Easy Rider

Viewed – 10 October Blu-Ray Everyone knows the song… ‘Born To Be Wild’ by Steppenwolf – it’s probably the most famous thing about this 1969 classic road movie, and along with its cast of Hollywood rebels like Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson – the movie was destined for the history books. Yet does […]

Uncle Frank (2020)

Beth (Sophia Lillis) is an impressionable young woman starting college in New York City, which is just about as far as she can get, both physically and mentally, from her hometown, the small working-class hamlet of Creekville, South Carolina, where the spectre of the past still lingers, despite being well into the 1970s. As a […]

SABRINA (1954)

Audrey Hepburn wears the crown as golden age actress of class from her era. In every role, she carries herself with the ethereal grace of a princess. Even in her quintessential black leggings and flats, she remains the icon of fashion, elegance, and simplicity. In Sabrina, she plays the innocent chauffeur’s daughter in love with […]

Inferno (1980)

MY CALL:  Despite being a practically witchless witch movie with clunky storytelling, much of Argento’s unique style reserves a place in the halls of classic horror film appreciation. As far as “witch movies” go, I’d consider this the weakest of his Three Mothers trilogy. MOVIES LIKE Suspiria: Well, there’s the original Suspiria (1977) and its […]

John’s Horror Corner: Inferno (1980), another of Argento’s ‘style over substance’ classics about a witch.

Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt is a biopic about the political theorist and author of The Origins of Totalitarianism and Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil, among other scholarly works. It’s not a study of her whole life, however, or even close to it; at least 90% of the film concerns Arendt’s aforementioned book […]

Lifetime Film Review: The Wrong Wedding Planner (dir by David DeCoteau)

“She was the wrong wedding planner!” says Detective Jones (Vivica A. Jones) in the Lifetime film, The Wrong Wedding Planner, and Detective Jones has a point!  Typically, a good wedding planner will put together a memorable wedding without trying to kill the bride.  I mean, I’m sure that there have been murderous but talented wedding […]

Hillbilly Elegy (2020)

I’m not sure what any of us expected from Hillbilly Elegy, but if it was a good film, it seems to have been something of a tall order, and one that simply could not be met in any conceivable way by a film that seems, more than anything else, entirely unnecessary to begin with. Naturally, […]

Alman Dışavurumculuğuna En Başarılı Örnek: Dr.Caligari’nin Muayenehanesi (1920), Robert Wiene

Proxima (2020)

A lot is simmering below the surface of Proxima, the daring space drama (which doesn’t actually show the proverbial “final frontier” at all, one of several fascinating directorial decisions made in the creation of this film) from Alice Winocour, who plucks a number of timely, incredibly relevant themes and throws them together into what can […]

Elmer Gantry (1960)

When composing the canon of great American films, there is one in particular that occupies a very strange space – Elmer Gantry is a film mostly remembered for the dynamic performance given by Burt Lancaster, who was already one of the industry’s most interesting leading actors, and very little else. Richard Brooks was a filmmaker […]
