Film Review: Annabelle

Cult Fiction

Annabelle

Clichés may be regrettable in a genre movie but they’re not necessarily ruinous. Exhibit A is James Wan’s The Conjuring, the greatest hits package of 2013, that conquered its derivative architecture with style. Wan knew how to move the camera, how to light a scene and how to gauge a performance. The result was a […]

Film Review: ’71

The Good Ol' Days

71 poster

At first sight ’71, a troubling film about the troubles in Northern Ireland, seems like a departure for Dead Set director, Yann Demange. His best known TV work was a satirical take on so-called reality television, in which Big Brother contestants became mindless zombies. The notion of ordinary people turned into bloodthirsty, instinct driven, homicidal […]

Would you fuck this monkey? 

Electric_boogaloo_poster

From director Mark Hartley comes a story so absurd it must be true. To afficandos of bad movies, many of which have become bywords for the excess and Reganite fascism of the 1980’s, Cannon Films, spearheaded by the the pair known affectionately as “the bad news jews”, Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus, is the kite […]

The Bat Man

Dracula Untold

The question with any new spin on Bram Stoker’s infamous sucker is whether it’s a tale that needs to be told. Gary Shore’s debut surely didn’t, as the ground it covers was trod at greater speed and with more style in the prologue to Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 movie, with the Godfather director having composer […]

Crazy in Love

Gone Girl

Gone Girl the novel and Gone Girl the movie are much the same beast. Both draw strength from excavating the differences between the sexes – the insecurities, aspirations and relationship expectations of each refracted through the brains of a supercilious husband and wife, and an over-plotted story and highly problematic ending undermine both. Author and […]

Maps to the Stars

David Cronenberg’s long been fascinated with forms of horror, be it body or psychological, so it’s not a surprise that he’s finally found the time to look at that cess pool of dysfunction and disgust, Hollywood actors. As the ultimate outsider, a man used to shooting in his native Canada (for tax purposes), Cronenberg need […]

War on Thugs

The Equalizer

At first glance Antoine Fuqua’s thriller bears little resemblance to the Edward Woodward TV series of old. Denzel Washington, head shaved for aerodynamic effect, is not silhouetted against a Jaguar XJ6, there’s no adding money to a miniature scales of justice and no thumping, foreboding theme by Steward Copeland, but on second glance The Equalizer […]

Film Review: A Walk Amongst the Tombstones

Be a Body Part of it, New York, New York. 

AWATTS

A Walk Amongst the Tombstones is a multiple throwback, and a pleasing one at that. There’s nostalgia on nostalgia; what you might call layered atmospherics. For a start it’s a neo-noir. Sam Spade and Phillip Marlowe are name checked early on, in case the dark past of Liam Neeson’s grisly, lived-in P.I and a torrid […]

Your Future Overlords

The Riot Club

In a two hour upper class shock, the only thing missing from The Riot Club is the absence of the closing caption, “that was a party political broadcast by the Labour Party”. Laura Wade’s Bullingdon Club burlesque (though how exaggerated is open to question), imagining the privileged hell, mire of entitlement, snobbery, misogyny and arrogance […]

Staying Safe

AMWM

The death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman inevitably looms large over this grounded, mature War on Terror thriller, immersed in the gloom of 9/11 terrorist Mohammed Atta’s old stomping ground, Hamburg. It’s a real world import that ensures there’s great scrutiny on this, one of his last complete performances. There’s a sense of “last chance to […]
