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.

nazis riding T Rexes on the moon, brought their by Steve Jobs worshipping apple
fanboy cultists. What could possibly go wrong? Not much, although they could
actually dial up the silliness even further. Nice jabs at abrahamic monotheism, catvideos
and tinfoilery as well. Probably the second best film involving a spaceship
heading to Mars I've seen today.

was more than a film. The screening I went to was an event, an experience
specifically tailored. Keeping with and enhancing the theme of the film, a small
group gathered in a gray industrial area and was led through the sludge to a
warehouse, wherein eight sarcophagi lay waiting. We were to watch the film
enclosed in said sarcophagus for the duration of the film.
itself is skillfully crafted, with excellent acting and imagery giving life to
Martinsson's book. A dark and twisted Wall-E, and just as good.
experience is definitely something to recommend. Or rather, I'd recommend it if there
were any more opportunities, but alas, there's not. I suppose one could craft a
sarcophagus and add a tablet to its ceiling. And until Aniara is released on
streaming media or Blu-ray, any other claustrophobic films could do, such as
Alien, Das Boot, Buried or others.
all, a memorable afternoon, on all accounts.

Moore show, basically. She's absolutely brilliant, but kudos also to John
Turturro, who definitely holds his own in this down-to-earth drama about
embracing life after 55.

amusing. Could be darker, though, but the subtle references music and film
history is a nice nod, and fits with the narrative nicely.

not sure if Laurentiu believes his stories and theories himself. The
interviewer certainly has doubts, and so do we. It's laconic, it's dry, it's
sometimes insightful. Very unspectacular.

Khatera is clearly a strong woman. Pregnant with her father's
child, already raising her sister-daughter, she matter-of-factly tells of how
her father constantly raped her and her mother. Not sentimental, not pulling on
any emotional heartstrings, Mani manages to make the audience emphasize with Khatera, feeling her pain and resignation.
