“Call Me by Your Name”: An Erotic Triumph

Desire is passed around the movie like a dish, and the characters are invited to help themselves, each to his or her own taste. Maybe a true love story (and when did you last see one of those?) has no time for types. Source: “Call Me by Your Name”: An Erotic Triumph Wenn man das […]

Dunkirk

This is a supreme achievement made from small strokes, a kind of Seurat painting constructed with dark, glittering bits of history. (…) The flying scenes, taut and thrilling, feature real vintage Spitfires.

peaking lights mix

This mix feels like an elaborate dive into a nostalgic 80s/90s movies past. It’s not even reality, not even my own memory. Just a vague reference to a past that I somehow encountered in the present, via cultural products and a trace of what was left before. Although I grew up in Germany during the […]
