it’s about to put an end on 2021. same as 2020, i don’t think anybody likes it. over a year, i watched about 300 films, this 10 films are my selection for this year. listed in no particular order.
a documentary film telling a story about the person ‘doc’ who saved polaroid films: he is a very romantic person he loves every means of analogue. this is a gift film to every polaroid fan, and it’s shot on 35mm film.
won’t watch it again.
classic cult film, i finally watched it this year. it reminds me of some reality issues. what will i do if i have absolute power? like in the cultural revolution, ways of torment are never enough, to keep alive, sometimes have to swallow something not very good.
also camera behind the camera.
north korea is also a socialist country. some people are trying to get out of there, but documentary people trying to get in there. to get the truth, they have to help the government lie first.
every sunset i feel over of a day.
l always want to live in the 80s as a 20-year-old, or in the 90s as a teenager. 1 only lived in the 90s for 3 years, and i don’t have any memory of it. this film brings me back to my childhood, in the early 2000. although we don’t have skateboards, but the same thing is, i like to play with older kids.
normally, i don’t like costume dramas, due to the logic of ‘there should not have any cameras in that period of time’ but this film is a watchable one for me. the cinematography is good, and the story is basically a road film.
i watched all wes anderson films this year. and this one is at london film festival. this film is very hard to follow, because of my slow reading of small subtitles. but his film is always eye candy.
do not move the camera.
this documentary, i can imagine how difficult to shoot, every frame is steady, with no handheld shot. without this, this film does not look like a documentary at first sight. two autistic people getting married, sweet story. and I don’t know, how to work like this, i will be afraid to lose a lot of stories.
animation documentary is a thing!
i was thinking about ‘is real really exist in documentaries’, then the question became ‘does real exist’ before i saw this film. i don’t know if it’s talking about this question too. i am glad i have the same question as this director.
if i run into them, maybe nothing would happened.
unique story, 6 brothers never left the apartment in their lives. they know the world from films, and they remake it at home, with very fancy homemade props. this director was wandering on street one day, she saw the brothers dressing like reservoir dogs, the very first time they go out of their apartment, then she made way to get into their life. luck really matters.
“you are tearing me apart, lisa!”
the first film i saw in london cinema, never seen it before, but i know this through the film disaster artist. it is bad, but also cool in some ways. and this is the best cinema experience ever, people laugh as loud as they can, quoting the lines, very fun. films should belong in the cinema.
