  • Paris Blues

    Paris Blues 1961

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Oct, 2016

    Much like the multitude of heady jazz numbers that flow throughout the film, Paris Blues is a cool, breezy and laid-back character-led romantic drama with strong turns by the four likeable leads, not least the late, great Paul Newman, effortlessly exuding that trademark piercing blue-eyed intensity and magnetism. The second of five memorable collaborations between director Martin Ritt and his lead, it's something of a mystery how this overlooked gem isn't mentioned in the same breath as the duos more recognised works.

    The Nice Guys 2016

    ★★★ Watched 23 Oct, 2016

    Fun if a little lightweight, not sure if this ranks up there with Black's best work. Great chemistry between the leads and some nice period detail, but initial lack of xmas references was worrying.

    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.
