A Dangerous Method This was a bit of a disappointment - A Dangerous Method is a Cronenberg movie after all, but i feel like he touched upon a interesting subject and instead of going deeper into it, he decided to make a partially funny (deliberately or not) romance movie. We are introduced to the relationship between Jung and Freud, but we don't see enough of it to feel the pain of the rupture between them. The rupture that will bring Jung to a nervous breakdown (or: when he gives in and let's his unconscious take over). Also, the sexual relationship between Jung and Sabina Spielrein has lots of potential - may it be a doctor-patient relationship, a soda-masochistic sexual one, or the partnership admiration between two scientists - yet at the end of the movie we are meant to believe it was a (mainly) romantic one. I feel we are missing scenes to make both those 2 relationships believable. Maybe it's all there in the 3-hour director's cut, i'll just have to wait. edit wp | stream | movie Thu, 19 Jan 2012 11:08:37
Limitless Limitless (2011) takes an interesting idea and completely ruins it. It's about a pill that amplifies your focus and attention capabilities to a max and gives you unlimited access to every possible memory. Which in combination makes you very clever of course. Yet because drugs are bad you go onto a downward-spiral once you are off it. Unless - you can afford to keep the pills coming, then you learn to overcome it's dangerous side-effects and eventually make your brain adapt to stay in hyper-mode without the chemicals. So, why was there a need to include gangsters and shootouts in this story? edit wp | stream | movie Mon, 28 Mar 2011 10:18:26
Melancholia Depressive people stay calm at the onsite of an approaching disaster because they already expect bad things to happen. This is what inspired Lars van Trier to write and direct Melancholia and is beautifully portrayed when at the end Justine finds her strength and comforts Claire and Leo. Gorgeous setting, dramatic music, and a most beautiful harbinger of death in the form of a blue planet dancing it's last dance. edit wp | stream | movie Sat, 26 Nov 2011 22:29:58
Martha Marcy May Marlene
I am back from the movies, and i am still puzzled and captivated by Martha Marcy May Marlene. Mostly due the ambiguous abrupt ending that leaves you on the edge of your seat. Amazing work by first time director Sean Durkin, who also wrote the screenplay, incredibly acting by Elizabeth Olsen and John Hawkes, slow and intense storytelling, beautiful camerawork, great editing. Very recommended.

Jane Eyre Beautiful adaptation of Jane Eyre. There have been many before, but this one seems to get it just right. Grand and intimate, epic and sensitive, dreamy and realistic. edit wp | stream | movie Sun, 03 Apr 2011 14:21:02
