Carol (2015)

Not often do films receive a 10-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival. But Carol is one of the most artistically brilliant works ever made. Cate Blanchett’s performance is astonishingly good—and yet Rooney Mara’s performance is somehow equally special. Their chemistry is mesmerizing; you can really feel the tension slowly build between their characters […]

The Weather Underground

The Weather Underground is a documentary about the radical group of that name, and the times that gave rise to it. In addition to archival footage, it includes retrospective interviews with multiple Weather Underground members themselves and other figures from that era. It’s quite well-done and thought-provoking. By the late ’60s, Robert Kennedy and Martin […]

The Office (US) (2005-2013)

A motley group of office workers go through hilarious misadventures at the Scranton, Pennsylvania, branch of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. While I didn’t see the show during its original run, I was aware of its cultural identity and that it launched the careers of John Krasinski (A Quiet Place) et al. I was put […]

Sputnik 2020. Find Earth and Reep.

Sputnik is a film I knew very little about before watching it. Okay, I guess the title is a bit of a giveaway but I hadn’t watched any trailers or read any reviews. It was just the simplicity of the poster above that made me believe this film was worth watching, and when that happens, […]

Allen: Manhattan (1979)

While they’re renowned for their sparkling dialogue and witty repartee, Woody Allen’s films don’t tend to be especially remarkable for their visual beauty. Manhattan is one of the few exceptions that proves that rule, however, since Allen’s collaboration with cinematographer Gordon Willis made this the most visually ravishing film of his entire career. Rather than […]

Rahatsız Ediciliğin Doruk Noktası: Climax

Sinema izleyicisine karşı takınılması gerektiği tavır sinema tarihi boyunca tartışma konusu olmuştur. Film, izleyicisine ne tür bir deneyim sunmalıdır? Onu mutlu mu, yoksa mutsuz mu etmelidir? Filmlerin amacı duyguyu yansıtmak mıdır, yoksa izleyicinin kendi içindekine dokunmak mıdır? Sinema, estetiği itibariyle iyi ve güzel masalsı bir dille mi anlatmalıdır, yoksa bizi suratımıza yumruğu mu patlatmalıdır? Gaspar […]

Klişelerin Başarılı Birleşimi

İsmet Özel “Modernlik insan yaşamına yaraşır bir hayata manidir”[1] der. Bunun Amerika’yı yeniden keşfetmek olduğunu söylemek haksızlık olacaksa da modernitenin bizim yaşamımıza getirdikleri ve götürdükleri sonucunda yaşamımızın aldığı hâlin ne olduğu meselesinin her bireyin zihnini kurcalaması gerektiğini ve kafası çalışan pek çoklarının da zaten kurcaladığını düşünüyorum. Açık olan bir şey var ki bu mesele Oslo, […]

Çeviride Kaybolmak

Böyle söyleyince hangi film hakkında konuşacağımı tahmin edip edemeyeceğinizi bilmiyorum. Ancak bildiğim bir şey var o da Türkiye’de filmlerinin isimlerinin oldukça kötü çevrildiği. Meşhur “filmlerin adı motamot çevrilmiyor, filmin konusuna da bakıyorlar” geyiğini döndürmeye de gerek yok, bu filmi izleyen herhangi biri “Çeviride Kaybolmak”ın filmin konusu bakımından da filmin isminin kelime anlamı bakımından da “Bir […]

[REVIEW] TULSA or A Modern-Day Pollyanna

I’ve said it many times on this site but faith-based films are perhaps the toughest genre of films to pull off. What is a pure and powerful testimony to one may come off as cloying and preachy to another. So often the ministry gets in the way of telling a good story. It is this […]
