It’s not really a new thing, but in 2018 drama movies seemed to have been even more buried under the never-ending pile of action blockbusters (sequels, reboots and remakes included). Apart from the music-filled “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “A Star Is Born” or – to a lesser extent – “First Man” or “Creed II”, drama films weren’t really a center of… Read more »

Masterpieces aren’t always appreciated in their own time, sometimes it can take years or even decades for them to gain the recognition they deserve, and sometimes they are met with praise but then go on to slowly reveal their genius over the next few decades by quietly influencing almost every subsequent film of the same type. Being ahead of your… Read more »

All great films are personal. They stem directly from the filmmakers, meaning the writer or director. However, certain films come straight from the directors. They can’t make up a story through a fantasy or a period piece, the only option is to use the cinematic language and expression to tell their point of view. Of course, one can do this… Read more »

Let’s make something painfully clear: I’ve never made a movie in my life. I have no idea how hard it is to make a movie but I suspect that if I ever find out, it will probably destroy me. A director has immense pressure upon him, especially when he’s in charge of an expensive production involving numerous talented people. It’s… Read more »

Almost every masterpiece has even a little bit of tension; I wouldn’t call Singin in the Rain a suspenseful film, but… Read more »
