That Bitcoin Wave

That Bitcoin Wave

Just look at how long it stayed steady until that one rise! I wonder what caused it - apart from an overblown demand and promise. I wonder what caused the fall - apart from the realization that such was the case. And I wonder if now's the right time to invest, or if it might fall further first...

It might fall all the way, too. You never really know.

Fun Fact #4

Not as fun as the last one though...

Musicalish #260

The Last Internationales. They're a little band from New York, come to Gröna Lund for the first time ever this summer - on their first ever trip to Sweden, too! If you ever have a chance to see them live: take it. They're so much better then. This won't do them justice but here's a slice of theirs...

Tjuvjakt. Hip hop group from Sweden. I went to their concert this year. They were pretty good! Already posted some of their more popular stuff before, but here's some more...

Red Sparrow (2018)

Red Sparrow (2018)

Spy movie romance done right? Here you go! It's not the light-hearted Bond type of romance, mind you, but one with deceit, and compromise, and manipulation... and yet in the end it's surprisingly pure even through the veil of perversion.

It's Russia versus America again, told from an obviously American side, based on a book written by a CIA agent, with few actors who really pass as Russians. Still I'm impressed. They go all out. They get naked. They get serious. They get psychologically tortured and seduced and turn things to their advantage.

It's a sad but often also 'aha' or 'woah'-inducing movie, and I'm impressed with Jennifer Lawrence's performance in particular! She might've sounded more Russian than all the other Russian-American actors and actresses she competed against (apparently it took four months of preparation), and she really goes all out in her role. I'm not as happy with Jeremy Irons, but most of the cast are great. Joel Edgerton and Matthias Schoenaerts in particular fit their roles perfectly.

It's really not a happy movie but: very well-filmed. Beautiful work. It's long. It takes its time to set things up and break them down. It takes a couple IMHO clever turns - though some critics apparently saw those right away.

Obvious plot twists or no I'm surprised with how low a rating this has on IMDB. It felt genuine, to me, and captivating from start to finish. A bit cold and coated yes, just like Atomic Blonde, but in difference from the former it's more thriller than action, and the filming's thorough. What's there to complain about? The propaganda, maybe, though there are way higher-rated movies with way more of that too. Give credit where it's due.

This was crude, brash and casual, yet smooth - chasse all masterful. No matter if it's all factual or not it's class is actual and Jennifer sure can act the role. As it's a movie I don't wish to bash at all I will unlike a Neanderthal rate it highly, and act sophisticated sipping my tea. Red Sparrow... small but strong-willed, winged and mighty, like the country, I like thee.
