The Heart is a Drum Machine

Directed by Christopher Pomerenke, The Heart is a Drum Machine is a fascinating documentary consisting of compiled interviews with accomplished scientists, musicologists, musicians, actors and other people who either study or make in different forms music, reflecting on their distinct perceptions of the essence of music. I really enjoyed listening to all the participants points of views, and as a music fanatic, reflecting on my own. I think it's a question that people who love, collect, and think of music as more than entertainment often discus. So it was nice to have someone actually go deeper and compile the answers from interesting different points of view. Really enjoyed it.

Everyone Else

Was taken by Maren Ade's work in Everyone Else. The film gets really close to a couple, examining their relationship over days spent on a summer holiday on the island of Sardinia. It explores a certain identity crisis of gender and cultural roles of a modern relationship between an architect and a rock record label publicist, and to what extent cultural pressures and personal notions of success and happiness define self-esteem and confidence. Although the moral of the story might be “don’t change who you are or who you love because that’s what is expected,” it also examines the psychological struggle to challenge cultural expectations. The emotion and tension throughout the film was very natural and subtle, and really loved the casual dark humor of the ending with what I believe was the most ironc choice of song - Paul Bryan's Listen.
