Berlinale 2017

Here are what i could get my hands on attending Berlinale 2017

  • Golden Exits

    Golden Exits

    ★★★

    Here are some immediate sketches:
    – It was my first encounter with Alex Perry movies, and I am appreciating Berlinale for it. But first i want to get it straight out of my system, that experience didn’t go well because of the wrong aspect ratio for projecting the film; A problem that turned out to be nobody`s fault except us the viewers!
    – Alas , I heard “Golden Exits” is one of the most undermined movies of this festival. From what i saw, It has a great NewYork edge and that talk of the town vibe of ordinariness. It gets intimate from time to time, but fails to live up its premise along the way. Emily Browning as a doll, innocent looking outsider, and her presence among these odd couples with their relationships and midlife crisis, has delightfully reminded me of “Teorema”, displacing that Milanese setting to NewYork and changing the type of bourgeois family.
    – Aesthetically speaking i wasn’t really comfortable with the mise-en-scene of Mr Perry most of the time, specially when Nick(Ad-Rock) and Naomi (Browning) where in that stuffy archive room; That sort of framing didn’t convey any sense of sexual tension to me. Again i have to confess he is more clever when he directs the couples in his master shots.
