    Kiss Me Deadly

    ★★★★

    A true noir classic. It has pretty much every noir theme nailed on. Sleaziy gangsters, an anti hero of sorts, femme fatales, brilliant moody lighting, mystery at every corner, a web of deceit etc It also comes with a sharp, witty script.

    I particularly loved the way it was shot - cameras mounted on the trunk of the cars, street walls lit up to make silhouettes, close ups on faces / shoes / cigarettes. Hard to believe it was made…

    ★★★★

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

    Aronofsky is one of the finest film-makers around. One of those directors that I'd make a point of seeing whatever he puts out.

    The Handmaiden

    ★★★★½

    Park Can Wook is in a class of his own. One of the Directors that you just have to see whatever he puts out, because the chances are it's going to be at least "very good".

    The Handmaiden is beautiful, erotic, captivating, naughty, perverse, thrilling, tense, twisted and brilliant.

    For anybody who likes mindfuck cinema it's a great great film. For anyone who likes Park Chan Wook - it's bliss.
