    Throne of Blood


    Brilliant cinematography and atmospheric special effects, and a great story borrowed from Shakespeare, but boring in some bits.  Get on with it!

  • Your Name.

    Your Name.


    An interesting concept told in a wonderfully surprising way, going off in directions I never expected, and producing an epic feeling of equal satisfaction and wistfulness. Top quality animation and masterful direction kept me totally engaged all the way through. This is a really special film.

    28 Up


    The children of 7 Up are now fully fledged adults, and it's getting more interesting seeing how dramatically some have changed since 21, for better or worse. It seems clearer now that the series' premise - that our future personalities are determined from a young age - is not correct at all.

    As an exercise in beautiful imagery, it's almost unparalleled. The storyline is touching and memorable, although the pacing is all over the place. Hope you like planes.
