Riot Club, The (2014)
★★ / ★★★★

Two first-year students at Oxford University, Miles (Max Irons) and Alistair (Sam Claflin), different in personality and temperament but both from a privileged background, are invited to join a highly exclusive group called The Riot Club, known throughout the years for recruiting only the boldest, best, and brightest yet with a proclivity toward decadence. 481 more words

THROWBACK REVIEW - An Education: On the presentation of female teens in film and coming of age on the brink of the Children’s Revolution

Set in the early 1960’s, when the Beatles were still in Hamburg and Free Love was only a few years away from rattling the world, Lone Scherfig gracefully brings Lynn Barber’s memoir of her tumultuous teenage years to life in this bitter-sweet coming of age British drama. 764 more words

The Riot Club

There’s a good 20 minute stretch, halfway through Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club, in which the film becomes an actual compelling look into the psyche of the bourgeoisie and its eternal battle against the proletariat. 100 more words

Film Review

Protocol aka The Boring Stuff

For the past two episodes, director, Lone Scherfig, has used real life footage from the 1960s.  Sometimes the characters are even inserted into the old footage, reminding me of “Forest Gump.”  It’s well done and makes the show more interesting. 142 more words
