About Me

It's Sonia here and I've been told I get bored of things too fast. Unlucky it is the ugly truth. A Film A Day is my new project and my chance to prove everyone - myself included - wrong. My first goal is posting daily for 365 days - hopefully, I won't give up!

  [31.01.17 UPDATE I haven't given up, in fact, I'm on my way to 1,000 reviews]

I have always had a huge interest in films - any genre - and this my opportunity to share my opinions with the whole world - or a part of it.

Of course, I have other interests besides films, among which football - or soccer for the American friends - stands out. I love photography - in fact, my first blog, still running, was about it - food - another blog as if this one didn't already take away a lot of my time -, and tea.

Now I'm getting to the blog-related part. Please don't judge me, but my favourite movie is American History X. I am not a Nazi (I don't know how many times I've pointed that out), I just think it's a well done and powerful film addressing hate.

[31.01.17 UPDATE Years have passed, literally, and because of new releases and people suggestions, I no longer have just one favourite movie. 12 Angry Men, The Usual Suspects, Seven, Whiplash and La La Land are part of them. And I'm probably forgetting some]

My favourite peps are still pretty much the same. I still love McQueen, Linklater and Iñárritu's works, but there's a new entry, Damien Chazelle. And I still admire Michael Fassbender, Kevin Spacey, Denzel Washington, Edward Norton and Ethan Hawke, although some of their works aren't that good. And then there's the ladies, of course, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone and Sandra Bullock. Jennifer Lawrence used to one of them, but now I'm like nah about her. Dunno why.

I just want to thank each one of you for taking the time to comment, follow my blog or even read it. It really means a lot to me.

  1. You're film a day project is a good excerise for you. You found a trait you wanted to chance or prove to yourself it's not you, so you chose that project. I think you'll make it with style.

  2. Could I suggest some titles you won't find many reviews about?
    One Day In Europe
    Last Stop 174
    I Served The King of England
    Men In Hope
    Caramel
    Daglicht
    The Return (2003 russian)
    Die Welle

    I wathched some surprisingly good movies lately (Like The Little Death, Young People Fucking, Tropa de Elite 1 & 2) but when you look for more you don't find many people talking about them.

  4. Sonia:

    Your site is nicely arranged and your film reviews are honest and helpful. Thanks much for setting out on the journey.

    I also bore easily. It's a blessing and a curse.

    Best of luck,

    Matthew

  6. No joke, we both have a lot of the same fave directors, actors and actresses! I'm obsessed with Michael Fassbender and especially when he partners with Steve McQueen.

    BTW, I love your food blog too!

    1. Thanks, Rachel! I also love when Fassbender and McQueen work together, it's like the best thing ever! And expect to see a very long piece on Michael Fassbender for his 40th birthday.

  7. Wow! Nice to know about you. Even, I too share same interests as you except that in our part of the world it's "Cricket" which is famous unlike soccer. I would love to read more and more reviews from you.
