THE MEND is maddening yet mesmerising

Rating: ★★★

Walk into John Magary’s The Mend sober and you’ll come out with a hangover. A deeply inebriated, experimental film with a low hum narrative motor, it stumbles around in drunk and disorderly circles, occasionally punching the air in moments of angry clarity, before groggily flopping back down into depraved delirium. 684 more words

johnlink ranks POSEIDON (2006)

POSEIDON is one of those formulaic action films you are bound to see eventually. It is made for commercial interruptions and mindless consumption (though my snobbishness has prevented me from watching ANYTHING with commercial interruptions). 527 more words
