REARVIEW:
SEVEN SAMURAI

kane

"The narrative’s simplicity makes Seven Samurai accessible to any viewer but this belies the layer upon layer of meaning which Kurosawa’s extraordinary camerawork and mise-en-scène creates, generating a further dimension for analysis and discussion." READ MORE


REVIEW: TRAVELS WITH CASEY

travels

"An easygoing observer of human behaviour, Benizet-Lewis is often funny and always nonjudgmental. He just weaves the details of many breeds of dogs and all types of owners, in and around his journey with this best buddy Casey, who must be a dream pet to put up with a master seemingly preoccupied during the trip with getting romanced. Denizet-Lews's style seems more of a lovelorn gonzo journalist than an immersed one, but it's sweet all around." READ MORE


REVIEW: THE GRAND SEDUCTION

kane

"Unlike the harbour’s new found love for the game of cricket, the jokes do not feel forced or contrived and flow naturally from the warmth and charisma of a tremendous cast."READ MORE


REVIEW: GIRL IN THE ROAD

kane

"The Girl in the Road is mystifying and full of discovery; unsettling, brilliant, repulsive, yet ultimately engrossing. It is a bundle of intensity and contradictions. Like life itself, the novel is perhaps equally as idiosyncratic, meaningful, exhilarating, and breathtakingly eye-opening."READ MORE
