Louder Than Bombs (Competition) - Review

Louder than bombs, dir. Joachim Trier, US/ Norway 2015 - Cannes 2015 Competition    By Martin I. Petrov   How easy it is to forget the past if you’re reminded of it on every single step you make to design the future? Joachim Trier’s third film Louder than bombs, loud in emotions and precise in its storytelling, explores the consequences of forgiveness, betrayal, love and death.  Teaming up again with Eskil Vogt (Oslo, August 31, Blind) on the script, Trier ...

Top Movies Thus Far

  by, Cameron Lui   Ive seen 7 movies at the festival and counting, so here's my thoughts on the best ones so far.    1. The Lobster-hands down the best film in the festival thus far. It has a clear agenda that is executed with aggression and creativity. The acting was flawless, the writing beautiful, and it packs one of the biggest punches in cinema to date.    2. The Irrational Man-beautifully depressing film that has the honesty that only Woody Allen...

Sea of Trees-review

by, Cameron Lui   Critics have not been very fond of the premier booed “The Sea of Trees,” directed by the talented Gus Van Sant.    Mathew McConaughey and Naomi Watts did not deserve the criticism they received during the premier. While many critics have called this one of the worst recent films by McConaughey, I thought he turned out yet another consistently passionate performance.    What made the movie so insightful was how right they got the dark...

True Love is Blind-Lobster review

  by, Cameron Lui   I have never in my life seen an ending that made multiple audience members sprint for the exits.

However, the violence had so many blatant metaphors for modern day love that the extremity of them were almost a...
