Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show

The term showrunner is a relatively new one. In fact, as I type this, my word processor is failing to even recognise the word. If you were to ask the average person or even the average television viewer what the word showrunner means, they might take a guess and say that a showrunner is someone […]

Filmed in Supermarionation

Billed as the “definitive documentary about the culturally iconic puppetry and animation technique devised by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson”, “Filmed in Supermarionation” follows the AP Films studio (later Century 21) from its early work on the “Watch with Mother”-ish “Adventures of Twizzle”, through the phenomenon of “Thunderbirds”, and into its eventual decline and ignominy (AKA […]

Say When

Having spent her twenties comfortably inert, 28 year old Megan (Keira Knightley) reaches a crisis when she finds herself squarely in adulthood with no career prospects, no particular motivation to pursue any and no one to relate to, including her high school boyfriend (Mark Webber). When he proposes, Megan panics and given an opportunity to […]

Winter Sleep

Aydin, a former actor, runs a small hotel in central Anatolia with his young wife Nihal with whom he has a stormy relationship and his sister Necla who is suffering from her recent divorce. In winter as the snow begins to fall, the hotel turns into a shelter but also an inescapable place that fuels […]

Pulp Shawshank

As many cinephiles know, the Internet Movie Database has an ongoing ranking system known as the “Top 250.” Now given the nature of user ratings, this list is by no means the definitive source for film rankings, as for instance Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight somehow ranks number four on the list. That aside, the […]

A Girl Walks Home at Night

In a post-Twilight movie world, we’ve watched sadly as the once deadly vampire genre sauntered back into its coffin. Thankfully, first-time director and writer Ana Lily Amirpour has found a way to breathe new life into the obsidian fiends with her directorial debut, A Girl Walks Home at Night. In the film, we follow The […]

The Drop

While The Drop marks the final chapter in the career of the late, great, James Gandolfini, make no mistake, this is Tom Hardy’s movie. Hardy plays, Bob, the quiet, friendly neighbourhood bartender at Cousin Marv’s Bar owned by you guessed it, Cousin Marv, played by Gandolfini. Viewers of the film’s trailer might be disappointed, this […]

Five Best Female Directors at LFF 2014

Ana Lily Amirpour – A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night Ana Lily Amirpour has had an interest in short films since a young age, citing her first movie as a slumber party horror piece filmed on her dad’s camera at the age of 12. Since then she has continued with her unique spirit with […]

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Director Jonathan Liebesman takes us back to the sewers of New York where four reptilian brothers Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael and Donatello live with their master Splinter and spend their time practising martial arts in readiness for a day of reckoning. This soon arrives when the evil Foot Clan attempt to take control of the city, […]

A Smoke break with Jeff Leach

Amidst all of the chaos and the crime in Ben Pickering’s debut feature, The Smoke, Jeff Leach stands alone. Leach plays Dean, the best friend to the film’s protagonist, Brad Walker ( East Enders’ Matt DiAngelo). And while The Smoke brands itself as a sort of Guy Ritchie imitation game, from the degenerate crime bosses […]
