Review: The Act Of Killing (DVD/BR)

The Review: To my mind there are two Westerners who have migrated to Indonesia to make their visionary movies: Gareth Evans and now Joshua Oppenheimer. In my view, only one of them has been truly successful in creating a film that thrills, excites, appalls and shatters the soul. And here’s a …

Review: The Worlds End (DVD/BR)

The Review: (SPOILER FREE) – First Shaun, then Hot Fuzz, now The World’s End – ye, finally, the nine-years-in-the-making “Cornetto” trilogy pants, puffs and collapses at the finishing line with this comedy about a bunch of mates who reunite via their goofy, oddball (and rather annoying) friend Gary King, played by …
