Review: Triple Frontier

The post-Argo world hasn’t been too kind to Ben Affleck.  Ever since he stepped up onto that stage and clutched his Best Director Oscar, he’s become somewhat of a villain in the eyes of the Hollywood elite. I’m not saying that’s a problem, as far as I’m aware his only good work comes from the aforementioned Argo and Good […]

Review: Private Life

Review: Private Life

Netflix are often incapable of creating solid dramatic roles for those in their talent pool. However, Paul Giamatti has saved several movies before, and he seems to have done the same for Private Life: a drama that could have been riddled with issues is saved entirely by strong performances and solid direction.   Possibly the biggest strength of Private […]

Review: Isn’t It Romantic

Review: Isn’t It Romantic

Because who wouldn’t want a deconstruction of the romantic comedy genre starring Rebel Wilson? Yes, it seems Netflix has returned to their old, soul-crushing ways of producing and financing mediocre content and then dropping it onto their platform, announcing it a day before it’s released. But that’s a system that works for them. It happened […]

Review: Shirkers

Review: Shirkers

If there’s one medium of film Netflix can get right, it’s documentaries.  Icarus has become a modern classic, as politically relevant as it was upon its release just two years ago. Get Me Roger Stone has followed a similar process also, so it does seem like Netflix have what it takes to make a great documentary feature. Shirkers looks to […]

Review: The Other Side of the Wind

Although having passed away in 1985, Orson Welles is still releasing movies in a manner more frequent than Quentin Tarantino. If that’s not a testament to the impact of Welles’ work and how much of an auteur icon he has become, we don’t know what is. Quite genuinely his final piece of work ever, The […]
