Film Review: Death on the Nile is a campy mystery that succeeds as a knowingly melodramatic affair

February 8, 2022

Whilst most films set for release over the last two years were understandably shaken by the COVID-19 pandemic, Kenneth Branagh‘s Death on the Nile has been more than just a casualty of coronavirus.  Though its initial late 2020 release was pulled due to the ongoing pandemic – and industry insiders spooked by Tenet‘s “underperformance” – […]

Film Review: Crisis details a heavy story without succumbing to its own weight

March 18, 2021

A multi-faceted drama designed in a manner not unlike Steven Soderbergh’s acclaimed, layered Traffic, Crisis‘ own multiple-strand approach to storytelling is understandable, but also can’t help but highlight the fact that director Nicholas Jarecki‘s ambition outweighs his ability to smoothly execute. There’s much to be discussed here, with Jarecki commenting on the many facets of […]

Film Review: Stanley Tucci’s Final Portrait (USA, 2017) is filled with effortless charm

October 3, 2017

We meet Alberto Giacometti (Geoffrey Rush) in a state of supreme boredom – another day, another exhibition.

Anchored by a wonderful turn from Geoffrey Rush as eccentric painter Giacometti, this dramedy of sorts […]

Film Review: Free Fire (UK, 2016) avoids Hollywood action tropes in the best way

April 24, 2017

The films by British director Ben Wheatley have all been incredibly distinct from another and are all very well-done. Whether going through the genre of crime, psychological horror, dark comedy, dystopian drama or historical surrealism, you can never accuse Wheatley of doing the same trick twice. But the crucial through-line through all his films is […]

Film Review: The Man From U.N.C.L.E (M, USA, 2015)

August 13, 2015
