American Psycho (2000)

Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) is the kind of guy that would ridicule anyone who went to see a psychiatrist, meaning he would never go to see one himself. Well, he really needs to since he spends his spare time killing people for fun. (Or does he?) I’ve seen American Psycho a couple of times now, so you’re […]

Zodiac (2007)

There are crime films and then there are TRUE crime films. Zodiac falls into the latter category. It’s based on California’s notorious Zodiac killings, in which the killer in question took great pride in giving clues by sending letters to the press. Yet still, the cops hit brick wall after brick wall in their pursuit. “The Zodiac” was […]

Good Time (2017)

Good Time has seedy characters that make bad decision after bad decision, but it’s so fast-paced, their mistakes pull you deeper into the chaos. A chilling performance from Robert Pattinson, coupled with edgy crime-drama, and we’ve got ourselves a damn good film. It’s an adrenalised story that takes place over 24 hours. Pattinson plays Connie, who […]

Wheelman (2017)

Now, this is what I’m talking about! Wheelman is a no-nonsense, beat-the-clock thriller that traps you in a car with Frank Grillo for 82 minutes. It’s the kind movie that’s better with the volume cranked up. You might want to bring some friends over because it’s high tempo and makes you want to cheer on […]

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) – psychopath, cannibal and evil genius – is already behind bars in his first appearance in The Silence of the Lambs. His entrance to the movie is the stuff of legend. The camera pans around to Lector’s prison cell and we see him standing perfectly still, wide-eyed with a level of arrogance unknown […]

IT COMES AT NIGHT (2017)

When you watch the trailer for It Comes At Night and read the tag line (“Fear turns men into monsters”), you’ll assume the film will be a straight horror, but actually, what you get is a low-key mystery about a family forced to take shelter after a virus has wiped out civilisation. Set in a […]

Buried alive. One man, one coffin. That’s the basic set-up in this tense thriller. Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds), a US truck driver working in Iraq, is the guy trapped in the coffin. He wakes up as the film starts with no idea of who put him there and why. As the events unfold, you’ll be […]

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 […]

We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011)

I’d be lying if I said We Need To Talk About Kevin, is about an innocent boy who grows up to be a tragic villain, like Anakin Skywalker, from the Star Wars prequels. Truth is, Kevin is a monster from the start. He’s presented as a devil child, an omen, a bad seed – you get the picture. […]
