What are people saying?

  • Samuel T.'s rating of the film Rocker

    Obsessed with Neue Münchner Gruppe and all of it's hot peripheries. Turns out this one's a coming of age story with a wholesome dose of humor and comradery, albeit, it's fair share of violence and, ultimately, displacement. It's shocking, gleaming with grease, blood, and motor oil, and morbidly adorable. Completely surprised. This infatuation is deep.

  • Ciprian David's rating of the film Rocker

    Ironically i kept wanting to take screenshots of Mark in the beginning, then realized he is the main character, not just a strong one. Rocker felt very similar to Roland Kilck's Deadlock: The ubiquitous despair was here somehow created between editing, gazes, dialogues and the counterpoint between iconic images and the status quo.
