Land of Mine

Under the Sand

(Edit) 11/03/2021

A harowing, yet gripping and complex untold story; not an easy watch, but well worth anyone’s time. The production, acting and cinematography is superb. ‘Life’s not tidy’.

The Lesson

Great Film

(Edit) 17/04/2018

As per the reviews on the DVD cover, the words ‘powerful’, ‘gripping’ and ‘brilliant’ sum it up in three words. If you only watch one Bulgarian film about a teacher this year, make it this one.

Toni Erdmann

Crazy

(Edit) 12/02/2018

I had planned to write a long review of this film, but having read

Adrijan Arsovski’s review (Cinema Paradiso-Critic Review tab),

I would urge everyone to read that, as it explains the film perfectly.

I will add briefly though, that a review of the film, which said

that it is ‘Totally Nuts’, also hits the nail on the head.

Rams

Best Icelandic Sheep Based Film I've Seen

(Edit) 19/08/2017

Had I knew what the film was about before sitting down to watch it, I would have gone down the pub, however I'm glad I did watch it. Superb story, acting and cinematography. Humorous (subtle and not "laugh out loud"), but also dark and poignant. Please take a punt and watch it, unless your favourite film is "Dude, where's my car?".

David Brent: Life on the Road

Weak, weak, weak.

(Edit) 25/02/2017

In my opinion, The Office was a hilarious, groundbreaking and unique comedy; twelve episodes of perfection. I so wished that he'd left it at that but then came a Xmas special to spoil it, and sixteen years later, this. In ' David Brent: Life on the Road', Ricky Gervais has made 'The Office-the movie' and I so wished he hadn't, as it's cliched, predictable and weak. I did laugh out once or twice, but mostly winced at how awful it was. I can only guess that Gervais had a tax bill to pay; he is a comedy genius and there was no need for this.

Whiplash

6 Stars

(Edit) 30/05/2016

One of the best films that I've seen in a long time. Didn't read much about it before watching, it but just heard it had good reviews so gave it a go; suggest everyone else does so too. Didn't like jazz before watching it, but I have listened to it (mainly the film soundtrack) since watching this film; don't have to like jazz though to enjoy it though. 6 stars.
