The Best Film You Missed Last Year: Snowpiercer

  Beware! Spoilers Ahead! It is unlikely many will have managed to catch Snowpiercer due to a disagreement between director Bong Joon-ho and The Weinstein Company which resulted in a minimal release for the film. This is made all the more unfortunate due to the fact that, in my opinion,  Snowpiercer is […]

Birdman Review: Dark Laughs in Theatre of Broken Dreams

The tale of a faded  star swimming desperately against the tide of age and anonymity is depicted to innovative effect in Iñárritu’s brilliantly bizarre  Birdman.

Interstellar – Review

The weight of expectation is interesting.  To look back over the last fifteen years and see just how far Christopher Nolan’s career has come – from shooting a low-budget thriller with his mates in London to fiddling around with $165m – is pretty incredible.  With wildly ambitious and interesting films like […]
