  • Suspiria

    Suspiria

    ★★★★

    This was probably my most anticipated film of the year (right after that follow Strickland’s In Fabric and McPhail’s Anna and the Apocalypse; I still have to see both) and I actually don’t know where to start here. The first thing I want to mention is that I was glad I saw it on the big screen (a 2 hour train ride aside) and in the original version!

    There is quite a lot to be discussed but I’ll keep it…

  • Paris, Texas

    Paris, Texas

    ★★★★★

    This is one of the best films I’ve seen in my life. From the opening shot panning over the deserted Texan landscape accompanied by the guitar sounds from Ry Cooder’s ethereally beautiful soundtrack I knew this film would be something special. And it turned out I wouldn’t be wrong with my notion. This film is perfectly shot, perfectly paced, perfectly scored, perfectly written and the characters are perfectly portrayed by the cast. I regard Harry Dean Stanton as one of…

    A Fistful of Dollars

    ★★

    All right, I've got the feeling that I need to justify my low rating for this one since I know some people that are following me are major Leone/Eastwood/western fans.

    First of all, I'm not very experienced at all with the western genre, be it classic Jon Wayne films or the Spaghetti sub-genre. However, I've seen a few neo-westerns and loved almost all of them (Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight, Bone Tomahawk and Bacurau to mention the ones popping into…

  • A Bay of Blood

    A Bay of Blood

    ★★★

    The last 15 minutes (especially the last 2) definitely elevated A Bay of Blood. I had a hard time getting into the film, I wasn't very invested during the first half of the film (I was quite confused to be frank, but I guess the English dub didn't really help making anything clearer).
    The fun performances, mesmerizing make-up effects and a cool score surely made me like this film as a whole. If I ever decide to rewatch it I will watch it within one sitting (and not fall asleep on a 84 minute film every night three days in a row).

  • Under the Skin

    Under the Skin

    ★★★★

    A fascinating film. Scarlett Johannsson gives an outstanding performance as an alien creature seducing Scotsmen (probably my favourite of hers besides Her). The visuals and metaphors of Under the Skin are overwhelming and not easy to decipher upon the first viewing. I didn’t expect it to be as quiet as it was but this element definitely worked in favour of the film primarily focusing on the breathtaking visuals. The accompanying score is wonderfully eerie and contributes to the positively uncomfortable…
