Sunsetsong4-xlarge Lady Sings the Blues

Sunset Song isn’t as “in your face” despairing as something like the HBO series “Game of Thrones.” For comparison, it features 100% subplots solely dedicated characters being mercilessly tortured through genital mutilation. That said, it belongs to the same ilk of soul-crushing dramas. I’m not masochistic enough to risk a second viewing of director Terence Davies’ adaptation of the 1932 novel by Lewis Grassic...

X-Men: Apocalypse is getting savaged by critics, fairly and unfairly, for...


The-nice-guys-trailer3 Funny Noir Die

What else could explain why Trier would direct film that is a conglomeration of almost everything that I hate most...

A bunch of stereotypical quasi-characters brood and pout, if you like such things...
