DIRECTED BY Tim Hunter


Basically a film about Bobby and Mike from the first season of Twin Peaks with Keanu Reeves, Dennis Hopper, Crispin Glover, and some 1980s heavy metal on the soundtrack.

DIRECTED BY Sergei Parajanov




Odotin lähinnä sensorisesti miellyttävää elokuvaa, mutta tämähän oli läpikotaisin kunnon Tumblr-kesäteatteria ja Kummeli-meininkiä, paitsi hauskan sijasta uskomattoman puuduttavaa. Samaistuttavin hahmo oli Jarkko Martikaisen näkönen jätkä, joka tuijotti apeana etäisyyteen, ku sen frendit maiskutti äänekkäästi granaattiomenoita kohtauksessa, jonka aikana olin kuolla vanhuuteen.

Leffan aikana mietin, että vois tälle ehkä kaks tähteä antaa muutamien kivojen kuvien ansiosta ja varovaisesta kunnioituksesta itselle täysin vierasta kulttuuria kohtaan, mutta harvoin tuntuu alle 80-minuuttinen leffa näin pitkältä, joten sama tylyttää kunnolla. Olen nimittäin aika kova jätkä.

Semmonen ajatus kans huvitti, että ois käynyt vessassa leffan aikana ja takas palatessa kysynyt vieruskaverilta, että mitä mää missasin.

Val Kilmer sekoilee Edgar Allan Poen kanssa Francis Ford Coppolan ei aivan Ilmestyskirja. Nytin veroisessa myöhäistuotannon tunnelmapalassa, joka toimisi varmasti 17 kertaa paremmin jurrissa ja porukassa.

Rakkautta & Anarkiaa, 1st viewing
DIRECTED BY Panos Cosmatos


What this film taught me is that Nicolas Cage should be recognized as a seminal act of the first wave of black metal along with Venom, Celtic Frost, and Bathory.

Anyway, the film is an audiovisual masterpiece right from the perfect opening song. It's a shame the film is kind of awkwardly paced, at times redundant and too slow. There's about 20 minutes of stuff that could be edited out.

Also regarding pace, the film should've picked up steam every time Cage took something intoxicating. In its second half, I would've loved to see Mandy turning into something like Altered States by way of New Wave of American Neon Cinema.

However, it would be truly pretentious of me to give this a lower rating than I did. To see my favourite actor in a film in which the interlocking utter beauty and stupidity of cinema is fervently realized as a fever dream, as a childhood nightmare, as the album art of the Black Sabbath debut coming to life, well, it's pretty damn enjoyable.

Here's hoping Cosmatos makes a Lovecraft adaptation next.

Rakkautta & Anarkiaa, 1st viewing
DIRECTED BY Lucrecia Martel


Aluks oli semmonen fiilis, että mitäköhän kuivaa paskaa sitä on taas lähtenyt katsomaan, mutta hyvä ohjaus ja kiinnostavan ressukkamainen päähenkilö piti kiinnostusta yllä siihen asti, että elokuvan viimeisen kolmanneksen aikana lähti vähän jopa tykittelyvaihe päälle. Ei nyt mikään vitosvaihe, mutta ainaki kolmonen.

Tyylikäs elokuva, josta olisi varmaan saanut vielä enemmän irti, jos tuntisi paremmin eteläamerikkalaista historiaa. Täytyy kyllä tsekata muitakin Martelin leffoja.

Rakkautta & Anarkiaa, 1st viewing
DIRECTED BY Nuri Bilge Ceylan


Ceylan's new film is another treasure trove of sharp dialogue and well-rounded characters. Unlike Winter Sleep, though, this really felt like it's more than 3 hours long. The theological discussion was kind of trying my patience, but luckily the film gets back on track and quite touching near the end.

Rakkautta & Anarkiaa, 1st viewing
DIRECTED BY Chloé Zhao


Täytyypä laittaa korvan taakse, ettei käy enää Kesäkino Engelissä kattomassa mitään tai ainakaan tekstittämättömiä jenkkimuminaleffoja. Varsinkin kun syksyisen kirpeässä lauantai-illassa jotku äijät katsoivat asiakseen huutaa viereisellä kadulla aivan vitun lujaa. Siis ei keskustella kovaäänisesti tai laulaa, vaan huutaa. Välillä niillä tais olla myös jotain marssiharjoituksia ku huusivat että VASEN VASEN VASEN VASEN. Kuullu saatana mitään.

Leffalta odotin jostain syystä enemmän, jotain omaperäisempää. Tämä olikin aika perusjenkki-indie-draamaa ja vähän korniakin sellaista. No mut ihan OK tunnelmapala.

Thematically a very interesting film, but I can't help feeling it could've been much more. I kind of like Ethan Hawke but felt he was really misplaced here; they should've cast someone more weary-looking.

Touching lead performances, especially by the young Thomasin McKenzie. Still not the most memorable film in the world, but overall, it's definitely an improvement over Granik's previous fiction film Winter's Bone.

Visto leffa. Another impeccably directed film, though entirely different in feel compared with the previous one I saw. The plot might not be all that special, but who cares when the film is so atmospheric, relentless and just overall breathtaking audio-visually.

I was pretty disappointed with Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin but this one truly showcases her talent as a director, although I also have to give the film credit for having a few of my favorite people working in modern cinema in Greenwood and Phoenix. Anyway, I need to see more Ramsay films.

DIRECTED BY Alfred Hitchcock


Resuming my Hitchcock project after many disappointingly boring and stuffy films of his. Spellbound is no masterpiece either, but at least it's a breath of fresh air with Bergman and Peck as its captivating lead actors. Another part of the film's fun is how it functions as an introduction to later-era Hitchcock films; he would weave psychoanalysis into his plots in a much more interesting and less silly and in-your-face manner later.

The Dali dream sequences were a fun curiosity as well.

It's like a Portuguese Aki Kaurismäki film with all the humour sucked out, its narrative structure broken up, and its pace slowed way down. I enjoyed Costa's beautiful compositions with lights and shadows, but I feel like I should know more about the history of Portugal and Cape Verde to truly appreciate this film.

Hehe. En tiiä kuinka hyvin tää leffa representoi Zhang-ken tuotantoa (eka leffa häneltä mulle, minkä takia osin meninkin katsomaan), mutta en nyt ainakaan pala halusta tutustua siihen syvemmin. Näyttäisi tälläkin leffalla fanikuntansa olevan, joten ehkä mää oon vaan pöljä ku ei jaksanut kiinnostaa.
