Josh Radnor is doing a ‘Zach Braff’ by taking time out of being in his hit tv show (How I met your Mother), to write/direct & star in ‘Happy Thank You More Please’. From the trailer alone it contains the same quirky, sentimental & philosophical attributes that made Braff’s ‘Garden State’ such a hit. Looks promising..despite the title
Run Lola, you crazy German
Fast paced and fresh. Tom Tykwer’s iconic ‘Run Lola Run’, is a film that I’ve been meaning to get round to watching for a while now. The film shot writer/director/composer Tykwer to fame, however since then, the likes of his other works, such as ‘The International’ have never made quite the mark that this adrenaline fuelled thriller carved, into both the...

Review: Black Swan
A lot of hype has surrounded Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, none of which is unwarranted; he is currently considered one of America’s hottest directors with a run of consistently thought provoking and immersive films, a run that will be interestingly tested when he takes on his next project, Wolverine 2. Pitted as a ballet drama/ psychological thriller/horror film, Black Swan revolves around the...

Review: Blue Valentine

Derick Martini’s directorial debut doesn’t disappoint. Similar to Baumbach’s ‘Squid and the Whale’, ‘Lymelife’ depicts the life of a dysfunctional family living in suburban East Coast America. Again, similar to ‘Squid and the whale’, the plot is driven by the characters, and the actors who inhabit them, with some standout performances from...
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
ETA Summer 2012
Artistic suspense through simple light and shadow cinematography techniques. ‘Out of the past’ - one of the peerless film noirs.
REVIEW: THE WAY BACK
Peter Weir has to be regarded as one of the most diverse and adaptable directors of modern Hollywood. In opposition to the majority of filmmakers of his generation, Weir has never developed a signature style or motif in his films. In terms of subject and genre he has hopped, with credible ease, from despairing existential comedy to high-brow period adventures. Two of his best and most well-known...
Review: 127 Hours
A left-field film in every sense of the word, 127 Hours marks a sharp departure for Danny Boyle from his award grabbing feel-good film Slumdog Millionaire. It tells the tale of climber/ adventurer Aron Ralston and his subsequent entrapment in a crevice in the middle of the Rockies somewhere. He is faced with a battle against the elements as well as his own conscience – how far will he go to...
One of the greatest British actors of his generation. Rest in peace.
