I really liked it, though Ayouch didn't impress me much in his other movie, Whatever Lola wants, that one was a good surprise. Very much influenced by De Sica's work with non professional children actors, and more specifically his film Sciuscia. A film that follows the life of the glue-sniffing kids working in the streets. It isn't as tragic as the Italian Neo-Realist predecessor's works, as this one has a hint more of innocent poetry.

I don't think I can say it's a "great" movie that marked me deeply, still it is very solid film.

Btw, did I tell you I watched Agora? Anyhow, it's totally forgettable, just in case I didn't. Be prepared.

Jean Renoir's the Rules Of the Game here. Basically, if you thought it was impossible for pre-war mainland European cinema to be as witty and funny as thought-provoking and emotional, think again. Absolutely delightful film this, and one that could possibly have worked its way onto my favourites list.

Yup my friend told me.
don't know what happened to Amenabar... I just don't want to watch it, so I wouldn't get disappointed.

Le Placard (The Closet)



Good. Not great, not bad. Worth a watch, but not high-priority.

Not a film technically speaking, but...


The definitive dramatisation of the shit end of the stick in Thatcherite Britain. Absolutely top-drawer stuff featuring Bernard 'Theoden' Hill.

That's been on my to watch list for about ten years! One day maybe!

I watched 11:14 last night, I enjoyed it. Kept me focused the whole time.

innovative drama composed of five seemingly random story lines that intersect at precisely 11:14 p.m.

I watched the Breakfast Club and Ferris Buellers Day Off because I hadn't ever bothered with them and someone said I needed to watch them, they were alright.

I also watched



Lost In Translation

Really heart warming, most enjoyable. And I really fancy Scarlett.
