Sightseers (2012)

Cinema just put a big stupid grin on my face. Ben Wheatley’s “Sightseers” has done the impossible: it’s made the phrase “British comedy film” seem, for once, like it’s not a contradiction in terms. For once, here is a genuinely funny film which is completely home grown… and I absolutely loved it. Continue reading

The Raven (2012)

James McTeigue’s third feature film, “The Raven” (2012), sets out to explain the last days in the life of the American writer, Edgar Allan Poe. The author of such dark and macabre works as “The Masque of the Red Death”, “The Black Cat”, “The Pit and the Pendulum”, “The Tell-tale heart” and “The Raven” among many others, Poe’s untimely death was as mysterious and as tragic as the tales he wrote.
