Half of a Yellow Sun

Film Four Stars
This year at the Glasgow Film Festival the number of lower ranking choices on my watch list that I ended up having to see due to scheduling conflicts was much more than normal, but that isn't such a big surprise. What is a surprise is how many of these films...

Another surprise of the Glasgow Film Festival for me was the film Concussion. When I first went to see the film I wasn't sure what to expect, what I didn't expect was a cleverly written film that is more an allegory for the mid-life crisis and a look at long...

A Touch of Sin (Tian zhu ding)

Film Two Stars
This was another film that I saw at the Glasgow Film Festival because of chance. It was down my list of films to see but it happened to fill a gap between some other high priority films - it's always the case that the schedule has to be shuffled around...

Film Two Stars
My interest was piqued when I heard that Salvo was a stylish film following a mob hitman. The main plot overview is something we've all no doubt seen before, the hit gets a little complicated, a woman is involved, and the previously stone cold loner hitman acts against his contract...
