Sailing to Paradise (2014)

I’ve been working as a volunteer at the Festival of Slovenian Film for the past week and Sailing to Paradise (with original title Pot v raj) was sadly just one of two films that I managed to see there. But since it won the Audience Award and because a lot of people asked me what I thought about it during the festival, when I was too tired to adequately form my thoughts, I decided to write a short…

God Help the Girl (2014)

This was one painful watch. I’m really getting sick of all these quirky indie films, where the most interesting and exciting thing on the screen are the clothes/cute vintage look of the protagonists. God Help the Girl is no exception. Stuart Murdoch (a lead singer and songwritter of the Scottish indie pop band Belle & Sebastian) should really get back to writing music and leave screenwriting and…

Mammoth (2009)

The whole film is based on how people from the first world countries exploit the people from third world countries – this exploitation is present almost in every event that occurs throughout the film. I’m not saying this problem shouldn’t be addressed – far from it. The exploitation of third world countries in an important issue, but the way he constructed the story just didn’t work for me. There is not one scene that wouldn’t moralize about how awful humans are and how we deserve to extinct just as dinosaurs and mammoths did in the past. Everything is portrayed in a completely black and white scenario – all privileged white people are capable of bad things if they find themselves in the right circumstances, and all unprivileged, poor people are their innocent victims.
