    Annette

    Leos Carax's Annette is kind of a game changer. It changes the expectations of what can be called a "genre movie" and an "art film". Annette is the combination of both in its themes and form. The familiar love-hate relationship of a man and a woman, sex and the madness of desire/power, creating/destruction of a family, love triangle, fame and money, inner struggles and the important and invisible line between life/stage, fiction/reality, living a scene/playing a scene and looking at…

    Time

    One of the year's example of classical storytelling with a modern tone. What is important here is how it shows very dramatic scenes filled with tragic emotions but denies sentimentality. Sean Bean's performance is outstanding and also Graham is great. Time makes a contrast between senses/emotions and the emotionless, wild and animal like masculinity which we encounter in the prison. It's warm and cold at the same time.

    Shoplifters

    Shoplifters is the second film I've watched from Koreeda's works and I like his style in Japan's contemporary cinema. Shoplifter's approach to capture the sense of living is by the use of Mise-en-scène and deep focuses on his characters. I loved all the performances and you could completely feel the situations they were dealing with.

    Parasite

    Parasite can be called a decent film, though I expected much more from Memories of Murder's director. I think in Parasite there are two different tone and rhythm. First half which is the 'set up' scenes, the black comedy and everything seems about right, the problem of Parasite starts when they come to the victims' house to spend the night, from now on everything is a mess! The film losts its way and ends badly. I still think his Memories of Murder is his best work till today and I think it's also his only good feature.
