When I saw this blogathon over at the most marvellous Karamel Kinema, I knew I had to partake in it immediately. This excellent blogathon was created by Nostra of MyFilmviews (in association with MovieInsiders and Karamel Kinema) and focuses on the five senses of the human body – sight, sound, taste, smell, and touch. The […]

Here’s another of my Blindspot films – films which I have identified as a blind spot in my watch list, films that I probably should have seen already but have finally committed to actually watching in 2015. I recently watched Roman Polanski’s Chinatown (1974), a neo-noir mystery film starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway. Its […]

Yet again I’ve gotten stuck into a television series and I feel the need to post/rant about how much I love it. I’m sure you’ve all heard of NBC’s Hannibal before – the general story is based on the book Red Dragon by Thomas Harris, with the character of Hannibal himself being featured in the classic […]

Another amazing blogathon takes place this March: Reading Ireland Month, or, the Begorrathon – a celebration of all things Ireland in literature and cinema. I’ve been loving all the posts so far, which have ranged from excellent book and film reviews to irresistably shoddy accents. For my contribution to the Begorrathon, I wanted to watch […]

A surprising low budget gem, Sound Of My Voice (2011, dir. Zal Batmanglij) tells the story of young couple Peter (Christopher Denham) and Lorna (Nicole Vicius), who are shooting a documentary on cults and those who follow them. Peter and Lorna learn of a specific group of people who follow a woman named Maggie (Brit […]

I love Russian films. For me, the experience of watching films from Russia is quite singular – whether they’re classic or modern, from the Soviet era or recent times. It feels like the films have arisen out of a very specific cultural context that sets them apart from others, a context which I find extremely […]

This March there are a number of amazing blogathons running, one of which is the Graphic Horror Blogathon over at Flights, Tights, & Movie Nights. This blogathon focuses on horror films adapted from graphic novels, and there are a lot of great films slated for reviews, so it’s well worth checking them out! I chose […]

I can’t believe it’s the end of February already! It seems like only yesterday I was making weak resolutions that I haven’t even started to achieve yet (…still haven’t seen Interstellar). Film-wise this month, I seem to be just watching whatever I get my hands on rather than actively seeking things out. So it’s been […]

Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Werner Herzog immortalises the paleolithic Chauvet Cave paintings in Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2010), a documentary that showcases and explores the oldest cave paintings ever discovered, located in Southern France. The paintings in the cave have been dated back to as early as 32,000 BCE, making them very extraordinary indeed. They contain […]
