    Elevator to the Gallows

    ★★★★½

    Florence Carala (Jeanne Moreau) and Julien Tavernier (Maurice Ronet) are having an affair and plot to murder Florence's husband Horst (Iván Petrovich) who also happens to be Julien's boss. Julien climbs into his bosses office and stages a suicide, he easily pulls this off due to his history as an ex-soldier and it almost seems like they could have gotten away with it. The only problem is that he left the rope dangling outside the office so he goes back…

    Like many people I sometimes name other films or filmakers in reviews in an attempt to explain any kind of similarities whatever movie I'm writing about might share with another film. Obviously it can often give the reader a little idea of certain elements to expect and if they've already seen the particular film it can be interesting to know if they also felt those certain connections. I have a big admiration for everyone here who is able to write…

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Inventive, heartfelt, frenetic, absurd, meaningful, hilarious, entertaining, greatly acted, superbly written and impressively edited - Respectively referencing an awesome range of different films Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert created their own unique multiverse to admirable but in my eyes imperfect results. I look forward to seeing how a re-watch goes but for now I absolutely recommend seeing this asap as I found it exceptionally moving and it was awesome to have watched it with a crowd who all seemed to be loving it. Everything Everywhere All at Once is just bursting with energy and imagination from the word go, what an awesome cinematic experience.

    Based on the legend of Scandinavian medieval figure Amleth (who was the inspiration for Hamlet) Robert Eggers latest film is an always engrossing and all-round exceptionally well-made historical epic. It features a great cast who are all perfectly fitting and impactful regardless of their screen times and the film also manages be entertaining, intense, incredible visually and for me is emotionally investing. It is interestingly a little more straightforward in it's storytelling when compared to what we've seen from Eggers…

    Martin Scorsese had suffered a near fatal cocaine overdose just before this was made and the biography of Jake LaMotta was shown to Scorsese by De Niro during a hospital visit and that's how we eventually got this masterpiece. Scorsese is said to have felt this could have been his last film and it's intensity and rawness can actually be hard to stomach at times but it feels so personal and you just can't look away. The beautiful black and…

    Lawrence of Arabia

    ★★★★★

    This film is Based on of the life of T. E. Lawrence who was most famous for leading armies of Arabian tribes in military campaigns going against the Ottoman Empire in World War I. The film was directed by renowned filmaker David Lean and Peter O'Toole starred as Lawrence in one of the greatest performances I've ever seen in a film and I'll go into more detail with that soon. So it was beautifully shot in 70mm with such care…
