Here’s my take on the ten most interesting looking films which reach UK cinemas this month… After the disappointment of Jupiter Ascending and the highs of The Duke of Burgundy it’s time to take a look at March is offering up for us. Now there’s a lot out there this month including Oscar wining dramas, animation, […]


Ethan Hawke is yet another interesting name to be added to the upcoming reboot… There’s a real question as to whether there really needs to be a Magnificent Seven remade at all, but that’s for another time. Whether we like it or not it’s happening and it’s assembling a rather curious cast. Of course the classic film […]


Leonardo Dicaprio takes on the mammoth acting task that he has been trying to get hold of for two decades… This has been a long time coming for DiCaprio. The actor has had his eye on the lead role in the Billy Milligan biopic for around twenty years and he is finally going ahead with it. […]

Who's That Poster

Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffanys! There were actually a real mixture of guesses for this one including several people who went for Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct, and I can see why! Congratulations though to this month’s eight winners: Committed to Celluloid Erotixx Filmtruths Blog Mediocre Batman Ramblings of a Cinephile Tranquil Dreams Where […]

Wegner’s transformation began when his wife the artist Gerda Wegener asked him […]

Taking place in Hackney at the Hackney Picturehouse on the 16th of March, this one off event looks set to be a really interesting evening out. For […]

Fatma Mohamed Profile

Today I’m excited to say we have Fatma Mohamed in to talk about The Duke of Burgundy which I gave a glowing review recently (here). She plays The Carpenter in the film who provides her clients with the rather unusual apparatus that they desire. It’s a fun role and it was good to have a quick chat with […]

Aftermath takes on far more than it can chew in its seven minute running time… There is nothing wrong with this short’s approach to its subject matter. Aftermath details how two siblings deal with the death of their parents through the use of restrained storytelling and by focusing on the emotions contained within movement and […]

Duke of Burgundy

A searingly intimate and exceptionally well crafted study of love, sex and relationships… The Duke of Burgundy is a rare cinematic gem which asks a lot of its audience but in turn rewards them with a deftly observed and layered screenplay, pinpoint-precise acting and richly sensual visuals. One takes great pleasure in delving deeply into […]
