Kidnapped review

Posted : 5 years, 9 months ago on 7 February 2012 07:01 (A review of Kidnapped)

Kidnapped left me feeling ill, rattled, and deeply disturbed, but this does not make it a bad movie. On a technical level the film is flawless, being done in only 12 extended takes and great use of split spring, the tension is built to nearly unbearable levels. But I can't stress this enough, this is not for the faint of heart, this movie will gut you with a knife. However, you'll never forget it, even if you may want to.

Shame review

Posted : 5 years, 9 months ago on 7 February 2012 06:05 (A review of Shame)

Uncompromising, unflinching, yet beautifully made, plunge into sexual addiction. Featuring a masterful performance by Michael Fassbender (who was robbed) as well as Carey Mulligan. Was it deserving of an NC17, no, I've seen a lot worse, but that isn't to say it holds back. The genius of it is that the sex is neither glamorized or titillating, it actually makes sex depressing. A fitting companion film would be Requiem For Dream, both expertly done films on addiction. This also stands as further proof that Steve McQueen is one of the finest filmmakers working today. (contains strong sexuality including graphic nudity and dialogue, violence,and language.)
