What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film I Love You, I Kill You

    A film perfectly inscribed in Germany's Federal Republic great cinema of the 60s and 70s, the one that from Fassbinder to Kluge redefined the imagery of European cinema, fulfilling a pact of "accounts adjust" with the past, looking at their contemporaneous with the greatest cutting irony, extended to an exhilarating self-reflective structure. It's reduced, however, by a weak dispersive dramaturgical obligation.
