Watching movies alphabetically, round IV
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.
Here are the previous rounds:
The alphabetic selection strategy still works fine. However we watched several other
movies in the meantime.
Check the recently rated movies page to see which other movies I’ve rated.
As a German I can just say: this is pure fiction. Don’t waste your time.
Anyway, when watching, opt for something stronger than beer to bear this flick.
A kid sueing his parents for neglect. It was filmed without educated actors and thus it appears very real (and it is - read the Trivia on IMDb after watching).
A strong, dark and calm movie about a true murder. I found the acting to be top-notch; the emotions were transported so well.
This feels like the lowlight of the series.
The Lighthouse was a very special movie. Shot in black and white in a square aspect ratio (yes, it has been produced in 2019). A great set and setting. Very intense, has many twists, it’s haunting. Overall a great movie but not particularly easy to watch (and understand).
In the epoch of our lifetime, at every corner, there is someone claiming to know it better…
A boring movie which tries to incorporate too many topics IMHO. I do like quiet films and didn’t expect it to live up to the 3 Oscars it won, but it just didn’t impress me.
Visually interesting movie.
