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

    I know suicide is one of the deadly sins, but is being unhappy is a great sin too?

    No wonder this is his most famous works, Abbas Kiarostami bravely telling a story about questioning the meaning of life, when the world around the main characters is full of unhappiness like being in poverty class, being the victim of war and politics, and etc. All of that perfectly ended with a questioning ending that made us think:

    A short documentary about clog makers who live with his wife and the story itself is all about their everyday routine. Jacques Demy here exploring life, dying, and what it feels like to get older. Not only that, here he shows us that human is a social creature who needs cooperation to survive and thrive.

    What I love from Dune directed by Denis Villeneuve is how he build a world with such calmness, full of mystery, gentle, and strangely alluring which is the same style he use when directing Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival. Here, Denis succeeds in building a world of Dune in a smart and efficient way despite how complex it is.

    The cinematography here is fantastic in the hand of Greig Fraser and of course, scoring by Hans Zimmer here is perfect, haunting, and mysterious that made us want to see more and more what will happen to the story and the characters.
