Neruda Review

Neruda

The problem with history is how easy it is to forget. Director Pablo Larrain’s solution is to cast Gael Garcia Bernal as a sort of deadpan Chilean Clouseau type with a thing for hot teeth in his titular new biopic about Chilean poet Pablo Neruda.

Free Fire Review

Free Fire

They say there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Well, They probably don’t get invited to many press screenings. Press screenings like the one I went to for the new Ben Wheatley film Free Fire.

Moonlight Review

Moonlight

Manchester By The Sea Review

Manchester By The Sea

Pain is supposed to be a positive thing, but it’s not an easy thing to talk about. Yet that’s just what writer and director Kenneth Lonergan has managed in his brilliant new film Manchester By The Sea.

Snowden Review

Snowden

Oliver Stone knows this world is full of fools like me, which is why he’s turned Edward Snowden’s life into a film with famous faces in it and everything. Having watched Snowden, I feel even more foolish than before.
