    Whiplash

    ★★½

    This film seems highly problematic for me as it seemingly ( in my interpretation) redeems abusive and authoritarian scholarship, toxic relationship behavior as necessary sacrifice for greatness.
    It exploits the "artistic trope" the need for pain and suffering to create great Art and mostly forgets the drive of most out of free will creation: pleasure in your own doing and for Art >steady, long, consistent, healthy practice.
    If it hurts you with lasting damage, it most likely will limit your…

    Ali: Fear Eats the Soul

    ★★

    well… this film has very positive interesting and powerful shots, convincing cinematography.

    He is probably one of the greatest directors of our time, at least for me, this is…

    Enter the Void

    ★★★

    this movie really doesn't value your time..
    Overlong, repetitive, predictable ( It basically tells the entire plot In 2-3 sentences in the beginning), its really that basic. The value of it lies mostly in style and presentation. It bleeds both in spades.

    so... whats left on the table?
    well, its competently made misery-porn, visually (positive) interesting with some nearly perfect scenes, but it ends up shallow and is an great example of exhausting reiteration. Roughly one half of this movie…
