Radioactive…

I really like good biographical movies. Especially when I know just enough about the person’s life to get interested, but not enough to see things coming… I had been waiting for Radioactive for awhile, and this afternoon seemed fit to watch it, wrapped in my favorite blanket. Based on the novel Radioactive: Marie & Pierre…… Continue reading Radioactive…

Druk!

When not able to go to Denmark, let Denmark come to you! I have been waiting for Druk (”drunk” in English) for a long time, now. The filming of new Danish movie starring Mads Mikkelsen had been delayed, back in May of 2019, when the director’s daughter was killed in a car accident. Ida was Thomas Vinterberg’s…… Continue reading Druk!

Midsommar…

  When a young American couple accepts the invitation of a Swedish friend, to come with him and celebrate a nine days long mid summer festival in his remote rural home village, the events quickly take a series of dark turns…   Although ”Midsommar” is listed as a horror film, I’d rather say it qualifies as…… Continue reading Midsommar…

Polytechnique… (December 6th FFF)

I was invited (well, not personally, but still…) to join the Fandango’s Friday Flashback! Fandango scrolls back, every Friday, and gives a second chance to a post he had published on the same date the year before. I thought it was a great way to remember some of the stuff I did a while back, and I decided to participate… So…… Continue reading Polytechnique… (December 6th FFF)

Arctic…

  Sunday was movie night again! Aside from my boulimic attendances to the Montréal World Film Festival, I don’t go to the movie theater very often. It is very rare that I’ll go twice within a couple of weeks, but I couldn’t take a chance to miss Arctic, so I went to the cinema again,…… Continue reading Arctic…

Looking back… Day 12.

  As I mentionned in my previous post, today I had a date with Mads. Quite a short one as his role in At Eternity’s Gate was minor (though he was absolutely splendid, as usual), but a nice reunion anyway. The movie was amazing. Truly worth a trip downtown despite the biting cold. There would be…… Continue reading Looking back… Day 12.

I’m going to see Eternity’s Gate!

No… Don’t worry, it’s not what it seems. I am just going to the movie theater this afternoon. Mads Mikkelsen is starring in At Eternity’s Gate and I learnt about this only a couple of weeks ago. I suspect he wanted to offer me an early Christmas present! How sweet of him, right? I wish you all…… Continue reading I’m going to see Eternity’s Gate!

Lucky three…

  Montreal World Film Festival is a yearly celebration of the best cinema produced all around the planet. It is a wonderful way to discover different cultures, and the different ways to tell stories. I like movies based on real events, and both three movies I watched yesterday were. This kind of films makes me…… Continue reading Lucky three…

Turning my brain off.

Might sound a little dark, but it really isn’t. As you might have read yesterday, today was my first day of a short vacation. I really needed to give my crazy brain from spinning, and the perfect solution was there for the taking; Montreal World Film Festival! So this morning I made myself a sandwich,…… Continue reading Turning my brain off.

Who would I be?

It is not the first time I ask myself just that. Yes, I do have existential doubts like everybody else, but this is not it. I just watched (again) the 1966 movie inspired by the 1953 novel from Ray Bradbury;   To make a long story short (many of you might have read/seen it but…… Continue reading Who would I be?
