Den of Thieves, review: Thieving Merrimen and a cop called Nick

Den%20of%20Thieves%2C%20Still.jpg
Den of Thieves, review: Thieving Merrimen and a cop called Nick There is little Gerard Butler does here that he has not done before, more than once. The bulgy steely eyes, the scowl, the contorted mouth speech (is there something Scottish about it?), the man on the brink... As producer, he could have either picked a better script, or, as actor, moulded himself better. He decides to remain he. Den of Thieves is as much about thievery as the Afghanistan war is about a flying carpet. Our brand ...

MIFF 2018, XII: Meet the Baby of the International Jury, Baby Ruth Villarama Hailing from the Tagalog (main dialect) speaking heartland of the Philippines, a country of several thousand islands, Baby Ruth is easy to get along with.

James%20Baldwin%2C%20Time%20magazine%20cover.jpg
MIFF 2018, XI: 400 years of the Negro That is what it took for the black people in America to get civil rights. And almost prophetically, the then Attorney-General and brother of the President, Robert Kennedy predicted that America would have a black President in 40 years. But not before thousands had been brutalised, beaten and even killed, including leaders like Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr., none of whom lived to be 40.   Oscar nominated documentary on the...

Under the Smokey Roof, review: Choked souls and misguided goals

Under%20The%20Smokey%20Roof%2C%20Poster.jpg
Under the Smokey Roof, review: Choked souls and misguided goals A classic Iranian family drama with a four players who let life dictate to them, rather than take the bull by the horns, provides an excellent backdrop for the intersections and conflagrations to launch a rivetting back and forth exercise of a swinging emotional see-saw. Not this time. Shows how easily a tale full of promise can turn into a pointless enactment of the plot that moves from point A to point B. Even that would not ha...
