    The Chills: The Triumph and Tragedy of Martin Phillipps

    ★★★★

    So much going on here: artistic success, personal failure, drugs, poor health.....all the boxes tick for a typical biopic checklist.
    Thank goodness it was done as a documentary instead.

  • Trouble in Paradise

    Trouble in Paradise

    ★★★½

    It's no To Be Or Not To Be, but it's still wittier than many romantic comedies that came in its wake.

    The Rise of the Synths

    ★½

    This film was a huge disappointment. There seemed to be no point to it other than to say that synth composers and lovers are outsiders. This was a huge arse kiss to John Carpenter - he had no real reason in being here other than the multitude of talking heads saying how cool he was.

    The film LOOKS beautiful, but this is the definition of style over substance.
