Rating History

Satan's Slaves (Pengabdi Setan)
11 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Satan's Slaves could have been more sophisticated and scarier as it's just solid and never as strong as it could have been, but the characterization is good, the atmosphere is strikingly menacing and the mystery part to it was excellent. It's literally the Indonesian 'Conjuring' for better and for worse as it can be derivative, but also undeniably fun.

Triumph des Willens (Triumph Of The Will)
12 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

How could you possibly rate a monstrous film that is Triumph of the Will? That's an all too futile task. But you can talk about it a lot as it truly does leave a very strong impression. Yes, it's technically very polished, exceptionally edited, and superbly shot and directed, but that made it even more of a harrowing experience for me as it was downright disturbing seeing the real 1934 Nazi Party Congress as it really happened in Nuremberg and captured on screen so vividly for the future to witness. Listening to the speeches was atrocious enough, but seeing the joyous faces from the gathered crowd was even more horrifying. And thus this isn't even a film for me, but a truly horrible moment in history captured on screen forever, and that created an important, but too real viewing experience.

Antonia (Antonia's Line)
12 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Antonia's Line succeeds as a forceful, progressive and very interesting feminist film which gives us the female perspective on life so well through many interesting characters and their relationships. But, as is usual for 90s foreign Oscar winners, it's terribly paced, framed badly with too much narration and it has too many characters and stories that most do not get enough proper attention. It's thus just a solid film, but it had the potential to be so much better.

Apollo 11
Apollo 11 (2019)
12 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Apollo 11 features unbelievably polished, superb real archival footage of this famous mission and following the Moon landing as it really happened and captured on screen really created a fascinating time capsule of a movie. It's thus a very important documentary, but not a great one as the decision to not feature any interviews backfired quite a bit as it led to a too straightforward and less insightful film.

The Navigator
The Navigator (1924)
12 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Beautifully shot, so well scripted and both superbly directed and acted by Buster Keaton, The Navigator is one of his masterpieces without any doubt. I loved the unexpected ending, the underwater scene is a glorious treasure to behold and the entire middle part was excellent. The two protagonists share great interactions and the film is very funny throughout thanks to excellent situational humor and slapstick that utilize its ship setting so well. It is a hugely entertaining flick filled with many instantly iconic, unforgettable moments. The Navigator is most certainly a comedy classic for the ages and an absolute masterpiece of the genre.
