By today’s desensitised standards, this horror classic – often cited as the Scariest Movie of All Time – is kinda dated, kinda slow and not that terribly scary. But its most notorious scenes and moments still have a power to disturb.
In this era of overlong and overstuffed movies, it’s nice to see a very simple story told well in under two hours, like this tender, sensitive and gentle modern fairytale from the French filmmaker Céline Sciamma.
I really enjoyed this peculiar, freewheeling Norwegian dark comedy-drama about a young woman battling indecisiveness as she approaches 30s, despite some problems with the writing that made it feel a tad shallow.
I kicked off the Easter long weekend with this lively and funky show by the husband-wife duo from Mali. I love our homegrown talent but it’s great to finally see an international act after nearly two years!
Another Australian cinema classic I always meant to watch for the last twenty years, Lantana is a moody and incisive examination of trust and fractured relationships, finely interweaving complex character drama with a police investigation.
