Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011)

Director: Sean Durkin

Writer: Sean Durkin

Cinematographer: Jody Lee Lipes

Very atmospheric Film about a girl fleeing from a cult. Even though not all the characters are completely believable, the overall mood, created among other things by the subtle cinematography really works.

My Rating: 7/10

RECOMMENDED

Finsterworld (2013)

Cinematographer: Markus Förderer

An episodic film that should have been an essay. A movie chaneling the author’s disdain for germany, but certainly not cinema

My Rating: 4/10

"Drück ab. Feigling."

Benny’s Video (1992)

Director: Michael Haneke

Writer: Michael Haneke

Heaven Can Wait (1943)

Director: Ernst Lubitsch

Cinematographer: Edward Cronjager

After a colorful and funny exposition the film sadly loses it’s dramatic momentum. Watch Ernst Lubitch’s “To Be or Not to Be” (1942) instead!

My Rating: 6/10

"Nobody's safe with me."

image

Tyrannosaur (2011)

Director: Paddy Considine

Writer: Paddy Considine

Cinematographer: Erik Wilson

A slow moving portrait of two souls that have been violated and hurt again and again, trying to get out of their vicious circle. Despite it’s great actors and beatiful cinematography something is missing.

My Rating: 6/10

"The world is full of evil."

Director: Paul Greengrass

Disguised as an action flick, this thrilling movie gives you a fictionalized look into the political, military and social reality that shaped the second Iraq War.

image

Source Code (2011)

Director: Duncan Jones

Writer: Ben Ripley

Cinematographer: Don Burgess

Even though the movie tries to deal with interesting philosophical questions the get buried under explosions and fails to sell it’s ridiculous premise. Very disappointing follow-up to duncan jones’ moon (2009)
