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: 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...

Movie Review: Win Win, now showing at Dendy Newtown
I really need to see more of Thomas McCarthy’s films. If his other films, The Station Agent and The Visitor, are as good as Win Win, I have been seriously missing out. Some critics, though enjoying the film, have labeled Win Win ‘uncharacteristically safe’ for the McCarthy resume. Sure, it does rely on some coincidences and it does all round up in a neat little package. But as... 

Movie Review: Senna, opening tomorrow at Dendy Newtown

Movie Review: Senna, opening tomorrow at Dendy Newtown
You don’t have to be a Formula One fan to be brought to tears by Senna. This vibrant, engrossing, powerful and ultimately tragic portrayal of the life and untimely death of beloved sporting icon Ayrton Senna, from British director Asif Kapadia, is documentary filmmaking at its most exciting. Winner of the World Cinema Audience Award for Documentaries at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, Senna... 

Movie Review: Tree of Life, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Movie Review: Tree of Life, now showing at Dendy Newtown
The Tree of Life has finally arrived in Australian cinemas. Notorious recluse and media-shy auteur Terrence Malick’s fifth feature has been highly anticipated for more than twelve months. It premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May where it was awarded the Palme d’Or. It actually opened in Australia at the Sydney Film Festival where I managed to catch a screening. But amongst all of the other... 

Movie Review: Mad Bastards (Showing at Dendy Cinema, Newtown)

Movie Review: Mad Bastards (Showing at Dendy Cinema, Newtown)
Mad Bastards is the debut feature from writer/director Brendan Fletcher, a man who is both successful in setting a compelling drama in the not-often seen Kimberley region of Australia and making an audience aware of the rich culture that exists there. While this confronting and powerful tale often reveals a lack of confidence and skill to effectively drive its narrative and sustain its audience’s... 

Exit Through The Gift Shop – A Banksy Film

Exit Through The Gift Shop - A Banksy Film
I headed to Dendy Newtown to check out a new film called “Exit Through The Gift Shop” a film by the notorious street artist, Banksy. Having sold out its sessions at the Sydney Film Festival I thought it would be worthwhile checking out when Dendy began showing it for a limited time. It is funny as hell. Hoax? Real? Documentary? Mockumentary? Fiction? I have no idea and as far as I am concerned...
