LAST AND FIRST MEN [2020]

As this film finishes, one feels that no words can justly convey the unsettling beauty this unique piece of art possesses. Directed by the late Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, it may have been considered unfinished at the time of his death but the editing… Continue Reading “LAST AND FIRST MEN [2020]”

French Film FESTIVAL: DEERSKIN (LE DAME) [2019]

Quentin Dupieux has never been one to shy away from absurdity, most of his work lavishly bathing in it as if there is nothing strange to be seen. This is the attitude that the film and it’s protagonist absorb: despite the consistent weirdness, both… Continue Reading “French Film FESTIVAL: DEERSKIN (LE DAME) [2019]”

HARPOON [2019]

  Harpoon is director Rob Grant’s most conventional film of his decade-long career given his past experimental approach to film-making. Harpoon is hardly experimental and therefore much more accessible, though it retains the staunchly independent qualities that define his work. This latest effort possesses… Continue Reading “HARPOON [2019]”

THE PAINTED BIRD [2019]

Original review written for Cinemaaxis.com Not unlike Pasolini’s ‘The 120 Days of Sodom’, The Painted Bird film will be known by some as ‘that three hour child torture movie’, ‘child torture porn’, or a similar, basic summary along these lines. I hope I am… Continue Reading “THE PAINTED BIRD [2019]”

THE GENTLEMEN [2019]

As always, thanks again to Courtney:   Guy Ritchie’s The Gentlemen signifies a return to the crime-laden and humourous style that originally established his career. Save for Matthew McConaughey’s criminal protagonist ‘Mickey’, who hails from the US in a very odd and out of… Continue Reading “THE GENTLEMEN [2019]”

TIFF 2019: LOVE ME TENDER

As always, many thanks to Courtney of Cinemaaxis.com. Still living with her parents, Seconda hasn’t left the house in nine months. After her mother dies in front of her eyes, her father taking flight soon after, she is thrust into a situation that she… Continue Reading “TIFF 2019: LOVE ME TENDER”

TIFF 2019: RAF

As always, many thanks to Courtney of Cinemaaxis.com. A coming-of-age story with definitive art-house qualities, protagonist Raf is clearly intelligent and creative, a girl in her mid-twenties who is trapped by her lack of confidence and severe inability to be assertive. That is, until… Continue Reading “TIFF 2019: RAF”

Hot Docs 2019: Assholes: A Theory

Originally written for Cinemaaxis.com A quirky and unique documentary with its tongue firmly in cheek (solidified by the presence of John Cleese), Assholes: A Theory is quite literally a study of the personality trait of being an asshole. Starting with social spaces and workplaces, the film branches… Continue Reading “Hot Docs 2019: Assholes: A Theory”
