Re: Hello all! :)

It's my ultimate database for film, and that means more than I can possibly convey in a few descriptive sentences. I also love the short form film reviews, and the fact that you cannot comment on them. It gives the whole thing a semi-private appearance. I mean, I love getting stars as a sort of thum...

Re: Die Sieger/The Invincibles (Graf, 1994)

real great review! and definitely an argument to dig into Graf, whose only film I saw was "Der Felsen" some 20 years ago. but I remembered it and kept referring to it.

Re: Worst Film of 2018?

I couldn't even finish Under the Silver Lake , and I finish pretty much everything. I had such high hopes. How could I possibly dislike something Andrew Garfield is in? Another waste of my time was Mandy . I don't know who the target audience is but it certainly isn't me. Besides these 2 recent wat...

Re: Cannes reviews

Hey, unfortunately I won't make it to any of these. I had The Eyes of Orson Wells on my calender for Sunday morning, but sometimes sleep is more important than cinema, unbelievable as that may sound to many of us... So far my favorite film of the festival (Girls of the Sun) got trashed by critics li...

Cannes reviews

I have some reviews for Cannes 2018 films on my profile, if anybody cares. Strangely enough, until now, they all concern a love story that plays out over decades.
