Drive

DrivePoster1,325 words

Drive, the 2011 award-winning art-house crime thriller, is a modern retelling of the story of the knight in shining armor who saves a damsel in distress from the clutches of evil. Being modern, however, this is not a fairy tale that ends with “. . . happily ever after,” for the modern world cannot offer happiness for the heroic.

The film opens with a handsome young Nordic man (Ryan Gosling) driving through the dark streets of Los Angeles, alone in his 1973 Chevy Malibu. Read more …

Der neue „Star Wars“-Film ist genau das, was ich mir darunter aufgrund der Vorschauen und der Tatsache vorgestellt hatte, daß J. J. Abrams der Regisseur war, ein so vulgärer und kunstloser Filmemacher, daß er Jerry Bruckheimer wie Ingmar Bergman aussehen läßt. Read more …

Spectre

spectre-2670 words

Warning: spoilers ahead

I’m feeling a quantum of disappointment with the latest James Bond movie Spectre. But maybe my expectations were unreasonably high. The last Bond movie, Skyfall, was one of the very best. And Spectre has two of the most artful and enticing trailers ever produced (here and here). With such a buildup, maybe I was doomed to disappointment.
