World War Z
The Bling Ring
Jack the Giant Slayer
21 And Over
A philosophical road move with a serious hard-on for all things Canada, the feature is a patchy but satisfying ride to self-actualization.
| Original Score: B
Subsumed in Canada's vast landscape, Ben finds ephemeral distraction and occasional edification, but not much in the way of great epiphanies.
| Original Score: 3/4
Despite its morbid plot underpinnings, One Week is less depressing than the average Canadian movie. Maybe it's because you can never feel more alive than when you see this country in all its glory.
| Original Score: 3/5
Another dispiriting example of a director using sickness and physical deterioration in rationalising dishonest and narcissistic behaviour.
Kinda aimless, pleasant and bland.
...a moving and tremendously involving piece of work.
