    Wild at Heart

    ★★★★★

    I haven't had this refreshing film after a film since I rewatched Inherent Vice last year when news where showing nothing but shit. It's like feeling cold or otherwise dirty and going to warm sauna after a hard day and then coming out, taking something to drink and feel like world makes sense even if it is only for few seconds until it starts to wear off. This is for me the only way to describe Wild at Heart -…

    It's just so absurd feeling to listen all day long the terrifying news from ignorance towards creeping climate change that decides the fate of humanity and wonder about one's mortality and then stumble upon a film that's been on your watch list for years and simply stare at it in awe. Nomad is a revelation, absurd and hard to put into words, but so goddamn beautiful. At points it is pure cinematic bliss and aesthetic pleasure, at points a single…

    ★★★★½

    True pioneering work. Balances really well the celebration and the rebellion, going also through outside perspectives but never making the most important part of the film. I liked the way the film also brings together some history, especially told by elder gay men whose testimonies remind us that we exist despite the attempts to erase us from history. I wish we could have seen more black queer faces and stories and emotions but considering that the pioneering status of people…

    Burying the Ex

    First misstep for Dante that I've seen (hopefully his only one). I've always been impressed with Dante's approach to location, his sly humor, and his depiction of phenomenons of capitalist culture that slowly grow into uncontrollable chaos through the lens of a pop culture aficionado. His films are usually both love songs for cinema and satires of the modern world filled with color but this feels really dry as if it was made by someone else.

    A Moment of Innocence

    ★★★★★

    After watching this film, I realized I'm never going to be film critic or scholar. This beautiful feeling that I'm feeling cannot be put to words. I've realized that the greatest films are something about what you can write and write, try to open them and their beauty, try to ease your burden and wonderment but you simply can't put them to words. I've loved film theory but after a film like this, I can't help but to pretty much…

    There's a song that goes "How can you tell me, that you're lonely". The power that this song has on me, has also Bresson's piece on Mouchette (but on very different way and perhaps on very different level as well).

    We have seen many tears on the screen but have they ever been so pure and beautiful? She isn't martyr even though she shines similar light. When I think about "martyr", something unclean comes to my mind. I don't know…
