Rating History

The Childhood of a Leader
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Immediately compelling, Brady Corbet's fictional narrative about the formative years of a despot is effectively told with the tonality of a horror film. Essentially, this is the filmic love-child of "The Omen" and "Barry Lyndon". It's beautifully shot and chillingly scored.

Såsom i en Spegel (Through A Glass Darkly)
40 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Visceral and multilayered in a transparent yet beautifully realised manner.

Embers (2015)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

....and the award for pulling off the most trite AND glib SF film in perhaps EVER goes to "Embers". I want my two hours back, you bastards.

Faults (2015)
4 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Filled with unexpected moments, anchored by a psychologically compelling screenplay and lead by wonderful performances from Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Leland Orser. The ending disappoints with a fairly glib twist which undermines the emotional and psychological weight of what precedes, but it's still a mesmerising film.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
6 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

David Fincher's film of the first of the Millennium Trilogy books is an extremely well paced and narratively satisfying psychological thriller. There are significant differences from the Norwegian film but Fincher essentially tells the same story - albeit with a very different visual style and characterisations from Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig. Mara is wonderful as the socially withdrawn, attachment-disordered researcher / hacker Lisbeth Salander, and it is sad that neither Fincher nor she appear to be involved with a continuation of the series.
