The Idiots (1998)
A fantastic piece of storytelling with a nihilistic undertone. And again I think this couldn't have been done without Dogme -style.

Well, I guess I'm a hopeless romantic because this and the sequel affected me very deeply. Still when I have doubts about my own love life, it's really easy to come back to this and have a reassuring feeling that everything will be okay. Great dialogue and lots of it and still so much is said non-verbally.

Never was a big fan of Dogme -films, but this one changed that perception. Even that it sometimes feels over the top, the camera captures everything so tightly to it's grasp that it's hard to imagine how this movie could've been done without Dogme rules. Entertaining and tragic at the same time.

I'm not usually one of those that rate awful films as five star movies, but this one's an exception. One of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Contains a lot of totally out of place scenes with some hilariously cut action sequences. Great stuff.

Portrays in a very stunning way the links between self meditation, Yankee outbacks and brutal, almost blunt violence. Great black and white cinematography with Neil Young's guitaring create a very mystical atmosphere.

Haven't seen this for awhile but this may be THE film that started this whole hobby with movies. That's why it's near the top. I mainly remember the absurd feelings that Lester (Spacey) has and how it all starts to make sense as the film progresses - even in my head.

Who did, what happened and huh? Nowadays I really can't seem to get over the fact that even those prepubescent teens that don't understand anything about movies think Tarantino is great. And Tarantino's face has been bugging me ever since that thought occured to me (some kind of notion towards elitism?). Still, this one's great.

Haven't seen this for years. Sentimental in a good way and I remember that acting, settings and cinematography were great. May be that after a rewatch points would go down because at the moment my appreciation towards Spielberg is at an all time low.

Sling Blade (1996)
Contains a lot of scenes in which the camera isn't moving and where all the pictures are integrated together harmonically. Doesn't take advantage of the main character's mental disability in creating a touching movie which is something to applaud to. Great music (southern soft rock and other mystical sounds).

The summer I turned fifteen-sixteen and was introduced to alcohol we used to watch this almost every night. I still can hear those birds chirping outside early in the morning and the sun blazing through the windows at the same time the buildings were collapsing in the movie. Still beautiful.

Depp wonderfully acts out the struggle of a young adult in the crossroads of a basic question: what is the right thing to do? Di Caprio's best performance as a mentally handicapped person, which isn't done in an obvious underlining way.

Comments on those movies that I still have some kind of grasp of. Many of these I haven't seen in ages. A whole lot of Hollywood flicks but hey, what can you do? Still trying to dig my head deeper into the films of the 90's.
