Under the Skin

Ever since I’ve watched it, I’ve been thinking about us, robots. The ET beings, not born out of Pure Love but merely sent to Earth for a pre-ordered function, trying to cope in the meantime with every side-effect of having a pussy and boobs, and – God forbid – budding feelings. 

Man on the Moon

50 Shades of Grey

Ok so I watched the film instead, which was basically the same thing as sleeping, if one could be bored and #rolleyes excessively while sleeping, then enter Johnnie Walker for things to be bearable at all.

Cafe de Flore

I don’t know why so many people have told me to watch this film for years. Said I would like it, and that they saw me there. I truly don’t know why or how they got this idea, this association. Watching it, I didn’t like it. I suffered through it. I was suffocating. At the very end, […]

The Theory of Everything

To be looked at by someone as if your first encounter is a mere formality because their eyes gleam caressing your face like they’ve enjoyed the view for ages. To experience respectful and tender bearing that makes you want to be giving. To meet someone who sees you and they know. And you know. I love you. …it’s a false conclusion. […]

Endless Love

One of the amazingly romantic films that will make you feel both mellow and somewhat shitty: for one, who doesn’t like to dream; on the other hand, it brain-damages you to the point where you might even expect real-life people to fight for love and chase you when you’re gone. Seriously, I’ve read romantic films have negative effects on […]

Thanks for Sharing

To everyone who’s faced their demons. To everyone who has risen, failed and carried on one day at a time. To everyone who has put a giant effort into loving themselves. To everyone who’s been considered hopeless and then guided their teachers along the way. To everyone whose love and forgiveness is greater than fear […]

Begin Again

Wow. Wow. It misses all the prerequisite components: sex between the main characters, a happy ending – an actual ending! – because it’s like that in life, there is never an ending (luckily, there is some sex, though).

Une Rencontre

To say I was a weird kid would be an understatement. With a foster-home haircut, I was often confused for a boy, too. When I saw my first film with Sophie Marceau, I realised a girl who didn’t smile could be beautiful nonetheless, so she sort of became a bit of a role model for a […]

Hans, My Hedgehog

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCvED0fSpwM I can’t believe I found my all-time favourite fairy-tale film… Gosh, such production doesn’t even exist these days, and some would say thank God – but it’s my childhood memory that doesn’t even invite nano-3D miracles for competition. 

Only Lovers Left Alive

I think I just saw one of my all-time favourites! I mean how amusing can it get when Adam and Eve appear to be still here among us? And yet it can – when you find out just how they get by.


Having seen me walking around the office with my nose in the phone (#typical), my new Manager once said: “You know what Kris, you should really see a film called Her. It’s about you – if you were a guy.”

Winter’s Tale

What if, once upon a time, there were no stars in the sky at all?What if the stars are not what we think?What if the light from afar doesn’t come from the rays of distant suns……but from our wings as we turn into angels?

Io sono l’Amore

Love is above decency, family, material welfare, betrayal and everything else. You see a polished person and admire them having mastered the subtleties of the requisite performance expected from their marital, social and money status. But you also see through: it’s not in their blood.
