• On a literary case

    22 August 2019

    Both exciting and scary is the experience of watching a movie based on a book (or comic book) because you don't stop looking for discrepancies with the source material. Well, whoever loves this type of adrenaline, go set an alarm for the next three movies approaching.
  • Right in the Nine: Quentin Tarantino

    8 August 2019

    On August 16, our screens will finally be broken by the caption "Quentin Tarantino's 9th movie." You know it is Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood, and that the faces of the poster go into a nostalgic-aggressive story about the end of the golden era of cinema.

    John Cleese himself, as a part of the comedy group Monty Python, is rarely serious. He is the first man, who said the word "sh*t" on British television and also the man who says goodbye to one of his best friends on a funeral with the word "f*ck". His attitude stays the same with his stand-up Last Time to See Me Before I Die, which comes here in September at the National Palace of Culture.
  • A trailer from Cannes

    30 May 2019

    This is how, right now, we're looking at the new cinema that will come on a screen near you later this year. For some you've heard - Tarantino will bring us back to 1969 with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Almodovar shows Pain & Glory with Banderas as an old director, and Malick brings us to A Hidden Life. In the shadows of those big ones though, let's not forget the other ones that shine just as bright.

  • What we didn't know about... Yorgos Lanthimos

    31 January 2019

    Some say that this Greek director is the new Bergman - because of his generous slow footage; that he is the new Lars von Trier - because of the violence in front of his lens; or that it is the new Michael Haneke - because of the silent shock you live with when you exit the cinema. In fact, Lanthimos is great because he's mostly like himself. Because of this are his recent ten Oscar nominations, including best director. His previous films - The Lobster, The Killing of a Secret Deer, Dog Tooth - pull us  in the subconscious just as strongly as his last one, The Favourite. Right before its' premiere in Sofia, we lay out for you a couple of things about Yorgos.

  • Speak the Truth

    8 February 2018

    Awards in laurel twigs, Oscar nominations in numbers, top actors in closeup and in CAPITAL LETTERS. All these are the hooks that movie posters use to get us to the theatres and we bite, even though we have no idea what kind of movie we are actually about to see and despite the feeling that we might not agree with the Academy... again.
