    Burning

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I think the key to unlock the mysteries of Burning is the ‘tangerine peel’ scene, which is described as something that sucks “the reality from everything around you” by the narrator of Haruki Murakami's ‘Barn Burning’ (the short story it's based upon).

    The viewer is often left to question the reality of what does or does not happen on the screen, which is what any good thriller should do.

    But, at two and a half hours, the film is sparse…

  • The House That Jack Built

    The House That Jack Built

    ★★★½

    Hit the road, Jack.

    Indeed.

    Also, von Trier's most consistently thorough (and, dare I say, most focused?) work since Dogville.

    Don't really know what to make of that epilogue, though.

  • Collateral Beauty

    Collateral Beauty

    ½

    Easily one of the most offensive, artificial and just plain stupid films about grief Hollywood has ever spat out.

    The ending is just disrespectful.

  • Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé

    Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé

    ★★★★

    • Documentary → 3½ stars.

    • Concert → 5 stars, naturellement; an epic showcase of Beyoncé's artistic prowess and her status as the most forward-thinking pop performer today + it also gave us the single best live album in recent memory.

    • 10 stars for ‘Mi Gente.’
