    The Wicker Man


    "On paper, Sergeant Howie should be easy to root for: his intentions are noble, protecting a child from a predatory world that seems ambivalent to their life or death. In execution, however, he is a tedious man, belittling others behind his WASPish faith and authoritative uniform with a gratingly imperious tone of voice. In turn, the people of the island are impish and fun-loving; during the many scenes of song and dance around Summerisle's vibrant locations, it's easy to imagine…

    Sympathy for the Devil


    "With monologue after monologue, Cage turns in one of his loopiest performances in years, hitting some very strange beats involving an imaginary childhood monster called Mr. Mucus, and an extended, hip-thrusting sing-along to Alicia Bridges' "I Love The Night". Sporting a shock of crimson-red hair (which easily puts itself forward as one of the man’s most barmy barnets), dressed in a gloriously tacky blazer and rocking a pistol inscribed with a Chinese proverb, this feels like Cage's Joker performance –…

    DNF, thought that doing Saw Patrol might be a good idea after a few pints and, thanks to a bus strike that put me in orbit of a well-timed screening, I could get to see this for free with my Odeon Limitless pass. Little did I know how truly not for adults this was, with what seemed like a promising US voice cast being swapped out for the most Tory-sounding children's voice cast of all time. Whoever the British replacement…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Lionsgate's The Irishman! 81 year old Tobin Bell is back baby back as 52 year old John Kramer, looking every day of his cancer-ridden age as returning Saw 3D champ Kevin Greutert staunchly hits back at de-ageing technology in favour of committing to the bit. There's something refreshing about wearing the franchise's low-budget heart on its sleeve here, embracing the idea that, yes, people get old and, yes, we're still pedalling them out to milk some more out of this…

    Me: Do you like Mary Harron’s adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ American Psycho?

    Snooty Film Analyst: It’s OK.

    Me: The later scenes are a little too abstract for my tastes, but when Bateman’s monologuing carries on throughout all 102 minutes, I think it really comes into its own, commercially and artistically. The whole film has a clear, crisp look, and an old sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives Andrzej Sekula’s cinematography a big boost. Mary Harron's been compared to…
