When I'm Done Dying still

When I’m Done Dying (2020)

After posting solely Thursday Movie Picks for a month I figured it was about time to review something. This November I have had the opportunity to participate in the 24th Black Nights Film Festival. An event that is near and dear to my heart. Due to the pandemic a lot of the movies are available […]

365 Days (2020)

There comes a time in ones life when they must ask themselves: if life is so shit, why not make it worse? And when that question is raised, the doubt starts to linger. Why not? Why not put yourself through something awful because life’s pretty messed up anyways. Maybe it will help, maybe it will […]

Truth and Justice (2019)

It’s been almost a week since I saw one of the most anticipated Estonian films of the decade – Truth and Justice by Tanel Toom. A film that tells a harrowing story of life, family and honor. But while the film’s themes are imbedded in the past, its message reflects the present and asks questions […]

4 Kings (2015)

After two months of not stepping into a movie theater I broke the curse, and saw two movies on a Sunday at my local theater. Both movies were apart of the Black Nights Movie Festival, and both movies I loved for their emotional impact and powerful story telling. First of those movies was 4 Kings, […]

High Tension (2003)

Trying out some new image editing but can’t get rid of that rating twitching – I’m guessing it’s just shaking from fear or something. For those who happen to stumble upon this blog because of this post, keep in mind, I’m definitely not a horror person. When I was a kid, I was terrified of […]

War Witch (2012)

Amour (2012)

By pure coincidence, I’m listening to Scala & Kolancy Brothers version of Nothing Else Matters and I can’t help to suddenly feel like I should avoid writing up this review because I will be an emotional wreck by the end. Still, it’s going to be hard to write about Amour a week from now, two […]

Love Me If You Dare (2003)

Certainly I’m no expert on the matter of foreign films, I watch them quite rarely and well, I’m no Bonjour Tristesse but I do stumble on some when I get the courage. Love Me If You Dare was a French movie I watched about a month ago and the reason I’m getting to this now, […]

The Intouchables (2011)

Warning: this is more of an emotional and personal review. It may cause tears but it probably won’t. There comes a time in my everyday life when I’m willing to offer my whole attention to a movie – usually it means that I’m focused enough to read subtitles! I know it may sound a bit […]
