  1. My 2016 film highlights

    My annual film highlights post, in which I highlight 20 films from all I saw during the previous year. Not all are without their flaws, but I'm very fond of all of them, flaws and all.

  2. Review of Josh Trank’s Chronicle

    Various Hollywood lizards have spent a great deal of time trying to bring an unwanted, live-action, Americanised adaptation of Akira into production, with reactions drifting between hilarity and gnashing of teeth as project status updates flickered between 'cancelled' and 'project back on, Keanu Reeves to play Kaneda'. Though Josh Trank's first film Chronicle is not a literal adaptation of Akira, it's so similar in tone and story that it's safe to consider the Hollywood adaptation (last known status: cancelled) safely trumped.
