    Paris Pigalle

    ★★★

    Directed by Cedric Anger this film stars Guillaume Canet, Gilles Lellouche and Camille Razat. In the 1980s two French detectives go undercover in the French porn industry.

    Nothing much stands out as surprising here, our protagonists end up finding the people involved in the porn industry are not that bad after all. Maybe a little less voyeurism and a bit more looking at the darker side of the industry would have helped balance out this film. Not a bad watch but not one worth seeking out either really.

    The Glue

    ★★★½

    Directed by Alice Guy-Blache this is an early short film. A boy causes mayhem all over town by spreading glue in unexpected places.

    Simple in concept and execution this is a decent little comedy shot. The gags are obvious but still raise a chuckle. There is not a ton to the film making, a solid effort, not much more.

    The Good Doctor

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Directed by Lance Daly this film stars Orlando Bloom, Riley Keough, Michael Pena, Taraki P. Henson and Rob Morrow. A young doctor struggles to find the respect he thinks should come with the job and becomes obsessed with a young female patient.

    This film starts off fairly normally but slowly takes a turn into the dark and creepy as the actions of the protagonist become more sinister. What I like about this film is the subtle understated nature of the…
