    ★★★★

    Nolan's incredibly structured narrative is what makes this film really stand out. The way the film's story is structured really immerses you into the mind of the main protagonist, who suffers from anterograde amnesia and tries to figure out who raped and killed his wife. The colored scenes go reverse, while B&W sequences are in chronological order. The twist at the end really makes this film a worth watch.


    Its definitely one of his most rewarding films, once when you…

    ★★★★

    Really interesting, heartwarming, funny yet cute documentary about Martin Scorsese's parents being interviewed, telling interesting stories and such. Scorsese's mom possesses such charisma and enthusiasm, its insane. A very neat close look on the life of Italian Americans, would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes Scorsese.


    4/5

  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    ★★★★

    When a statutory rapist is a likable character, only Jack Nicholson can pull that off with his incredibly charismatic and energy-fueled performance.

    The film reminded me a lot of my previous school (there were students who had mental problems, others were deaf), so it brought me some memories. The Baseball Game scene is truly one of the most joyful scenes ever. Louise Fletcher's performance as a lawfully evil nurse, was absolutely phenomenal and she deserved that Oscar! The acting in general in this movie is fantastic!

  • Ladybirds' Christmas

    Ladybirds' Christmas

    ★★★★

    This movie possesses a strange liminal space vibe, its extremely atmospheric. The characters are all very unique and the pacing is perfect. Its a movie that holds a very special place in my heart.

    Honestly, the movie is better than most Estonian films.

  • Alien

    ★★★★

    (my first time watching lol)

    An incredibly immersive lovecraftian space horror film that holds up 40 years later. The production design and the sound effects really make the entire experience a worth while.

    I love how there's a sense of a bigger world out there, while at the same time it feels small. So much effort put into the film and I'll soon definitely watch it again. Highly recommend it.

    The cat was quite epic.

  • No Country for Old Men

    No Country for Old Men

    ★★★★

    A well made Coen brothers film. Javier Bardem's performance is excellent, playing as a psychopathic phantom hitman. The coin toss scene remains as one of the best scenes in cinema history. Tommy Lee Jones was also quite epic.

    What time do you go to bed?
