beaten, after which he fell around the neck sobbing and never wrote again in his life. It’s actually based on a…

    ★★★

    Fun movie, with a nice twist to its execution. The real versions of the characters pop up all the time in the film, sometimes even in the re-enacted scenes, together with the actors. Due to a particularly artful use of editing, this works excellently, without distracting from the most exciting and often very funny events. The plot isn't really that much, but the lively lead roles (Evan Peters in particular is great here) and the remarkably honest interview fragments with those involved make for a fun viewing experience.

    Five Easy Pieces

    ★★½

    Some very strong scenes, but the story as a whole lacked development for me: everyone is still grumpy and disillusioned, gruff and bored. Until the great end, then decisions are finally made. The sensitive family theme’s in the last three quarters of an hour is not touched with me. Visually also quite nice at times, but not too special in comparison with some other films from that area.

    ★★★★½

    Noé can’t miss.
    A personal mix of a small cinema essay, a YSL promotion and a short mockumentary where a film set turns to hell. Visually not his best but certainly his most aggressive, the last 20 minutes are an intense spiritual trip. 

    The course of this film is again typical Noé, in which the audiovisual aspect becomes more and more intense and the stress and hectic pace increase. Despite the lack of sex, drugs and harsh violence it knows…
