Birds Without Wings

Birds Without Wings by

ISBN: 0099478986 I’m not really sure where to start with this review, because this book covers so much. It is set in a small village in Anatolia, in the finally few years of the Ottoman Empire, just before the forced separation...

The Queen

The Queen dir. by

This is an odd sort of film. Parts of it are very good, but other parts, well I just don’t think they work. The film is mostly set in the few days surrounding the death of Diana, as the British public...

Right at Your Door dir. by

I’m not quite sure what I was expecting from this film, but I didn’t get it. The plot should have been able to create tension and drama easily enough. After all you can’t really get more tension filled than a terrorist...

you came to take us, all things go, all things go

The problem with finding out about great sounding/looking stuff is that you want immediate gratification. Neil Gaiman raves about a film, a fairy tale film, dark and scary and you want to go see it. Only you can’t. Cause Pan’s Labyrinth...
