BFI London Film Festival 2017 Review: Stronger

An inspirational drama based on a true story in which the main character is disabled. Based on that description, it’s easy to dismiss Stronger as yet another in a long line of Oscar-bait movies, which would be a huge mistake. Yes, Stronger definitely has some familiar beats – but it also subverts quite a few […]

The Vikings Blu-Ray Review

A Blu-Ray release of Richard Fleischer’s 1958 movie The Vikings has finally arrived to the UK, courtesy of Eureka Classics – how does it fare nearly 60 years on? Not too bad. It’s not a great movie – held back by bland writing and thin characterization – but there’s enough action and spectacle to make […]

The Foreigner Review

There is Jackie Chan the man and then there is Jackie Chan the international action star. The two aren’t particularly exclusive.

Downsizing is a film that starts out with a phenomenal concept but gets a little lost in the execution. A brilliant scientific breakthrough allows people to be shrunk down to five inches tall, ostensibly for the purposes of saving resources, and therefore the planet. The film starts strong, with a funny and engaging introduction to the […]

BFI London Film Festival 2017 Review: Cargo

Cargo, co-written and directed by Gilles Coulier, is a drama about three brothers who own a fishery business that’s on its last legs. It tries to be a quiet, introspective character study but is so understated that it ends up being frustratingly dull and opaque. With their father on his deathbed, Jean (Sam Louwyck) finds […]

BFI London Film Festival 2017 Review: Ingrid Goes West

Ingrid Goes West is a dreadfully dull and pointless movie – a prime example of how to waste a talented cast while pretending you have some kind of meaningful social commentary. Ingrid (Aubrey Plaza) is a mentally unstable young woman prone to obsessing over the lives of complete strangers and believing herself to be their […]
