The Invention of Lying (2009)

Imagine a world where everyone tells the truth all the time. It sounds fantastic doesn't it? Well... not quite... Keep in mind that this means that there are no filters, no flattery, no fiction and no soft landings. Are you Ok with your date letting you know what she will be doing while getting ready as you wait downstairs? Let me tell you, this guy does not know what hit him and it is funny to hear out loud what may go inside a guy's head while on a date. Get ready to watch your favorite film, "the invention of forks" and "The black plague" both historical films narrated by a single person. Yeah, acting is also out of the picture if lying is not possible. Click on the title to read the full review

The Father (2020)

Astonishing and heart breaking performances from Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman. A modern-day masterpiece depicting the fleeting beauty of every minute we fail to appreciate as we don’t fully grasp what we have until is gone. A journey of compassion from both sides of the experience. The story reveals the struggle of a caring daughter as she deals with her father’s dementia. Hopkins takes the audience through the scary journey of how forgetting things can lead to paranoia, as the mind weaves stories from little details of the surroundings in order to make up for the memory gaps. The fear of letting go of the familiar leads this man to fight every attempt to receive help. It really made me think about life and how we take our ability to be present for granted. We spend most of our lives living in fantasy of fears that probably will never materialize, fantasy of things that we want but can’t have. Yet, we spend so little time enjoying the present, without realizing that one day the present may blend with terrifying hallucinations and memories of situations that never happened.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

What if you could erase from your memory an intense love affair or an entire relationship? Would you do it? Would you want to forget? Most people have met that one person who completely changed the way they thought about relationships and love itself. A relationship so full of color that every memory is equally filled with both joy and dreadful pain. The one who made them want to throw caution to the wind and do crazy things. The love that moved so fast and so intensely, it was impossible not to take a leap of faith by jumping right in. This movie invites the audience to wonder what would happen if we erased that memory. Would we ever learn anything from the past or would we repeat the same mistakes? Does ‘the one’ really exist? And if so, how do we know when we found it?. Click on the title to read the full review.

Kick Ass (2010)

Before I proceed, I must warn you that this review contains some spoilers. I absolutely loved this movie because it was unexpectedly funny, dynamic and surprisingly good. The story centers around Dave, a regular dorky comic book geek turned superhero. Dave is a high school student whose only super power is being invisible to girls. Part of his charm is that he is such a relatable character. While the plot seem to be about Dave and his journey into trying to become a superhero, the movie is really about 'Hit Girl.' Who happens to be one of the strongest female superhero character I have seen in a long time. This movie does a great job showing some serious girl power. Click on the title to read the full review.

Joker (2019)

This movie introduces a political dimension to the character of the Joker. In a way, he represents the underdog, those who have been forgotten by society and politicians. The feeling of disenfranchisement is the binding element between the audience and the character. Poverty hits Arthur and his family in many ways and it seems to be partly responsible for his descend into madness. Resentment begins to built up and it drives him mad. So he resorts to living in a world of fantasy, where he can escape the unbearable pain that he is experiencing. The script describes a step by step journey from mild disability into severe mental illness when someone lacks support. Click on the title to read the full review.
