Rust and Bone (De Rouille et d’os) (2012)


“Rust and Bone” belongs to the  kind of movies that leaves you speechless…Realistic to the bone, with cruelty and humanity walking hand in hand, saying only what is needed, to the degree that is needed: The loss of what we take for granted, the shock we face when people around us think in an entirely different way than we do, how shortsightedness may lead to tragedies…An ocean of feelings.

My rating: 09/10

Cosmopolis (2012)

Cosmopolis is not an easy film to watch if its essence is to be understood. David Cronenberg created an allegory of the current western civilization status. The story of the movie teeters between explicitly defining the origins of our world’s troubles and using a symbolic language to say the rest of the story.

Unlike other symbolic films, the story of the film at a first level may be followed. Is not that intriguing though. Its beauty lies in the next level where its real meaning comes to light.
