A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
~ Stanley Kubrick
IN A BETTER WORLD (2010) — What makes the friendship between Christian and Elias so special is how deeply and honestly Susanne Bier displays the emotional side of both children. Only by peering the eyes of the two actors, I can feel the all emotional reasons why they become such small terrorists. YOUNG TÖRLESS (1966) — Violence is not just a physical matter, but also psychological and emotional. In Young Törless, ethical ​​and subjective values ​​were so contradictory. Then the boundaries between good and evil even more vague. PHARAOH (1966) — Faraon is an evocative anatopism, also an astonishing colossal. A truly rare gem of its kind. Not only works as a visual declaration, Kawalerowicz also made it so carefully, so mesmerizing, yet so challenging. THE BOYS OF PAUL STREET (1969) — An ironic allegory not only for the face of war, but also the heart of it: militarism and nationalism. The irony in the end makes the two terminologies be absurd. SPIRITED AWAY (2001) — “What's in a name?” asked Shakespeare. “A name is an identity,” said this movie. MISS JULIE (1951) - Miss Julie is a very challenging study, whether psychological or situational. In a simple but smart way, Miss Julie presents the phases of a political game of love and seduction. MY NIGHT AT MAUD'S (1969) - Éric Rohmer not only talk about choices and risks of choices, there is also a glimpse the importance of choices and the pain of choices. My Night at Maud's, for me, is the most amazing movie about refracting those two opposing aspects of life. TEN (2002) — The use of "dashboard camera" method by Abbas Kiarostami is successfully providing such microscopic spectacle about the characters, not only on outside but also capable of making this movie as a unique character and gender study. THE PARTY AND THE GUESTS / A REPORT ON THE PARTY AND THE GUESTS (1966) — The allegory is not only the great thing about this Czechoslovak New Wave Cinema movie, but also its weirdness, its unnatural behavior, its peculiar plot, but the most of it is about how the movie smartly move without caution. ELEPHANT (2003) — Elephant is a piece of work that should be commended for its bravery. Such compliments are mainly intended to for Gus Van Sant's guts on using such non-linear and unusual narrative spectacle. Also packed with such unnatural risky styles which was really cost lot of guts.

Possession

TULISAN INI MUNGKIN MENGANDUNG SPOILER!
Oleh: Rio Johan (Rijon)
Sutradara: Joel Bergvall & Simon Sandquist
Pemain:
Sarah Michelle Gellar, Lee Pace, Tuva Novotny, Michael Landes, Chelah Horsdal

Tahun Rilis: 2009

Film ini merupakan dibuat berdasarkan sebuah film Korea Selatan, Addicted (2002) karya Park Young-hoon.

Jess (Sarah Michelle Gellar) punya kehidupan yang nyaris sempurna: pekerjaan mapan & suami yang selalu romantis setiap saat. Bayangkan saja, secara berkala suaminya, Ryan (Michael Landes), mengirimi surat cinta, menyusupkan bunga, bahkan bercinta, tentunya. Dengan mengesampingkan ketidaksiapan Jess untuk mempunyai anak, satu-satunya benalu dalam kesempurnaan hidupnya adalah kehadiran Roman (Lee Pace), saudara Ryan yang terkait kasus kriminal yang numpang tinggal di rumah Jess. Roman berbadan lebih besar daripada Ryan, lebih sangar, punya tatto besar di lengan, dan tidak pernah tanggung menampar pacarnya sendiri, Casey (Tuva Novotny). Kehadiran Roman selalu membuat Jess merasa nyaman (ketika Roman muncul ketika Jess dan Ryan sedang bercakar-cakaran di dapur, misalnya).

Situasi yang dihadapi Jess berubah 180 derajat ketika sebuah kecelakaan di Jembatan Golden Gate, mobil Roman, yang mau kabur dari kediaman Jess, dan Ryan, yang bergegas pulang mendengar kabar tersebut, bertabrakan. Keduanya terdampar di rumah sakit, keadaan Ryan lebih parah dari Roman. Ketika Roman bangun dari koma, mendadak dia seakan-akan memiliki ingatan Ryan. Mungkin sebagaian besar penonton bakal mengira benar-benar jiwa Ryan lah yang terjebak di dalam diri Roman. Dan Jess, yang sedang dilanda depresi besar-besaran, tentu tertarik menyelidiki apakah benar Ryan berada di dalam diri Roman. Sungguh di sayangkan, film ini malah berakhir dengan twist yang sangat-sangat tidak menarik.

Possession dibesut oleh dua sutradara Swedia, Joel Bergvall & Simon Sandquist, yang sebelumnya menelurkan Den osynlige (yang kemudian di-remake menjadi The Invicible). Keduanya membubuhkan sountrack dan sound effect dengan tujuan membangun tensi. Digabungkan dengan sinematografi menawan, dan chemistry yang terbangun antara Sarah Michelle Gellar dan Lee Pace. Sayangnya, skenario film ini lah yang tidak terbangun dengan baik. Film seakan-akan cuma berputar di situ-situ saja, dan pada akhirnya malah membuat tokoh utama sendiri kehilangan simpati dari penontonnya.
