    Adam's Apples

    ★★★★

    “Adam´s Apples” is my second Anders Thomas Jensen film after “The Green Butchers”, and it´s definitely noticeable that those two movies have the same director. Not only do they share several actors (Mads Mikkelsen never disappoints), they also both feature bizarre characters, absurd situations, and humor so black you almost can´t recognize it as such.

    Ah, “Alien”. It might be strange to call a disturbing horror movie a comfort film, but that´s exactly what “Alien” is to me. No matter how often I´ve seen it, with every rewatch I love it a bit more. 40 years after its release, it remains the benchmark for the space horror genre and a masterclass in almost every aspect of filmmaking, may it be direction, screenplay, worldbuilding, cinematography, editing, set design, creature design, special effects, sound…
