Note : Ok, the pic above is a little bit weird... but this movie is actually really unique. A gorgeous documentary about insects with no comments, just some beautiful classic music. I guess it is pretty much forgotten now but it's a shame because it is a true masterpiece.

Note : When it came out, it was a big scandal. It is quite understandable. For example, to get you in the right mood, it starts with 3 different sex scenes. Now, that's what I call an introduction ! I think the story was really fascinating. No real heros,just really twisted minds with rather sick obessions. The directing is great aswell as the cast.

Note : This is just a really fascinating story with some great directing and acting (who thought Courtney Love could act so well?!?). Very well done.

The Funeral (1996)


Note : Back in the 90's, I was a huge Ferrara fan. Unfortunately, Ferrara doesn't really make very good movies anymore... But this one is definitely worth a look!

The Promise (1996)


Note : The Dardenne brothers have made some amazing movies and this is one of my favorite. It is really raw, realistic and spellbing at the same time.

Note : I was really impressed by the second movie directed by Danny Boyle. Great directing, great acting and a very entertaining movie throughout. I think it is really good but not great though. To me, and this is a really personal point of view that you may not share at all, it has an ambivalent attitude towards drugs. Of course, there are some horrible parts shouting "KEEP OFF THE DRUGS" but, in some over scenes, they rather seem to having a grand time. So, very good but not great.

Note : A classic movie directed by the Coen Brothers. I have a strange relationship with this movie (actually, I have this feeling with almost all Coen movies...). The first time I watched it , I thought it was great, the second time, it was Ok but not great, the third time, it was great again, the fourth time, ok again.... Weird ain't it ? I guess, it all depends on my mood. Anyway, the directing and acting are great and if you like pitch black humor, you should definitely check this one out.

Note : I was really amazed by Thornton’s directing debut. Indeed, at first, you think it will be about a deranged killer who let loose in the real world and goes back killing some more people but it is much more than that. Indeed, it is one of the most fascinating character study you’ll ever see and not only Thornton’s directing was pretty good, his acting was quite amazing as well.

Note : I know it may seem like a terribly romantic movie but it is actually really good. The directing is very competent and all the actors involved give amazing perfomances. Anyway, a movie with Ralph Fiennes or Juliette Binoche is always worth it.

The Dress (1996)


Note : Recently, I have been discovering Alex van Warmerdan’s movies. So far, I had seen 4 of them but, even though I enjoyed all of them, there was all still missing something to really blow me away. With this in mind, since this movie had a much lower rating than his previous movies, I had lower my expectations but, eventually, it turned out to be his best movie I have seen from this director so far. First of all, I always thought that van Warmerdan’s movies were quite funny but this one was just hilarious and I’m pretty sure it is the most hilarious Dutch movie I have seen so far. Seriously, the first 20 minutes were just so funny, it was pretty much pitch-perfect. As usual with this director, the dialogues were pretty neat but, here, they were even better and pretty much always spot on. Concerning the story, sure, it was pretty random but I thought it really well. Basically, it was some kind of hyperlink feature with many small stories linked to some completely random dress but I thought it was much more enjoyable than the other abstract tales usually delivered by the Dutch director.
