    La La Land

    ★★★★½

    The art of filmmaking is alive and well in the hands of Chazelle, who employs classically inspired camera techniques that allow audiences to be swept away in the musical fantasies playing out on screen while letting the actors’ performances speak for themselves, uninterrupted by heavy editing. [...]It could be argued that the camera itself plays another character inhabiting this world...

    Sing Street

    ★★★★½

    Lawler is the heart of the movie and he feels content to blend into the background of his new school, never making a mark or changing the attitudes of those around him. It’s not until he starts his band and forms genuine connections with people his own age (as well as his brother) that Lawler feels inspired to be a unique individual in a sea of average Catholic school boys.

Simmons).

  • The Evil Dead

    The Evil Dead

    ★★★★★

    The Evil Dead transcends the drive-in. It transcends horror cinema. It stands alone as a work of pure, uninhibited creative savagery. Raimi’s camera moves with a fierceness which gives it a remarkable presence; his frequent use of subjective point-of-view shots rip the viewer into the action.
