The film stars Robert Pattinson in a breakout role as Connie Nikas, an on-the-lam criminal in New York City trying to bail his mentally disabled brother Nick out of jail following a failed bank heist. As […]

SPOTLIGHT: ELISABETH MOSS

  “Acting is not stupid, but it’s a very strange profession, honestly,” confessed Elisabeth Moss more than three years ago, when the last season of Mad Men was about to air. “My job is to get up, and get dressed in someone else’s clothes, and go and pretend that I’m someone else. Who does that?” […]

FILM REVIEW: MOTHER!

  One need only to look at film reviews for “Mother!” to realise that the film has been polarizing to say the least. On the one hand it’s been lauded: ”no gob left unsmacked in Jennifer Lawrence’s anxiety dream of horror and dismay.” (Peter Bradshaw, Guardian) and on the other hand it’s been called “the […]

It is considered as one of the best UK independent films and is basically compulsory viewing if you consider yourself British. In fact, the film was so successful that three television sequels were made, each […]

Movie Review: Visages Villages

  Like a delicious camembert with honey, the film Visages Villages (Faces Places) was definitely cheesy but pleasantly sweet at the same time. We follow the unlikely duo of director Agnès Varda and artist JR, as they travel throughout France, capturing the faces of those they encounter. The project all began in 2015, when Agnès […]

CRITIQUE DU FILM: VISAGES VILLAGES

  Tel un délicieux camembert qui se déguste avec du miel, le film Visage Village était sans aucun doute un peu “cheesy” (comme le disent les anglais) mais aussi plaisant à regarder. Dans ce film, nous suivons le couple improbable de réalisatrice Agnès Varda et artiste Jr sillonnant la France et filmant leurs rencontres. Le […]

SPOTLIGHT: HENRI LANGLOIS

  We couldn’t imagine cinema without the name of Henri Langlois, but somehow not many people know him. He really is a big deal and he might just be the reason why we are able to see À Bout de souffle on Netflix today. It all started when Henri Langlois (1914 – 1977) began a […]

CRITIQUE DU FILM: INGRID GOES WEST

  Juste comme la série TV Black Mirror de Charlie Brooker, Ingrid Goes West (Matt Spicer, 2017) est un portrait sardonique de l’obsession actuelle par des réseaux sociaux. Son protagoniste, Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) est une fanatique de Instagram qui se nourrit d’illusions d’amitié avec des femmes glamour qu’elle suit. Pleine de ressentiment quand elle […]

MOVIE REVIEW: INGRID GOES WEST

  Similar to the dystopian television series Black Mirror (Charlie Brooker), Ingrid Goes West (Matt Spicer, 2017) is a sardonic take on millennials’ obsession with social media. Its protagonist Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) is an Instagram fanatic who feeds on illusions of closeness with the online glamor queens she follows. Feeling spurned when she is […]
