The Ladykillers: Corrosive, Dark And Beautifully British

Rating: 8 out of 10. As if I wasn’t going to dip my toe in for more Peter Sellers! Yes, the pre-eminent British comedian returns, but nine years earlier than Dr. Strangelove in 1955 comedy The Ladykillers – yet, Sellers isn’t the one that steals the show… The plot is simple, yet oh-so-effective: dapper […]

Memento: The Thriller That’s Impossible To Forget

Rating: 8.5 out of 10. SPOILERS! As I write these reviews, I (mostly…) attempt to tentatively link each film to similar ones in a sort of theme, I guess, over a longer period of time. I went through a Danish/Thomas Vinterberg phase for a time; any of my more pious readers will know paranoid […]

When All That’s Left is Love (2019)

Director: Eric Gordon Running time: 1hr 17mins In the end, statistics are just numbers – and this means they always have an element of comfortable distance to them. For instance, 44 million people worldwide living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related form of dementia. In a world of 7 billion human beings, the true horror […]

Jojo Rabbit (2019) Review – F*ck Off, Hitler!

Ever since I’ve seen the first trailer for Jojo Rabbit, I knew that this will be a film like no other. I had faith, as Taika Waititi has proven himself several times now (from What We Do in the Shadows (2014), Thor: Ragnarok (2017) to somewhat underseen and underappreciated Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) which if […]

The Grey (2011) Review – Once More Into The Fray

When this movie came out back in 2011, I remember movie fans talking about it a lot. Unfortunately, most of that talk was about how people felt betrayed by the trailer, as it made it seem like an action movie. What didn’t help the cause was the fact the director removed a scene of Liam […]

Review: “Settlers”

The western and science fiction genres share several similar themes, particularly when the subject of the latter is exploration into the unknown, essentially transporting the frontier from the American West to the edges of outer space. It can be exciting and fascinating and introspective when done right. Unfortunately, writer and director Wyatt Rockefeller’s film “Settlers” […]

The Conversation: The Dangers Of Playing God

Rating: 8.5 out of 10. Sometimes, it’s simply just hard to put things into words. Which, I know, is silly, as I clack-clackity-clack away here at my computer. But sometimes, things are really too brilliant to try and justify – it feels disrespectful to do so to the Sistine Chapel ceiling, say. So forgive […]

Metin Erksan / Sevmek Zamanı / 1965

Sinema yönetmen sanatıdır. Erksan dünya çapında ustadır. Bu aralar sevdiğim siyah beyaz filmleri yeniden izliyorum, pek çoğunu yazmışım, yazmadıklarımı da zaman zaman eklemeye gayret edeceğim. Konusunu herkes biliyordur; Halil, Meral’in fotoğrafına aşık olur; Meral, Halil’in aşkına. Mekân, tüm bu öykünün yayıldığı üçüncü bir varlığın ifadesine dönüşür ki Erksan’ın alametifarikası da kendini böyle gösterir. Öykü gözlerimizin […]
