  • Lilya 4-ever

    Lilya 4-ever

    ★★★★★

    Lilya 4-ever is a Swedish film set predominantly in Russia, written and directed by Lukas Moodysson and starring a fifteen year old Oksana Akinshina. It deals with poverty, sex trafficking and hopelessness. It’s unremittingly bleak.

    Beware **Spoilers** ahead, as I found it almost impossible to sum this film up without recounting a great deal of the abject miseries inflicted upon the main two characters.

    Akinshina, the star of my favourite film of last year, ‘Sputnik,’ takes on the role of…

  • The Lady in the Car with Glasses and a Gun

    The Lady in the Car with Glasses and a Gun

    ★★★★★

    The Lady in the Car with Glasses and a Gun is a French mystery/thriller starring Scottish actress Freya Mavor and I reviewed it once before already but as this is now the fourth time I’ve watched it I decided I should probably admit, that to me at least, it’s worthy of five stars.

    Now, it’s not a movie without problems. It’s a mystery/thriller movie that ties it’s mystery up way too neatly at the end, whilst somehow also managing to…

  • Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    ★★½

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage is the thirty-fifth feature film listed in the Wikipedia filmography of Tom Hardy. It’s a sequel to the first ‘Venom’ movie and is basically more of the same, though this time with a lot more British cast members.

    When I say that this film is more of the same, I mean it. Hardy is still pining for Michelle Williams, Williams is still with the doctor from the first film and still seems massively out of…

  • Capone

    Capone

    ★★

    Capone is the thirty-fourth feature film listed in the Wikipedia filmography of Tom Hardy. After having played the Kray twins and Charlie Bronson, Tommy Boy takes on yet another notorious criminal, Al Capone, though this time without much success.

    This isn’t a movie about Capone in his heyday. This is Capone after his release from prison on compassionate grounds due to his deteriorating mental and physical condition after thirty years of suffering from syphilis. The film is directed by Josh…

  • Chernobyl: Abyss

    Chernobyl: Abyss

    ★★

    Chernobyl: Abyss is a Russian film about the Chernobyl disaster directed by and starring Danila Kozlovsky alongside Oksana Akinshina as his love interest.

    It’s almost impossible to watch this movie without the excellent HBO miniseries covering the same disaster competing for attention in your head. The aesthetic similarities between the two projects are numerous, but also almost entirely superficial. Whereas the miniseries was an in-depth and realistic examination of both the political and humanitarian elements of the disaster, this Russian…

    1 Night In San Diego

    ½

    1 Night in San Diego is the twenty-third feature film listed in the Wikipedia filmography of Alexandra Daddario and that is why I watched it. This is absolutely fucking horrible on every conceivable level. Watching this film was one of the worst experiences of my life.

    I’ve watched twenty-two other films in my chronological trawl through Alexandra Daddario’s career and few have mustered more than a single star review score from me but this is far and away the worst.…
