Tales of the Unexpected
July 1st, 2007

Stories weren’t about issues in those days, they were about setting up a scenario you’d never seen before (paying attention, Hollywood?) and keeping you mercilessly hooked by your need to know What Happens Next.

The Notorious Bettie Page
September 1st, 2007

But here’s the most interesting thing about the movie; there’s hardly a word of swearing (in fact, Bettie scolds a colleague for the language in a bawdy song), no blood, no violence, hardly even a raised voice, yet the film’s rated MA. Have we really come so far in 50 years?


Oblique September 11 references
April 30th, 2008

Buddha’s Lost Children
April 1st, 2008

An ex boxer-turned Buddhist monk collects horses and orphaned, malnourished children in his far north Thailand monastery, wielding his own special kind of boisterous, unsentimental love to boys who’ve never known it.


Criminal Heroes
May 17th, 2008

What else but the movies could make the bad guys the heroes? They’re mostly at home in comedies or films with comic elements, because while we know there are guys out there who can crack safes, launch computer viruses or deal drugs, they’d never act against the innocent …would they?

Movies about Africa — a Top Ten List
September 22nd, 2008

It’s been called everything from the savage continent to the New World. Spread over 30 million square kilometres, it has virtually every landscape and climate, life form and geopolitical society known to humankind. Is there any wonder our fascination with Africa never runs out?
