  • Murder on the Orient Express 1974

    ★★★★½ Watched 08 Sep, 2014

    Sidney Lumet is no stranger to a single setting narrative and emulates the energy, weighty drama and intricate design of 12 Angry Men for his elegant, star-studded adaptation of Agatha Christie's definitive whodunit. Murder on the Orient Express, or 13 suspicious passengers, is a fascinating mystery drama that supplies enough information to encourage you to draw your own conclusions, but smartly withholds enough to ensure its astonishing twist finale completely blows you away.

    ★★ Watched 02 Sep, 2014

    If you don’t guess the all too predictable twist early on, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's Intruders is probably an entertaining horror experience for those in need of a cheap scare. It tries to pass itself off as an original chiller with an enticing premise, but gets too wrapped up in an unnecessarily complex narrative and eventually relies on the same well worn clichés it looked set to avoid.

His recounting of the true life story of Argo is no exception and further authorises his position as a meaningful director.
