|35 T2||American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story (2017) - May 19, 2017
"A narcissistic and uncomfortably romantisised account of a story that would have been more suited in a film form, rather than an overly-long TV series. The show had an unpleasant mixture of expository, interactive and performative documentary - the last being there only for the purpose of showing HD boobs (which is good in a way), the mediocre quality was ruined by the last episode which was laughably self-indulgent. Kudos to Mario Grigorov and the great intro song. And Polanski what the fuck??"
|65 T8||Poltergeist (1982) - May 18, 2017
"The background information about the actors - Heather O'Rourke and Dominique Dunne - and their tragic story following production of the film adds a whole different layer to the viewing experience. The gradual build-up of the atmosphere was executed in a masterful way, with the film gradually descending into the hectic and deranged second half which offered moments, characters and interactions of a bizarre and other-worldly feel. Some of the shots and motives in the film were unforgettable."
|70 T9||Manhattan (1979) - May 17, 2017
""Art house paedo," I was texted by a friend immediately after walking out of the cinema. In retrospect, with Allen's personal history, his character's relationship with the 17 year-old Tracy (Hemingway) was cringy at best, the last scene of the film multiplying the feeling by a hundred. Having said that, Diane Keaton was spectacularly gorgeous, with the scene in the observatory hitting all the right marks. Beautifully shot, the film would surely be a wet dream for Allen fans. /c BFI Southbank"
|75 T9||A Single Man (2009) - May 14, 2017
"What a gorgeous piece of film-making. Is there a woman more beautiful than Julianne Moore? The film is a serene and humble account of a man's final actions, the last choices that he makes in his life and the piece of mind he so longs to achieve at the shadow of his lover's death. A story about redemption with beautiful performances, score, camera work and montage filled with love and passion and intimacy, resulting in a piece of art which reinforces all the good reasons of why cinema is great."
|20 T1||Jimi Hendrix: The Last 24 Hours (2004) - May 12, 2017
"See Jimi Hendrix: Feedback. You've seen this. Literally - the shots, the video footage, the interviewees and the extracts of dialogue are the same. It's film recycling at its worst. Avoid."
|30 T2||Jimi Hendrix: Feedback (2005) - May 11, 2017
"What a load of rubbish. Poor choices of interviews, obvious technical problems in filming them, poor selection of videos, poor angle, poor compilation. If it wasn't for the occasional Jimi Hendrix song played and shown (always from the exact same concert), the film would have been unbearable. I understand the argument that the film-makers haven't had access to proper video materials and interviewees in order to compile a better film, but that doesn't make the current one any better. It's shit."
|25 T1||Grace of Monaco (2014) - Apr 25, 2017
"Uninspired and forced, the film doesn't have much going for it. The only good thing I was able to extract form the film is information - the political context and characters were interesting to know about. But then again I could've just read Wikipedia or something."
|25 T1||The Last Witch Hunter (2015) - Mar 31, 2017
"Pretty bad but was still entertaining enough to be watchable. There were a handful of almost decent moments in the film, but overall was very forgettable with bland and silly writing, non-existent characters and even poor action. Olaf Olafsson is the highlight of the film. Rose Leslie is kind of cute too."
