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…

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…

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,…

AFFF: THE BRAND NEW TESTAMENT (Le Tout Nouveau Testament) [2015]

Directed by Jaco Van Dormael Written by Thomas Gunzig, Jaco Van Dormael Starring: Pili Groyne, Benoît Poelvoorde, Catherine Deneuve, François Damiens A girl, Ea, tells us her story. She knows who God is; in fact, God is her father. He invented Brussels as he…

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…

CRUISIN’ ROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE #3

I hope every is having a good week. Happy Friday! 🙂 Those assholes over at AWM posted a great small review of O Brother Where Art Thou?, a Coen film I somehow have not seen yet! This will be fixed. Tom posted a fantastic…

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…

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…

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…

CRUISIN’ ROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE #2

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…
