Blindspot 2019, March: Stand By Me

Blindspot

Last month I had to push the Three Colours trilogy back, and the plan was to watch it in March. Queue me today, at 7PM in the evening, realising that it was the last Monday of the month. And guess what? I hadn’t even watched one of the three I had planned. Hence the choice of the shortest film in my Blindspot 2019 list – Stand by Me.…

Free Solo (2018)

Documentary

For some reason, when a documentary clicks with me, I tend to watch them many many times. The September Issue being one I’ve seen close to 10 times, and Bill Cunningham New York a close second. Now, Free Solo has joined the ranks of my favourite documentaries, taking the honorary place in the top 3.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Private Eye

Thursday Movie Picks

Another week of me trying to figure out my recommendations before giving up. You see, for me these very specific themes always are the hardest because I really haven’t seen that many films. With my no-double-recommendations rule as well, it sometimes sort of narrows me to a very tight squeeze. Like this week with the private eye theme. Anyway, that is the reason today’s post is like an uphill journey. Starts with the bad, ends with the good.…

Commercial Break: Slay Me

Commercial Break

It’s time to sit back, grab some coffee (or tea), and dive into a massive post called Commercial Break. This time I look back to 1,5 months of movies, shows, books and music. Which, honestly, is a lot of things to discuss in one post. But if I can write it, you can read it! By the way, I’m skipping the life stuff because it’s been a little rocky lately. So let’s stick with the professional blog related stuff.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Movies You Thought You’d Hate But Ended Up Enjoying

Thursday Movie Picks

Not going to lie, Thursday Movie Picks has been a little bit rocky these past few weeks. I messed up weeks, then cold war wasn’t my theme at all but THIS WEEK! This week is absolutely amazing, because I feel very motivated to just go wild. Fun and wild, and just movies I thought I was going to dislike. I’ll not say hate, because I wouldn’t even watch it if I expect hate. I’ll just end up hating them for…

Truth and Justice (2019)

Foreign Movie

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 about the future. It’s also a film that might seem strongly connected to Estonian history, and yet, it manages to convey a universal message. Here are…

Thursday Movie Picks: Cold War

Thursday Movie Picks

So here’s a funny story. I didn’t plan to do this without the help of an IMDb list, but when I went to scroll through it, I was slapped in the face. Because when I picked out three movies for this list, I had no back-up option. In other words, no selection took place here. I’m just listing the three from a Cold War movie list that I’ve actually seen.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Starring Real Life Couples

Thursday Movie Picks

So last week, I fucked up! In other words, I messed up my weeks and thought last week was the last Thursday of February. Well, it was not. So if you want to read THIS week’s recommendations, go HERE. This is just what was supposed to happen last week. Inspired by my own fuck up, the list is compiled of three real-life married couples, who were together but now they’re not.…
