This film is nothing to write home about, but every time I see this poster, I see David Letterman instead of Terminator.

A Good Wife (2016)

A good wife is the one who doesn't ask questions, who doesn't know much, who is not interested to know more, who doesn't challenge her husband, family and friends.

A bad wife is the one who is interested to know the truth, even when it hurts the most, because she wants her soul to be pure.

This is a very brave and very important film, coming from a director/actor (Karanović) that most likely did have a problem with jingos and ultranationalists from her country, Serbia, who really do not want to know the truth about their own dark past (from the 1990s).

Film Magistery #7: 12 Years A Slave/A Man in Chains

In the seventh episode of Film Magistery Dino talks about slavery throughout history. The Code of Hammurabi is mentioned, and so is the slavery in Africa, Europe and the United States. And do we have slavery in modern times, here in 2017?
The reference to the concept of slavery is Steve McQueen's powerful fim 12 Years A Slave (2013).
