Recent acquisitions

These are the recent acquisitions in Denmark, Poland and online.

I watched Ex Machina and The Social Network before, and to be honest I have not been overly impressed with neither of the works. However, I would like to watch them again.

I was truly impressed with Troell's Everlasting Moments. It is such a great and warm film with a beautiful cinematography. It is a great analysis of one woman's hardship and coping with her difficult and egoistical husband. While watching this wonderful film, the viewer is sent back in time, to Sweden of 1907 and has a chance to experience the life and habits just before the modern times. This if film is not only a historical and ethnographic lesson, but a tremendous introduction to the life of the real woman, Maria Larsson, who despite her difficult life, found the light in black and white colors of photography.

I am looking forward to watch Malick's Knight of Cups, Almodovar's The Skin I Live In, Kurzel's Macbeth and Winterbottom's The Killer Inside Me.
