“Victoria” (“Victoria”), dir. Sebastian Schipper, 2015
Spaniard Victoria, who recently moved to Berlin. She dances in a haze to pulsing techno and meets a group of simple and young guys. Although she has nothing much to do on a cold day and goes to drink beer on the roof of one of the houses nearby and gets close to the guys. As it turns out pretty soon, the guys have a criminal plan for this night and they, without thinking twice, take it into circulation without explaining anything to her. The film is by German director Sebastian Schipper and this film is not just a deceptively simple action that you can’t take your eyes off. This is a film shot in one continuous take on a digital camera on a cold Berlin night in the middle of Europe’s most favored young party-goers city with a techno pulse and actors who smash into a cake. Non-touristic Berlin, unpredictable group dynamics, crime, and shooting. How they can only be imagined inside a gang of desperate losers – everything holds the viewer by the breasts, not allowing them to take a breath. The heart of “Victoria” beats with a rhythm of 120 beats per minute: youth and crime didn’t look so tangible, attractive, and believable for a long time.
The Neon Demon, dir. Nikolai Winding Refn, 2016
Refn’s hypnotic neo-noir, with a leisurely plot about a model on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Meanwhile, Refn is brazenly stolen from the best people who made bloody films, from Argento to De Palma. Hitchcock is reborn in Los Angeles when the inexperienced Jessie. A fantasy-looking orphan embarks on a career on the catwalk and on Hollywood sets. She lives in a hotel on the outskirts with a neon sign. There she meets a nice ordinary guy and conquers everyone at first sight. She has one fake friend and two rivals, but Jessie doesn’t really know them or her life yet. And most importantly, he does not know anything about himself. Booted at Cannes, Refn’s film, in the tradition of ’70s thrillers, is a spoof of the obsolete and senseless gore film genre, without pretending to be anything serious.
