seventy six year old Udo Kier as the “Liberace of Sandusky”, dancing to Robyn in a gay bar, is the hero we need in 2021

What is there left to say about this film... Daniel Day-Lewis and his portrayal of Daniel Plainview is in my honest opinion the best acting I have ever seen in my life. There is nothing that comes close to it. Every scene, every conversation with Daniel Plainview is utterly captivating. You can't help but to keep staring into those mad, raging eyes. The cinematography of this film is so unfathomably beautiful that words cannot describe it properly. I can't help…

A Love Song

A Love Song


The antidote to the last movie I watched, which was Blonde. A Love Song is a simple, sweet, quiet and warm little film, so pleasant and easy to watch. Spearheaded by the perfectly lovely and underrated Dale Dickey, who is so authentic and glorious, probably one of my favourite actresses ever I reckon, love her in everything and it’s nice to see her taking the lead here and doing so well. More lead roles for her please and thank you.

"Picture a dream and dare to live in it."

A film that wears its low budget on its sleeve, but compensates for it with striking imagery and earnest performances. And the music is banging.




gorgeous, powerful, cathartic, romantic, enthralling, brilliant, otherworldly. a quiet and beautiful storm that rages on while the rest of the world will most likely have it’s eyes fixated on other films, not needing anyone’s attention or love or approval. the most profound superhero portrayed on film since donnie darko

why can’t i just be myself? why isn’t that possible?

you know that moment when you’re watching a film and then boom the credits start to roll and you can tell in that moment that you’ve just watched something that is going to stay with you for quite some time? yeah this film just did that for me i’m pretty astounded right now
