    I've watched L'invenzione di Morel (Emidio Greco, 1974), an adaptation of the novel of Adolfo Bioy Casares and described by Jorge Luis Borges as the perfect novel.
    Sadly I've seen the bad quality version that I've found on the web (but there are english subtitles, for those who are interested), but it's definitely a movie I will not forget.
    Probably the best "science fiction" made in Italy, but to say that it's a science fiction movie is not entirely correct. It's a movie about loneliness, memory and love... and it's difficult to describe it without spoilers. Fascinating and metaphyisical as a De Chirico painting.

    I hope to find a DVD or a Blu ray of it, because I want to watch it again and it's a movie I want in my collection.

    Recently I've watched Hostiles which I liked very much. Also the professional critics in the Netherlands are very positive about this movie but I noticed that the movie has been received lukewarm in the US itself. I wonder why this movie isn't liked so much by the Americans..?

    I watched Red Eye (2005) by the master of horror movies Wes Craven. This was no horror but a thriller. Average movie
    2.5/5

    I also watched Suburra (2015), an Italian crime thriller about mafia. An excellent movie.
    5/5

    It was quite good I thought too. One of the few movies I feel I might buy a copy of after watching. I've lost faith in the American film critic system, but it was overall well received on Rotten Tomatoes in this case.

    Probably the best Western I've seen since Hell or High Water.

    COSMOS (2015, FRANCE)

    To quote the film: "Blanditude".

    Intellectual claptrap.

    A student who has just failed his bar exam and a fashion student failure rent out a guesthouse run by rather peculiar folk.
    In the woods nearby they come upon a sparrow hanging from a thread above the path.
    This fecks-up the law student.


    Lotta overacting. Most likely necessary to the director.

    Superb.

    You've piqued my interest there. I'll have to see this Hostiles movie now.

    THE QUIET ONES (2013, UK)

    If any of you are following my horror reviews on this thread then doubtless by now your thinking this Deacon fellow enjoys stabbing his own groin with a dull impliment.
    Well, this film is an exception. It is rather GOOD.


    Hammer films makes a long-awaited comeback, but unlike 70s Hammers this is not a monster film - or at least the monster here is not a prominent feature - a 5000 BC Summerian demon only makes itself evident at the very end of the film.

    The story is a 1974 Oxford professor debunking the supernatural, joining with 3 of his students to cure a disturbed woman and scientifically prove she is not possessed but suffering from her own mind's making. The "experiment" is rough on the patient and the students begin to recoil from the depths that this professor is willing to go. In other words, a psychological-type horror movie, unlike most Hammers we are familiar with.

    I have a strong feeling that the person who made this film was inspired by the '72 horror flick, "Legend of Hell House". Both films are concerned with science vs the supernatural. Both have the main protagonist as the possessed woman who is extremely depressed ,dangerous and self-mutilating. (And the actresses look rather the same!) Both have a very sparse soundtrack, if any. This sparseness heightens the believability and intensity - and this IS one intense film. ("Hell House" of course had BBC Radiophonic Studios luminary ,Delia Derbyshire providing the "soundtrack" which was mere electronic-generated errie drones and noises suggesting (hidden) cosmic forces moving slowly and massively.)


    Oh yeah - at the end a cover of Hawkwind's "Silver Machine" is played to the credits! No idea what this has to do with the film.

    Also, no idea what "The Quiet OneS" title has to do with the film.
    Nobody is quiet and if it refers to the supernatural, well its not plural - at the end its made clear its just the single demon-thingy.
