Shimmer Lake ^ Chronological Order and Ending Explained

Directed by Oren Uziel, Shimmer Lake is one of the new additions in Netflix this June, with some degree of success among the viewers thanks to its kind of unusual way to tell the story.

Shimmer Lake relates the series of events that takes place after a bank robbery in a small town in northern USA. The funny thing is that these facts are presented on the screen in a reversed chronological order. The film begins on Friday, the moves to Thursday, then Wednesday and finally we are told what happened on Tuesday, the day of the robbery.

Although all the elements of the film are well within the average standard for a Netflix Original, including performances (except perhaps Stephanie Sigman and Benjamin Walker), the interesting thing about this film and what it is worth analyzing and explaining is the chronological order of the facts. So. let’s do it.

Loev (Indian Film) ^ Explained & Dissected

One of the new additions to the Netflix library this May is one of the most controversial pieces of the Indian Cinema. Directed by Sudanshu Saria, Loev is at the same time a road film, a love story and of course, a lgbt flick.

Although the movie’s plot is quite easy to follow, once you reach the end of the film, the usual feeling for the average viewer is confusion. There is so much on the character’s behavior and attitudes that does not seem to fit, or at least, that is hard to understand that one or two hours later you find yourself thinking about their motives.

In this post I will attempt to analize and explain Loev, specially through a emotional dissection of its characters. Of course that will be my personal opinion, if you find another, I will be more than happy to read it on the comments section. Let’s do this.

Alien: Covenant ^ Explained & Dissected

There is no doubt that Alien: Covenant is one of the best films of 2017 so far. However, as a part of an extended universe, sometimes the film is hard to follow, specially if you never got the chance to see the adventures of Sigourney Weaver and the Xenomorph in the 1980s and the 1990s. And even harder in the case you missed the 2012 Ridley Scott’s feature Prometheus. So, if you needed some answers for the questions you probably asked yourself during the movie, you are in the right post. Get comfortable, because we are going to explain and dissect the lastest installment of the Alien Universe called Alien: Covenant. Spoilers Alert.
