  • Jesus Town, USA 2014

    ★★ Watched 28 Aug, 2014

    Not entirely convinced that this isn't more mockumentary than documentary but the bizarre set-up and the "drama" that the actor playing Jesus in this strange production is going through loses it's entertaining value gradually as the film develops and while this is a decent look at a small community and their odd custom it sadly becomes a really dull one by film's end.

  • Blood Brother 2013

    ★★★ Watched 28 Aug, 2014

    Four years after In Bruges Martin McDonagh returns to deliver a truly bonkers farce filled with wonderful meta-humour carried excellently by maybe the best ensemble cast this year.

    Hilarious dialogue that I've been quoting since i got out of the cinema, just as good as In Bruges at times. Rockwell steals the whole thing with an energetic and mad performance. Gets all the best lines and orchestrates the best scene in the film. His campfire tale is a colossus that…
