REVIEW | Call Me Kuchu [DVD]

— Do you like things that make you so angry, you feel like you could change the world with that anger? Call Me Kuchu, a devastating and astute documentary on LGBT campaigners fighting for their right to exist in a fervently anti-gay Uganda, gives you such anger. And it’s out on DVD now. Read my review over at … Continue reading

The Stuff that Dreams are Made of: Are video games the successor to movies?

What would you spend your money on – the new Spielberg picture, or the latest Elder Scrolls game? Both take place on a screen in front of us; both use characters to portray emotion; both need us to invest ourselves in them. But even though the movies have been enthralling us since the first film-exclusive … Continue reading

CATCH-UP: Enter The Void

This is a column where I watch then briefly review films that have been on my to-see list. Here are my thoughts. (Year of release: 2009) Thrilling, moving… and fucked up. Gaspar Noé, director of contro thriller Irreversible, has never been a critic’s favourite. ‘Shock for shock’s sake’ has been at the forefront of derision … Continue reading

CATCH-UP: Dogtooth

This is a column where I view then briefly review films that have been on my to-see list. Here are my thoughts. (Year of release: 2009) Rule number one of international cinema: Flaunt your accolades so that the West will buy in.

CATCH-UP: City Of Life And Death

This is a column where I view then briefly review films that have been on my to-see list. Here are my thoughts. One of 2010’s best reviewed films ain’t half bad. Chuan Lu’s epic is set during the 1937 invasion of the Japanese, in Nanking, China. It follows (thoroughly) the Rape of Nanking, and how … Continue reading

CATCH-UP: Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

This is a column where I view, then briefly review films that I’ve been meaning to see for quite a while. Here are my thoughts. Uncle Boonmee who can recall his… snore. Palme d’Or winner. That’s got to count for something, right? There is a pantheon where particular art films reside, away from Hollywood, away from … Continue reading

REVIEW: Submarine

Ayoade’s debut treads water. Well. I know what you’re thinking. ‘Here we go again, more indie bullshit.’ Whoa – let’s not pass judgement so expeditiously. Richard Ayoade, the bespectacled geek from the IT Crowd, was in the director’s chair after all; so why not humour the indie bullshit for a paragraph or two? Oliver Tate, … Continue reading

REVIEW: Rango

Fill yer… erm, claws? Ahh, the Western. A genre that died a decade or so ago, yet we have had a slight resurgence recently. No Country for Old Men and Inglourious Basterds (in story, not setting) are good examples, and most recently we’ve had True Grit to add to the long list of great Westerns … Continue reading
