I saw Pina today and I’ve been struggling to write a proper review of it, so I thought I should just provide some overall impressions. First of all, I had no idea watching a dance number could make me cry so much. The level of vulnerability and rawness of those dances, especially Cafe Muller, is astounding and overwhelming. I had never seen dancing like that and I was blown away by every single second of it. The cinematography of the film was spectacular and I love every setting of each dance number. It added so much and was lit in such way that it turned the shots into live paintings. And the music… what a masterpiece of a soundtrack.
It’s a very beautiful and lyrical film that deserves to be watched. And as far as 3D films go, Pina uses 3D to much greater effect than Avatar ever could. If you get a chance to see in theatre please do so. It is truly a unique experience that shows the boundless ideas and emotions we can convey with our bodies.

A couple of minutes ago I finished watching the series finale of Battlestar Galactica and even though I only started watching this show less than a month ago, I grew to genuinely love the characters and pretty much everything about this show. Battlestar Galactica is truly one of the best TV shows ever created and that series finale… was fucking brilliant. It was everything and more than a series finale is expected to be and fucking cried like crazy in the end. So gimme me a sec while I fail to try to handle my emotions…
