The Hurt Locker*** – I’ve never seen the small cinema on the corner of my street that full. 20 out of the 25 places were taken. It’s not a movie good for my nerves but it definitely deserved the Academy Award over Avatar. Thrilling, crazy, drugged.
Alice back in Wonderland** – Eyefood. Very pretty eyefood underlined by a somewhat darker interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s book.
Soul Kitchen** – Good and funny though not the film of the year.
De helaasheid der dingen** – Good, strange and strong movie about a boy who’s growing up with his dad and three oncles who drink more than is good for them and him. He knows that he needs to get out of this rather high-percentage environment; the question is how.
