silence of the lambs is horror’s perfect meaning.
you know one liner of ‘the father’ when heard can be boring, you may even think that this will be 1:36 hrs of snoozing, but the debutant florian has did a tremendous work here. it’s not easy to engage viewers the whole time especially with a topic like dementia. you can find similar pattern of narrative in memento, unlike that ‘the father’ is not a thriller. it’s the story of helplessness and the moment you pity yourselves for anthony is where the film wins. there has not been a movie that moved me like ‘the father’ did for a long time. and oscar isn’t worthy of anthony hopkins.
