'Fast Times at Ridgemont High' - Movie Review

Fast Times at Ridgemont High is not a movie. It’s a character study.

The film counts five main characters, all high schoolers, and the plot (if you could call it that) unfolds over the course of one school year. 466 more words

The Beaver Trilogy is an unusual beast. Directed by Trent Harris it is, as the title may suggest, a trilogy of short films. Filmed over the course of six years, each film centres on Olivia Newton-John impersonator and seeker of fame, Groovin’ Gary who Harris met whilst trying out his brand new colour news camera back in the 70s. 323 more words
