In the Tall Grass review – Lures You Into Its Maze and Doesn’t Let Go

It’s a great time to be a Stephen King fan. The past couple of years have been a sort of resurgence for the author and his place in pop culture, mostly thanks to 2017’s wildly successful It adaptation. Now it feels like a new King film, television series, book, or any of the three that’s noticeably…

Gemini Man review – Will Smith’s Duality Action Film is an Innovative Gem

Gemini Man surprised me. I really liked it. Ang Lee takes an odd turn to the more conventional style of filmmaking, however with innovations that impress. It stars Will Smith, Will Smith, Will Smith and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, there is a focus on the idea of duality and moral issues to do with the idea…

The Lighthouse review – Robert Egger’s Unnerving Masterpiece of Mythic Power | London Film Festival 2019

In his follow-up to The Witch, Robert Eggers returns with a twist on the Rime of the Ancient Mariner, a tale of two shackled-up Lighthouse keepers and their descent into madness. Almost Hitchcockian, Eggers' presentation in his creation of characters, framing and composition all scream of a director in complete and utter control of his…

The King review – Timothee Chalamet Holds The Kingdom and Film Together | London Film Festival 2019

David Michôd's The King begins in a sloppy mess full of actors giving pantomime-like performances, especially two actors. That being Dean-Charles Chapman and Ben Mendelsohn - absolutely horrific and laughable. Chapman screams and shouts in the most child-like-obviously-acting (terribly) way, whilst Mendelsohn phones in any ounce of past talent to nothing more than a few…

Between Two Ferns: The Movie review – Zach Galifianakis Sits Down with Celebrities Galore

What on Earth can you expect from a feature-length version of Between Two Ferns, the Funny or Die shorts where Zach Galifianakis has (horribly) interviewed various celebrities for over a decade now? The answer is...pretty much the same thing we’ve been getting, held together by a thin narrative that dips in and out of cohesiveness.…

Marriage Story review – Real, Nasty, Loving, Intimate and Adam Driver is Out of This World | Zurich Film Festival 2019

Why I love Marriage Story, I'd like to write my own tale. It's a strange mix of melodrama, romance and comedy, Noah Baumbach's finely tuned film is a tremendous success. Starring the ever-impressive Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson, it's a tender tale of love and divorce, it can be so endearing and yet maddening -…
