  • 8½


    The first time I saw 8 1/2 was around the time I started to get into foreign cinema. I’d always seen 8 1/2 as a staple on ‘greatest movies of all time’ lists and one of those films that like a ‘2001’, has much mystery and wonder surrounding it. I was both excited and anxious to find out whether the high acclaim and praise was for good reason, and whether the film would resonate with me. 
    I can safely say…

    Before Sunrise


    The magic of falling in love is something that is right at the peak for most human beings journey through life, and is a feeling that is almost impossible to pigeonhole or define. Simply, when it happens, you know it instinctively.
    This uncontrollable, undeniable blend of lust and passion creates a spark on a train between a man and a women on the way to Vienna, in ‘Before Sunrise’...and from the moment their eyes first interlock, they succumb to the…

    Well, what did all that mean exactly? Hmm. I'm not quite sure. It's certainly up for debate and allows for plenty of interpretations and theories to be made.

    This is a magical, fantastical and dazzling portrayal of one of the greatest songwriters of all time. Having had the enourmous privilege of seeing Elton John a grand total of twenty-five times in concert throughout the years, dating back to 1999 (and met him at his autobiography signing last year too!!!), it's safe to say his music has played a crucial part in my life. The music is timeless, his life is one of a kind, and this film is…

    The Handmaiden


    So i was browsing in my local HMV in the new release section, and my eyes caught a gaze on a certain Blu-Ray. I was transfixed on the artwork for a film called 'The Handmaiden'. I instantly picked it up, read that it was the latest feature film by Park Chan-wook and instantly made it to the till points rather gleefully with my copy of the movie.
    The reason I was so excited to watch this was because I had…

    “This is the girl...”

    It’s hard to believe now that the potential life of Mulholland Drive was cast into the shadows by studio executives. Originally shot as a TV pilot, David Lynch had is work turned away, dismissed and tossed onto the scrap heap - that is until Lynch decided to have a go at tweaking the script and making it into a feature-length film.
    One can only imagine how Mulholland Drive would have translated to series form, and how…
