3.0 out of 5 stars Middle Class Hypocrisy Writ Large, 1 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Elles - Subtitled (DVD)
Very well done, poignant and at times virtually unwatchable film about a horrible subject, interwoven with the lies and fakery of french middle class life. Recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been a good film!, 11 July 2014
This review is from: Eastern Promises (DVD)
Take a stellar cast and a really interesting story with a few good twists and then murder it with an atrocious script and hammy,cliched acting. What a pity!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very unusual and Inventive film, 4 July 2014
This review is from: Damsels in Distress (DVD)
I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It is original, highly inventive and-especially for an american film-surprisingly and refreshingly intelligent! Well worth watching

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth an enjoyable Laugh, 27 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Breathless (DVD)
Obviously atrocious, yet in its own way highly entertaining, remake of a seminal film. Richard Gere is clearly enjoying himself thoroughly hamming it up and Valerie Kaprisky, despite the laughable english accent and terrible script, looks like another Brigitte Bardot

4.0 out of 5 stars A sophisticated-and often much better- update on Woody Allen's earlier films, 17 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Before Midnight (DVD)
A really excellent and superbly scripted film about "real" life as a couple with an especial tour de force performance from Julie Delpy. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Enough Film, 12 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Bedways (DVD)
Quite a clever and interesting film examining aspects of sexual desire. Hardly going to win any prizes but worth watching with an open mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sharp and accurate portrayal of the appalling upper middle classes!, 3 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Archipelago (DVD)
This film is at the same time about the most boring and irritating thing you are ever likely to watch and at the same time is actually very good because that is the whole point. It mainly concentrates on some incredibly boring, useless and incapable members of an upper middle class family who go on holiday together in the Scilly Isles and illustrate perfectly how not to communicate with one another or behave in an obnoxious or pretentious manner. The only sensible member of the family is the father, who (no doubt equally self centred and supercilious) nevertheless doesnt appear at all in the film as he doesn't turn up as he's busy with other things.The depiction of the upper middle class stereotype who probably vote Tory and live in the home counties is so accurate it is completely unnerving. As a cornishman myself I have always felt it would be great if such people were to be permanently banned from my home county and as for Africa-well now wonder they would prefer to try to sort out heir own issues themselves!

4.0 out of 5 stars Film to make you think about modern Society, 2 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Atomised (DVD)
Really interesting film in the topics it tries to cover, which held my attention throughout despite some obviously very contrived plot formulas. Well worth the watch

4.0 out of 5 stars Yet another excellent social realist film from a great Director, 29 May 2014
This review is from: Bread And Roses (DVD)
Spoilt just a little by an unnecessary romantic frisson between two of the leads, and a touch hackneyed at times, but for the most part an excellent and moving film about a serious issue rarely given the time of day by the superficiality of Hollywood and its concentration on all matters other than those of any substance. Well done yet again to Ken Loach for making such a film, especially in America

3.0 out of 5 stars Harmless Drivel, 29 May 2014
This review is from: Bitter Moon (DVD)
I guess when this film was first released it was considered quite risque, though presumably? deliberately camp and cliched throughout which provide for the odd comedic moment. Otherwise a fairly harmless piece of trash. Interesting to see that once again Hugh Grant acts the same part in every film he plays!
