    Sorry We Missed You

    Loach gonna Loach.

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    ★★★★½

    Seeing the whole venue reaching to the screen and trying to change/stop things from happening as if we’re part of the show is, IMO, one of the best feelings in the world. Major work by Bong that succeeds to be unhinged, poignant and extremely funny.

  • A Hidden Life

    A Hidden Life

    ★★★★

    I still don’t know how Malick keeps surprising with his sick compositions. Conventional but still a great 3rd place holder in the podium of the latest Malick era (after TToL & StS)

  • Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★★

    GOD! The M word right here.
    More later but Celine Sciamma made a film that’ll be hard to beat. Best of the decade material and that’s no hyperbole 🔥

  • Little Joe

    Little Joe

    ★★★★

    Still need to sleep on Hausner’s latest or as Amazing Amy used to say “give it the night” but this is pretty much a creepy/crazy film that will please the Lanthimos fans and the man himself who’s in the jury this year. That score, ah..

  • Frankie

    Frankie

    ★★★½

    We spend a day with Frankie and the people she loves where they all try to cope with an inevitable loss. Beautiful, tender but lacking the Sachs touch of absolute greatness. Huppert is the Lord of understatement but this is Tomei’s finest work in years!

  • Two Days, One Night

    Two Days, One Night

    ★★★★★

    Another viewing of TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT and this time I couldn’t stop the tears through the whole thing. Literally. What a film!

    The word for this is lazy.

    The sexual tension here is arresting !
