Disturbing The Peace

A long time since I had seen such a bad movie, not even worthy of a cheap TV movie. Laughing scenario and action scenes, actors playing in tune. What is Guy Pearce doing in this unspeakable galley? And I pass on the very low moral of the hat with the hero who executes the villain at the end, while the latter is disarmed and at his mercy...

The Silencing

The Silencing had everything I love about a movie. There were some unexpected moments, a main character that I loved and wanted to see an element of thriller and some twists. What more could you ask for in a thriller. It was the kind of movie that came out every week in the 90s but nowadays you are lucky if you have one every couple of months and they usually aren’t as good as they used to be. So when I find one as well done as this film it’s a rare pleasure. Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau stars in the lead and he’s a remarkably gifted lead actor. Not only is he naturally sympathetic but it is also very easy to sympathize with him. As mentioned before, I really like a good thriller...

You Should Have Left

Almost 20 years after “Hypnosis”, David Koepp finds Kevin Bacon and reconnects with the genre that made him known. Theo, a man with a troubled past who is looked askance on every time he goes out in public, goes to a secluded house with his wife Susanna, a film actress, and their daughter Ella. Without feeling cramped in this huge house, the small family will quickly feel uncomfortable. Strange impressions, gloomy and violent nightmares, their stay will not be easy. Adapted from the eponymous novel by Daniel Kehlmann, “You Should Have Left” is a psychological thriller that puts the mental health of its characters to the test. Without frightening, even if there are distressing moments, the film is very mysterious and especially holds in suspense until the end. It’s hard not to think of another great film of its kind while watching this almost in camera. What is interesting and makes the story very intriguing is the double reading we can have of what is going on. The character of Theo is perfect for this and well developed. The setting, namely the house, which is an integral part of the story is well used even if we could have had something even more immersive...
