A German teen teetering on the brink of sanity has been doing casual drugs and soon experiences mental wtfery of the time-bending sort.

I am in love with Carolyn Genzkow. So Carolyn if you’re not doing much come around. I’ve loads of recreational chemicals and plenty of progressive EuroHouse to listen to…But bring that ugly mate of yours with you for a threesome.

Fantastic film depicting the horrors of mental illness. Excellent story and special effects. I love the song “Grey Sedan” by Wild Style Lion featuring Kim Gordon that plays over the closing credits. I really like this film. 5 stars.

Another outstanding German film that deals with mental illness is “The White Sound” (2001) starring Daniel Bruhl and directed by Hans Weingartner, his directorial debut. I searched for years online to find a version with English subtitles and finally found one on You Tube on the Zac Waddington channel (the channel has a picture of a purple smurf). Hans Weingartner has made 5 other movies with mental illness as the focus and I can’t find any of them online or even to buy. One of his films that I am dying to see is called “Hut in the Woods” (German title “Die Summe meiner einzelnen Teile”) (2011).

Hey admin
You wrote the best movie comment of all time!
“Guess it’s a good thing she hadn’t
seen some of the movies on here
instead of just a deformed fetus.”

I’ll bet your viewers are thinking,
after 5 years, EUM (born Eamonn Caleb Javier)
must be rolling in the cash, so how
do I get myself some of that cash?
(hint: by writing movie reviews)

(trans How to Write a Movie Review Like a Pro)

1. Common Movie Review Mistakes To Avoid

Avoid writing in the 1st person:
“I like the movie a lot”
“I admired the lead character”
Avoid general statements:
“a fantastic movie”
“beautiful set”
“excellent acting”

2. Useful Tips You Should Consider

Watch the film at least two times
Watch the movie not as a moviegoer
but with an analytic mindset of a
pro movie reviewer

That’s all you need to start you on
the road to a fast paced, glamorous, high
paying world of writing movie reviews!
Zorte on!
(trans Good luck!)

I am writing you from germany and i have to say that in the land of great directors like Joerg Buttgereit or Helge Schneider and FX “professionals” like Olaf Ittenbach and this guy called Schnaas it takes a lot more than some foetus video watch app to “catch” a psychosis.
If you want to loose your mind just visit an average german techno party.
That should do the trick. 😀
