  • The Double 2013

    ★★ Watched 14 Apr, 2014

    1984, Brazil, 12 Monkeys....even bits of Bladerunner...........derivative or shows its influences? Whatever - don't tell the director (he apparently gets a bit twitchy on the subject). Average - might have enjoyed it more if the two women a few seats down the aisle weren't in Gogglebox mode!

  • Calvary 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 21 Apr, 2014

    Film of the year so far by a country mile! If this doesn't win a shed load of BAFTAs early next year I will eat my cassock!

  • Goya's Ghosts 2006

    ★★ Watched 29 Apr, 2012

    TV movie territory. A far cry from Forman's good stuff.

  • Her 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 20 Mar, 2014

    The premise sounded fairly naff (man falls in love with his computer's operating system) so approached this with some reservations but was rather impressed by its thoughtfulness and prescience.
