    The Crying Game

    ★★★★

    It's been a while since I've seen this. Happy to report that it is still a mighty fine movie, despite Oscar nominated Jaye Davidson being a little amateurish in the acting dept. My guess is, that he wasn't hired (or indeed nominated) for his acting prowess.

    Standout for me is Forrest Whittaker in the first half of the movie. He's the one who should've received the nomination!

    That aside, it's such an interesting movie, which is difficult to categorise. Part political thriller, part love story, part revenge movie perhaps; but all in all, a great movie.

    I tried, but it just didn't grab me. Gave up.

    A couple are haunted by the reappearance of his dead girlfriend every time they have sex. A brilliant concept, marvellously realised in this bloody, icky, pervy little Brit Flick, which I loved.

    My only concern was that it kept appearing to end, and then went on a bit more. However, on reflection, I think it needed that extra breathing space, in order to deliver the full force of the ending.

    One of my favourites of Frightfest 2015.

    Cronenberg's most commercial film is surprisingly one of his most gross - in a good way of course. There are some keys scenes in this movie, which live with you for years and will have turned as many on to the rest of his work as they turned off. For me the vomit drop destroying Flesh and the maggot baby are those key scenes that I still find a little hard to watch!

    Golblum is twitchy and odd. Perfect casting.…
