I often am asked “What good films should I watch?”
This series of posts will aim to answer that question, of-course in addition to my film reviews.
Prisoners (2013) – A dark tale about a kidnapped child and the parent and detective’s search to find her. A fantastic, Fincher-esque thriller with an all star cast, Prisoners is one of my favourite movies.
Locke (2013) – A minimalist drama starring (visually) just Tom Hardy driving a car. The journey consists of many phone calls, giving a deep insight into his character and life- which falls apart over the 85 minute run-time. A moving film, this was one of my favourites of ’13.
Whiplash (2014) – J.K. Simmons won an Oscar for playing a brutal music teacher who will do anything to make sure the music is perfect. His violent character is in stark contrast to the beautiful jazz and the end of the movie is hugely memorable. A must-watch for fans of classical music.
