Silence Scorsese

Silence – Review

The sound of Silence is astonishing. Insects, waves, weather, chanting, groaning and, yes, prolonged silence - these elements combine into a sensory experience at once rich and austere. The clash of languages...
The Accountant

The Accountant – Review

It doesn't take a genius to know that The Accountant is not high-art cinema; instead director Gavin O'Connor has made a masterpiece of the modern action genre. Unmissable, enjoyable excellence from start to...

Inferno – Review

Dan Brown is something of a miracle writer. His books, worldwide bestsellers one and all, are simultaneously light, page-turning romps and heavy art-history swamps. True to form, David Koepp has kept both of...

Swallows And Amazons – Review

Nerve – Review

Nerve is, in effect, Truth or Dare: The Movie without a shred of truth. It's hard to buy the concept that young people would risk life, limb and financial ruin for one night of fame... OK, maybe not, but Nerve...

The Carer – Review

Sir Michael Gifford is not a pleasant man. An aging actor quick to quote Shakespeare and shaken by his failing health, he is nonetheless a cantankerous, foul-mouthed, pompous ass – Brian Cox is perfect as...
