The Beaver Review

From the graphically violent flagellation of Jesus, to the Mayan ritual human sacrifices in honour of the sun god Kukulkan through to the shameless sodomisation of a helpless puppet; it seems there’s nothing Mel Gibson won’t turn his hand to.

Biutiful DVD Review

Life isn’t beautiful.

At least this seems to be the overwhelming message Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu communicates in his bleak yet powerful feature Biutiful.

The Hangover Part II Review

From Newton’s three laws of motion to Einstein’s theory of relativity, scientific formulas have helped shape humanity into the world we have today.

These magic little equations of truth have facilitated our civilisation’s evolution from the dark ages to, well, not quite enlightenment; but at least we’re not still burning witches at the stake, torturing heretics for blasphemy or worshipping rotting cadavers on crucifixes.

Julia’s Eyes Review

It’s what you don’t see.

That’s what always makes a horror film scary to me, what the director doesn’t show you, so you can fill in the blanks yourself with whatever it is you’re most afraid of.

Win Win Review

Cashing in.

That’s one of the principle tenet’s running through the heart of Tom McCarthy’s offbeat comedy Win Win, and it’s something I’d happily apply to the people behind this film too.
