Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark is exactly the kind of horror movie you want to hate. It’s a remake, it involves a child in peril, and it contains some (and I say “some”) very nasty violence. Just watch–you’ll have trouble hating it. Guillermo del Toro’s new collaborative effort with first-time director Troy Nixey is, […]

Headhunters

At first I have to say I read the novel of which this movie is based upon, “Headhunters” by Jo Nesbø, two years ago. A thriller I liked quite a lot. Usually a novel is better than the film. Well, here Morten Tyldum (Acclaimed films as “Buddy” and “Most people usually live in China”), succeeded […]

Circumstance

Circumstance is a beautiful, luscious, sensual and sexually charged drama, done masterfully and tastefully. It is a visual film, but it is also blessed with witty dialogs and good music. It deals with common and real youth and family issues in Iran, and potentially in other countries…Circumstance is about two liberated, free-spirited 16 year old […]

Julia’s Eyes

The leading lady Belen Rueda is gorgeous….this is what captured my attention to begin with. She is a pretty good actress, very expressive and convincing and the supporting cast is very good too. The movie is set in a small village in Spain and the visuals are very believable and the lighting decor etc is […]

Higher Ground

Higher Ground is a beautiful and stirring tale based on a personal memoir about a woman who, after growing up in a Christian church, starts asking questions about what she’s been taught. She delicately steps around the admonition not to preach to men, quietly disobeys the order against exploring her spirituality, and finally, at a […]

Swinging with the Finkels

I take my hat off to Jonathan Newman for making a British film that isn’t all doom and gloom. There are quite a few LOL moments in this movie, not just from the action but from the dialog as well. It has an American feel to it which I like and think is clever as […]

The Family Tree

This movie is a pleasant surprise, with a great cast and a “Twin Peaks” sense of weirdness underneath the veneer of suburbia. Hope Davis is a bored, bitchy housewife who pours her energy into fund raisers for ridiculous causes and a kinky affair with her neighbor. Her daughter is the school slut, her son is […]

Brighton Rock

I am not good at long reviews but I didn’t see the original or read the book. Therefore I am judging this as a movie in itself rather than comparing it to the original. I thought it was excellent, the drab interiors, the plain simplicity of Rose, so well acted and the sadness in her […]
