    The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie

    ★★★★

    To say this film was strange would be an understatement; there's experimenting with surrealism and then there's whatever it is Buñuel's doing, confusing the hell out of your audience to a degree where you just give up on the plot. A lot of actions and events take place, but nothing actually happens. Midway through watching this film I realised that Christopher Nolan wasn't actually the first person to make Inception and that it was indeed Luis Buñuel. Send Leonardo DiCaprio,…

    ★★★½

    Although I was initially skeptical of the film's concept, 'I'm Your Man' manages to execute it's Sci-Fi/Romance narrative in a highly realistic manner which is much more than I can say for any other films that share it's genre. The cinematography is nothing short of incredible, particularly the establishing shots of Berlin which compliment the various interior set pieces, all of which share a simple yet elegant design that help give off a futuristic tone, something which the film does…
