Film: Lawless

Coarse, unrefined and packing a punch; moonshine is certainly the apt metonymic beverage for Lawless. Nick Cave’s third stab at screenwriting, and his third collaboration with director John Hillcoat, is brash, bawdy joyride through Prohibition-era Virginia, that offers zero intellectual nutritional value but several caskfuls of mindlessly intoxicating goodness.

Like a modern day Lord of the Flies, in the unmitigated absence of adults, a group of awkward teenagers take rank during one summer night, all yearning for that one last-ditched attempt at hedonism before the school term starts.

26th BFI London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival: Beauty

Beauty is the uncomfortable story of obsession and repression with a wider narrative dealing with the way the older conservative generation fail to gel with post-apartheid contemporary South Africa

Film: The Kid With A Bike

‘A precocious, fair-haired young boy seeks a form of redemption after the loss of a father figure, in a European-helmed film’ . . . sounds a lot like the blurb for nauseating Stephen Frears schmaltz-fest Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

Film: Michael

Michael is a film by Markus Schleinzer that goes on Fritzl levels of sordidness. Literally.

From here on in it’s pretty much a fruit fiesta. Apples, elderberry, sloe, blackberries, fruit is everywhere. And fruit is the central ingredient in jam.
