(by Simonetta Buffo)

 

Here the last movie by David Lachapelle . I really like it but I’m a little bit confused too! Is it a short movie, a videoclip, a commercial or a fashion film? 341 more words

Blu-ray Review: Frau im Mond

Starring: Willy Fritsch, Gerda Maurus, Klaus Pohl
Director: Fritz Lang
Rating: 7/10

Fritz Lang’s sci-fi movie about a trip to the moon (his last silent film, released in 1929) is a sheer joy for its steampunky visuals, but drama-wise it now seems a bit lopsided, seeing as we don’t actually blast off until 73 minutes into its three hour running time. 615 more words
