    "You know, life could only be understood backwards, but we have to live it forwards."

    That line is the culminating moment of Adam Elliot's all-encompassing story, and achieved in only 6 minutes! Something so emotionally tangible can only be achieved miraculously. This Aussie fellow, better known for his fantastic feature Mary and Max (2009), is certainly a predecessor of Hertzfeldt's anectodically structured dark humor and intensely relateable moments, and this, so it seems, is the beginning of a wonderful trilogy,…

    Small Deaths


    Another short hit at the 1996 Canes Film Festival, this time being a Jury Prize. Ramsey is so beautiful. Her poetic minimalism is enamouring, but haunting at the same time. She understands the tribulations of a woman of any age and also her progression during her gradual loss of innocence as she stumbles upon a harsh world.

    Before you ask, this is not my first Refn movie. In that way, I can know that:

    - He still likes to dress his crooks with light grey pants and have some of them bald, like if they were still living in Denmark.
    - He still uses an awesome techno soundtrack (with some pop touches that I can forgive) to open his films and to close them. The underground nudist dive bars / seedy joints cannot be omitted, of course.…
