9. Sin City - 9/10
Still hypnotically stylish, can't wait for the sequel though sadly casting changes have been made.

13-Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Cuaron, 2004) 9/10

Without a doubt the finest Potter film, one that works even divorced from the stringent narrative the book forces on it. Most of this is down to the addition of Thewlis and Oldman, but it's also clear the younger actors are coming into their own. Additions from the page such as Harry discussing his only memory of his parents are inspired, and the whole thing is shot in a much more interesting style than the stagey Columbus films. It also has easily the finest finale in any Potter film, managing to be both clever and exciting. Even the Quidditch match doesn't suck!

Ajami (Scandar Copti, Yaron Shani, 2009, GER/ISR)- Israel has currently some of the most fascinating films being released, from their very surrealistic yet naturalistic war films (Waltz with Bashir and Lebanon), their dramas to this multi-story non-linear crime saga set in Ajami, Jaffa, which plays like City of God only far less flashy, more ambigious, wisely ends mostly unresolved and far more restrained. The acting is mostly excellent, the direction and scripting is excellent, the direction is effective and almost everything within it works, being shocking, fascinating and genuinely heart-breaking in some areas (Karim's extreme sadness that she cannot be with a Muslim Arab cause she's Christian is a stand-out). It feels honest, the depiction of every side seems fair, and the execution of it is rather marvellous.

(9)

Who Can Kill a Child? (Narciso Ibanez Serrador, 1976, SPA)- There are some very barmy things in this, the opening footage of the children and the theme of kids taking revenge of adults doesn't really work in moments and feels disjointed even if it sets up for an incredible horror scenario and sets a mood, the soundtrack goes from eerily creepy to complete corn and cheesyness depending on the moment, there is a moment where a piece of paper is sticked on a newspaper that is worthy of a Z-grade movie. However it has some very good things, some very very good things, you have the incredible scenario, a real sense of tension that is slowly built-up throughout, incredible framing and shots, decent performances (!) and the incredibly effective idea of setting the horror mostly during daylight, and doing it all effectively. It's so good that you can easily forgive the dafter stuff or those things that don't really work.

Also, for those asking, should I find a child version of Pigeon Army walking down the street, I would totally kill him.

(8)

The Imposter (Bart Layton, 2012, UK)- The incredibly accliamed doc set around the incredibly bizzarre case of a fascinating if outright creepy and cruel Frenchman who pretended to be the disappeared son of a Texan family. For all the fascinating and occasionally sad material, the truly incredible work done with the editing and direction (from the way it unites the documentary footage with the reconstuctions) and Bourdin's incredibly interesting and scary persona, there are some patches of it which feel dull, with a third act that does more then enough to fix any problems the film had in its middle act. The third act is where its at.

(8)

Carnage (Roman Polanski, 2011, POL/GER/FRA/SPA)- I like Polanski's output, I like Yasmina Reza and her plays, I like every actor involved here, so I have no idea what my problem here is. Polanski has basically made an entire career about what it going on here, from the claustrophobic locations to the themes found in Reza's God of Carnage. The acting is all-round excellent with the males standing out, the direction is occasionally fine enough and the opening and ending are excellent, problem is, I just struggle to see why this was done. It can feel long at 80 minutes and whatever it was saying on civlity is stated half-way through before it becomes a contest between the actors on who can portray the bastard upper-middle-class person best and some of the more complex characterization in the play seems lost, Polanski's direction and the editing rarely really elevate this from a filmed stage-play (very disappointing when considering Knife in the Water, Cul-de-Sac or Death and the Maiden), and I'm not sure if this is a testament of the film's power or a flaw, it's one of the very few films to ever leave me with a horrible taste after watching it (the others being Chicago, Salo, A Serbian Film and reading about Sex and the City 2). Some of the dialouge feels stilted and other actions contrived. YET, the performances are excellent and the four actors are at their best here, the ending is sort-off brilliant and shows another side of what the film was saying for 70 minutes, it's not really dull in any moment and there are some hilarious moments. It mostly works quite well. Maybe it's just that "Upper-middle class white people are nothing but hypocritical bastard shits, here's 80 minutes of it showing JUST THAT" is by far the least interesting theme Polanski has done in his career and others have done it far more interestingly by making something that doesn't feel like a filmed stage-play.

Great review as always, Rick.

Have you thought about voting in our Oscar poll, btw?


My mum shagged a moustache for 17 years. I call that moustache dad.

16-Play It Again, Sam (Ross, 1972) 9/10

A mix of brilliant slapstick and some fun wordplay, and easily the best of the three "early, funny ones" I've seen from Allen.

He didn't?

*Checks*

Well, shit. I assumed he did, mostly due to that one scene where the camera stares at the tits of a young dancing girl for ages.

Technically brilliant, although at times it does seem like, "Look at what I can do", which often detracts from any potential depth. Still, at just shy of two minutes, this is an entertaining, if not essential, short.

Body Heat (Lawrence Kasdan, 1981) is a sweaty, scintillating neo-noir, in which the horniest woman in America (Kathleen Turner) shags a moustache (William Hurt) into killing her husband. You almost want Hurt to die or go to jail so his willy can have a rest. While it's an homage to vintage '40s noir like Double Indemnity and The Postman Always Rings Twice (right down to a nattily incorporated fedora), Body Heat also stands superbly on its own two feet: the dialogue is colourful, the plotting keeps you guessing - despite being rich in fatalism - and Turner is dynamic as a woman so warm that she must take off her clothes at every opportunity. Hurt is wooden in places (particularly his penis), the revelations near the end - while gripping - are perhaps revealed too conveniently, and the film should really have ended on a freeze-frame of that photo, but it's still a classy, compelling crime flick, with a sweltering, stifling atmosphere and showy supporting turns from Mickey Rourke and Ted Danson - almost unrecognisable with a fringe that disguises the sheer length of his Easter Island head. And while the writer-director's idea of his hero keeping an illicit affair under wraps is to have him lob a chair through a plate glass window at his lover's house, that scene with the contract discussions is worthy of Wilder. They don't call his Law-rence Kasdan for nothing. (3.5)


heh-heh. that was funny. funnier than kevin bridges stand-up, if that's any comfort.

They'd be awarding, for me, greater creativity. Even Johnnie To handled the windows thing better in one of his romance films a couple of years ago if I'm remembering it rightly (given it was one of To's romances - I'm still not sure I get those!)

I'd be happy to see Head Over Heels take it though. I'd say Logoramma might suggest they can sometimes give it elsewhere than Disney/Pixar type stuff but, then, Logoramma wasn't very good.

Saw John Dies at the End again today. I'd still very much recommend it but, really disapointingly, the festival co-curator told us the UK distribution deal had fallen through. Would I be right in thinking Bubba Ho-Tep was only a DVD job over here too (outside of festivals)?

If you watched it again today you might be able to help, is my sig quote right? From memory it isn't, but when I googled it that's what came up. I thought there was something else in there.

And it's been some time, but I thought Bubba did get a short cinema run. Might be wrong though.

Was she chasing him with the whip rather than beating?

I still love the totally guy line ' that door CANNOT be opened'. But you'd need the visual accompaniment

I can't remember if I asked you before whether you enjoyed it?

I asked other half - he's pretty sure it was penises not dicks (which sounds right). Also, lashing, but I'm sure there was chasing in there somewhere.

Chased in a forest - the chasing probably came before what she was doing with the whip of penises.

Ya think we're encouraging more people to go see it?

Bark Lee was adorable - the kind of dog that makes you want to head to the pet shop the minute you leave the cinema.

Yes! I knew there was a forest in there! I think it was

Sinister (Scott Derrickson; 2012)

Ethan Hawke is a one hit wonder true crime writer who relocates his family to a house which is also the scene of a murder. Up in the attic is a box of 8MM reels, all of which contain footage of grisly murders. As Hawke investigates the murders freaky shit happens and he finds himself being terrorized by spectral kids and the bassist out of Slipknot.

There's a decent premise at the core of the film, but it's ultimately a muddled and rather silly affair which is seriously lacking in scares or tension. It also does itself no favors by riffing on much more superior films like The Shining and The Exorcist. Ethan Hawke, meanwhile, stumbles throughout the film looking utterly bored while he waits for the next Richard Linklater film to come along. It's not a truly horrendous film by any means, but coming from the director who made the reasonably entertaining Exorcism of Emily Rose, it's a bit of a shame that Sinister doesn't really live up to its title.

Flight (2012, Zemeckis, 1st viewing)

There were certain points in Flight where I thought Zemeckis might have delivered a decent film, something he hasn't done since the 80's. That might have been when Denzel (who is quite good but the Best Actor nom is a bit much), a funnily vulgar John Goodman and Don Cheadle were on screen but I still managed to walk out of Flight disliking it quite a lot. All of it's good points like the intense plane sequences in the first half hour, the few good performances and the occasional humorous scene or so were erased by a glaring amounts of cliches and annoyances that plagued the film. There was also a scene that I swear glorified drug use a little bit but I might have been reading a bit too much into it. Either way, Flight could have had potential but it frankly pissed it nearly all away. You do get to see a decent performance from Denzel, a pony-tailed John Goodman swearing whilst peddling drugs and Catalina from My Name is Earl naked during the first minute or so of the film so it's not a total loss. It's just very mehh.

Antonio Banderas and Mark Strong play Sultans who've had a truce for 15 years, but the peace is disturbed when oil is discovered. Quite lavish and epic but ends up not gelling together and feels quite empty.

I thought the first half, where he's watching the tapes and spotting weird shit just out of frame, was excellent. It's just a shame that the second half ignored the tapes and had Ethan Hawke run away from the Great God Peekaboo.

Plus the ending might have been better were it not GIVEN AWAY ON THE FUCKING POSTER.
