Solid pieces

Bird Box

3.5*/5.0*

Fine mix of horror and thriller elements. Not unlike Shyamalan's The Happening, though Bier's film is as much about the characters as it is about the events unfolding. The narrative structure is a bit forced and it could've been a bit more tense, but overall it's a nice, original take on a concept that's been beaten to death.

Dubious filler

Plain forgettable

Things We Lost in the Fire

2007 / 118m - USA
Drama
1.5*/5.0*

Overly sentimental and grave drama. Benicio Del Toro does a decent job, but he can't prevent Bier from going all out. Overbearing music, leading camera work and a story that gives way too much support to the melodrama. It's clear Oscar bait and it's not even very good at it. If you're looking for anything subtle, avoid like the plague.
