  • What we look for in Oscar-winning performances - and what we should look for instead

    Did Leonardo DiCaprio really deserve that Oscar? Who should win this time? The lead Actor and Actress race is a cosmic event that will determine nothing less than the fate of the entire human race. Honestly, it doesn’t feel like that much of an exaggeration.

  • The Green-Light | My long, torturous relationship with Trainspotting

    Everyone I’ve spoken to seems to love Trainspotting, and so they should. But twenty-one years after its first release, approximately ten years since my first viewing of it, and two months since my re-watch, why don’t I love it too?

  • New Doctor Strange images show off the film's weirder side

    Who’s looking forward to Marvel’s Doctor Strange? Everyone, it’d seem – and to anticipate the film’s release only a while away, Disney / Marvel Studios have released some images from the movie. Although many of them are stills which reflect a slightly different perspective from shots in the two already-seen trailers, there are close-up glimpses of Mads Mikkelsen’s character Kaecilius, and images which show off the film’s propensity for weirdness when it comes to magic.

  • Jared Leto joins Blade Runner sequel - and we're not angry about it

    Jared Leto has gotten his share of bad publicity in the past year: stories from the set of Suicide Squad about his method shenanigans, plus the mixed reception of his take on the character of the Joker in the eventually released cut of the movie, plus the negativity toward his opinion that he was ‘tricked‘ into doing Suicide Squad in the first place. And now it’s been announced that Leto has been cast in Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming Blade Runner sequel.

  • Cocoon - Review

    For the USA, Ron Howard is a national treasure. For the rest of the world, he’s an absolute crowd-pleaser: films like Splash have marked him out as a master of light entertainment, while Apollo 13 had the awards klaxon calling. This success has been thanks in no small part to his level of filmmaking craft, and a sensibility for creating images that linger in pop culture. Like his contemporary Robert Zemeckis, he can take a familiar subject and breathe fresh perspective into it. In Cocoon, the question of old age is given a supernatural spin – but the 1985 film film simply lacks the storytelling chops to lift it to the classic heights it needs.

  • The Hard Stop - Review

    There are always two sides to one story, but in the case of Mark Duggan’s death at the hands of police in 2011, the story is downright multi-faceted. The event triggered the London riots that same year, reflecting a portion of the country that was at once voiceless and furious. The question of lawfulness concerning Duggan’s shooting has reverberated through black communities since, and with the consistent senselessness America is currently going through, it’s a wound that feels as sore as ever. You may already have a stance on the subject, and no matter what that perspective is, George Amponsah’s The Hard Stop is essential viewing.

  • Weiner - Review

    Weiner is an unfortunate name. For the politician who owns it, he’s had an even more unfortunate life; a while after Anthony Weiner first came to prominence thanks to a video of him heatedly tackling his GOP colleagues in 2010, in a wincingly poetic sweep of irony, a photo of his own Anthony W. leaked and also went viral. His political career potentially in tatters, he didn’t let the sex scandal prove to be a setback for him; he and his wife Huma Abedin, herself an advisor to Hillary Clinton, and perhaps the most miraculously forgiving woman in history, teamed together for Anthony to run for mayor of New York.

  • Notes on Blindness - Review

    Blindness, like Pete Middleton and James Spinney’s new film describes, is a world of its own. Keeping one’s eyes closed isn’t nearly enough to get inside the mind of someone whose sight has left them entirely, for the taking away of one sense is only a part of it. For theologian John Hull, blindness was like entering a new landscape, both eerily familiar and frighteningly alien, but by recording his experiences of losing his sight on reams upon reams of cassette tape, he worked toward understanding his condition so it would never consume him. Released a year after his death, Notes on Blindness not only draws from these recordings but ingeniously builds the entire movie around them; the result is a quietly profound peek inside an alternate universe of sensation, and how its sole occupant navigates everyday life, and above all, strengthens himself on the extraordinary power of family.

  • An interview with Suite Française director Saul Dibb

    One thing that struck me with Suite Française was how much of a sweeping, epic feel it had to it all. Were there any particular films that you would refer to, or inspired you, while making the film?

    I don’t think there was anything in particular, really; I guess the biggest inspiration, the obvious one, was the book [by Irène Némirovsky] – the fact that it was written at the time, and it…
