MARRIAGE STORY [2019]

Noah Baumbach returns to the subject of divorce after first exploring the premise in The Squid and the Whale (2005), albeit from a different perspective both within the film and himself as a writer. His new offering centres around a couple who are on… Continue Reading “MARRIAGE STORY [2019]”

JOKER [2019] – FINAL THOUGHTS

PART I PART II PART III Stupidly, I forgot to post this before I went on a holiday. Well, I say holiday, in reality I didn’t leave the state. But any 10-day vacation away from the ghetto I live in is a holiday in… Continue Reading “JOKER [2019] – FINAL THOUGHTS”

I LOST MY BODY (J’ai perdu mon corps) [2019]

  The second half of this year has seen Netflix firmly establish itself as a home for quality independent films as well as larger picture’s such as Scorsese’s The Irishman or The Coen Bothers last film. I Lost My Body is an art-house animated… Continue Reading “I LOST MY BODY (J’ai perdu mon corps) [2019]”

KNIVES OUT [2019]

Knives Out is a gleefully silly game of Cluedo that revels in its absurdity, never taking itself seriously, asking us to play along in Rian Johnson’s funny whodunnit tale, Johnson’s love-letter to Agatha Christie. The central characters are brilliant, all sensationalised in this light-hearted,… Continue Reading “KNIVES OUT [2019]”

JOKER [2019] – ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS AND INTERPRETATIONS (PT.3)

PART ONE PART TWO Arthur Fleck: “For my whole life, I didn’t know if I even existed” The Joker: “I don’t believe in anything” While there are other moments, these two lines are the clearest in presenting the nihilistic streak of Arthur’s personality, long… Continue Reading “JOKER [2019] – ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS AND INTERPRETATIONS (PT.3)”

JOKER [2019] – ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS AND INTERPRETATIONS (PT.2)

PART ONE Early in the film, it isn’t hard to picture Arthur as a harmless mother’s boy, albeit a little nuts of course. “I’m not supposed to have a gun” is his hushed response when he is given a gun ‘for protection’ by his… Continue Reading “JOKER [2019] – ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS AND INTERPRETATIONS (PT.2)”

AD ASTRA [2019]

James Gray is one of the few directors in Hollywood, or perhaps on the skirts of Hollywood (his films do feature big name actors) who makes films for himself and anyone who happens to enjoy it, refusing to cater to popular taste. Indeed, this… Continue Reading “AD ASTRA [2019]”

THE NIGHTINGALE [2018]

A major step up in scope for Jennifer Kent after her excellent debut film The Babadook, this sophomore effort is a brutal, bloody but historically honest look into both the life of women and Aboriginal People during a period in Australia’s history that is… Continue Reading “THE NIGHTINGALE [2018]”

DANGER CLOSE: THE BATTLE OF LONG TAN [2019]

As always, many thanks to Courtney of Cinemaaxis.com. “To military historians, it is hugely significant, a demonstration of Australian grit and determination in the face of insurmountable odds. But to the general public it barely registers.” As a result of this, The Battle of Long… Continue Reading “DANGER CLOSE: THE BATTLE OF LONG TAN [2019]”

WEATHERING WITH YOU (Tenki no ko) [2019]

A young high school student, Hodaka Morishima, is running away from school and is heading to Tokyo.
