  • EIFF 2013: Days of Grace Movie Review | Thoughts On Film
    things are so muddled in this gritty world of perpetual crime and monologues that it becomes hard to care The whole thing is bathed in a golden sheen owing somewhat of a debt to Steven Soderbergh s Traffic because of its overly kinetic filmmaking style and grubby visual aesthetic but without the intellect to back it up There s a pulsating almost assaultive musical score from a collaborative effort between Nick Cave Warren Ellis The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford Atticus Ross The Social Network Shigeru Umebayashi In the Mood for Love A Single Man and Massive Attack And the performances are universally impressive particularly from Dolores Heredia as the worried wife and Tenoch Huerta as the no nonsense cop Lupe but when so much of the story flashes and folds back in on itself it becomes difficult to pinpoint people among the wreck There s waves of Tony Scott s Man on Fire to be felt throughout although if this handled the emotional stakes even half as well as that film it d be more palatable if not even enjoyable Instead it s a grubby and ugly film brutal at times for sure but infinitely less impactful than you might hope considering the subject matter and visceral filmmaking style carlos bardem days of grace dolores heredia eiff eiff 2013 everardo valerio gout festivals movie reviews About the Author I m a freelance film reviewer and blogger with over 7 years of experience writing for various different websites In addition to my running editing and writing for Thoughts On Film I am also the freelance Film TV editor for Scotland based student magazine website Scotcampus I have a passion for all types of cinema and have a particular love for foreign language film especially South Korean

  • GFF 2014: The Zero Theorem | Thoughts On Film
    exactly a new idea Kathryn Bigelow s Strange Days explored it to great effect in the 90s for example but Gilliam moulds it to his inimitable style The whole thing hinges on Waltz and he is a fascinating and unique presence as ever His character is complex and often hard to work out but also a relatable everyman in his own sort of way and thus our anchor throughout feeling as much adrift in this overbearing and confusing world which the film presents as he does obsessed with completing his work David Thewlis puts in an entertaining and sometimes tragic performance as his supervisor Joby Tilda Swinton in an almost unrecognisable get up and Scottish accent as Qohen s virtual psychiatrist Dr Shrink Rom is genuinely hilarious and Damon as the Big Kahuna is a bizarre but nevertheless inspired piece of casting Other famous faces like Peter Stormare Ben Wishaw and Rupert Friend turn up but only very briefly and it adds to the feeling that there s a longer cut out there that was somehow restricted that makes more use of both the extended cast and the overall world which it showcases The central plot of Qohen pronounced Coen and not Quinn as Waltz keeps having to remind his supervisor trying to perpetually crunch numbers in order to adhere to the instructions that zero must equal 100 is gobbledygook And depending on your how much you buy into it all that s either a failure by the film on an intellectual level or part of the point that the meaning of the life is ultimately confusing and unknowable How much you enjoy Gilliam s latest bizarre outing will depend entirely on how much you re willing to give yourself over to its surreal ways of thinking It s a veritable treasure trove of filmic creativity both in its fundamental ideas and the visually arresting ways it presents them even if it doesn t entirely pull them off satisfactorily For die hard Gilliam fans its odd and wacky world will be something akin to cinematic heaven and it feels like the director is utterly at home in his comfort zone The Zero Theorem is released in UK cinemas on March 14th ben wishaw christoph waltz david thewlis featured festivals gff 2014 glasgow film festival lucas hedges matt damon melanie thierry movie reviews pat rushin peter stormare rupert friend terry gilliam the zero theorem tilda swinton About the Author I m a freelance film reviewer and blogger with over 7 years of experience writing for various different websites In addition to my running editing and writing for Thoughts On Film I am also the freelance Film TV editor for Scotland based student magazine website Scotcampus I have a passion for all types of cinema and have a particular love for foreign language film especially South Korean and Japanese cinema Favourite films include The Big Lebowski Pulp Fiction and 2001 A Space Odyssey Twitter Facebook Related Posts Tweet Leave A Response Click

  • GFF 2014: Tom at the Farm | Thoughts On Film
    it has to offer As Francis becomes more and more controlling and weirdly protective of Tom who is essentially his pet as well as an antidote to the boredom of running his family farm so too does sinister sexual undertones grow It never quite goes the full way with that aspect but that idea of threat and more specifically sexual threat is always bubbling away underneath the surface and around every corner It s undoubtedly a mischievous film and like I said you have to just go along with it but it s in this tricky playful nature that the film is ultimately an enjoyable thrill ride as much as it is a knuckle chewing exercise in tension as well as an effective exploration of captivity and power struggles Though somewhat overplayed in its stylistic approach to telling the story some unnecessary slow mo sometimes gets in the way for example Dolan s latest film is nevertheless a taut thriller with superb performances one that takes great pleasure in sticking the proverbial knife into its audience and slowly twisting it until the tension becomes almost unbearable Tom at the Farm is released in UK cinemas on April 4th evelyne brochu featured festivals gff 2014 glasgow film festival lise roy movie reviews pierre yves cardinal tom at the farm xavier dolan About the Author I m a freelance film reviewer and blogger with over 7 years of experience writing for various different websites In addition to my running editing and writing for Thoughts On Film I am also the freelance Film TV editor for Scotland based student magazine website Scotcampus I have a passion for all types of cinema and have a particular love for foreign language film especially South Korean and Japanese cinema Favourite films include The Big Lebowski Pulp

  • GFF 2014: The Great Passage | Thoughts On Film
    in his growing relationship with Kaguya with whom he is quietly besotted It skillfully keeps that deliberately paced love story bubbling away and developing underneath the surface of the main narrative while never sacrificing its understated but nevertheless powerful impact This through line works as well as it does because of the performances particularly from Matsuda who brings a grace and crucial subtlety to the table with a magnetic screen presence in his own small unobtrusive way Miyazaki is also excellent as Majime s wife while Go Kato provides some of the film s most heartbreaking and on some occasions funniest scenes as the ageing chief editor As it goes on the film morphs beautifully into this uplifting and inspiring exploration of what it means to work as part of a dedicated team over a long period of time to accomplish something Now of course not all of us are working for years on developing a brand new dictionary but it nevertheless conveys that sense of pride in accomplishment that s very hard to achieve in a film without tipping over into heavy handed triumphalism or sentimentality The Great Passage makes it look effortless While perhaps a little on the long side this is nonetheless a moving heartfelt and intensely meaningful film that tackles complex themes with admirable sincerity saying what it wants to say in a graceful way with a deliberate but never boring pace aoi miyazaki featured festivals gff 2014 glasgow film festival go kato movie reviews ryuhei matsuda the great passage About the Author I m a freelance film reviewer and blogger with over 7 years of experience writing for various different websites In addition to my running editing and writing for Thoughts On Film I am also the freelance Film TV editor for Scotland based student

  • GFF 2014: Run & Jump | Thoughts On Film
    not least in the likeable and believable performances by its cast Forte is particularly effective as the visiting doctor who starts out as a quiet observer but gets sucked in by the Irish charm of a family hurting and struggling in more ways than one continuing to prove his dramatic acting chops after recently impressing in Alexander s Payne s Nebraska Peake does very well with the difficult role of Vanetia a mother caught between trying to keep her family unit together and trying to come to terms with the way her husband is while longing for the way he once was And MacLiam brings subtlety to a potentially caricaturish portrayal and his skill in the present day scenes showing how the stroke has affected his behaviour is only highlighted with flashback scenes showing Conor the way he used to be Despite it never quite having a grip on all the different themes and subplot its presents Run Jump is nevertheless a beautiful emotional and engaging watch in its own little way one that sincerely sheds light on how illness can affect those around the victim as well as the victim themselves And it all builds to an ending that impressively manages to achieve some sort of catharsis for the believably flawed characters it presents Run Jump is released in UK cinemas on May 2nd edward macliam featured gff 2014 glasgow film festival maxine peake michael harding movie reviews run jump sharon horgan will forte About the Author I m a freelance film reviewer and blogger with over 7 years of experience writing for various different websites In addition to my running editing and writing for Thoughts On Film I am also the freelance Film TV editor for Scotland based student magazine website Scotcampus I have a passion for all

  • GFF 2014: Capturing Dad | Thoughts On Film
    any cuter little half brother Chihiro played by Kaito Kobayashi who absolutely steals the show with his adorably naïve actions looking for all the world like a Studio Ghibli character come to life Unfortunately much of the good location and camera work is largely diminished by the visual style The film is shot in what looks like 90s era digital video and whether this was a conscious stylistic decision or done purely out of budgetary necessity it unfortunately makes the film come off as cheap rather than achieving any sort of rough and ready realism That said the film has its heart firmly in the right place and thanks to impressive performances from the likes of Erisa Yanaga and Nanoka Matsubara as the two sisters conflicted between paying their respects and feeling angry at their abandoning father and Makiko Watanabe as their hard working mother help make the often clumsily handled sentiment believable This is a flawed charmer that explores themes such as familial loyalty parental responsibility and death viewed through innocent eyes even if it s not always in the most subtle of ways capturing dad erisa yanaga featured festivals gff 2014 glasgow film festival makiko watanabe movie reviews nanoka matsubara ryota nakano About the Author I m a freelance film reviewer and blogger with over 7 years of experience writing for various different websites In addition to my running editing and writing for Thoughts On Film I am also the freelance Film TV editor for Scotland based student magazine website Scotcampus I have a passion for all types of cinema and have a particular love for foreign language film especially South Korean and Japanese cinema Favourite films include The Big Lebowski Pulp Fiction and 2001 A Space Odyssey Twitter Facebook Related Posts Tweet Leave A Response Click here
