(4.1 / 5)

 

A delightful dip into the life of a renowned art dealer complete with twist à la Unusual Suspect.
Plus, and this is a very big plus, it stars Geoffrey Rush. Speaking of whom, I just watched The Book Thief, a very nice little Happy-go-lucky fim; I mean as Happy-go-lucky as a movie can be that’s set during WWII in Nazi Germany.

(3.6 / 5)

 

A slow burning fantasy Hungarian Movie, with fun catchy Japanese tunes, as you can already tell with the title and that discription; very topsy-turvy.

 

 

Mother!Mother!

(4 / 5)

 

This movie normally would not be my cup of tea but it really was fanstastic. The newest flick from the director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan/Requiem for a Dream) Featuring religious and biblical undertones, and even taking on an almost pyschotic driving force; the cinematography is still much too enthralling not to get sucked in.

(3.7 / 5)

 

A spanish who done it thriller, that keeps you guessing until the final moments.
I personally didn’t love this movie but I still think it is worth mentioning. It’s a bit Stephen Kingesque but without the Stephen King.

 

incendiesIncendies

(4.3 / 5)

 

Nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, this movie is simply riveting. A lesser known gem from the star director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival/Blade Runner 2049) Incendies definitely keeps the fire burning.

#Fantastisch
One of the hardest things, I think, in movie-making is to truthfully capture and portray human emotions. This movie does that masterfully. A strained father-daughter relationship that never really lets up, but the characters still find a way to accept each other; utterly comical faults and all.

Buffalo 66Buffalo ’66

(4.5 / 5)

 

You know how in Catcher in the Rye you find the personnage almost unsettling but you can’t help but like him anyway, because in some way you can see a bit of yourself amid their wierd quirks. This is how you feel about Vincent Gallo’s personna in Buffalo 66. An indie cult classic.

 

Perfetti sconosciutiPerfetti sconosciuti (Perfect Strangers)

(4 / 5)

 

The how well do you know your friends theme, but in a very contemporary manner. A group of friends decide to have a bit of fun with their phones during a group dinner, and the surprises unfold as the messages start rolling in. Another noteworthy movie along the same lines but more sci-fi is “Coherence”.

The Man From EarthMan From Earth

(4.2 / 5)

 

A pretty low budget science-fiction “huis clos” that is very long and drawn out, but oh so though provoking and well scripted.

 

 

 

Like Father Like SonLike Father, Like Son

(3.8 / 5)

 

A very poignant Japanese film. A nature vs nurture theme, where a father is faced with a choice upon learning that his son was switched at birth, and his biological son has grown up all along with another family.
