    See How They Run

    ★★★★

    Everything about this is fun: 
    The characters, the sets, the britishness of it all, the meta-humor, the whodunnit itself.
    But I‘d actually be fine with just watching Sam Rockwell and the endlessly charming Saoirse Ronan doing their buddy-cop stuff for a couple of hours.

  • Halloween Kills

    Halloween Kills

    ★½

    This has some of the worst fanfic style plotting and dialogue ever. It‘s insane how writers of these legacy sequels just cannot imagine that anything in the reality of the films has happened in 40 years. 
    Also: Michael is basically Jason now.
    Evil dies tonight…I guess.

    Day of the Dead

    ★★★★½

    I remember considering this the boring one of the dead films as a teenager. Watching it again I realized I had not seen the film for like 15 years....
    It's sooo good. Undoubtedly one of the best zombie films ever made.

    Romero took the story and its implications a bit further and reaches the most interesting point in Day. It's the first time we start to sympathize with the Zombies, the first time we really question which species is more…

  • A Living Dog

    A Living Dog

    A pretty interesting premise that sadly mostly fails because of the film’s gimmick. The lack of dialogue can be a great tool for visual storytelling but when the rules of the world, the characters intention and motivations and actual parts of the plot are unclear, it leads to the audience not really caring about what is happening.

    If the filmmakers who were in attendance and are apparently active on Letterboxd read this:
    All the best for future festival screenings. You guys seemed nice. This is just my honest opinion. ;)
