  • Begin Again 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 12 Oct, 2014

    Many people have said that the best thing going in Begin Again is the music itself. Others have pointed out the work of actors Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, James Corden, Hailee Steinfeld and Adam Levine as carrying the film. And make no mistake; these are all things that help to elevate the film.

    ★★★★ 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…
