13 Minutes

Fantastic

(Edit) 06/10/2020

This is a serious and very good film.

It can be a bit "gory" sometimes but, it's certainly a "must see" piece.

Gerontophilia

A load of utter rubbish

(Edit) 21/04/2020

Don't waste your time with this. It's a poor, cheap and idiotic production. The idea is stupid, the cast is of amateurs and it adds nothing to your intelligence.

Notes on a Scandal

Absolutely brilliant

(Edit) 16/03/2019

Great performance of such a first-class cast.

Excellent film showing the reality of the wife stuck in a middle-class marriage and being pulled by a 15-year pupil.

Indochine

A marvellous film

(Edit) 24/01/2019

One of the best films I've ever seen and, needless to say that, Catherine Deneuve's performance is one of her best.

The film clearly depicts the hypocrisy of the French colonialist mentalist of the time, the struggle of the local Indochinese and the concern of the authorities with the spread of communism.

Definitely worth watching if you have an interest in 20th century history.

Under the Shadow

A total load of utter rubbish

(Edit) 02/10/2018

I've never seen anything as bad as this.

The films starts well but ends in incomprehensible way.

It's a total waste of time.

The Golden Dream

I didn't like it

(Edit) 25/07/2018

I expected a lot more. I found the film unnecessarily depressed and lifeless. On occasions, I couldn't establish if location was Guatemala, Mexico or, in the end, even the USA.

Definitely not for me.

Certain Women

A total load of rubbish

(Edit) 15/06/2018

To be fair, I tried to watch this for about an hour. After that, all I could do was to feel sorry for myself for having wasted 60 minutes of my life. I found impossible to follow and understand the whole thing. To make matters worse, the film is dark, incoherent and inconclusive. A real downer as I expected so much from Kristen Stewart.
