welcome_to_new_york
★★★

Dir: Abel Ferrara

(2013)

Pusher of the darkest cinematic material in the great city of New York, Abel Ferrara is once again scraping the bottom of a barrel marked “depravity” with this extraordinary tale of a sex addicted banker with political aspirations. Based on the trail of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, at the time the head of the IMF, who sexually assaulted a chamber maid in a glitzy New…

Under The Skin

Our ★★★★★ REVIEW for Jonathan Glazer’s Remarkable Under The Skin

under-the-skin-jpg-20140410
★★★★

Dir: Jonathan Glazer

(2014) 

From the opening moment of this, Jonathan Glazer‘s third film, we are thrown head first into nothingness. A point of light grows, morphing darkly into a fading sun, a space ship, an eye. A voice is practicing, some kind of language comprehension test. It’s an introduction which is immediately throat grabbing. Where are we? Outer space? The eye blinks and just…

Locke Tom Hardy
★★★★☆

Hardy is the Lockeof the film’s title and Ivan Locke is as strong and safe as his name suggests. A famed professional on the building sites which he works, he decides to…

Bad Neighbors

REVIEW: Bad Neighbors - crude, disgusting and hillarious…

Neighbors_1600
★★★★

Dir: Nicholas Stoller

(2014)

The charming and funny Seth Rogen stars alongside an equally loveable Rose Byrne in this nasty piece of frat house fun. Bad Neighbors (or just Neighbors if you like) is Animal House for a generation still trying desperately to shake the damage that the gross out comedy did with American Pie in the latter half of the 90s. Or more accurately, and perhaps more…
