  • Inner Wars

    Inner Wars

    A documentary about female soldiers of the Ukranian war, without showing the war itself too much, but frighteningly revealing the seriousness of the situation.

  • Manchester by the Sea

    Manchester by the Sea

    ★★★★½

    If you (like me) thought, Manchester by the Sea must be situated in Britain, the unstable appearing house contruction and the cult-like habit of using short words with an f in every possible gap of a sentence will easily correct you within the first few minutes.

    ★★★★★

    For some reason I disdained this movie for a long time, presumably because I distrusted all those praises. Today, after the fourth or fifth watch of The Shawshank Redemption, I happily concede, that it fully deserves the praises.

It certainly must be the best prison drama.

    Baby Driver

    ★★★½

    First of all, it was fun to watch Baby Driver. The movie has it's own style and the way, how musical pieces are implemented, is very unique.
    Weak points are the clichéd bog-standard storyline and the car chase scenes. Those action scenes appear very hectic caused by numerous annoying cuts. For a movie, that mainly deals with the work of a getaway driver, this must be critical. So in the end, it's nothing more than a okay blockbuster, that cannot stick with the much more mature Drive.
