Mute takes an old noir concept and throws in into a tumble drier. The basic plot is one we all know: Leo loves woman, woman disappears, Leo looks for woman. Easy enough, but not in the dystopian world of Berlin, where the criminal network… Continue Reading “MUTE ”
Originally written for Cinemaaxis.com Artemio manages to both be an incredibly natural feeling documentary, one where the fourth wall is rarely if ever broken, and a film that fails to deliver the message intended. A running time of under fifty minutes doesn’t help this… Continue Reading “HOT DOCS: ARTEMIO ”
Originally written for Cinemaaxis.com Music is a universal language. The art of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu, born blind, is more than music; his voice speaks to everyone despite the language barrier, it transcends everything in order for him to sing about his culture, his life… Continue Reading “HOT DOCS: GURRUMUL ”

Alex Garland’s second directorial effort again lands itself in the science-fiction genre, though this time around it is not as easy to explain. The synopsis for the film doesn’t show any of its cards, simply stating that, “A biologist signs up for a dangerous,… Continue Reading “ANNIHILATION ”
While it is no The Room – though nothing will ever come close to that – this is certainly a movie that is hard not to laugh if watching from a bare but nonetheless present critical viewpoint. Based in the era of the Cold… Continue Reading “DRUNKEN REVIEWS: RED SPARROW ”
Taking its cue from Logan, Deadpool and Thor, Marvel have again created a film that is in no way generic, as in, it is not user-friendly trite like most of Marvel’s recent films. They are lame and uninspired, with no stakes on the line,… Continue Reading “DRUNKEN REVIEWS: BLACK PANTHER ”
