    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…

    Great play by Vincent Gallo, a very charismatic actor with enough to offer, especially in this role. Basically the main reason I gave it a watch. Sadly the rest of the movie is a boring family drama with moments that are very theatrical and sentimental. Sometimes the images are quite nice, like in the flashbacks which create a solid atmosphere at times. Basically vintage Coppola. In the end not really remarkable except for Gallo’s play.

    ★★★½

    Eggers goes big, it’s less ambitious than The Witch and The Lighthouse and for sure more accessible. It's clunky and brutal, moves slow and feels heavy, but is nowhere really memorable. It has some edgy scenes but they don’t really leave an impact, it feels like this was made just for the sake of being a brutal, somehow basic revenge. It has some fantasy elements to it (which are by far the best parts), but it could’ve been a bit…

    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…
