    Doctor Sleep

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ

    Based on the 2013 novel by Stephen King, which itself is a sequel to his own 1977 book The Shining, Doctor Sleep is written, directed and edited by Mike Flanagan. Flanagan changes the third act from the book to incorporate iconography used in the movie adaptation of The Shining (which King notoriously loathed), but he was never going to be able to match the injection of creativity upon the source material on a par with Kubrick, and as a result,โ€ฆ

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    Bong Joon-hoโ€™s satirical black comedy thriller is an ingeniously well-crafted film that has a dark view of contemporary society and an unconventional approach in atmosphere. It additionally warrants the praise itโ€™s received including winning the Palme d'Or at the 72nd annual Cannes Film Festival as well as being selected as the South Korean admission for the best international film at the 92nd Academy Awards.

    Itโ€™s a movie which is genuinely comical one moment then tense and unnerving in the next;โ€ฆ

    sex, lies, and videotape

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ

    Winner of the 1989 Palme d'Or and the movie that ignited director Steven Soderberghโ€™s career, Sex, Lies, and Videotape is consumed within the ways that people expose themselves via verbal expressions. Voyeurism is also a significant theme, and Soderbergh competently transforms the viewer into an eavesdropper from the outset with dialogue that sizzles with humour and truth. Directing his own script, his debut as a filmmaker, Soderbergh displays remarkable self-confidence and elegant camerawork, providing a critical dramatic velocity to the sidestepping and disclosures of personal information. Produced on a shoestring budget, this is an emotionally distinct and insightfully written drama.

    Sullivan's Travels

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    With a title nod to Jonathan Swiftโ€™s satirical novel, Gulliver's Travels, this 1941 comedy written and directed by Preston Sturges ridicules some of the idealistic notions of some of his contemporaries while attempting to wrestle with a small quantity of his own. It's the deftness of the mockery that succeeds in delivering the desired results and safeguards studio heads like Mr Lebrand (Robert Warwick ) being not just insignificant send-ups but characters with ample to offer, including a practical standpoint of the plight of the world. Sturges energetically satirises both sides of this movieโ€˜s themes with plaintiveness and compassion.

  • Mulholland Drive

    Mulholland Drive

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    Initially conjured up as a ninety-minute television pilot, this is an evocative and unnerving story of ill-fated affection, jealousy, and evaporating dreams in the city of Los Angeles. It's a beautiful and mysterious neo-noir with numerous layers which never fully get answered yet, as typical with David Lynch movies, have a real depth of emotion to them. It incorporates a translucent strength of surrealistic filmmaking to distort an ostensibly straightforward film noir by way of his extraordinary and unique imagination.

  • Return of the Jedi

    Return of the Jedi

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    Directed by Richard Marquand with a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and George Lucus, this third instalment in the original Star Wars trilogy, set one year after The Empire Strikes Back, is a comparative disappointment. That's not to say that there's nothing to appreciate here, such as all of the characters receiving their moments including Lando who is now wholly redeemed from previous activities, and the ultimate three-way showdown between Luke, Vader and the Emperor is terrific. However, while Lucas wouldโ€ฆ
