Watching movies alphabetically, round II

This is a sequel of the first post: Picking and watching movies alphabetically.

The question What do we watch? is a tough one to answer. We decided to break out of our self-established, comfortable, filter bubble and started watching movies alphabetically.

We made an exception, again, for the letter X and skipped it.1
Q is another letter we had to skip. We couldn’t find a movie starting with Q.

Only few movies in this round left a lasting impression.

Free Solo 2018 Recommendation
3.5 / 5 stars

This movie was thrilling and intense. Had goosebumps most of the time and wanted to scream.

Utøya 22. juli 2018
0.5 / 5 stars

Another one-take movie. I haven’t really liked any one-take movie yet and this one, although covering a movie-worthy topic, wasn’t worth it at all.

What Dreams May Come 1998
3.5 / 5 stars

The atmosphere was amazing and the progression of film style reflected the topic on a very meta basis.

Zero Days 2016 Recommendation
3.5 / 5 stars

Although the impression manifests that the told story is true, no evidence is provided which would hold up in a court house. This ambiguity in combination with its political explosiveness makes it a movie worth watching… with a grain of salt.
