SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR [2014]

Directed by Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez. Written by Frank Miller (screenplay). So here we are: yet another sequel. A surefire recipe for box office success. As the decision has been made to stick to the stark, contrasting black and white colour scheme, to not…

The Homesman [2014]

Directed By Tommy Lee Jones, Written by Glendon Swarthout (novel), Tommy Lee Jones, Kieran Fitzgerald & Welsey A. Oliver (screenplay) Starring: Tommy Lee Jones, Hilary Swank, Grace Gummer, Miranda Otto, Sonja Richter and James Spader Well, colour me ignorant, I didn’t know TLJ had turned…

LILTING [2014]

Directed By Hong Khaou. Written by Hong Khaou. This is the debut feature film for Hong Khaou, and being of Cambodian descent, I imagine this movie may be semi-autobiographical, though that is obviously pure speculation. This interesting little film (running on an insanely low budget…

THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY [2014]

Directed By Hossein Amini, Written by Hossein Amini (screenplay), Patricia Highsmith (novel) Starring: Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, Oscar Isaac The plot and the acting/characters save this movie, as it could have been incredibly bland. To be fair though, it is very much a throwback…

THE ROVER [2014]

Directed by: David Michod Written by: David Michod, Joel Edgerton Starring: Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson A man has lost everything; one begins to wonder why he bothers to keep himself alive in this post-apocalyptic Australian outback. It is a stripped-out world that abandoned him…

Night Moves [2013]

Directed By Kelly Reichardt I thought this one was great. Not fantastic, nothing ground-breaking here, but a nicely shot indie flick isn’t something I’ll turn down. This one was tension filled, though the key to this was its subtlety. What happens next can’t be…

20,000 Days on Earth [2014]

Directed By Ian Forsyth and Jane Pollard Written By Nick Cave, Ian Forsyth and Jane Pollard Any creative person needs to see this. Musician, writer, anything, if this film doesn’t inspire you, then it will surely influence. Personally, Cave’s very frank and fascinating philosophies…

What We Do In The Shadows [2014]

Directed By Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi I wasn’t sure about this one, I cannot remember anything about Flight of the Concords (sp?) and comedy is a sticky thing for me. I find that I laugh out loud more often during dramas, horror, thrillers etc…
