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?

Truth and Justice (2019)

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.

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 […]
