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

    To pin this review to my profile I have left a gap between what I write here and the beginning of this review so that the movie doesn't get spoiled for anyone accidentally.








































    Fight Club as a metaphor for initially good religions with good ideas gone bad (like Christianity, Buddhism)

    First of all I should say that I admire Tyler Durden and the things he says, in the first half of the movie. Then he goes bonkers. But that…

    * A masterpiece

    * I loved how Bergman focusses on faces. Loved the whole artistry, the music, the shots and the story.

    * I saw three kinds of meaning in this movie. Literal, metaphorical and the third one is a spoiler.

    * I am only writing part of my literal interpretation here in the non spoiler section. I don't think most of the meaning I saw in the movie is a spoiler. But I don't…

    * Bullying is a huge problem in our society and obviously it happens more among children and in schools. It happens mainly because of our tribal nature which makes us angry at anything different (of course other reasons are also there). In the past it was an evolutionary advantage for group protection and cohesion. But it no longer is like many things about our evolutionary past.

    The key word for bullying is difference and that's where the character of Stuart…

    * Even before this movie, because of my experience with his masterpieces such as A Separation (2011), The Past (2013), The Salesman (2016) and Fireworks Wednesday (2006) I used to consider Iranian writer and director Asghar Farhadi as the Shakespeare of my time. Why? His sense for brilliantly and exquisitely constructed dramatic stories, without using any extraordinary ideas like science fiction, fantasy or horror and by just using normal human situations is the best I have ever seen. I don't…

    * I do not agree with Fred Hampton theoretically. Outright socialism I vehemently oppose. So do I a violent revolution against a democratically elected government. However I respect and admire Fred Hampton at the same time. Because I think all his actions, whatever theoretical background they belong to, are reactions from a cruelly oppressed community. They are natural and just in my eyes.

    * Simple exaplanations for my theoretical disagreements - I prefer a mixed economy where there is a…

    * It surprisingly had the strongest story I have seen in a Fast and Furious movie ever in some parts (Dom and Jakob drama) and weakest story I have seen in some parts. 😂 Good old Fast and Furious was indeed back.

    * The action was really weaker than the last few movies in my eyes. But still fun. They obviously had few surpises in store but most people knew all this would happen. But the final surprise filled me…
