During my art project of drawing kitchen scenes from movies I became more and more fascinated of Michael Haneke’s 2012 drama AMOUR and the extensive depiction of elderly life in the apartment.
After half a year of waiting for the dvd from the library Liisa finally gets to see STAR WARS: FORCE AWAKENS.
After a long wait Aharon and Liisa finally get to sit down and discuss László Nemes’s magnificent sonderkommando portrait in SON OF SAUL.
Aharon and Liisa travel from South Korea to Spain to look at two murder mysteries, one being the southern thriller LA ISLA MINIMA and the other humorously entertaining true crime story MEMORIES OF MURDER.
While still in Finland, Aharon and Liisa take on Aardman Animations 2015 stop motion movie SHAUN THE SHEEP MOVIE and manages to transform the naive and funny ride into an exploration on the banality of evil.
Aharon and Liisa meet up in Finland with special guest appearance by Merel Gebruers to discuss Spike Jonze’s psychoanalytic adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are.
Aharon and Liisa continues their South Korean tour with probably the most darkest entry so far, Kim Jee-woons cold blooded serial killer thriller I SAW THE DEVIL.
Finally Aharon gets to sit down and open up about one of his hardest dilemmas about a movie in recent years, the fact that he didn’t like Bong Joon-ho’s acclaimed SNOWPIERCER as much as everyone else appear to do. He brings the question in front of Liisa who hopefully can help him solve the problem of swimming upstream.
Can a specific actor do such an outstanding performance that the rest of the movie would feel mediocre in comparison? Or can a movie be so well grounded in its own craft that an oscar winning performance can end up feeling off from the rest? Aharon and Liisa tackle the reactions left by Steven Spielberg’s 2015 spy drama BRIDGE OF SPIES.
Aharon and Liisa concludes their series on vampires with the movie that comes closest to the traditional gothic vampires, Roman Polanski’s comedy FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS.
