    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…

    ★★★½

    Silly, sometimes just plain stupid. Cheesy, sometimes just plain yucky. Visually abundant, sometimes just plain ugly. But still rewarding, beautiful and resonating. Some films are just all conflict (and not just in a way that is carefully structured and planned, sometimes film fights against its ideas, the audience resists) until there are glimpses of something truly comforting. During those short moments our other world seems to stop for a while and the visual and emotional reality pulls us in. During…

    Scream 2

    ★★★★

    Certainly not as intense and fascinating as the first one and I can't seem to locate its focus but it still stays enjoyable. Although its humor is duller and the way its thrills are orchestrated is less inventive than with the first part, I still think it kinda hits nail to its head when it talks about trauma and how it depicts Sidney's reactions to recurrence of the "original nightmare".

    That first scene on the theater stage seems to both…

    A Moment of Innocence

    ★★★★★

    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…

  • Mouchette

    Mouchette

    ★★★★★

    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…
