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

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

Cold Fish (2010)

I like to watch films without knowing anything about the plot beforehand. This means I get to fully enjoy every twist from start to finish; I’m like a nun walking onto a porno set. I am able to do this

Only God Forgives (2013)

I have watched Only God Forgives twice now. Like Drive (2011) – director Nicolas Winding Refn, actor Ryan Gosling, and musician Cliff Martinez’s last collaboration – I required two viewings to establish whether this latest film is all bells and whistles purporting to be art or

The Grifters (1990)

An unacknowleged classic, The Grifters is a neo-noir of the highest order. For my tastes, it is the best noir I have seen, with Double Indemnity (1944) a close second. The film is based on the novel, The Grifters, by legendary pulp crime
