BLINDSIDED BY THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH [1976]

The sad death of David Bowie prompted me to watch this flick, which coincidently was already on my list of Blindspot films to watch. Somehow I have never seen a movie featuring the great man, but even more bizarre is the fact that I… Continue Reading “BLINDSIDED BY THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH [1976]”

RAMS (Hrútar) [2015]

Directed by Grímur Hákonarson Written by Grímur Hákonarson Starring: Sigurður Sigurjónsson, Theodór Júlíusson, Charlotte Bøving This film played at a Scandinavian film festival last year and I was angry that I missed it, as I had read high praise from seemingly every critic. I… Continue Reading “RAMS (Hrútar) [2015]”

AFFF: MY KING (MON ROI) [2015]

Directed by Maïwenn Written by Etienne Comar (screenplay), Maïwenn (screenplay) Starring: Vincent Cassel, Emmanuelle Bercot, Louis Garrel Much like Lolo, I doubt I’d have seen this film if it were American. The French seem to do romance in a way that doesn’t feel forced,… Continue Reading “AFFF: MY KING (MON ROI) [2015]”

AFFF: LOLO [2015]

Directed by Julie Delpy Written by Julie Delpy Starring: Julie Delpy, Dany Boon, Vincent Lacoste, Karin Viard A perfect image of how little I know about French cinema – Julie Delpy is a name I had not heard before seeing this. The lady who… Continue Reading “AFFF: LOLO [2015]”

AFFF: DHEEPAN [2015]

Directed by Jacques Audiard Written by Jacques Audiard, Thomas Bidegain, Noé Debré Starring: Jesuthasan Antonythasan, Kalieaswari Srinivasan, Claudine Vinasithamby From the opening scene, we are presented with a strong image; we cant make out many words, but we see men hurrying to throw kindling… Continue Reading “AFFF: DHEEPAN [2015]”

The Alliance Française French Film Festival: 2016

One of my favourite times of the year, we are treated to a huge list of French films, spanning across a range of genres. I have already seen Dheepan and Lolo, and tonight I hope to catch White Knights, a story about a fictional… Continue Reading “The Alliance Française French Film Festival: 2016”

EYE IN THE SKY [2015]

Directed by Gavin Hood Written by Guy Hibbert Starring: Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman, Barkhad Abdi While this is a tense and gripping flick from the opening scenes, I find myself feeling conflicted. While a film about drone warfare is a topic certainly worth… Continue Reading “EYE IN THE SKY [2015]”

What’s been happening in the last week among our beloved community? Chckerd has posted a review of Knight of Cups that seems to be one of the few that align with my liking of the film. Dell has posted a fitting tribute to Malik… Continue Reading “CRUISIN’ ROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE #2”
