  • Deliver Us from Evil 2014

    ★★½ Watched 22 Nov, 2014

    There are moments when Deliver Us From Evil is riveting and tense. Those moments come when Scott Derrickson and Paul Harris Boardman's script is focused, giving Eric Bana's police officer something solid in terms of a plot to latch onto. Unfortunately those periods are undercut by a swaths of directionless wandering. The film, fictionalized from the life of New York cop-turned-demonologist Ralph Sarchie, spends far too much time wandering through seemingly isolated events until it establishes the narrative tie to…

  • The Song Remains the Same 1976

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Nov, 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Jun, 2014

    Unconventional, disturbing and thought-provoking, Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin is not a film that will just be quickly banished from your mind whether you like it or hate it. Glazer has been working on adapting Michel Faber's alien psychosexual novel for some time, with a long time reportedly spent in the editing room to get it right. It is no insult to say that he doesn't quite succeed because he still manages to hit many of the right notes with…
