Agora [2009] Movie Review Recommendation

Agora [2009]

Movies that are dealing with religious subjects are very hard to make. Perfect example is The Passion of the Christ, shrouded in controversy. Agora also belongs to this category, presenting historical events...
Bitter Moon [1992] Movie Review Recommendation

Bitter Moon [1992]

Roman Polanski, a very controversial director (check out documentary Wanted And Desired) made this masterpiece back in 1992, and keep in mind that Mimi is his wife from 1989. The older looks of the movie may...
$9.99 [2008] Movie Review Recommendation

$9.99 [2008]

This little gem (such a classical beginning for a movie review, I shall not use any more :D ) has been hidden from the public for a long time. When it comes to claymation movies, you know that hard work is...
The Pursuit of Happyness [2006] Movie Review Recommendation

The Pursuit of Happiness [2006]

Based on a true story, this phenomenal movie established Will Smith as a serious actor, capable of performing more demanding roles. Following the life of Chris Gardner, and his struggle to survive in this...
A Serious Man [2009] Movie Review Recommendation

A Serious Man [2009]

After Burn After Reading this is the next movie coming to us from Coen brothers. Although I'm a fan of their movies, this one eluded me for a long time and eventually I found it a bit odd and slightly...
Jacob's Ladder [1990] Movie Review Recommendation

Jacob’s Ladder [1990]

Coming to us from famous director Adrian Lyne (Lolita, Fatal Attraction, Nine 1/2 Weeks, Flashdance) this movie tackles a more serious theme then his previous projects. Visually very impressive and...
Apt Pupil [1998] Movie Review Recommendation

Apt Pupil [1998]

Another hit from Stephen King; these words need to be printed on most of his adaptations . I really do not get how he can find inspiration to write such interesting stories. His writing style connects the...
The Lovely Bones [2009] Movie Review Recommendation

The Lovely Bones [2009]

Coming to us from famous Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings, King Kong, Bad Taste) this movie is a very strange mixture of genres. It combines serious issues with very soft storytelling and a very visual...
Malena 2000 Movie Monica Bellucci as Malèna Scordia looking beautiful scene

Malèna [2000]

An incredibly complex movie that only seems simple, oozing with sexuality. It's both a coming-of-age story and intense drama about human nature.
My Sister's Keeper [2009] Movie Review Recommendation

My Sister’s Keeper [2009]

Nick Cassavetes directed another movie that deals with illness (first one was John Q), this time he created a true masterpiece. After her daughter Kate was diagnosed with cancer, her mother Sara will try...
My Year Without Sex [2009] Movie Review Recommendation

My Year Without Sex [2009]

Requiem for a Dream [2000] Movie Review Recommendation

Requiem for a Dream [2000]

One of the first movies to really change the societies attitude towards drugs is also one of the best movies on a subject. Exploring addiction in its pure form is something that's intensely thought-provoking....
He Was a Quiet Man [2007] Movie Review Recommendation

He Was a Quiet Man [2007]

Very strange flick, with viewers divided into two groups, one who think that the movie is utter garbage and other who praise it. Truth is, as always, somewhere in the middle, but my personal opinion is that it...
Un prophète AKA A Prophet [2009] Movie Review Recommendation

Un prophète AKA A Prophet [2009]

Another great movie coming from Europe, this time France, A Prophet will gain its cult status in the decades to follow. It is very disturbing and I do not mean disturbing because something disgusting and sick...
