My movie year 2014 (645 movies items)

"4.4. (USB-tikku) Ei ole elokuvan vika, jollei katseluhetkellä mielenkiinto ole terävimmillään. Aamukahvin ja ikkunaverhojen läpi porottavan auringon parissa tämä kaunista mustavalkokuvausta hyödyntävä antisemitismin analyysi meni psyykkisesti aika levottomissa merkeissä. Kuten mainittua, visuaaliselta puoleltaan surrealistinen, fiksua symboliikkaa kihisevän kuhiseva filmi on dopamiinia, eikä musapuolellakaan ole ryssitty. Bergmanin Mansikkapaikalle heitetään kunniaa."

Magnificent Cinema (85 movies items)

"A hypnotic horror movie in which a Nazi working in crematorium drives to madness. Visually so fucking amazing that only because of it you have to confess it as a masterpiece. Rudolf Hrusínský is absolutely magnificentand the soundtrack is thrilling. The Cremators becomes more and more thrilling towards the end. One of the clearest gems of Czech new-wave. "
