Friday THE-GREAT-GATSBY-Poster-535x802

The Great Gatsby (2013) 

It is hard trying to adapt such a beloved American classic as ‘The Great Gatsby’ by F. Scott Fitzgerald. There will undoubtedly be many fierce criticisms pointing out how a delicate narrative of Fitzgerald cannot be possibly transformed into a film, and how Baz Luhrmann, the director, made it all too contemporary and overly-glamorous.

“Shame” Review

Shame (2011)

Directed by Steve McQueen (‘Hunger’ (2008)) and starring Michael Fassbender, ‘Shame’ is a bold, beautifully-shot film about a high-paid office worker in New York, Brandon Sullivan (Michael Fassbender), who suffers from sex addiction. While Brandon is able to shuffle work and (his idea of) play reasonably successfully on a daily basis, his routine starts to spin out of control, and his life priorities are tested, when his younger sister, Sissy (Carey Mulligan), decides to pay him a visit and stay for a few days in his apartment.

“Drive” Review

Drive (2011)

Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and starring Ryan Gosling, ‘Drive’ may give the impression of being yet another crime thriller filled with pointless action scenes and meaningless dialogue sequences. However, this first impression is false. Compared to other action movies, ‘Drive’ is like gold itself found on top of some pile of garbage. With an amazing soundtrack, cast, performances, script and, above all, that nostalgic and unforgettable 1980s feel to it, ‘Drive’ is an impressive film, giving off brilliance of some kind of a cult movie, which maybe only be comparable to ‘Taxi Driver’ (1976).
