An intoxicating, bold, imaginative, imperfect stream of consciousness that I highly recommend checking out.
 
It definitely won't be for everyone, but my Film of the Week is Terence Nance's AN OVERSIMPLIFICATION OF HER BEAUTY. An intoxicating, bold, imaginative, imperfect stream of consciousness that I highly recommend checking out. I reviewed for CineVue.

THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES is like an album front-loaded with all its best tracks; there are gems dotted throughout, but it's generally downhill from the stellar opener.

I only covered one of this week's (very few) new releases, but THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG is a worthy Film of the Week. A rollicking return to Middle Earth.

In cinemas from today is German 'documentary tale' THIS AIN'T CALIFORNIA exploring East Berlin's underground skating scene. I wrote about it for CineVue.

One of my New Year's Resolutions - as a cinephile - was to catch up with 101 films I feel I should have seen. From classics to more recent fare. You can keep up with my progress over on my blog.
101 films to catch up with before NYE.

Not that you all had high hopes anyway, but here's my review for CineVue of the thoroughly disappointing KICK-ASS 2. It's now out on DVD and stuff.

One of my favourite horror films of the year hits cinemas tomorrow. Torture porn meets political allegory in the chilling Israeli picture BIG BAD WOLVES. Reviewed for CineVue.
