REVIEW: "THE PARTY" (2018) Roadside Attractions

This opening scene and the closing scene of Director Sally Potter’s new black & white shot film “The Party” are exactly the same. What lies between those two shots is a thankfull scant 71 minutes of a rather abysmal ‘dark comedy’ that didn’t really bring me any laughs, though in all fairness – I did hear a scant few on the other side of the screening. 527 more words

Darkest Hour

Many actors have played Winston Churchill. He was, after all, an instantly recognisable figure in life and an iconic and historically significant figure in death, with every child learning how the British Prime Minister led and inspired Britain during the country’s own darkest hours during the Second World War. 1,513 more words


Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour is set out as Gary Oldman’s greatest performance. The way it has been advertised and critiqued suggests that the film contains genuinely nothing else. 329 more words
