Visitors

★★★☆☆ Dir: Godfrey Reggio (2014) Godfrey Reggio‘s take on the destructive wonder of man in his “Qatsi Trillogy” are now projected deep into the abyss of space as he asks us to forget where we are, who we are and watch a film much like a visitor from another planet would. Visitors begins with long shot of a … Continue reading

Under The Skin

★★★★★ Dir: Jonathan Glazer (2014)  From the opening moment of this, Jonathan Glazer‘s third film, we are thrown head first into nothingness.

It’s also deftly and swiftly told. It somehow acts … Continue reading

Oculus

★★★★☆ Dir: Mike Flanagan (2014) After the dirty, low-budget and fairly great Absentia, Mike Flanagan expands on his short film Oculus to create a great little horror film which does contain many familiar elements but succeeds brilliantly due to a fascinating dual time frame structure and some fast, clever scripting. The idea is a pilfering of classic 60s, … Continue reading
