I am a mathematician and a dad who tries to watch films in my (few) spare hours.
Back to watch films now. Had to stop because of this but now have some free nights.
Movies watched from March to August :
O Cangaceiro (Lima Barreto) 4/10: Western inspired but the editing is funny and the acting seems taken from a silent movie.
Cairo Station (Youseff Chahine) 7/10: Noir film in the tradition of Fritz Lang.
Everyone Else (Maren Ade) 6/10: Cute dysfunctional romance.
The Postman Always Rings Twice (Bob Rafelson) 6/10: Jessica Lange is great but it ain’t as dark as the Garnett version.
Pale Flower (Masahiro Shinoda) 7/10: It has a huge cult but I did not see anything more than a very well shot Yakuza movie.
Poetry (Lee Chang-Dong) 8/10: Very good. I loved the way that the more into poetry she becomes, the shitier her life gets.
Jerichow (Christian Petzold) 7/10: The postman always rings twice.
