    The House That Jack Built

    ★★★★

    It’s a relief to see Lars Von Trier returned (partly) to his roots after his successful attempt of sensation by hours of unsimulated sex. A voyage to the stages of art, creation and mental illness; a literal descent into the hell. Bold, self-indulged, disturbingly unforgettable.
    The Good: Story has its laziness, but the storytelling is absolutely flawless. Follows the footsteps of Godard to include all sorts of art in a single movie. Clever metaphores & references. Clever-er answers to his haters. 
    The Bad: Repetitive second art
    The Ugly: Hunting scene
    Sam Score:8/10

  • The Dead Don't Die

    The Dead Don't Die

    ★★★

    Who is the undead here, zombies, idiosyncratic characters or the audience? Hard to answer. A satirical touch on modern addictions and a political stand over society. Impossible not to enjoy. Sadly, he copies a lot from Lynch, loses his own signature and cannot proceed in the story.
    The Good: Tilda Swinton’s extremely satisfying character design 
    The Bad: Too short. The end feels like the beginning of second act. Jarmusch should have know we always want more of him. 
    The Ugly: The presence of Selena Gomez and her shorts 
    SamScore: 7/10

    Under the Silver Lake

    ★★★½

    Myths, drugs & rock’n roll. A modern remake of Holy Mountain...or simply a Mulhullond Dr. written by an American teen. Nicely shot hipster noir that gets more awkward each second. Completely unpredictable yet surprisingly organised and planned. Already a cult.
    The Good: can work as a documentary for all conspiracy theories, LA myths and bedtime stories + nice color use + that “mastermind behind the entire pop-culture” scene + music 
    The Bad: Ultra cheap acting
    The Ugly: Extremely sexist
    SamScore: 7/10

  • The Favourite

    The Favourite

    ★★★½

    Smart, royal, wicked and dark. Marvelous costume and stage design. Yet, not bizarre enough to satisfy Yorgos’ die-hard fans. Emma Stone is proved to be no fit for medieval times
    Good: Olivia Colman!
    Bad: Soundtrack+Rest of the cast 
    Ugly: Fisheye shots
    SamScore: 7.5/10
