Dallas Buyers Club (2013)

Get this – Matthew McConaughey went from lousy rom-coms, like Ghost of Girlfriends Past, to starring in some of the best films of recent times, like Interstellar. He’s become an actor with so many shades, it’s hard to keep track. Dallas Buyers Club was key to McConaughey’s transition away from comedic roles, with many dubbing his change “The McConaissance”.

Mulholland Drive (2001): Pure Art and Vision

Most people say that you have to watch Mulholland Drive a few times to really understand it. I call BS! David Lynch’s classic film is notorious for being complicated, and while the central message is very ambiguous, the basic plot really isn’t all that confusing. Yet it’s far from a straight story, as it’s set in a dream-like […]

Gone Baby Gone (2007), directed by Ben Affleck

Gone Baby Gone – a tale of mystery and child abductions, with Casey Affleck playing the lead. I have wanted to see this film for a long while and I’m happy to say it didn’t disappoint. It’s one those films that make you consider a moral dilemma (what would have I done?). Any movie that does […]
