"Photography is truth. Cinema is truth twenty-four times per second."

My rating system is as coherent as the Rambo movie titles

    Apocalypse Now

    ★★★★★

    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.

The whole thing feels so modern (especially with the new Criterion restoration), Godard was lightyears ahead of the curve.

    Yorgos Lanthimos is someone I group with divisive directors like Lars Von Trier and Gaspar Noé, but he's perhaps the only one that I find highly divisive within his own filmography.

    The Goodfellas of Norwegian Black Metal

Church burnings and murder are amongst the things that this underground movement proclaims.

    This movie was directed by Jonas Åkerlund,…
