Movie Thoughts

Candyman – believable, good storyline. Nothing extraordinary.

Under the skin – visually stunning but hard to shallow.

Inside – nonstop brutality, blood and gore. Brilliant.

The face of another – good existential film that gives you food for thought.

Spellbound – who knew that spelling competitions could be so exciting?

Mouth to mouth – coming of age within a hippie cult.

Brothers Bloom – more Wes Anderson than Rian Johnson.

Detour – one of the first film noir, short and memorable.

Dear Zachary, a letter – heart-breaking documentary, better than fiction. A must see.

The colour of pomegranades – visually stunning, no comments. 

Frank – my kind of movie, dark humour with an oddball character.

Calvary – dark but human, tapping into a sensitive subjective.

The beat my heart skipped – interesting character study.

Rush – lovely story and characters.

X-Men: Days of future past – weak script with one great scene.

The brood – early Cronenberg with a great concept, as always.

Imaginary Letter One

I envy their happiness, their pairing. The time they spend together. I envy the fact that they have each other.

I see them every day and I dislike the thought of them. They come in together, they leave together. They do nothing to annoy me but their existence, the thought of them, is enough to turn my stomach. They represent what I despise and try to avoid. Lack of personal space, boredom, lack of independence and settling down. I cringe with the sight of them and I want to smash my glass against their faces. I laugh when I remember their words of freedom, keeping appearances and never sleeping where you eat. Where is all that then? You represent all that I despise. You are all hypocrites.

I hate your happiness, your pairing. The time you spend together. I hate the fact that you have each other, someone, anyone.
