20th Century Women....


Greta Gerwig, Elle Fanning, and Annette Bening in Santa Barbara

Got the californian feeling....but the 1970`s (?), were just not there. Life is as much unpredictable like the next decade, and that´s the nice thing with "our" story. Liberating to see an aging movie star without traces of plastic surgery. Elle Fanning (?) ....a star on the rise ! An independent film by Mike Mills.

Sameblod....

Elle Marja (Lene Cecilia Sparrok) stuck between two worlds, and steady like a mountain.

Racism has always an history....especially when elevated to science with state participation. Very dark clouds in Sweden's history and the best film from these latitudes for some years. Directed by Amanda Kernell.

Elvis Costello at Konserthuset....

I remember Costello från the early 1980's. Never really understood his music, and always had the perception that the music and the singing, sometimes, went separate ways ? Anyway....after a bit more than two hours alone on the stage, you have to surrender to this great performer. I was far from understanding all his lyrics, but I had the feeling that he meant what he was singing....(his very deep-brittish sence of humor, not to forget).

Best in show: Watching the Detectives (and the TV-screen)

I, Daniel Blake....


Hayley Squires (Katie) and Dave Johns (Daniel) experiencing a storm of humiliation

The "welfare state" playing catch-22 with its most vulnerable citizens. Not difficult to find the winner of the game. I heard Ken Loach has retired - who will in the future have the guts to wash England's dirty laundry ?

Manchester by the Sea....


Michelle Williams and Casey Affleck (Golden Globe)

When life takes you to the land of sorrow....with no return. A very sad story directed by Kenneth Lonergan.

Elle....


Une histoire banale....mais madame Huppert (Golden Globe) c'est toujours phénoménal.

Toni Erdmann....

Peter Simonischek and Sandra Hüller 

Maybe by stepping out of the role, one may find the absurdity of the play ? A film directed by a young women....a lovely piece of work by Maren Ade and the two above.

Paterson....


"empty pages are a bigger opportunity"

The preference of describing the world, rather than understand it. A very good film by Jim Jarmusch....
