Viewing Pleasure


Viewing Pleasure

So much I love  -

Depending on my mood -


La Dolce Vita


(Those are the obvious ones )

But I can soundly recommend -

1. Hannah Arendt, by the German director Margarethe von Trotta, 2012,

the biopic about the philosopher and political theorist Hannah Arendt,

a courageous woman whose work on totalitarianism is again relevant today

2. "Farewell to Europe", by Maria Schrader, 2017, a beautiful film about the writer Stefan Zweig who fled from Nazism and took his life in Brazil - a relevant story for Europe and the world today, from Bolsonaro's Brazil to Trump's United States

3. Italian movie "Perfect strangers", from 2017, about a dinner party during which seven friends decide to play a dangerous game. All of them place their cellphones on the table and agree to make all texts and calls public in an attempt to prove that they have nothing to hide.

4. "Zabriskie Point" by Michelangelo Antonioni, from 1970, because of California and because of the movie's depiction of the events after the sexual revolution of 1968 - It was the only film Antonioni ever directed in the United States, mesmerizing ending scene:

5. Everyone has been watching the TV series Chernobyl, but better to watch "Stalker" by Andrei Tarkovsky, from 1979, it's art, philosophy and science fiction at the same time
