    Venezia 79 Coverage - DAY 4

    “All men are born with halters around their neck” - Herman Melville, Moby Dick.  

    Obvious comparisons between Brendan Fraiser’s lead performance in The Whale as Charlie and the White Whale at the heart of the Herman Melville classic Moby Dick will be expected, but not accurate. Charlie is Captain Ahab, pushing through the storm of life with the desire to do just one thing right with it in his final days. His failings…

    Whirring his hands around the glass jar of rejected ideas to be thrown together in the shadow of a bigger, better release, Zack Snyder is back.

    Drinking has attached itself to so many important moments in societies across the world. Whether that’s a detriment or a dream come true is up to the individual. A social welder, a coping mechanism, a celebratory beverage, or a steriliser, maybe all of the above at once. Another Round, the latest film from Dutch director Thomas Vinterberg, follows four high-school teachers who open a study into how a low level of intoxication will affect their day to day business.
