Metin Erksan / Sevmek Zamanı / 1965

Sinema yönetmen sanatıdır. Erksan dünya çapında ustadır. Bu aralar sevdiğim siyah beyaz filmleri yeniden izliyorum, pek çoğunu yazmışım, yazmadıklarımı da zaman zaman eklemeye gayret edeceğim. Konusunu herkes biliyordur; Halil, Meral’in fotoğrafına aşık olur; Meral, Halil’in aşkına. Mekân, tüm bu öykünün yayıldığı üçüncü bir varlığın ifadesine dönüşür ki Erksan’ın alametifarikası da kendini böyle gösterir. Öykü gözlerimizin […]

Roadrunner, I’ve Seen It

By Karen The documentary about Anthony Bourdain that we’ve been anticipating for at least two years finally hit theaters today, and I just returned from the first showing. Besides me, only 11 other people, including four men, were in the audience. I sat in the top row corner in case I got emotional and had […]

Film Review: “The Last Letter from Your Lover” (2021)

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rating: 3.5 out of 5. Who does not like watching love stories? Whether it is with a happy ending or not, it has something to warm our hearts. Remember Arthur Hiller’s “Love Story” (1970) with Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal? Or “The Way We Were” (1973) with Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford or the […]

Review: Old

Old is a thriller from M. Night Shyamalan, the mind that brought us The Sixth Sense. Because it is Shyamalan, Old follows his formula – a a simple story + a twist = good film. The simple story in Old – a family on vacation ends up on the secluded beach with a group of […]

Thoughts on PIG

Truffle hunters will camp out on their porches at night, shotgun in hand, to fend off competing hunters trying to steal their valuable pigs and dogs. What? That was one of those facts that felt otherworldly yet immediately relatable to me, and that’s where PIG started. Michael Sarnoski – director, PIG Prior to watching PIG, […]

Gunpowder Milkshake

Spoiler alert: I’m pretty sure the milkshake’s actually just vanilla. Public safety notice: Don’t eat gunpowder. It’s not delicious and it also might set your toots on fire. Friendly piece of advice: Chocolate beats vanilla. Peanut-butter-brownie’s even better. Salted-caramel-pretzel is the best. Movie premise: Sam (Karen Gillan) is abandoned as a child by her assassin […]

Film Review: “Black Widow” (2021)

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rating: 4 out of 5. Black Widow is one of the most fascinating characters I personally started respecting after her ultimate sacrifice in The Avengers End Game. There’s something about her you can’t disregard. It’s not just her contagious charm or ability to convince the rest of the world why she deserves to be […]

Chinatown

”Forget it Jake. It’s Chinatown.” Those immortal words have been parodied to death over the years and if you haven’t seen Chinatown, you would have heard those lines spoofed in another film or TV show. Once you see what has just occurred and those five words are uttered by Joe Mantell who played Jake Gittes’s […]

The Fortune

Turning up on Amazon Prime’s streaming service like a lost sock, Mike Nichols’ forgotten comedy is a star-powered throwback to the screwball comedy era, top-lined by Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty. Comedy and period revivals were a big deal in the 70’s, from What’s Up Doc? To The Sting, but The Fortune, despite an illustrious […]

Dr. Strangelove: How Kubrick Made Us Love The Bomb

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rating: 8 out of 10. The world can end in many ways: a super-volcanic eruption, an asteroid impact, a gamma ray burst, a devastating pandemic (that one’s still on the table), even a rogue black hole. But while those are all a vengeful mother nature’s doing, nuclear warfare could only be placed on humanities’ […]

This Is Spinal Tap Still Stands Eighteen Inches Tall

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Note : 8.5 sur 10. The cultural zeitgeist of mockumentaries (or ‘rockumentaries’, if you will), a film doesn’t simply get credited with that title without some of the greatest jokes ever to be told. I don’t think I need to say anymore. But I will, because this would a very boring review if I didn’t. This […]

“The Sleepless Unrest”

It doesn’t look like much. The Harrisville, Rhode Island home might not get a lot of second or third looks on Zillow. “Needs paint” translates as “rustic” and “historic.” “Low ceilings” just means its out of date. But “historic” is right on the mark. This 300 year-old wood frame/clapboard house is where the events depicted […]

The crew of three dock with their starship to Mars, pop the hatch on their shiny, white, aluminum alloy and glass space ship and busy themselves with firing it up to make another trip to the Red Planet, and overcoming motion sickness. It’s a complex “cycler” craft, generating artificial gravity by tethering and rotating the […]

The year is 1981 and Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, of course!) have just screwed up another exorcism.  Only Ed hears as Arne Johnson (Ruairi O’Connor) begs the demon that has possessed 8 year-old David Glatzel (Julian Hilliard) to enter him instead.  Unfortunately, Ed also has a heart attack and passes […]
