"The Mercy" Mini-Review

The Mercy (2018)

There is method in his madness. This is the way some were able to characterise Donald Crowhurst’s insane desire and, ultimately, attempt to finish a single-handed, non-stop round-the world trip – the Golden Glove (Yacht) Race sponsored by Sunday Times in 1968. 678 more words

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
