    ★★★★ Watched 17 Aug, 2016

    The cinematically unexplored mean streets of Brussels is the setting for this tale of star-crossed lovers whose union exacerbates the already fraught relationship between two warring gangs. An adaptation of two popular YA novels from prolific Flemish author Dirk Bracke, Black is the robust and confident second feature from Belgium filmmakers Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.

    Great debut from the talented writer/director/actor Desiree Akhavan. She's similarly fearless to her buddy Lena Dunham in the way she’s able to project a raw (and affecting) vulnerability on screen.

    A well-made and surprisingly engrossing law drama with a stunning central performance from Chris Evans.

    Another example of a decent film inexplicably missing out on a big screen release. Hope it finds an audience on video.

    Ti West may have disowned it but there's a lot to like about this twisted sequel. Porky's by way of John Waters and Troma.
