  • Aftersun

    Aftersun

    ★★★★★

    Sophie: Don't you ever feel like... you've just done a whole amazing day and then you come home and feel tired and down and... it feels like your organs don't work, they're just tired, and everything is tired. Like you're sinking. I don't know, it's weird.

    As I try to find words describing not only Aftersun, but my feelings as well after witnessing this film, all I can think of is 'personal' and 'humane', like it was hitting home.

  • Holy Spider

    Holy Spider

    ★★★½

    With everything that's happened in Iran, and is still happening, there was no better time for this film to be released and project Iranian society and its corruption.

    Holy Spider (Ankabut-e moqaddas عنکبوت مقدس ) is based on a true event about serial killer Saeed Hanaei, who believed to accomplish the Jihad by eliminating sex workers in the city of Mashhad, also known as the Place of martyrdom, and an important location for religious pilgrimage. Enough indication to prove that…

    White Noise

    ★★★½

    Jack: But out of some persistent sense of large-scale ruin, we keep inventing hope.

    White Noise is so weird... It's like it was divided into two parts: the one before and during the chemical incident, and the one after the event, and being two different movies.

    Its introduction is eccentric. You get a first taste of the Woody Allen-esque dialogues in which everybody talks nonstop, to a point where no one is listening the others. Goofy and 'disconnected from reality'…

    Black Dynamite

    ★★★½

    Black Dynamite: Your knowledge of scientific biological transmogrification is only outmatched by your zest for kung-fu treachery!

    It's hard not to begin your intro by saying that Black Dynamite is an homage to the Blaxploitation era, because one, I just did, and two, it really excels at it.

    I'm a sucker for movies trying to capture a certain period or time in a technical aspect. That's one element I love in Black Dynamite. DP Shawn Maurer mimics perfectly the quality…

    Dune

    ★★★★★

    Jamis: The mystery of life isn't a problem to solve, but a reality to experience. A process that cannot be understood by stopping it. We must move with the flow of the process. We must join it. We must flow with it.

    As someone who deeply loves Frank Herbert's book Dune, I couldn't help but get excited for witnessing its adaptation from my favorite director Denis Villeneuve. My expectations were high, very high, and only that man could ever surpass…

    Lilya 4-ever

    ★★★★

    Lilja: I'm not your property. Think you can buy me? You can't buy me. You can't buy my heart and soul.

    The whole story is a descent of Lilja to hell; even if we, the viewer, understand the reality of things (as well as Volodya, a kid who is far too mature for his age), she sees every time a deliverance in her life. When we see the synopsis, we all quite guess that Lilja will end up in prostitution,…
