Smashed

13th December 2012 -

 Movie Review

Despite taking a full-on approach to the issue of alcoholism, filmmaker Ponsoldt undermines his own case by telling a story about the problem itself rather than the people caught up in it. And by avoiding...

Smashed

 Video

Kate and Charlie Hannah's marriage came about through their shared love of partying and getting drunk. All is well in their relationship as long as they are drinking together. However, when Kate's excessive partying pushes...

Youth in Revolt

5th February 2010 -

 Movie Review

Maybe this would work if you saw it before any other Michael Cera movies. Or any other quirky, over-written rom-coms. But after all that have gone before, this feels strangely awkward and unconvincing. And rather...

Youth In Revolt

11th January 2010 -

 Video

Watch the trailer for Youth In Revolt Nick Twisp is an average 16 year old boy, obsessed with the opposite sex yet he never has any luck finding a girl of his own. Whilst on...

It's Complicated

8th January 2010 -

 Movie Review

There's something enjoyable about silly romantic comedies that centre on middle-aged people for a change, especially when the characters are as well-cast as these. And even if the film is both over-long and rather pointless.Jane...

Lonesome Jim

4th January 2007 -

 Movie Review

If you were to saddle Garden State with a far less likeable lead and set it in Indiana, you might end up with this small gem, the latest from actor-cum-director Steve Buscemi. The Lonesome Jim...

Big Love: Season One

28th July 2006 -

 Movie Review

In its first season, Big Love was often summarily referred to as "the polygamy show." True enough, but as with many of HBO's finer offerings, it offers more than meets the eye. And the expectations....

My First Mister

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Looking back, My First Mister started to fall apart when John Goodman was first introduced as a pot-smoking, long-haired hippie remnant from The Big Lebowski. After that a terminal illness surfaces, then a character...

The Big Chill

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Fear The Big Chill backlash. Now that knocking off the classic has become popular, with ensemble, one-house comedies being churned out faster than sequels to American Kickboxer, it's easy to forget the film that...

Pecker

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

John Waters lives in two worlds: the trashy and aggressively weird neighborhoods of his native Baltimore and the artsy society circles of New York City. Pecker is his hilarious take on what happens when those...

 Movie Review

Silver City

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

What are they using on the moviemaking plantation this election year to have produced such a bumper crop of Democrat-leaning political films? The fertile harvest may have something to do with outright fear of a...

Nine Lives

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

A well-cast compilation film suffocating on its own self-importance, Nine Lives aims to tie together nine vastly different stories, but ends up telling hardly any of them well. The conceit of writer/director Rodrigo Garcia is...

Human Nature

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

If nothing else, writer Charlie Kaufman has created a style of comedy all his own. He is one of the very few screenwriters able to distinctly stamp his unmistakable personality on a film....

Citizen Ruth

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

It's been a while since I've anticipated a film this greatly and been let down so much by the actual product. Filmed from Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor's extremely entertaining script, Citizen Ruth had...

The Safety of Objects

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

For all of Robert Altman's greatness, his lasting legacy to future filmmakers may be the wrongheaded assumption that anyone can successfully weave together sprawling, multi-character stories into a coherent thematic experience. With the exception of...

Latter Days

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

It's not Angels in America, but Latter Days takes a stab at covering some of the same ground, namely what happens when a closet-case Mormon finally decides to let his freak flag fly and suffers...

Girl, Interrupted

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

Teen angst gets the "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" treatment in "Girl, Interrupted," James Mangold's disappointingly common and commercial follow-up to his earlier, low-budget wonders "Heavy" and "Cop Land."Poor Winona Ryder -- in her...

Sweet Home Alabama

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

Making only a minimal effort to be any different or better than the hundreds of other forgettable, predictable, almost-married-the-wrong-guy romantic comedies that have come before it, "Sweet Home Alabama" has the benefit of a talented,...

My First Mister

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

The grumpy Goth teenager played with questionable credibility by Leelee Sobieski in "My First Mister" is, at first, an amusingly caustic cuss. We see the world through her contempt-filled eyes and take on her dark...

Being John Malkovich

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

Unrivaled as the most inventive and wildly conceptual movie of 1999, there's just no way to explain "Being John Malkovich" without it sounding too weird to be for real.The daring feature debut of music video...

Silver City

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

The most deadpan, dead-on, sharply focused political satire in recent memory, "Silver City" methodically skewers George W. Bush (by proxy), the spineless corporate press (and their mistrustful underground adversaries), the billion-dollar candidate-making machinery of modern...
