Pre-2016 Film Reviews
Fists in the Pocket
- Excerpt: Comedy at its darkest in this transfixing black and white beauty from the golden days of Italian cinema.
Robin and Marian
- Excerpt: Robin and Marian is at times a raucous film but it is also a heartfelt love story. The ending might surprise people but on the whole, this is a film of a lion in winter, who has one last roar left to him.
- Excerpt: Robin Hood may be flawed, but its a nice delightful little romp that one forgives much of it.
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
- Excerpt: I’m surprised that I ended up liking Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves the second time round. Maybe I’ve grown softer and more forgiving.
- Excerpt: … a rambling confessional that plays like a trashy tell-all bestseller brought to life by an ambitious film student who hadn’t quite decided whether she wants to direct for the art-house or for the late night cable market.
That Obscure Object of Desire
- Excerpt: Buñuel’s final film is one of his most tightly controlled and plotted movies, the work of a 77-year old master intent on putting the final punctuation on a distinguished career.
