Ladies and Gentlemen, and those reading over your shoulder, it has been a while, but that is due to mine host forgetting he had a website to maintain. Well, now he has finally woken up and general ramblingness can be resumed, so without further ado…… Read More
In Flying Blind, the feature film debut by Polish director Katarzyna Klimkiewicz, Helen McCrory plays Frankie, a woman who has built her life around her career as a designer of military UAVs. That life threatens to come crashing down around her when she falls for a young French-Algerian engineering student whose secrets may extend to more than just his immigration status.
The movie is currently touring the UK for a series of screenings and Q&As, playing tonight (Saturday 27th) at the Filmhouse in Edinburgh and tomorrow at the Glasgow Film Theatre. I had the chance to chat with Katarzyna about the film itself, its distribution, and her plans for the future. Read More
Golly, we’re getting pretty close to the finish line here folks. For the newer arrivals among you, this site was running before this 365 days of reviews nonsense started and it will continue to run afterwards, but there are going to be some changes.

Hark! The herald angels sing. Glory to the Thursday film.
And so we come to Part 3 of the Harry Potter films. Bored yet? I hope not because we aren’t even half way yet. I suspect that either this one or the next is my favourite HP film, although I have only seen the next one once so I will need to re-watch that before I decide. But this is a mighty fine film!
Remember that subplot in High Fidelity where John Cusack went around catching up with his exes to find out what went wrong? Yeah? So does Chris Waitt.
Everything you’ve heard is true.
Andy returns! And for some reason, he decided to open with a joke…
Juan and Pepe have been stranded in the desert for days without food or water and are desperate, when in the distance, they see a tree on fire, with bacon lining the branches. Juan sets off for it drooling but when he gets near to it, he has to run away as guns are fired and the bullets narrowly miss him. Pepe shouts to him and says Read More
