    Surviving You, Always

    ★★

    a good bit too experimental for my taste, at times the film felt like an art installation in a museum.
    in general i liked the way the subtitles pushed the story, the end with the last picture is what made me overthink my opinion about the film a bit. the silence that accompanied the end of the story really hit hard.

    Story is key. 

    and i think the writer of this uninspired film must have forgotten his under his doormat

  • I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★

    Stunning visuals, the style (and I don't just mean the experimental 4-3 aspect ratio) is outstanding. colors and composition is executed in perfection here.
    The storyline, however does unfold in an interesting and slow way. Which is not a bad thing, I had to smile a lot about the dirst scene being 20 minutes long. I really liked that experimental behaviour.
    What I really don't like is that the final third of the film really appeard random to me and…

    ★★★½

    Just a nice film to watch. Interesting cast combo, it worked out pretty nicely.
    The 'obstacles' he has to overcome aren't really a big deal though, the film lacked a certain thrill in my opinion.
    Very entertaining though, so that's what makes it 3.5 stars.

    „two is great, but three is a crowd.“

    the best worst film i‘ve seen yet. every time i watch it i notice new little details.

  • The Kissing Booth 2

    The Kissing Booth 2

    ★★½

    i think you know what kind of film this is beforehand and you know that there is gonna be a lot of foreseeable events and so on - having said that, and knowing that, it‘s a pretty decent film for an evening you don‘t want to think a lot on.

    uninspired story and characters.

    ★★½

    nostalgic and very cringe

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    "you know what plan never fails?
    no plan at all."

    a film that starts dialogue with the word "shit" can't be a bad one (prove me wrong).
    to start, i love that a film outside of america or europe is able to develop such a big audience.

    i've never seen a piece like this before. i don't know if i'm just petrified by the sheer depth this film seems to contain, but this is my review just after watching PARASITE.…

  • Dangerous Lies

    Dangerous Lies

    ★★★½

    very creepy.
    the experimental camera work reminds me a bit of the wave the nouvelle vague initiated. a slightly different approach to being a bit different than other films. the story is unfolding nicely, very solid film.

    3.5/5

  • The Graduate

    The Graduate

    ★★★★½

    "What are you doing, Ben?"
    - "I would say that I'm just drifting in the pool."

    absurd. brilliant. ironic.

    full of metaphors, sad humoristic elements;

    but without any honour or hope.

    the story is immersive from the beginning. the camera work is experimental and on point.

    4.5/5
