‘The Insider’ (1999) – Based On A True Story

Director Michael Mann was a well-established filmmaker even before the release of ‘The Insider’ in 1999, whether it be through television series like Miami Vice and Crime Story or motion pictures like Thief, Manhunter, The Last of the Mohicans, and Heat. Based on the true story of a 60 Minutes segment about tobacco industry whistleblower […]

‘Face/Off’ (1997) – A Treat to Watch

As an action thriller, John Woo’s “Face/Off” (1997) is wholesome entertainment with an amazing thrill ride. Even though predictable most often, this 1997-released Face/Off starring Nicolas Cage (as Castor Troy) and John Travolta (as Sean Archer) is engaging and creative. Isn’t it interesting to watch two accomplished actors playing dual hero and dual villain characters? The […]

Drive Angry (2011) – Another Usual Nicholas Cage Flick

Directed by Patrick Lussier, Drive Angry is a stylish action movie similar to Ghost Rider that doesn’t spend much of your time before taking you on an action-packed trip filled with guns, gore, and unrelenting violence. Drive Angry talks about Milton (Nicholas Cage), a dead man who breaks out of Hell to prevent the Earth from […]

Buried (2011) – A Spanish Psychological Thriller

There are very few movies that grip you with their intriguing drama even though shot in a single set. ‘BURIED’ is just the right example that holds you up with all thrill and moments of anxiety when Paul Conroy (played by Ryan Reynolds) finds himself inside a coffin with few things by his side. Interred […]

The Art of Getting By (2011) – A Sweet Romcom Drama

“The Art of Getting By” is truly a nice and sweet flick with a different kind of treat – about a restless teen who is clueless about his life and sees everything as meaningless for some reason, on the front – bad parenting or richly neglected self. Well, here one can see quite a few […]

Death and the Maiden (1994) – An intriguing suspense drama

This Roman Polanski classic Death and the Maiden is indeed one of the films that brought many moral questions related to guilt, revenge, justice and punishment. The film surpass the cinematic boundaries with an authentic feel of play with only three characters on screen – and hence one of the finest opportunities for its actors to […]

Lockout (2012) – A Laughable Video-Game Kind Sci-Fi Flick

Directed by James Mather and Stephen St. Leger, Lockout is nothing more than a video game-esque sci-fi flick with no worth whatsoever. In this film, if there is one thing that I want to reveal straightway is the laughable yet entertaining performance by Guy Pierce, who unsuccessfully tried to save the film from slick dialogues […]

Arbitrage (2012) – Richard Gere At His Best

Yes, as the name suggests, the film Arbitrage is about hedge fund management and business, but first time director Nicholas Jarecki has readily laced it with intriguing family drama to bring it to the taste of average moviegoers. Somehow written on the backdrop of the recent financial crisis, the film Arbitrage illustrates the selfishness and acquisitiveness […]

Mesrine (2008) – Killer Instinct / Public Enemy No. 1

This French-language biographical crime drama portrays the real-life tale of gangster Jacques Mesrine. ‘Killer Instinct’ is the first part of a sturdy two-part series. Directed by Jean-François Richet, the first part of the film is based on the autobiographical book L’instinct de mort (Killer Instinct) by the gangster. The second part – Mesrine: Public Enemy Number […]

‘The Air I Breathe’ (2007) – About Life & Emotions

Korean American filmmaker Jieho Lee’s debut directorial venture The Air I Breathe, albeit is not a critics’ choice, certainly has the star-cast and an intriguing plot that keep the viewers engaged for most of the time. The storyline is based on the concept of four human emotions: happiness, pleasure, sorrow, and love that together make up […]
