  • 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…

    ★★★★½

    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.
    What I can say for sure though, is that it was an absolute privilege seeing a film like this on the big screen.

    It just goes to prove that you don't have to know what everything means and symbolises in a film, some thing's will always be left unexplained.
    Certainly with 'The…

    ★★★★

    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…
