Heartless Review


OK
Layered and dense, there's clearly a lot going on in this dark thriller, although it's not easy to figure out what that might be. It's hypnotically perplexing, like a David Lynch movie without the emotional resonance.

Jamie (Sturgess) is a shy photographer who avoids contact with people because of the large birthmark on his face.

Then a series of events propels him into a nightmarish new reality in which a demon-like man (Mawle), his young assistant (Mistry) and their intense weapons expert (Marsan) offer him freedom from his scars in exchange for an act of chaos. He also falls in love with a girl (Poesy) who seems too good to be true.

The Krays Review


OK
The Brits love their gangster movies, especially when they're about, er, Brits. Here we have a tale of twin brothers in the 1930s who, thanks to early traumas, ended up turning from upstanding youths into die-hard racketeers. This is their story (from childhood to incarceration), dutifully (and rather artlessly) chronicled on film. Not much to see here, move along.

The Passion Of Darkly Noon Review


OK
Darkly Noon is Brendan Fraser, a conflicted stutterer recently escaped from a Branch Davidian-esque cult besieged by the feds. His passion is Ashley Judd (blonde, braless, sweaty, and with unshaven pits), whose home he stumbles upon in the woods. What happens when worlds collide? Think Sling Blade, but far sleepier.
