    The Fallout

    ★★★★½

    - English version below -

    Der Prozess des Heilens. Schwere seelische Traumata und soziale Ängste, die zu tiefschürfenden psychischen Schäden führen. Wie soll man mit solchen inneren Wunden umgehen, wie kann man sich ihnen stellen und was kann man tun, um sie schließlich zu heilen? The Fallout versucht sich an der Porträtierung eines solchen seelischen Heilungsprozesses und ist als solche ein wahrer Triumph.

    Selten wurden die Versuche des Verdrängens, des Vergessens aber auch des Verarbeitens mit dermaßen viel Feingefühl eingefangen…

    You can find a full review in german here.

    Despite my prior hype I really wasn't sure how this would turn out but let me tell you guys that with Occhiali Neri Dario Argento is back with full force. His first directional effort in ten years has got everything that made him so influental in the 70s and 80s. The look is absolutely gorgeous, the music both mesmerizing and striking and there is some really weird stuff going on that…

    The Black Phone

    ★★★

    There is a very strange yet very effective usage of the song On the Run by Pink Floyd in this movie that perfectly captures my feelings towards The Black Phone. This film is a weird mixture of many different things that should not at all work together but somehow they do nevertheless. Above all, The Black Phone is a movie about solidarity and about what it means to stand up not only for yourself but also for the ones you…

    Creep

    ★★★½

    Just as good as when I first watched this six years ago. The idea of spending time with someone who does nothing but exclusively manipulates you with lies is absolutely terrifying. Just imagine you meet someone new at, like, a party and every word they tell you about themselves is not only false but hypocritical and full of evil intentions. In our daily life we rely so heavily on assuming that what others tell us is the truth that once you discover that that might just not be the case it becomes absolute nightmare fuel. And that's exactly what this movie is.

    ★★★★

    Man merkt leider schon sehr deutlich, dass Dune die Bürde auferlegt bekommen hat, sowohl als Einführung in eine vermutlich grandiose Geschichte/Welt als auch als eigenständiger Film funktionieren zu müssen. Villeneuve schultert diese Herausforderung ziemlich gut, macht das beste draus, aber die Chefs von Warner Brothers sind halt einfach profitorientierte Wichser. Eine vollständig durchdachte Konzeptionalisierung wie bei einem George Lucas oder einem Peter Jackson scheint heutzutage leider absolut nicht mehr denkbar. Schade, hätte Villeneuve seinen Willen…

    What Is a Woman?

    I don't even have to see this since the trailer already gives away that this documentary would be the most disgusting transphobic shit I'd see all month. Someone should have thrown this guy to the lions and let him have to interview Judith Butler. That's something I actually would have watched as it's always a pleasure to see conservative right wing scum getting roasted :~)
