A couple of uplifting films

The Road

Perhaps the most depressing film I have ever seen. Moving, sad, and personal, it invaded my mind for days after viewing. The tragic father-son relationship played by Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smit-McPhee (who would later reprise a similar vulnerable innocence in the excellent Slow West) is wonderfully realised. 255 more words

Brief Reviews: Lawless (2012)

A prohibition-era crime drama written and directed by the team behind excellent Aussie western The Proposition is a mouth-watering prospect. However, Lawless, while being a solid and frequently enjoyable film, often feels a little unbalanced. 277 more words

Brief Reviews

The Proposition

The Proposition (2005) – 8/10

Intense and confronting Aussie flick filmed in outback Queensland. Written by Nick Cave who also supplied the haunting soundtrack (could lose the whispering though).   125 more words
