First-Cow-Perspective: Thou Wast Mild and Lovely

Partially raised on Hitchcock movies – Josephine Decker premiered her directional debut ‘Thou wast Mild and Lovely’ (a movie that Hitchcock himself wouldn’t be ashamed of making) at the Berlinale last Friday. The film’s cast: Joe Swanberg and Robert Longstreet work amazing together, especially when their polarity changes. Sophie Traub’s performance as the frog eating nymphette is outstanding. The DP’s done her job really great, including the unconventional (hopefully not accidental) focus play and the ‘first-cow-perspective’ seduction flashback. Decent cross-genre cinema with a twist, that will keep you thrilled till the end of the movie. 8/10. thou1

Bullet to the Head

Quite all right, Stalone is not allowing him self to perform under a certain level (no matter what the movie is about), which is good even if it results in a medium good film that gives you a bit of this straight to VHS action-movie effect.

The Animals Will Hunt You

A classical family-under-siege-scheme, that has been reproduced many times, with few unconventional viewer pleasing elements, very well made, perfect avoidance of product placement and a great kitchen finale. Gives a nice VHS rental-movie feeling. Watch it!

Not a shirt on my back not a penny to my name…

It was nice to hear C. Mulligan singing again on film. Inside Llewyn Davis is a bit like the folk music in the 60’s you either like it or find it really boring.  I find it quite enjoyable, not much to complain about if you like Cohen brothers’ films.

One shark, 4 Jaws

Hulk Hogan’s daughter, Quinn Mallory’s brother, Carmen Electra and a bunch of well-breasted women are trying to survive an encounter with an unusual shark.

Do not expect Great CGI, sophisticated dialogs and memorable characters. Not as many pairs of naked breasts as expected (less than 10).

If instead of the crappy CGI real machinery would have been used for all the scenes …
