  • The Royal Tenenbaums

    The Royal Tenenbaums

    Wes Anderson is a genius! Although I liked Hotel Budapest a little better, with this film I was again completely sucked into Anderson's universe. I laughed, was moved and, as always, enjoyed an incredible piece of cinematography!

  • A Clockwork Orange

    A Clockwork Orange

    Does God want goodness or the choice of goodness? Is a man who chooses to be bad perhaps in some way better than a man who has the good imposed upon him? 

    What an experience this was! Visually alone, this was a masterpiece. As always with Kubrick's films, each shot is in itself a great piece of art. You can pause the film at any time and get the feeling that you are standing in front of a painting. The…

    Brilliantly written!!

    Schindler's List

    This movie not only offers a very beautiful, documentary-like, portrayal of a terrible part of history, but above all reminds us of the evil that we humans are capable of. In filming this true story, Spielberg shows that the kindness of a single individual can indeed play a role in the greater whole: a hopeful message that, in my view, we should not forget. Furthermore, the acting of almost everyone is great, with a particularly fantastic performance by Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes. The movie is not only a mark of respect for the victims of the death camps, but also another proof of Spielberg's genius.
