Hitchcock yet again proves the pleasure of perversity in Rear Window, a younger sibling to Vertigo. Each frame sizzles with festering guilt and the burning hot heatwave sun. The film's grandiose set becomes an MC Escher type labyrinth where each n... Read the full review »

Brimming with Wes Anderson charm with clear influence from Amelie, this oddball, slapstick rom com is tongue in cheek and full of love. Odes to Charlie Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy fuel the film's comedic performances while a quirky script keeps y... Read the full review »

It's been so long since I watched a Sunday night movie. For those unfamiliar, I see a Sunday night movie as a Spielberg-tyoe affair; tense, funny and overall enthralling for all the family. I think I really needed to watch a film like this, that t... Read the full review »

Gory, subversive and rife with twists and turns, Audition clearly tells me that Takashi Miike revels in the unfamiliar. He shuffles the deck rather than putting it into a neat order from ace to king. While this is commendable, I couldn't find anyt... Read the full review »

Sequinned with some comic moments and a performance from Meryl Streep which is undeniably perfect, the film is fun but flawed. Falling into genre tropes holds back this satire from standing among the greats, that being American Psycho, Dr Strange... Read the full review »

While this is one of the beautifully shot films with a central performance which is, at times effective, the whole thing comes across as a bit silly. Every creepy moment is so obvious. Williams character is your textbook stalker, down to the weird... Read the full review »

I went in with an open mind. In fact, I expected to enjoy Miss Congeniality. A simple concept, dumb but simple, with plenty of opportunities for whacky comedy. Sadly, the whole affair is rather mediocre. It's comes across as too easy; marketable t... Read the full review »

Saccharine, acidic and bubbling with dark humour, Shallow Grave emulates the grimy horrors of Boyle's Trainspotting while building a stage for three excellently sparky performances. Boyle's knack for shooting interiors is the star of the show her... Read the full review »

If only Ruby Sparks was written by Richard Curtis! That's all I could think when watching this. Don't get me wrong, it's charming, for the most part, has some interesting quirks and even manages to construct an engaging protagonist. But it didn't... Read the full review »

This film was the birth of the gangster movie. Filled with raging Tommy guns and sly characters, The Public Enemy is a tragic look at a dark path in life. Most of the sympathy from the audience derives from Tom's mother who is blissfully unaware o... Read the full review »
