“Killers of the Flower Moon:” An unhinged epic of greed

In this film, Scorsese returns to show why he is one of the best filmmakers in cinema history with this big-budget epic where no performance goes to waste.

The Wolf of Wall Street: Ten years of Scorsese’s “Citizen Belfort”

I believe that “The Wolf of Wall Street” is the closest we see Scorsese direct a remake of the Orson Welles classic, "Citizen Kane." 

Oppenheimer: or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the IMAX

I'd also like to make a bet here. I will not see a movie this year that is better than this fantastic story that Nolan was able to tell.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3 – Alright, Marvel. Alright.

It looks impressive compared to other modern Marvel movies, as the bar is too low for adequate films to fail.

If I picked the winners: Oscars 2023

Instead of only talking about the possibly fortunate and unfortunate predictions of the ceremony, I decided to talk about my votes.

‘Three Colours: Blue’: A Great Beginning

This is probably one of the most impactful films I have ever watched, and one that everyone else should watch as well.

‘Men’: A Very Hollow Comedy

There is nothing really to say about this movie. It has a short runtime, but it seems to go on forever.

‘The Needle’: in no particular order

‘Marcel The Shell With Shoes On’: no hollow film here

"Marcel the Shell" has such a whimsy that is reminiscent of both Ghibli and Pixar’s greatest hits.

‘Yahha’: As experimental as the Soviet Rock scene

The perfect way to say what this film is in between, but not fully, in the states of narrative film, documentary, or even experimentalism.
