I’ve been catching up with films I haven’t watch this year. Few blockbusters but mostly independent/ international films, which are the best to be honest, because what they lack in budget they exude in EPIC creativity.
Below few films I recently watched:
I didn’t really know what this movie was about, I only knew it had to do with sexual identity. After watching it, I couldn’t stop to think about it…
The main character is troubled young adult confused and suffocated under drugs and a toxic group of delinquent friends. Struggling with his own identity, he begins to meet older men (he finds on hookup sites) at a nearby cruising beach while simultaneously dating a young woman.
Minus the drugs, this film is a mirror of closet-bisexuals. But mainly, in my opinion, the openness of the new generation sexual exploration.
Young guys nowadays don’t complicate themselves overthinking male or female, sexuality is vast and sex could be good with both. I said that because 95% of my 2017 sexmates are bisexuals, and the few times they shared with me their feelings it was clear how normal they see it.
Regardless, Beach Rats is not the feel-good type of film.
But is intriguing and makes you think.
This movie was all I expected… fun from beginning to end. Obviously, if you’re into violence and blood.
You don’t go to operas for dancing or ballets for singing, and you don’t see Atomic Blonde for anything but a badass female protagonist crunching bones and pulping faces in gratifyingly long takes.
I love the fact the scenario was Germany during the last days of the Berlin Wall and the Cold War. The soundtrack was an epic collection of 80’s masterpieces that reminded me of my childhood (thanks to my uncles) and the images of the Wall coming down.
Fun, fun, so much fun!
This is a gruesome Belgian “horror” film.
Raw is pretty disgusting and disturbing from times, yet hypnotic with an endless drip drip drip of revelation that gradually exposes a terrifying world behind…
A girl goes to veterinary school as a vegetarian and quickly becomes a meat eater… a human meat eater.
Raw is a tale of young cannibalism told with pulse-pounding energy with some of the grossest visuals you’ll see in a film this year.
Needless to say, expect a Hollywood remake!
