Drama Movies [Short Reviews]

Updated 2019-01-20

Here I collect every short review I made on Drama movies. To see another genre look at the index page. You find it here!

I’m the type of persons who hates spoilers, I more or less never watch trailers and don’t want to know anything about the movie more than the basic plot. So in that vein is also my reviews. They are more of short things that maybe can wake someones interest and make them discover the movie themselves.


Antichrist (2009)

6/10

A grieving couple retreat to their cabin in the woods, hoping to repair their broken hearts and troubled marriage, but nature takes its course and things go from bad to worse.

I was hoping for more horror and madness, but okay. More drama than horror in my opinion. I would guess a one time watch for me.

John Adams (2008)

9/10

The life of one of the USA’s Founding Fathers, its second President, and his role in the nation’s first 50 years.

Fantastic mini-series about early America and its road to becoming an independent (from U.K) country and we get to follow the facinating life of John Adams, played by the awesome Paul Giamatti. As his wife Abigail we see one of my favourite actress, Laura Linney.

Life in a Fishbowl (2014)

9/10

Follows three very different people who’s lives become intertwined and affect each other in ways unforeseen. A kind-hearted young mother struggling to stay afloat has chosen a dark and demeaning career to support her daughter, a seemingly worthless trap drinks to escape a horrible past he wants to forget and a success driven business man deals with the morality of corporate fraud. They must accept their past and present choices to help themselves and the people around them.

Fantastic drama from Iceland about pain, sorrow, lost and abuse. Hera Hilmar as the struggling single mother and Þorsteinn Bachmann as the drunken poet are simply awesome in their roles.
