DECEMBER

Cinema, 1st viewing
DIRECTED BY Jean Renoir


Probably my last film at Orion (for now). Honestly, I couldn't care much about the prison camp stuff and the dated humour therein, but the last third or so is really pretty. Also enjoyed Erich von Stroheim and Dita Parlo's charismatic acting.

DIRECTED BY Arnaud Desplachin


This is actually the polar opposite of Roma in the sense that the characters and the setup are very intriguing, but the editing is way too hectic and the direction too impersonal to make much of an impression.

Wish this were in colour, because otherwise the cinematography is so gorgeous; the black-and-whiteness doesn't really add anything to it. Similar to other Cuarón films in that it's technically quite a tour-de-force, but the characters and story left me a bit cold, despite a few heart-wrenching key moments.

DIRECTED BY Selma Vilhunen


Repesin yksin nauramaan, kun hitaasti auki rullautuvan autonikkunan takaa liftarin kyyditsijäksi paljastui Jukka Rasila. Aluksi pidin tuota roolitusta kyseenalaisena, mutta hetken kuluttua oivalsin, että Rasilahan on oululainen, minkä jälkeen arvostin, että tuollaiseen pieneenkin rooliin on valittu oikeasti murrealueelta oleva kaveri.

Kaiken kaikkiaan virkistävä Suomi-leffa; Selma Vilhunen vaikuttaa olevan erityisesti hyvä näyttelijäohjaaja, sillä roolisuoritukset ovat pääasiassa oikein hyviä eikä elokuvan dialogikaan kuulosta lainkaan niin luonnottomalta kuin suomalaisissa yleensä.

En oo varsinaisesti mikään Queen-fani, mutta tää leffa kiinnosti silti jostain syystä; kai Queen ja Mercury kiinnostaa mua jotenkin ilmiöinä, vaikkei musiikki erityisemmin sytytäkään. Aika perus wikipediamainen musiikkibiopikki tää taas oli, mutta aivan viihdyttävä sellainen. Erityishatunnosto Malekille pääroolista ja soittokohtauksille, jotka näytti varsin autenttisilta.

Now that I had the subtitles to support me understanding anything, I enjoyed the shit out of the language here. The atmosphere is great, too, but the story itself is a bit too thin; a bit of unfulfilled potential, sadly. The ending is nice though.

Takasin Hitchcock-projektin pariin. Josko nää leffat tämän myötä alkais jo parantua. Erittäin karismaattista näyttelyä ja hyvää jännityksen rakentamista; lisäksi sellainen aiemmista Hitchcockin leffoista tuttu kökkö huumori puuttuu loistaa ilahduttavasti poissaolollaan.

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.

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.

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.
