Das Leben Der Anderen - The Lives of Others 2006

A Beautiful Film about human kindness that takes place in the heart of communist Germany before the fall of the Berlin Wall.
The story revolves arround a man that works directly for the government speciallizing in espionage  & interrogation.
He is given  an assignment  in which he is instructed to wire and monitor the home of a famous play writer & his girlfriend who happends to be the main star or his current play.
All is going to plan until he finds himself being  a bit too submmersed into their personal  life, down to the point where he starts to feel their personal pain & comprehends  their actions, triggered  by his own physical  & emotional solitude.
These new found emotions stand a treason to the communist party, putting his judgement and carreer in jeopardy.

Elle 2016 - A Seriously Messed Up French Movie!

 


Now this is what I call a SERIOUSLY twisted film, and in not being modest when I say it, this is hardcore stuff like there's a scene where shes getting rapped in front of her cat in her kitchen floor kinda twisted.



The Movie is centered around the life of a woman named Michèle,

 Michèle is a strong independent single woman at the peak of her her career, she co owns a successful video game production company with her best friend.

 One day as she returns home in the middle of the day  she is viciously beaten and rapped by a masked intruder. 


Michèle being the strong woman that she is, doesn't allow this traumatic event to define her.
She goes back to her daily routine even going as far as announcing the event to her friends in the middle of a casual dinner.

I wont spoil the story, but I can reassure you that it is very twisted, giving us a peek at how complex human needs & personal desires can get.


 

A deliciously crafted foreign delight, you won't be disappointed!

Bates Motel - A Must See Show on A&E





I watched the pilot episode of this show by mistake thinking in was a Movie, and I was pleasantly surprised. 
Here goes a brief description  that  won't give you  any spoilers:
Norman, a kind well mannered soft spoken teenager & his Mother Norma, a beautiful fisty blond have just moved to the quiet town of white pine bay to start of a new  life.
They have purchased  a little motel with the life insurance money they received  from the passing of Normans father, they're  putting all their money hopes  and dreams into the new hotel.
Norman and Norma are the epicenter  of each others universe, their devotion  to each other  can be a little obsessive  at times, they constantly  have fits of jelousy & rage, needless to say they can get a little too close to comfort at times.
Surprisingly  they're  obsessive relationship  is not the problem  here, the real problem is that there is something  wrong  with  Norman.
Norman gets these weird black outs,and whenever  these happen lets just say things get interesting.
Great acting and imaginative  writing  make this show adiccting to watch, there's never a dull moment and it gets better season after season.

A Prophet 2009 - Un Prophete THE BEST MOVIE EVER




 Holy Shit! My eyes have been opened, I have been shown the light, I have been living with mediocre film standards.
THIS is what real cinema is and should be,inspiring, complex, entertaining
  Hands Down the Best Movie I have ever seen.

It all starts out simple, a young man is being booked into prison to serve a sentence of 6 years for beating up a cop,the story slowly evolves into a tale of murder, espionage, betrayal & personal growth.

A Violent Masterpiece

Before I Wake 2016 - When Dreams Come To Life

Recently a friend  asked  me to recommend  her a heartwarming Movie and this was the first to come to mind.
This is pretty much a story of a little boy whos dreams come to life when he falls asleep, all the beautiful  colorful manifestations come out but so do his dark fears and nightmares.
The story is pretty well written, the special effects look super computer generated  at first but they get way better though out  the film, evolving  into something intricate.
The ending ties the whole story up into a neat little package, very enjoyable  to watch.

A Decent Man 2015 Je Ne Suis Pas Un Saluad



A French Film about a man who's life spirals out of control after his memory plays a trick on him, the events leading trickle down and consume him like an avalanche leading to a dramatic finale.

Eddie has all good intentions and thinks hes doing the right thing but at the end even he knows he fucked up.

I know the subtitles can be a a deal breaker for most but take a deep breath,
 take your Ritalin and concentrate!
Je Ne Suis Pas Un Saluad is worth it!
