    PlayTime

    ★★★★★

    Playtime is the living example that a movie can be both funny and aesthetically gorgeous. Is a film that truly speaks by pictures and environmental juxtapositions.
    I loved every second of it. I laughed during every second of it. It was so simple and pristine, yet so layered and unexpected.
    Sometimes the slapstick bits got me after a few seconds, because some are so subtle that you won’t even notice them right away.

    This was my first Tati. I must say it was a marvelous start. Now I want more!

    Come and See

    ★★★★★

    Come and See was an amazing achievement not only for soviet cinema, but for industry itself.
    The usage of stadycam supported by zoom lenses makes the spectator delve into the atrocities of war and the thin line between what is right and what is wrong.

    Devastating, ironical, very cynical, but the overall experience didn't really make me feel completely engaged.

    I know I should not focus on single details, but that crashing scene...

    Seven Samurai

    ★★★★½

    Finally got the chance to see this movie. It was a challenge to find a copy. After several months of waiting, I've managed to get an italian blu-ray edition of this.

    I can confirm what almost every cinephile said about Kurosawa's Seven Samurai. It is a brilliant movie, with a mastery of shadows, lights and camera works extremely captivating for its years.
