    Full of heart, Deniz Gamze Ergüven's feature film debut is about five orphan girls who once are seen innocently playing with boys on a beach, Which outrages their strict conservative guardians who confine them while forced marriages are arranged.

    This is a terrific film that doesn't shy away from harsh realities, which like the film says their lives change in the blink of an eye because of a wholly innocent event. It gives an insight to a different culture and…

    "Laugh and the world laughs with you. Weep and you weep alone."

    Oldboy will always hold a special place in my heart, as, it's the film that opened me up to a whole new world of cinema and made me realise there were a whole load of foreign delights waiting to be discovered. It probably started my journey from casual viewer into passionate viewer. I watched this a tonne of times between 2007 and 2010 not just on…

    I’m becoming obsessed - I love the whole thing the fake movie scenes, chilling out in cars, the bromance, di caprio’s engaging melancholic character arc, Pitts purposefully problematic persona, Tate as the periphery of change, all the side characters (I take to a different one each time), the what if ending that defines a fairytale, the unease of knowing where that night really went, the marvellous use of the Rolling Stones Out Of Time etc etc... ok maybe there were too many feet but I can live. 

    I think this predictably divisive film is Tarantinos late career masterpiece.

    Horror x52 - Female Director

    Covered in a shroud of intense dread from the very beginning, intentions and motifs aren't clear but you know something terrifyingly strange is going on. As we enter the setting (Not unlike the Sharon Tate, Manson murder setting - gives me chills just thinking about it) there is a slow and meditative build up of claustrophobic paranoia... that keeps going and going, until you can almost take no more.

    It's beautifully done from the lighting…
