REVIEW: THE TROUBLES TRILOGY

Baillie

"Mckinty blew [Ian] Rankin’s doors off not just because he has to check under his car for explosives each time he drives but because he has created a complex, sophisticated loner (as all good detectives are) who is just trying to make the world a better place but keeps on stepping on the wrong toes."

REVIEW: MR. TURNER

kane

"The opening shot of Mr. Turner is a stunning vision; a stream runs past a windmill which stands alone in a wide expanse of Dutch countryside. Two milkmaids jovially converse as they amble towards the foreground shortly after daybreak. The warm colours of a hazy sunrise light up the sky and the screen. This striking panorama sets the tone visually for the entirety of Mike Leigh’s period biopic... Thanks to cinematographer Dick Pope the film is a feast for the eyes from first to last." READ MORE


REARVIEW: GREMLINS

kane

"Is Gremlins saying that culture, like the mogwai, is something that one needs to be delicate with or else destroy/be destroyed by? And is the way that American cultural excess has spread throughout the world indicative that we've been irresponsible? Or is it about how America is being destroyed by foreign influence? Or is it just a kid's movie?" READ MORE


REVIEW:
RUSSIAN TATTOO

kane

"In the Soviet Union of the 1980s, Elena’s life in Russia is not easy. Daily routines include hostile lines for food, a distant mother, and a society in which the word privacy does not exist. In order to escape her constricted life, at twenty-four, Elena, partly impulsive and partly desperate, marries an American who whisks her away to the US. However, this is real life – Elena’s life – and not a Hollywood blockbuster."READ MORE
