    California Dreamin'

    ★★★½

    The first half was very clunky and felt aimless but the film became a good comedy in the second half, ending with a striking finish.

    Extremely political, but this movie is not about the US. This movie is about the Balkans. I love how it was mentioned that Nato bombings not only hit Yugoslavia but also Bulgaria and Romania, showing how the Yugoslavian dissolution affected others, not only its members.

    The ending gives a simple and maybe very cliché message,…

    This movie feels like it's tickling me a little.

    Not overambitious with complex plotlines -which many films of this genre are- not too serious but also still not too frivilous with its comedy either. Extremely political, but not all about the message so that you can still quite enjoy the story as it is. Also not perfect, but still pretty damn good.

    The Thing proves it. Atmosphere is everything!!

    Perfect film to watch at 5 in the morning during quarantine.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Cold War is the definition of a beautiful film. Everthing looks gorgeous, every frame leaves a mark under your skin; such a special achievment for a filmmaker to make a film that is so pretty in every aspect.

    I love the scenes where the camera rotates around its axis for an extended amount of time. There is one with 105 seconds, one with 70 seconds and one with 50 seconds. All of them tell several stories about several characters in…
