Ostatnia Rodzina / The Last Family (2016)

Director: Jan P. Matuszynski
Starring: Andrzej Seweryn, Dawid Ogrodnik, Aleksandra Konieczna. Poland. 2h 3m

I was quite desperate to see this movie as Zdzisław Beksinski is one of my all time favourite painters and his biography is quite bleak, so in the right hands this film should have been glorious and it’s absolutely captivating. 315 more words

Sad Story

CAUTION: Contains “spoilers.”

William Wiard’s “Tom Horn” (1980) couldn’t help but be elegiac. It was Steve McQueen’s next-to-last film, and his last western–the genre in which he won his initial fame, first on T.V. 489 more words
