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…

PAIN AND GLORYU (Dolor y gloria) [2019]

Pain and Glory is more than the title of Pedro Almodóvar’s 2019 film, and more than a simple dichotomy; it is a consistent motif that in the film and is probably the most succinct way to describe human existence, not to mention the highs…

THE LIGHTHOUSE [2019]

To say that The Lighthouse is unique and unlike any film in recent memory is a hard notion to dismiss, whether you enjoyed it or hated it. This nightmare-inducing piece of art is a rarity, a gift from the goddess of film, and as…

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…

JOKER [2019] – ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS AND INTERPRETATIONS (PT.1)

Thanks must go to Keith, who posted his theories regarding the end of the film, and I am essentially expanding on the idea while kinda going in my own direction. Of course everything here is 100% subjective. Spoilers are obviously on the way, however,…

ARCTIC [2018]

Writing a synopsis of Arctic is a simple task: unsurprisingly it is about a man trying to survive in the icy, windy, almost alien world of the Arctic Circle after crashing his plane. Mads Mikkelsen is excellent in depicting such a situation. Unsurprising, Mads…

PARASITE [2019]

  A South Korean family of four are unemployed and need to find work to put food on the table. It is in their desperation that Bong Joon-ho’s latest film Parasite finds plenty of drama, dark humor and social commentary. The first scene sets the tone…

YESTERDAY [2019]

  The simple yet bizarre synopsis of Danny Boyle’s new film is deceptive in what it has to offer. Jack, a struggling musician who realises that no one has heard of The Beatles but him is certainly a quirky hook to draw in viewers….

Framing John DeLorean [2019]

The Back to the Future series immortalised the DeLorean, a car bearing the name of its creator and the subject of Framing John DeLorean. The man behind the car was, to put it lightly, a very interesting character. As a young engineer John DeLorean worked his way…

DESTROYER [2019]

    Nicole Kidman seems to have actively looked for interesting roles for much of her career, from Eyes Wide Shut and Birth to roles in dark films such Boy Erased or The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Here though, the challenge is visual as…
