    High and Low

    ★★★★★

    When an executive of a shoe company is extorted into paying ransom for the kipnapped son of his driver. He is forced to chose between his dream to own a majority shareholding of the company, or to pay the ransom to save the boy but be put into a huge debt and lose his job, his house and his lifelong dream.

    Let me first start this by saying, happy birthday Toshiro Mifune (1920 - 1997) Who would have been 101…

  • Le Cercle Rouge

    Le Cercle Rouge

    ★★★★½

    Directed by Jean-Piere Melville and featuring french superstar Alain Delon, Le Cercle Rouge is a jaw dropping masterpiece in the crime thriller genre and easily one of the greatest films to ever come out of France. Drawing inspiration from films like Dassin's 'Rififi' (1955) and Godard's 'Breathless' (1960), Le Cercle Rouge is a masterclass in writing, design and storytelling.

    Melville purpusefully takes it time setting things up before eventually moving into it's main attraction in the second half. But i…

    The Evil Dead

    ★★½

    This wasn't super bad or anything, and yes it's great how much had been accomplished on such a tiny budget, it just didn't do much for me. I'll be honest except for a few excellent 60's and 70's classics, horror has never been a genre i much enjoyed. So i'll won't hold that against The Evil Dead, i was just kinda hoping this would turn out to be one of those classics but from the 80's. For many other people…

    Another strong yet depressing film from Farhadi. The setting and editing is really good, you can just feel the struggle and desperation in some of the characters. Excellent stuff, I'm definitely also looking forward to Farhadi's recent new film A Hero.

    ★★★★½

    Finally the wait is over..

    I will probably be seen as bias (and maybe i am) cause i'm a big fan of the original Frank Herbert novel, which i've read 3 times in the past six years or so plus also listened to the amazing audiobook. But really, what an incredible powerful film Dune (part one) has become. I was honestly quite worried as it is a difficult story to film. Which has allready been tried in the past (to…

    Z

    ★★★★½

    This was absolutely incredible, hands down the best political conspiracy thriller I've ever seen. The writing is beyond excellent and probably the best aspect of the film. Also the entire film looks and feels very real and authentic. I love how real every character comes across in this film and i love how good every scene looks aesthetically. The filming locations are great and i really enjoyed the overall style of Z. There's attention too every little detail, and every…
