The Matrix 6/25/20
The Matrix is a fired-up fairytale of destined journeys and the fight between good and evil it is a reference-filled religious rambling, which exists only in its own little world but most importantly it is confident in its cool-factor, creative in its world building and playful with its complexity.
Queen of Hearts 6/18/20
Anne is confronted by her husband after Gustav have told his father everything and Anne actually lets out a defeated yes when she is asked about the truths of all this.
In the reality of the film, Arthur is a product of society, but in the realities of filmmaking, the society is a projection of Arthur.

When the film started my first thought was it must have taken forever to cut those waves frame-by-frame coming in over the opening credits anyways, after that, the film threw us right into the middle of a murder, which sets the plot in motion and led me to believe a lot of things, though none of them ended up true.
Inglourious Basterds 5/14/20
I really like this film, because it is so much fun and I find a fair number of scenes to be really great on their own, but with the film itself feeling a little wobbly as a whole.
So as with David Helfgott, the film itself also seems to find its greatest success a little too late and personally I feel very conflicted about such a fascinating story fumbling around in formulaic territory, tiresome clich and all too confident character framework for most of the movie, holding it back from ever truly lifting off the pages and well shine.

It is in a way anonymous but never without personality, and you are easily drawn into the film because there are no fancy film elements to distract you from the story and characters unfolding on screen.
Appropriately to this, Kubrick himself seems to be a little too early out with this film, though it does seduce and provoke in its own way, but in a rather innocent manner, which is ultimately too sweet and harmless to truly trigger my thoughts and feelings, going one way or the other.
