    Enemy 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 23 Aug, 2015

    This film is made of tense, The score and brutalist architecture along with the faded out colours and muted lighting all add to the unease. Jake Gyllenhall plays Adam, a history teacher who one day spies his double in a film. He searches for Anthony (also JG) eventually meeting him in a hotel before running out. Anthony follows Adam and takes a liking to his girlfriend, planning to take advantage. Adam appears to let it wash all over him, then…

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 26 May, 2015

    A true film spectacle, satisfying every urge you had to know how an adapted road vehicle would perform when smashed continuously into another. Charlize Theron is truly wonderful as Furiosa, a great mix of ass-kicking and vulnerability and Nicholas Hoult adds another one-to-watch turn as Wannabe War Boy, Nux. Hardy as Max I am less sure about as his performance possibly takes monosyllabic one step too far and his accent is aussie-come-caveman. I digress though as this is Theron's film.…
