Movie Review: This Must Be The Place

Movie Review: This Must Be The Place
This Must Be The Place is an unusual film. It is a rich character study and a wonderfully weird and ambitious American road movie from master Italian director, Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo), directing his first English language film. It is one of the best films to hit screens in 2012 so far. Cheyenne (a performance of incredible precision from Sean Penn) is a former 80’s rock star living in his reclusive...

Movie Review: Headhunters, now showing at Dendy Newtown
Where to begin with Headhunters? I went in knowing nothing about it, and the experience was all the better for it. I had a blast. But, for the purposes of this review, I’ll have to reveal a little in my attempts to persuade you all to see it. It is a Norwegian thriller directed by Morten Tyldum and adapted from the best-selling 2008 novel by internationally acclaimed crime novelist, Jo Nesbo. The... 

Perfect weather for a movie! Movie Review: ‘A Separation’, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Perfect weather for a movie! Movie Review: 'A Separation', now showing at Dendy Newtown
A Separation, written and directed by Asghar Farhadi, early in 2011 became the first Iranian film to win the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival. It also picked up Silver Bears for its wonderful ensemble cast. Just this week, it won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. This compelling masterpiece (and there is no other way to describe it), though relatively subtle and simple in its plot... 

Movie Review: Attack the Block, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Movie Review: Attack the Block, now showing at Dendy Newtown
Attack The Block is a lot of fun, and a pretty impressive debut feature from writer/director Joe Cornish. The film was produced through Big Talk Productions, known for films like Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and possess the same filmmaking smarts (setting an alien invasion in a South London council estate – what an idea) and relentless energy that made those modern... 

Movie Review: We Need to Talk About Kevin, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Movie Review: We Need to Talk About Kevin, now showing at Dendy Newtown
This is going to be one of the more delicate reviews I have written in some time. We Need to Talk About Kevin, the extraordinary new film from acclaimed filmmaker, Lynne Ramsay (Morvern Caller), is an experience that benefits from knowing very little prior to viewing. As a result, this review will leave a lot unsaid, but I wholeheartedly recommend checking out this densely plotted, powerfully acted...

Movie Review: Bill Cunningham New York, now showing at Dendy Newtown
Bill Cunningham New York, directed by Richard Press, is a thoroughly entertaining documentary about an eccentric obsessive, a passionate and dedicated professional, and a happy, kind-hearted, down-to-earth and extremely likeable individual. Bill Cunningham is not just a New York Times photographer; he is a cultural anthropologist who has been chronicling for decades the most peculiar of New York City’s... 

Movie Review: Drive, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Movie Review: Drive, now showing at Dendy Newtown
As a bold selection for Closing Night of the 2011 Melbourne International Film Festival, Drive sure had anticipated viewers rattled, especially those not expecting the kind of violence present in this film. With one of the best opening sequences I have seen this year, and a handful of harrowing moments, the images from Drive will long remain seared in your consciousness. Though there are a few flaws...

Movie Review: The Whistleblower, now showing at Dendy Newtown
There are some truly horrifying atrocities that occur in the world we live in. Hearing of some of the harrowing things that take place can rattle you to the bone. Human trafficking, and in particular, underage female sex trafficking, is one of the most prevalent organized crime syndicates in the world. It is stipulated at the conclusion of The Whistleblower, that there is an estimated 2.5 million people... 

Movie Review: The Guard, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Movie Review: The Guard, now showing at Dendy Newtown
In The Guard, Brendan Gleeson plays Gerry Boyle, an unorthodox small town Irish Police Sergeant with a confrontational personality, a callous laziness towards his profession and a crass indifference to the laws he is supposed to uphold. Consequently he has not care whatsoever for the Cocaine-smuggling ring that brings an uptight FBI Agent (Don Cheadle) to his door requiring his assistance and stressing...
