Sicario (2015)

After Villeneuve’s more than brilliant ‘Incendies’ every film he makes will be looked to with great anticipation, which also makes it a lot easier to fail to meet these high expectations. But to be honest with his new film ‘Sicario’ he does it again! ‘Sicario’ is about the fight against drug trafficking and well let’s say this isn’t the first time a movie has been made about this subject. This also doesn’t make it easier to keep this kind of high level that Villeneuve maintains. But with the simply great soundtrack, brilliant acting (well don’t we expect that all of Benicio del Toro but also Emily Blunt and Josh Brolin totally feel themselves comfortable in their roles) and a total absence of something positive in it’s story makes it an unforgettable experience. From the very start of the film you are dipped in this world of violence and without compassion. You will be gripped with such a depressive feeling it will find its way through all of your veins and you can’t do anything else than get hypnotized and enjoy the ride.

Before Sunrise (1995)

And then suddenly you see the beauty of it all again in one film: Richard Linklater's 'Before Sunrise' is what my blog is about. It is true beauty of film which doesn't need much in fact. Walking and talking, that pretty sums up the entire movie. Simple? maybe but definitely a masterpiece! Everything in 'Before Sunrise' breaths romance and this is not only because of the fantastic location of Vienna. The magic of attraction between Julie Delphy and Ethan Hawke is beyond words, it is just impossible not to feel their love during this film. Great dialogues and astonishing magic between the two leads.
Also the thought of time which passes and soon will just be a memory makes it an unforgettable experience.

When you feel nothing, you are nothing........

The next scene just says it all
