Zoo (2018)

Film Review : Zoo Come on, it’s just some big pharmaceutical company trying to cash in. Admit it, the zombie horror genre has been thoroughly milked in recent years. Last years the market is flooded with films in which a global epidemic causes the rise of a maddened mob of...

Ben is back (2018)

Film Review : Ben is Back Here’s the deal, and it is not negotiable. You get a day. Films about addictions and the destructive effect on family life and personal well-being. I have a hard time dealing with it. “Beautiful Boy” made a crushing impression on me recently. I was...

Wildling (2018)

Film Review : Wildling Do you want to hear a story? Do you want me to tell you about the Wildling? “Wildling” is a peculiar film. It’s hard to put a specific label on it. One moment it feels like a teenage movie about a freshly emerging love. On the...

The highwaymen (2019)

Film Review : The highwaymen Bonnie and Clyde have been on the road for two years. Cold-blooded killers who are more adored than movie stars. This has to stop. Who doesn’t know Bonnie and Clyde? In 1930, this pre-war couple had nothing better to do than go down the path...

Destroyer (2018)

Film Review : Destroyer What’s up? Silas is back. Obviously, the most striking element of this film is the transformation of Nicole Kidman. Her weathered, unkempt appearance with black-rimmed eyes, smudged skin, and a tousled haircut indicate an unhealthy lifestyle and a stubborn addiction. It soon becomes clear that the...

A Vigilante (2018)

Film Review : A Vigilante I’m looking out the window, and the trucks won’t stop coming. Anyone saw “John Doe: Vigilante“? No? I hope you’re not going to waste your time on that one. Just put that intention aside and watch the movie “A vigilante” instead. The latter is much...

The Mule (2018)

Film Review : The Mule Family’s the most important thing. Work’s fine, if it’s in second position. But first position should be family. “The Old Man & the Gun” might be the piece de résistance of Robert Redford. “The Mule” might be the grand finale in Clint Eastwood’s career. This...

Stan & Ollie (2018)

I thought you’d retired. No, we’re-we’re… we’re getting older, but we’re not done yet. Simply nostalgia. “Stan & Ollie” is a trip to a bygone era when I was a little boy. When I returned from school on Friday afternoon, I threw my schoolbag somewhere in a corner and turned...

Guest Blog : Climax (2018)

By, Darren Arnold, Film Critic During the past 20 years, Gaspar Noé has made just five feature films.  Climax – which has recently been released on DVD and Blu-ray – appeared after the shortest gap in his filmography, following his 2015 3D feature Love.  The list of people you could...

Life itself (2018)

So, what does that tell us? That the only truly reliable narrator is life itself. But life itself is also a completely unreliable narrator because it is constantly misdirecting and misleading us and taking us on this journey where it is literally impossible to predict where it’s gonna go next....

The Bouncer (2019)

If something happens to my daughter I’ll kill you. You and your boss. Just when you think that an icon such as Jean-Claude Van Damme is becoming a caricature of himself and in danger of sinking into oblivion, he surprises you with such a part as in this film. The...

Hereditary (2018)

If you could have just said, “I’m sorry”, or faced up to what happened. Maybe then we could do something with this. But you can’t take responsibility for anything! So now I can’t accept… And I can’t forgive because… Because nobody admits anything they’ve done! “Hereditary“. A film I was...

The man who killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot (2018)

That day, I just killed a man. What he stood for was unstoppable. The absurd title alone should stimulate your curiosity. A film with such a whopper of a title (sounding completely absurd) can only lead to an unrivaled experience. My first reaction was: “Only Monty Python can come up...

Bad Times at the El Royale (2018)

The El Royale is a bi-state establishment. You have the option to stay in either the great state of California… or the great state of Nevada. Warmth and sunshine to the west… or hope and opportunity to the east. Which would you prefer? Let me get straight to the point....

Seat 25 (2017)

You decide to go to Mars forever and you forget to tell your husband? I’m open to all kinds of films. It doesn’t have to be a blockbuster with star actors. I love indies as well. And already several times I was lucky enough to see a gem of a...

Beautiful Boy (2018)

Relapse is a part of recovery. 8 Years ago I found myself in a similar hopeless situation. With my back against the wall. Desperately searching for a way out. Knowing that I had to change my way of life drastically. Or else I would be admiring the roots of green...

Cargo (2017)

We have no idea what it was that bit you. It had fingers, Andy! Fuck! If there’s one genre with so many releases that you get tired of it, it’s certainly the zombie genre. I’m sure this kind of movies is made on a daily basis. Movies in which infected...

Jonathan (2018)

Wow. You’ve given each other the perfect male fantasy. Sex without emotional attachment. Fascinating. That’s the best description for this film. “Jonathan” is not an easy movie and it excels in monotony. But give this not so action-packed, one location situated film a chance and maybe you’ll discover how unparalleled...

Warning shot (2018)

All right, I need you to loosen the guy up. He’s old, all right? Do not kill him. The only thing I wondered afterward was “Why for God sake was this movie made?“. I’m not saying that this was the most horrible film of the year. Or the most superfluous...

Flora (2017)

Rudyard, there are no people living in this forest. Do you see any animals? There’s no flora with any color, nothing to allure insects! Are you someone who prefers to spend his free time in his perfectly tended garden? Is your lawn as if a delegation from the International Golf...

Painless (2017)

Every once in a while, nature makes a mistake. The beginning explains a lot. First, footage of an adorable-looking 2-year-old, growing up and having one injury after the other. And again and again, you get this emotionless stare because he turns out to be numb to pain. In addition, there’s...

At first light (2018)

Hey, Sean, you got to see this. Look, this… this girl, you got to see what she can do. She has some crazy powers or something. Although this minimalist SF offers a rather disappointing outcome and they could have done more with the powers Alex (Stefanie Scott) has at a...

Dark Crimes (2018)

You’re the girl in the inner room. Alicja is your story. You talked, he wrote it down. I suppose it’s almost impossible to use an exuberant color palette for a film situated in a Slavic country. Every time the story takes place in such a communist or ex-communist country, the...

Adrift (2018)

It’s intense. The infinite horizon. After a few days, I feel reborn. You know, just you, the wind and the sound of the boat cutting through the ocean. When you compare “Adrift” with the movie “All is lost“, where Robert Redford sailed across the ocean on board of a huge...
