"Photography is truth. Cinema is truth twenty-four times per second."
My rating system is as coherent as the Rambo movie titles
This is why I watch movies.
This is cinema in its best and purest form. Apocalypse Now is perfect in every aspect of filmmaking and somehow is also able to transcend the medium with its soul (the result of a soul-crushing production) and its grandeur.
It serves as an argument both in favor of and against the auteur theory. Clearly not something you can achieve without someone who had a vision like Coppola did, but also definitely not a sustainable…
Life may be sad, but it's always beautiful.
Eclectic, adventurous and just so damn stylish. The music, the editing, the images, all amazing. Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina are wonderful, truly the quintessential French New Wave protagonists. The whole thing feels so modern (especially with the new Criterion restoration), Godard was lightyears ahead of the curve.
The Goodfellas of Norwegian Black Metal
Lords of Chaos follows the story of the Black Circle, a group of young Norwegian who revolutionized the heavy metal scene in the early 1990's, most notably the band Mayhem and its guitarist Euronymous, played by Rory Curkin, as well as Burzum's own Varg Vikernes, played by Emory Cohen who gives a breakout performance. Church burnings and murder are amongst the things that this underground movement proclaims.
This movie was directed by Jonas Åkerlund,…
