    Wild at Heart

    ★★★★★

    I haven't had this refreshing film after a film since I rewatched Inherent Vice last year when news where showing nothing but shit. It's like feeling cold or otherwise dirty and going to warm sauna after a hard day and then coming out, taking something to drink and feel like world makes sense even if it is only for few seconds until it starts to wear off. This is for me the only way to describe Wild at Heart -…

    ★★★★★

    It's just so absurd feeling to listen all day long the terrifying news from ignorance towards creeping climate change that decides the fate of humanity and wonder about one's mortality and then stumble upon a film that's been on your watch list for years and simply stare at it in awe. Nomad is a revelation, absurd and hard to put into words, but so goddamn beautiful. At points it is pure cinematic bliss and aesthetic pleasure, at points a single…

    3000 Nights

    Palestinian master Mai Masri's first and only fictional feature film so far takes her to familiar grounds that she has explored as a documentarian: solidarity, imprisonment, and protest. The urgent call can be heard "free all political prisoners!" but at the same time, the film is a reminder of women who have to go through the same as men.

    She doesn't hold back her anger and sorrow and as usual for her films, cinema becomes a way to record the…

    One of the many portraits of ruthless journalists but Sass' film also explores solidarity between women who are at the different strata of society yet connected by their gendered experience. It's interesting how Sass makes her protagonist face the ethical dilemmas of exploiting a young woman for her newspaper story. It's not the woman's condition per se that makes Ewa reconsider her power but it's what ultimately leads them to bond - an older woman showing the younger how to…

    ★★★★★

    After watching this film, I realized I'm never going to be film critic or scholar. This beautiful feeling that I'm feeling cannot be put to words. I've realized that the greatest films are something about what you can write and write, try to open them and their beauty, try to ease your burden and wonderment but you simply can't put them to words. I've loved film theory but after a film like this, I can't help but to pretty much…

    ★★★★★

    There's a song that goes "How can you tell me, that you're lonely". The power that this song has on me, has also Bresson's piece on Mouchette (but on very different way and perhaps on very different level as well).

    We have seen many tears on the screen but have they ever been so pure and beautiful? She isn't martyr even though she shines similar light. When I think about "martyr", something unclean comes to my mind. I don't know…
