My review of James Brown biopic Get On Up has got on up and landed on the Verite Film Magazine blog like a sex machine. You can find it here http://www.veritefilmmag.com/blog/it-gets-its-grove-on-but-get-on-up-falls-down-as-a-biopic
My review of Mike Leigh’s simply magnificent new film Mr Turner – featuring a potentially career defining performance from the wondrous Tim Spall – has gone up on the Verite Film Magazine site http://www.veritefilmmag.com/blog/art-of-darkness-leighs-mr-turner-is-a-majestic-portrait-of-a-contradictory-genius
My review of one of the coolest films to screen at The London Film Festival this year has gone up over at Verite. Farsi language vampire spaghetti western may be the first entry in a new film genre Persian Gothic.
Okay, I know I’ve overused the word ‘strange’ in this review of Carol Morley’s The Falling, sorry, I blame festival PTSD. Anyway, it’s a really interesting and mysterious film http://www.veritefilmmag.com/blog/lff-14-the-falling-is-a-beguiling-but-elusive-act-of-magic
Another of my reviews from the upcoming London Film Festival has gone up on the Véritè Film Mag blog. Spanish relationship drama 10.000 km, which is distinguished by a terrific performance from Natalia Tena.
The first of my LFF reviews has gone up on the Verite film magazine blog. The disappointing Guantanamo Bay drama Camp X-Ray. Kristen Stewart is good in it though.
