Bob Shaw's Lairs for "The Wolf of Wall Street"

The history of money is strewn with hoaxes and the anti-heroes who rise and fall by them. Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street sends up an especially bracing example based on the bestselling memoir of Jordan Belfort, played with Oscar-nominated flair by Leonardo DiCaprio. To convey the debauched life and times of this high-rolling shyster who conned unsuspecting investors into forking over $100 million plus in the late '80s and '90s, the filmtakes us deep into the lairs ...

Review of the film, Non-Stop

Catch me if you can! One more aeroplane thriller? Indeed! Non-Stop offers a few new twists but fails to explain apparently illogical and far-fetched premises. Some rapid-fire technical jargon, and the villain’s motivation, would even qualify as ‘flights of fancy’. An alcoholic Federal Air Marshal (whose duty is to escort US flights, to prevent terrorist attacks and hijacking attempts) Bill Marks (Liam Neeson) has to identify and pre-empt an on-board bad-man, who threatens t...

Review of the film Dallas Buyers Club

user
Dallas Buyers Club A bargain, at any price! It’s not often that film scripts take 21 years to reach screens. It’s not often, in these multi-million dollar budget times that a Hollywood film is made in just $5-8million, shot in 25 days. It’s not often that you sit through a docu-feature/biopoc 117 minutes long and feel every minute was worth it. It’s not often that you get to see a film as rivetting as Dallas Buyers Club. Back in 1992, an aspiring film-maker named Craig...

Review of the film Pompeii

user
Pompeii Love and Lava As you watch Pompeii, the elements of its screenplay start breaking down: rebellion, sadistic massacre, gladiators and arenas, quest for revenge, love between high and low, white-black man bonding, a villain who will stop at nothing to get the heroine, divine intervention to cleanse the earth of a (debauch) whole city, lovers who are eventually ready to die for each other. Comparison with Titanic is only natural. Director Paul William Scott Anderson (Shopping, Mortal Kom...

Review of the film Monuments Men

user
Monuments Men WWII mission to rescue...objects of art! A result of monumental research and dedication by author Robert Edsel and based on the book written by him, with Bret Witter, Monuments Men comes across as half a thriller but a welcome deviation from the oft-repeated subject of rescue missions across enemy lines, set in the World War II period. Co-writer and director George Clooney eschews the temptation to go all guns blazing in this dramatisation of a true story, and restricts bullets a...

Alfonso Cuaròn Explores "Gravity"

On a recent wintry night, the 13th snow storm of the season froze the Film Society of Lincoln Center's plans to host Alfonso Cuarón in a conversation about his new film Gravity. The acclaimed Mexican director, whose lift-off to New York was aborted, was instead astral-projected by video Skype. Cuarón is perhaps best known to American audiences for his screen adaptation of the children's book A Little Princess; his Mexican road comedy Y Tu Mamá También; ...

Review of the film, Winter's Tale

user
Winter’s Tale Set in a mythic New York City, and spanning 118 years, Winter’s Tale is about miracles, sublime love, and the age-old battle between good and evil. To justify the title, there is tons of snow and extreme cold in the story and the locations, including a barefoot walk on ice by its heroine. Peter Lake (Colin Farrell) is a state-of-the-art thief, whose own heart is stolen by a 20 year-old rich girl, Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay), daughter of millionaire Isaac Penn...

Review of the film, Vampire Academy

user
Review of the film, Vampire Academy Quite literally, the film is set in an academy for vampires, though the theme, obviously, is not restricted to academics. There is a lot of blood, some gore, plenty of blood-drinking and very human like intrigue within the Moroi (peaceful, mortal vampires) and the Strigoi (immortal, evil vampires). The last thing you expect in a horror film is talk-talk-talk, yet there is plenty of it here. Sadly, even after so much verbosity, little is conveyed effectively. ...

Review of the film, 'her'

user
her ‘her’, a futuristic story about ‘him’ (Joaquin Phoenix) and five hers (Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde and Portia Doubleday), is an engaging film that compels you to reflect, and challenges you to label it. At first, it appears to be a tongue-in-cheek take on futuristic technology (writer-director Spike Jonze had a real-life terrible experience with a smartphone app). Then, it draws you into the lonely world of the curiously named Theodore Tw...

The talented young actress, photographing as a young Julia Roberts, has had a series of images, and visions, which led her to believe, and believe very strongly, that after numerous...
