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.

Sutradara: Wim van der Linden
Pemain: Laura Klein, Henk Kort

Tahun Rilis:

Rape adalah sebuah film hitam-putih 10 menit tentang keluguan, kesucian, hasrat, gairah, dan penodaan, yang kesemuanya itu dihadirkan dalam sebuah kisah singkat. Nyaris tidak ada dialog di film yang berbau dan bernuansa teaterikal ini (kecuali sebuah teriakan dan kicauan burung). Seorang tengah biarawati (Laura Klein) berjalan-jalan di hutan, menikmati pemandangan hutan, kicauan burung, dan mengelus-elus sebuah jamur yang bentuknya mirip penis–menandakan sisi penasarannya perihal sesuatu yang berbau-bau seksual. Sang biarawati sama sekali tidak menyadari sosok jahat yang membuntutinya. (Henk Kort). Ketika saat naas itu tiba, sang biarawati pun diperkosa di semak-semak. Adegan pemerkosaan ini digambarkan dengan gaya yang cukup unik (sekalipun bukan cara yang baru). Adegan pemerkosaan tidak benar-benar ditunjukkan, tapi ditandai dengan pakaian si biarawati yang dilempar dan semak-semak yang bergoyang. Dan pada akhirnya, sang pemerkosa muncul, dalam keadaan kelelahan, lalu berjalan menjauhi layar perlahan-lahan.
