    "I'm an eye. A mechanical eye. I, the machine, show you a world the way only I can see it..."
    (Dziga Vertov)

    Hi everybody, in 1929 the world economic crisis may have ruled the world, but not the revolutionary filmmaker Dziga Vertov, whose highly experimental portrait of Moscow is in retrospect clearly decades ahead of its time.

    We have watched thousands of movies and found our favorite…

    "The downfall of "The American Dream" as Oscar Bait?!"
    (Two Cineasts)

    Hi everybody, successful biographies have (understandably) always the potential to perform well on screen and are therefore very interesting to adapt, as they mostly offer elaborate and complex figures. The story of "Hillbilly Elegy" also exudes incredible emotional potential and the cast of exceptionally gifted actresses like Amy Adams and Glenn seems promising. But, what's the point in having…

    "The German equivalente to the Lumière Brothers."
    (The Two Cineasts)

    Today: If Anything Happens I Love You

    Hi everybody, this film may be short, but within just devastating 12 minutes of an emotional, heartbreaking story I pretty much felt empty and broken.

Despite the fact of…

    ★★★★★

    "When I first was writing the script I thought it was about loneliness. What I learned while writing the script is this was about a man who suffered from the pathology of loneliness, he wasn't only by nature he was lonely as a defense mechanism and he reinforced his own loneliness by his own behavior and the pathology grew until it became malignant and violent."
    (Screenwriter Paul Schrader)

    "But now I'm not so sure I believe in beginnings and endings. There are days that define your story beyond your life. Like the day they arrived."

    A SHAME TO GIVE AN EXPRESSION OF THIS JOURNY IN SUCH A TRIVIAL WAY LIKE A RATINGSYSTEM


    (Had to add this to the finished review because it felt right) I need to say before the review starts like the title says, it's hard to talk about this experience…
