It is always easy to tell when a director knew exactly what they wanted their film to be; it comes out in the surety of its execution and the high quality of its performances. Loosely inspired by the Oscar Wilde short story of the same name, Clio Barnard’s The Selfish Giant is one such film.
Auto-erotic-asphyxiation, waves of whisky, mounds of cocaine; Filth does what it says on the tin.
Kevin MacDonald is a talented director. The Last King of Scotland was an excellent morally objectionable and ethically grey drama centered on characters caught in a crisis of compromise. How I Live Now is the director’s latest, and although it is peppered with similar sentiment and high concept, it does not quite achieve its multi-tiered genre ambitions, but damn does it try.
Again, where to start with 250 minutes of movie?

In town to promote his latest offering – Bad Grandpa – Johnny Knoxville lived up to his reputation and bent the rules when it came to picking a Five Star Film.
Director Ridley Scott and screenwriter Cormac McCarthy have collaborated on a cynical examination of crime that superbly portrays illegal behaviour in a foul way which is exactly what the characters and the setting deserves.
The first thing anyone will notice about Wang Bing’s documentary ‘Til Madness Do Us Part is its formidable length. At 227 minutes, it was a daunting prospect, but one that proved both rewarding and frustrating. I’m finding it a little hard to wrap my head around this film so bear with me.
The rain seems to finally be easing up, which means dashes between cinemas are marred more by sweat than precipitation. My day today was spent entirely at GoMA, though, which—in contrast with the Palace Barracks—is well air-conditioned (some would say too much, but I’ll take that over Barracks 2’s swampy heat any day). Consequently, my films today ranged from simple to epic but always artistic.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire achieves what every sequel should strive for – a film that surpasses its predecessor in every way.
A rainy Sunday meant only three films, once again very different. I’ll talk more about The Square in a separate review, which leaves one film experimenting with a new cinematic language and another steeped in the language of old.
For those of us who don’t live there, the Egyptian revolution of 2011 may seem like a distant historical event given the speed at which media cycles operate these days. Many may not be aware that that revolution has been ongoing, or at least not to this extent. This has been a battle fought every day for more than two years now, and it’s still not over.
The first Saturday means the big films start to rear their heads. I opted for a quieter day, however, with a mix of films which couldn’t be more different from each other.
