Historic Centre (2012)-5/10-> Kaurismaki isn't anything special, he sticks to his usual recipe (if not a bit colder), which is not necessarily something bad.
Costa is disappointing, starting off with some of his usual picturality and continuing with a meaningless and dull part.
Erice is the most accomplished of all, sending off emotions and knowledge to the audience.
Oliveira has no plot whatsoever and it's there just for the sake of the director, probably.
Fortress (2012)-8/10-> One of the best documentaries I've seen in a while, Fortress is a humourous and also dark account of the Transnistrian country. Beautifully shot, very well made and wound together.
Quitting Smoking By Smoking (2012)-8.5/10-> One of the most honest and revealing films about smoking, Quitting Smoking By Smoking is not necessarily very personally made, which makes it even better to watch.
The Man With The Iron Fists (2012)-1.5/10-> The mix borrowed elements, terrible acting and haywire editing make this a really bad film, if not actually the worst of this year so far.
The Perks Of Being A Wallflower (2012)-7.5/10-> It's mostly predictable, but the film has what not most of the films with teenagers have. It has a heart and an ability to actually capture the struggles of adolescence.
Pieta (2012)-6/10-> You might have seen this story in another form, but that doesn't necessarily make Pieta a bad film. It's got some originality and the outcome is great.
