‘s eighth episode of its third season remarks a new tipping point in the show’s history. “Bachman’s Earning’s Over-Ride” is one of the strongest episodes of Silicon Valley which brings every familiar detail or running gag together in the best possible way.
Richard is finally the CEO, Pied Piper is finally launched and everything is back on track. There’s only a problem: Erlich was forced to sell his shares of Pied Piper on the lowest point to pay his debts. He can’t tell this to Richard or anybody because the fact that he “sold out” is gonna have…
Disney’s which recently reached $1 billion gross worldwide is definitely one of the most successful animated movies by Disney in the last few years. Before getting to the main subject, I’d like to point out some of the reasons why Zootopia has been appreciated.
In the last few years, Disney/Pixar have experienced a fall. After Toy Story 3, we haven’t seen any other elegant movies with amazing ideas and excellent storytelling that is expected by them. …
Three years ago when I was looking through my movie archive, I found Another Earth.
I remember back then I wasn’t really in the mood for watching a film but I decided to watch a few minutes. I had no idea this incredible independent film is going to be one of my all-time favorite films.
I saw this image when I was a kid. The photograph of Jupiter taken by NASA’s Voyager. Beautiful. But nothing special until shown in rapid succession. Suddenly Jupiter was alive. Breathing. I was hypnotized.
AMC’s prequel to Breaking Bad is not only way slower, it also experiments with new ways to narrate its deep storyline.
When Vince Gilligan announced the spin-off, Better Call Saul, everybody knew that the story is about Jimmy and we are going to review his life and his side of the story to all that made him Saul. But quite frankly no one guessed how is it gonna be. The series pilot starts with a really strong sequence which is probably happening in a time after the Breaking Bad events. …
Dunkirk, the latest Christopher Nolan film, started its principal photography in France last week. The movie is based on the real events of Dunkirk evacuation during World War II. 76 years earlier right on the same current location Belgian, British, and French troops were surrounded by the German army during the “Battle of France”.
The screenplay is written by Christopher Nolan himself and Hoyte Van Hoytema (Interstellar, Her) is the film’s director of photography. Dunkirk is being shot on IMAX 65mm and 65mm large format films which is Nolan’s favorite. Production will proceed in the Netherlands, United Kingdom, and Los…
Nightmares is an elegant short video by Kimia Hendi, centered on a boy playing with his soldier toys. Here’s a link to the video on Vimeo which I strongly recommend you to watch:
Nightmares is a really good effort in experimental video making. The video has been successful to create a great contrast using the sound and the picture. It simply puts you in the right place to observe a really short period of the boy’s day. Nightmares starts and ends effectively with a reasonable rhythm.
Kimia Hendi is a creative artist whom I had the pleasure to work with on numerous projects. She perfectly knows how to visualize a situation and capture it. This short video is also a perfectly visualized story with brilliant use of sound.
Whiplash is a 2014 independent drama about a young drummer facing his instructor. The film is basically one of the most well-shaped music-based films ever. Damien Chazelle, the writer and director, created a great story mixed with strong themes. As a case study of picture composition analysis, I had to review a particular scene from the film which you can find it here although it’s in Persian.
The interesting fact about this movie is that everybody likes it. There are a few people who didn’t like the film. This is not a blockbuster with Hollywood stars nor big production and…
Christopher Nolan has made a short documentary film about the Quay brothers’ works. Quay is an 8-minute documentary that reveals the backstage of animations done by the Quay brothers. The film has been shot on 35mm film by Nolan himself. Zeitgeist Films and Syncopy (Nolan’s own company) recently published a blu-ray collection called “The Quay Brothers in 35mm” that included three stop-motion animations from brothers Stephen and Timothy Quay, along with Nolan’s own short film about their production process.
Only Lovers Left Alive is a visually terrific romance thriller about a vampire couple. Jim Jarmusch has created a stunning universe in which there is a “normal” vampire couple coping with modern times and dealing with their personal problems. There are lots of great references to music, arts, and history among the idea that these people are living on earth for many years.
I don’t want to write a review about the film, I just want to write a quick impression. The film was so steady but also surprising in some moments. The atmosphere of an evacuated Detroit is illustrated…
Asghar Farhadi’s won two important awards at tonight’s closing ceremony of the 69th Cannes Film Festival. Although the movie received mixed reviews after its screening yesterday, it looks like the jury liked it very much. As yesterday many critics emphasized how The Salesman is not Farahdi’s best work and it is not as strong as A Separation or The Past, some of the American critics put it on a higher level in comparison with the other films of the competition.
