Terry Gilliam | 132min | ESP, BEL, POR, FRA
Absurd, yet rooted
in reality, Gilliam finally, after 25 years, manage to wrap up the old classic.
Witty and clever, with parallels to the past and the present, in a brilliant
nod to the original novel. It's just the right amount of meta. Adam Driver is surprisingly
well-cast as Not-Really_Sancho Panza, but the shining star is undoubtedly

Visually it's a
masterpiece. Narratively, it's at best a little contrived, but mostly
confusing. Actorwise, it ranges from passable to Troll 2. I don't know if
Jessie Ross is someone's daughter/niece or if her atrocious acting is on
purpose, but if so: why? Which is the word that kind of sums up this

Coachmovie by Kasper
Kalle | 90min | Danmark
Bottle episode AND
costume drama AND multi-timeline storytelling in one film? Can it be done?
Of course it can,
else I wouldn't have asked. Using competent actors, well adjusted script and
Highlander level editing, Kalle makes a dying king's last coach ride back to
his castle a thrilling tale.

Khmerodrama by Denis
Do | 87min | BEL, CAM, FRA, LUX
backgrounds are visually stunning, the main animation could be better.
Story-wise, it's touching and emotionally horrific, as would be expected, given
the heavy subject: The Khmer Rouge treatment of the Cambodian people and
families being torn apart.

music (which is to be expected in a film depicting the various revolutions and
human rights movements of the mid-to-late 1960's), nice animation (reminiscent
of the Franco-Belgian style) and well thought-out story contribute to the best
Basque animated feature of the year. Extra plus for the belly dancing scene,
which brilliantly juxtaposes human desire with the philosophy of revolution. It
loses momentum sometimes, and at times the story is a bit contrived.

not too distant future, automation, rejuvenation and digitalisation has been
developed further. Human relations are still as important as today, and
betrayal hurts no matter what era. We follow the main character in three
different ages of his life, chronologically reversed. The first third, when
he's older, is by far the best, and promises some interesting things to come.
Unfortunately they don't, and the next third is less rewarding than the last.
Not bad, just a bit disappointing.

promised as an extreme monsterslasher. It's not. It starts with a slit throat,
and intermittently some gore occurs, but that's it, splatter-wise.
Towards the end we get to see the
admittedly grotesque monster in full view. Grotesque, yes, but hardly
believable as an effective killer machine. It's basically a phallic and vaginal
manatee, and just as graceful on land. The vast majority of the time it's just
objectively ugly people not really talking or emoting. Yawn.
