    Dunkirk

    ★★★★

    It seems, to me, that with Dunkirk Nolan finally addressed the problems his detractors usually have towards his work. I am one of those detractors, so I am very happy to see him change and adapt.

    His stories often are based on convoluted ideas? This time is only fighting for survival.

    He cannot shot action sequences, expecially close range ones? This film has none. In fact we don't even see the enemy (but we sure feel his presence).

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    ★★★★½

    It's Such a Beautiful Day racconta la storia di Bill (il migliore stick-man che mai sia stato disegnato) e l'aggravarsi del suo disturbo cerebrale: memoria breve, ricordi sfocati, stupore per ogni cosa, una prospettiva diversa sul mondo.

    Con questo film, Don Hertzfeldt compie un vero e proprio salto di qualità, passando dai suoi iconici corti assurdi e violenti ad un racconto toccante e profondo, capace di stupire, divertire ed espandere i limiti dell'animazione con una semplicità sconcertante.
