    A new beginning, a “new start” is what the Yi family is looking for as they move on from the West Coast to a rural city in Arkansas to pursue the American Dream. Jacob (Steven Yeun) has bought for his wife Monica (Han Ye-ri) and his two children David and Anne (newcomers Alan Kim and Noel Kate Cho) a mobile home and fifty acres of land with the intention of starting a farming activity. But things do not go as…

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    Si potrebbe discutere tranquillamente per ore del nuovo film di Charlie Kaufman, cercando di analizzare i vari simbolismi, aggiunti e non, rispetto al libro di Ian Reid. Ma l’aspetto che mi colpisce di più ad ogni visione è la performance di Jessie Buckley. Chiunque mi conosca o abbia parlato di cinema con me, saprà quanto stravedo per la giovane attrice irlandese, la cui brillante carriera è soltanto all’inizio ma conta già notevoli performance sotto il suo nome. La versatilità che…

    Mr. Bachmann and His Class

    ★★★★

    FULL REVIEW FOR CLAPPER:

    Over the course of her career Maria Speth has always put her focus on new generations, young people and how they are influenced. Mr Bachmann and His Class is the fifth feature (and second documentary) from the German author. The documentary follows a class of teenagers throughout a semester and the extravagant figure of Mr. Bachmann, a teacher who takes his job to heart and does his best to help and shape the young minds of…

    FULL REVIEW FOR CLAPPER

    In 1937, Jewish-American teacher Abel Meeropol wrote the poem “Bitter Fruit”, a powerful and essential piece of writing in which the writer expresses his horror on lynchings. Essential since it was published right after Senate did not pass a bill against the lynching of African-Americans. Powerful because of the strong words and message the writer wanted to spread. The poem was then set to music by Meeropol himself, changing the title into “Strange Fruit”. A few…

    ★★★★★

    ***not really a 5/5 but more a 3.5/5; this movie though deserves some love, it’s so freaking weird and there are so many cats, and they fly and even lick nipples!***

    No. 7 Cherry Lane is one of the weirdest movie i’ve seen; Yonfan’s slow pace may turn someone off, who am i kidding? This is sooooo slow and the characters keep moving in slow-motion. 
    But hell yeah i was very entertained by it; there are so many pointless characters…

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★½

    Cannes 2019 #11
    Portrait de la jeune fille en feu tells the story of a young painter, Marianne (Noémie Merlant), who is commissioned to portrait a young lady from a wealthy family, Héloïse (Adèle Haenel), to be used as a marriage proposal to a wealthy man from Milan.
    Héloïse has already refused to sit before for portraits, so Marianne has to spy her and act as a lady’s maid.

    The first half of the movie is very slow (not boring!)…
