Boy A (2007)

“Jack…………..That’s the name I want.”

One of the best things about film is when it inspires debate and discussion, and perhaps a degree of introspection. Irish director John Crowley’s made-for-TV film (but also with a small scale theatrical release, including at the Toronto Film Festival) Boy A, is certainly in that mould. 424 more words

Review

Top of the Lake
