“Pure Comedy” by Father John Misty

I have to admit that until recently I was never really much into Father John Misty. I had heard of him, of course, but ever since I gave his first record a listen and didn't really like it that much, to me he was just the dude that used to be in Fleet Foxes and … Continue reading “Pure Comedy” by Father John Misty

Wes Anderson’s “Isle Of Dogs”

Is there a better way to start the day than with some good old-fashioned Wes Anderson news? I doubt it. Thankfully, the trailer for his upcoming film "Isle Of Dogs" just dropped, so put down everything you were doing and watch it right this second. Half a year ago, we already got a first glimpse … Continue reading Wes Anderson’s “Isle Of Dogs”

Netflix’s “Atypical”

Netflix has given us many great original series. "House Of Cards", "Orange Is The New Black", "Narcos", "Stranger Things" and the controversial "13 Reasons Why" are just some examples. Over the last months, they've added quite a few more, with one series catching my interest in particular after a while. "Atypical" might not be a … Continue reading Netflix’s “Atypical”

“Love Letters To The Dead” by Ava Dellaira

The books I have read lately all had one thing in common: they were on the darker side. After all, Stephen King's "IT" (I will write about that as soon as the film is out here in Germany), Ian McEwan's "Atonement", Kazuo Ishiguro's "Never Let Me Go" or Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale" wouldn't exactly … Continue reading “Love Letters To The Dead” by Ava Dellaira

“A Bigger Splash” by Luca Guadagnino

In my last post, I wrote about "Call Me By Your Name" by André Aciman and the adaptation that is coming out soon. Today, I am gonna tell you why I was so excited to learn that none other than Luca Guadagnino had adapted it for the big screen. It's not because I have seen … Continue reading “A Bigger Splash” by Luca Guadagnino

“Call Me By Your Name” by André Aciman

It doesn't happen often that the perfect book, at the perfect time, just falls into your hands. To me, it happened just a few days ago. I was visiting my mother (Hi, mum!) for a week or so to spend some time with her, celebrate her birthday (Happy birthday again!) and enjoy the heat and … Continue reading “Call Me By Your Name” by André Aciman

“Atonement” by Ian McEwan

Ever since reading "Never Let Me Go" by Kazuo Ishiguro and watching the film adaptation starring Keira Knightley among others I felt the urge to re-watch "Atonement", the film adaptation by Joe Wright from 2007, once again starring the brilliant Knightley and an equally brilliant James McAvoy. But before that, of course, I had to … Continue reading “Atonement” by Ian McEwan

“In a Heartbeat”

If you spent one second on the internet in these last few days you have already seen the short film I am about to tell you about. If you haven't, please continue reading. "In a Heartbeat" has taken the internet by storm. The short film, written and directed by Esteban Bravo and Beth David, is not … Continue reading “In a Heartbeat”

“Liebe in Zeiten der Follower” von Max Richard Leßmann

So, da bin ich wieder! Der Urlaub ist vorbei und mit ihm die Social Media-Abstinenz. Was habe ich verpasst? Eine ganze Menge anscheinend. Zwischen der ganzen "Game of Thrones"-Hysterie und dem neuen "IT"-Trailer hat Lana Del Rey ihr neues Album veröffentlicht (da könnte ich drüber schreiben) und auch Arcade Fire haben endlich ihre neue Platte rausgehauen, … Continue reading “Liebe in Zeiten der Follower” von Max Richard Leßmann

Roald Dahl

I am sure that everybody, at some point or other, has heard of Roald Dahl. And I am not talking about British kids here, who will know his stories, or at least some of them, by heart. I'm talking about the rest of the world, mostly, of course, Germany, as I am myself a German. … Continue reading Roald Dahl
