EIFF 2013: Wrapping It All Up

That's it. Another EIFF comes and goes, and a few of us Flickfeasters can now put our feet up and enjoy a bit of a breather after a job well done. Because, let's be honest, we're pretty much at the top of the pile when it comes to coverage…

My Dog Killer (2013)

A slow, thoughtful and thought-provoking movie that looks at culture and class in modern Slovakia, My Dog Killer will infuriate as many people as it pleases. After a fairly dull opening, I wondered if this would be yet another movie that I…
