Director Guy Maddin has started to tease his Berlin Film Festival Forum strand opener, THE FORBIDDEN ROOM.
KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE ★★★★★
Shreds the espionage action rule book.
(James Bond's SPECTRE and MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 better watch out.)
Witnessing Colin Firth kick ass is unadulterated joy.
*Must get myself a double-breasted suit*
Intelligent and stylish sci-fi cinema is too rare.
From the director of the overrated DREAMS OF A LIFE, this new feature looks to be an improvement.
BETTER CALL CAUL will be screening at the Berlin Film Festival.
Sean Penn has gone Liam Neeson. Hopefully this will have more substance than Mr Neeson's action portfolio.
Could it be this year's GET SMART?
THE TRIBE ★★★★★
The best film of 2014.
No dialogue. No narration. No subtitles. Set in a Ukrainian boarding school for the deaf, THE TRIBE is as brutal and explicit as it is original.

A Walk Among the Tombstones
After ELYSIUM, CHAPPIE looks to be a return to form from the director of the excellent DISTRICT 9.

The vital ambitions of art and entertainment:
- The unexpected
Brains and soul are key; but adrenaline junkies do not fret, there is also much love for an experience that delivers a sucker-punch to the guts via stunningly delivered thrills.
The evaluation of a film
Verb, "to filmaluate”:
To evaluate a film
I am well aware how difficult it is to make a film, put on a stage play, create a television show, write a novel, let alone make something of note. (That appreciation doesn’t stop me from having high standards though.)
