Zodiac (2007)

There are very few films I can watch again and again. Se7en is one of them. Zodiac is another. I love these two films because they are very well written and produced, and marry my favourite film genre – thrillers –

The Silence (2010)

This excellent police procedural thriller from Germany assembles a group of fully fleshed-out and highly interesting characters, and drops them into a fine criminal drama. The Silence feels original mostly because, as a foreign piece of work, it avoids the clichés we

Jacob’s Ladder (1990)

Somehow, for me, Jacob’s Ladder has always gone hand-in-hand with Angel Heart (1987). Maybe director Adrian Lyne and writer Bruce Joel Rubin were heavily influenced by Alan Parker’s masterpiece? It would not surprise me at all. No matter, Jacob’s Ladder can stand tall all by itself

Is there any limit to the fun you can have watching a movie! Quentin Tarantino keeps banging out hit after hit which keep us rooted to our cinema seats and sofas. We are either grinning or grimacing, howling with laughter

After Dark, My Sweet (1990)

We have already reviewed my all-time favourite noir, The Grifters (1990), the film adaptation of Jim Thompson’s 1963 novel. Thompson’s 1955 novel, After Dark, My Sweet, has also been eponymously adapted to the screen; curiously, also in 1990. Again, this is a
