Title: The House that Jack Built (2018) Director: Lars Von Trier The world has a very morbid curiosity with serial killers. This can often border on voyeurism; hours and hours of consuming endless documentaries detailing heinous crimes that are enough to prevent you from all forms of social interaction, ever. We occasionally enhance this experience … Continue reading The House that no one asked for; our modern obsession with killers
The Bad Batch (2016) Dir: Ana Lily Amirpour Let's start with the positives. I'm feeling lots of love and harmony lately, and I've decided that I'm gonna try REALLY REALLY hard to see the good in things. Ironically I had this epiphany just before i watched this film so......sucks for me. So pros.... This film … Continue reading Cannibals and Keanu Reeves
The idea of a sequel pains me. With the exception of The Godfather and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, I really don't have an overwhelming desire to watch a sequel. Ever. Look at what happened to Paranormal Activities. What started as an incredible film (a film, 1 film, singular), turned into a barrage of annoying … Continue reading Camping
The Neon Demon (2016) Dir: Nicholas Refn If you were to see this on Netflix, without knowing anything about it, and toyed with the idea of watching it because the visual was cool, and the bloke who did Drive directed it, then don't watch it. Really, don't. I'm not even really sure if Netflix is the … Continue reading The darkest shade of neon
Dir: James Wan 2016 Let's just start with a couple of basics right here right now. Enfield is in EN which therefore means its not in London, can I get there by tube? Is it in zones 1-4? Do they even have Uber? I think we can all agree that anything outside of zone … Continue reading Enfield. Not North London
dir: David Robert Mitchell (2015) *MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD* I wanna start by stating that this is a proper film, and I mean a PROPER film. It's an art house, wide angles, beautiful cinematography, amazing acting, 'nod to David Cronenberg' kinda film. Def not one for the Netflix and chill. Had to get that out of … Continue reading You will catch Chlamydia and you will die….
Every now and again comes a director so mind-blowingly overrated you almost feel compelled to hate them just to level out the playing field a bit. Even though not all of them are as evil and self obsessed as say, Christopher Nolan (just picking names out a hat here guys), you've decided by default that … Continue reading The Visit….sure
Sometimes I go and watch horror movies and I'm all like "meh". The usual haunted house/scary Japanese chick with long hair/young possessed catholic girl/ hillbillies who eat people situation. As a horror fan you get so used to these formulas then eventually you're just like immune...and often jaded...and that's fine I guess, just a bit … Continue reading Deliver us from tired scripts
Even though it wasn't actually out that long ago, (fine...its only recently become available on Netflix). I feel that this month's revisited should go to Elijah Wood for acting like a crazy fool. Or Frodo goes Loco as Total film put it. He's actually so mind-blowing crazy in this film its beyond words.The worst part … Continue reading Maniac: Revisted
Everyone pretty much jizzes their pants whenever you talk about Michael Haneke. I've sat through endless conversations with film grads, excitedly discussing how profound Haneke's work is; how his subtle social commentary and take on violence is "unbelievably thought provoking", how his meticulous and flawless filmmaking practices will haunt you for months, and so forth … Continue reading Funny Games Revisted.
