    Rebellion for a Woman


    Another brilliant entry in the Jidaigeki-genre from Kobayashi, who very well may be my favorite Japanese director of the old guard.
    With a breathtaking cinematography and a cast that is working so well together, this is another epic about the hypocrisy of the feudal Japanese times.
    As always in his movies, the forefront is the humanity that seems to crush on the harsh realism and crudeness of society. The lower your caste, the worse you're being…

    Mother of the Year!


    How does a Woman evolve if the only thing she had in her Youth was her looks, her moves, how to make a good cheesecake and nothing more? Perfectly adapted by the Main Actress Joanne Woodward, this snippet in the life of a frustrated Widow and her two daughters is a heartbreaking allure through emotions.

    But not without its uplifting moments, that's for sure.
    It's a delight to hear her rant, that would even leave Mink…

    Tories need love too


    Bittersweet and very bleak, this movie has the most broken Characters I've seen in a while. What a force of nature and anger, with such a bleak look at the bleakest city in the bleakest region of England.

    The ranting from Joseph are truthful statements about our contemporary beings, depressed and angry with only a hair drop needed to burst into complete Apocalypse and destruction.

    The love interest here finally has some real meaning, without being…

    Boring Work, Good Movie Entry #XC:
    The Spanish Gardener

    A drop of Blood Diamond on soaked red soil of The Constant Gardener, this movie is gripping and devastating in his execution about a Woman who searches for her lost Sister in the middle of a Warzone about a cobalt mine.
    Not a bad buy at all, Netflix.

    What a Beast of a Movie!


    From perfect Camera, Sound and incredible Actors and all rapped up in the first Brainsplatter, as I like to call this Movie, I have ever seen.

    I was at the Fantasy Film Fest in 2004 at the screening of this enormous Masterpiece.
    It was a incredible Atmosphere!

    Till half hour before the ending you hear laugther, chuckles and gasping. But when the climax came, there was dead silence long after the credits were gone.…

    ★★★★

    “I'm one with the Force,
    and the Force is with me.”

    If you follow Star Wars at least a bit, then you'll know what the Main-Story-line here is, despite that you avoided as much information as possible.
    If not, well, the Internet got you covered, but not this Review! ;-)

    The Robot of the Day was a Hoot!
    Mads Mikkelsen's second Blockbuster this Year where he's completely wasted.
    The Action was awesome!
