8 posts from 07 to 29 September 2019.

  • Parasite

    A masterful story, breaking the ice with black comedy, but leading to chilling societal commentary.

  • A Herdade

    The fictional biography of Ricardo Salgado, by way of Os Maias. Direct political answer to Raiva. Visually, it’s almost 3 hours of people chain smoking and gobbling litters of whisky.

  • Ad Astra

    Mad Max, Gravity, Space Cowboys (Donald Sutherland even!) and Moon stuffed in a blender.

  • Elizabeth Harvest

    An old-school sci-fi horror B-movie, which turns out to be an adaptation of Bluebeard. The wetware Ex Machina.

  • The Neon Demon

    Refn does Mullholland Drive, replacing the noir references by body horror, and with a discernible plot. Random cameos by Keanu Reeves too, for some reason. Special thanks to Alejandro Jodorowski…

  • Little Miss Sunshine

    The core point is kinda taken away when you find out the little girl wore a fat suit during the film. That’s American cinema for you!

  • Das Boot

    Alaaaarm! One of the greatest epic films, stands besides Seven Samurai and Saving Private Ryan as an eerie depiction of war.

  • The Fog

    Carpenter’s followup to Halloween. The music is almost the same.
