Tania: I would like to ask you about your background, you were a theatre director and then you went into film. How did that work?

Tania: So how did tha...

They new scene of misfits is less then a week away. I was a huge fan of the first scene, it used the comic book genre in a really cool way. So when i got the email from the BFI about them hosting the first episode i jumped at the chance to see it.
The first scene was as some of you might remember small buget tv show that has got a great idea. This gave the show a feeling of any one with a good idea can make something worth watching.
The new episode was a big let down, Tom Green th...

One of my favorite films this year that I couldn't wait to see since first learning about it at the 2010 Taormina Film Festival was The Circle (2009) by the young and up and coming director Nawaf Al-Janahi from Abu Dhabi.

The Circle left me in deep contemplation about life and indeed as soon as it ended, I found myself watching it immediately a second time. Here to speak w...
