Image
  1. Pig - Michael Sarnoski  2. Another Round - Thomas Vinterberg  3. French Dispatch - Wes Anderson  4.  Licorice Pizza - Paul Thomas Anderson  5. T he Green Knight - David Lowery  6. West Side Story - Steven Spielberg  7. The Power of the Dog - Jane Campion  8. The Card Counter - Paul Schrader  9. Riders of Justice - Anders Thomas Jensen  10. No Time To Die - Cary Joji Fukunaga  After another year plagued by lockdowns and all manner of distractions, I'm surprised that we were treated to such an exceptional year of cinematic delights. From bombastic blockbusters, to intimate tales of personal discovery, the year kind of had something for everyone. These are my favourite cinematic experiences for the year. I’m not suggesting they were the year’s “best” films, as for me that’s a redundant term for art. Some great films couldn’t sneak into the top 10.  I’d love to hear what your favourite film of the year was. Feel free to drop a line in the comments below, or come over to pla

Candyman - review

Image
Nia DaCosta’s Candyman (2021) serves both as an examination of intergenerational trauma, and as a portrait of the scars left by gentrification. Just as Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible Man was a metaphor for domestic violence, DaCosta’s Candyman grafts issues of racial and social inequality onto the frame of a slasher film. Simply put, Candyman is hands down one of the best films of the year. Sadly I’m well aware of my limitations as a reviewer. In fact I’ve never even considered myself a reviewer as such, just a guy who loves films. By all this I mean, this is exactly the type of film which makes me wish I could expertly convey my appreciation for the craft on display. So keeping that in mind, I kindly request that you make time for this one. IMDB describes the film as “ A "spiritual sequel" to the horror film Candyman (1992) that returns to the now-gentrified Chicago neighborhood where the legend began. ”  Given every film nowadays seems to be an audition for the next Marve

Old - review (contains spoilers)

Image
  A thriller about a family on a tropical holiday who discover that the secluded beach where they are relaxing for a few hours is somehow causing them to age, reducing their entire lives into a single day... M. Night Shyamalan’s latest mind-bending, twisty-turny effort Old , fails to live up to the best of his filmography. Perhaps he’s unfairly labelled as the twist guy, but we don’t get to choose our monikers in this life. His career has justifiably been built upon an ability to pull the rug out from under the audience, which perhaps has left us a little jaded over the years.Twists and turns are always appreciated, but they must be in service of the plot or character development. Sadly here the inevitable reveal didn’t really serve either.  Old primarily takes place on a idyllic beach, where a group of strangers are experiencing a phenomenon of accelerated ageing. I’ll be frank, there’s an intriguing kernel of a story at the heart of Old , it’s just never fully realized. The expositi
