Afternoon Delight (2013)

Rachel (Kathryn Hahn) sits in her car as soapy dollops of rainbow coloured water from the car wash flow overhead. She fidgets, she moves from seat to seat, she looks out into the distance passing the time. This opening scene for Jill…

Lovelace (2013)

Peter Sarsgaard is Chuck, Chris Noth is Anthony Romano, Bobby Cannavale is Butchie Peraino, Hank Azaria is Gerry Damiano and Adam Brody is Harry Reems. If you don't know the names, although the last one should give it a way, then that…

Magic Magic (2013)

Writer-director Sebastian Silva has given audiences something quite strange. A psychological thriller that never really thrills, and often borders on outright comedy. If that comedy was intentional then that wouldn't be a problem, but I…

Killer Joe (2011)

This black comedy is the big screen adaptation of synonymous play by famous author Tracy Letts. Fittingly enough the first version of the play was staged at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1994, as the U.K. Premiere Gala was held to open…

Mr Nobody (2009)

To try and explain the plot of this film requires simplification that does the film a huge disservice. On a basic level Mr Nobody is about the different choices and paths we can take in life and the doubt that comes with those decisions but…

Kaboom (2011)

With the exception of 2004’s Mysterious Skin there has always been a distinct lack of depth to Gregg Araki’s film output. What he simply does is put a cynical eye on modern youth, their horrible sexual encounters, drug habits, the shitty…
