BlindSpot 2018, February: Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, & Before Midnight

Though I set myself a pretty big goal for the shortest month of the year, I watched all three Before movies. At first I thought I’d talk about them as a whole, as a packaged deal, but after finishing the second movie, I knew I had to view them separately. Here are my thoughts on Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight.

EV100: A 100 Scenes From a 100 Estonian Movies

Today is a day of celebration here in Estonia, and I wanted to celebrate as well. Last time I did a post similar to this to celebrate my 1000th post here on Mettel Ray, and it was fun. A little crazy but mostly fun! This time I’m sharing a 100 scenes from a 100 Estonian films, from 1924 to 2017. Many movies from the beginning of the list haven’t survived, but images have. For me, the selection ended up being random, but there are definitely a few nostalgic and favourite picks here and there. In other words, happy 100th Estonia, I’m proud to call you my home!

But when I started to think of other shows related to workplaces, I realised I have three picks that are also very much related to each other. Oh and apparently I have a thing for law firms.

Since 1997, Tallinn’s Black Nights Film Festival, a unique event showing feature films as well as short films, animations and youth films, has grown and developed into an A-class film festival. Taking place in November, when the nights here in Estonia are black and the air is cold, the festival provides warmth and comfort to cinema lovers, friends and enthusiasts all around the world. My own experience with Black Nights has been different each year but there’s always a constant feeling I have towards this film festival: admiration.
