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]”

HALLOWEEN IS HERE!: BLOOD PUNCH [2014]

Directed by Madellaine Paxson Written by Eddie Guzelian Starring: Milo Cawthorne, Olivia Tennet, Ari Boyland Blood Punch is a nice blend of horror and dark comedy… and romance, as the story revolves around a dangerous love-triangle. The plot seems simple enough, but this film… Continue Reading “HALLOWEEN IS HERE!: BLOOD PUNCH [2014]”

AFF: A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE [2014]

WILD TALES (Relatos salvajes) [2014]

Directed and Written by Damián Szifrón Starring: Darío Grandinetti, María Marull, Mónica Villa I like my comedy dark. I like to laugh and then feel ashamed for having laughed at what I did. This is how I am, I am a sick man. Happily,… Continue Reading “WILD TALES (Relatos salvajes) [2014]”

BLACK SEA [2014]

Directed by Kevin Macdonald, Written by Dennis Kelly Starring: Jude Law, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, Grigoriy Dobrygin Jude Law’s Scottish character in this submarine flick has to be seen to be believed.

NIGHTCRAWLER [2014]

Directed and written by Dan Gilroy Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Bill Paxton Despite knowing almost nothing about it, I have been looking forward to seeing this flick for a good half-a-year. The dark atmosphere of it must have drawn me in, as the… Continue Reading “NIGHTCRAWLER [2014]”
