Under the Skin

Creative and different but slightly unfocussed

(Edit) 06/01/2015

I love film noir and love a creative escape which challenges the mind and imagination.

On the whole, I enjoyed the journey of the film. However, I was disappointed with where it lead. I don't mind a 'blank canvas' ending in the least, but to me, the film didn't really lead anywhere, or provide any clues to the story. I liked the mood and the aesthetics very much, but the content and conclusion could have filled me up a little more.

Calvary

Brendon Gleeson at his best

(Edit) 07/10/2014

I thoroughly enjoyed this actor's performance in a film which showed him as a straight yet contemplative and wise man, slightly over the middle continuum of middle age with an impressive dry wit.

I took out the film because of its dryness, dark humour and hint of bizarreness and I wasn't disappointed.

It has a hint of a foreign film to it and this is reflected in its artistic cinematography, location setting and insight into an Irish culture.

I haven't watched The Guard and it doesn't look my kind of film, but perhaps viewers of Brendon Gleeson in Bruge would find this film more up their street.

Hotel Splendide

An enjoyable film

(Edit) 11/02/2013

A deliciously dark and dry-witted film which takes you completely and enjoyably out of your everyday normality. Aesthetically appealing and the characters are diverse with high quality acting. The way in which it gets across that familiarity (however strange), can take over people's careers and lives, is also quite reflective.
