LFF 2012: I, Anna

This review was originally published at http://www.frontrowreviews.co.uk on 15th October, where I gave it 3.5/5 as part of our LFF Coverage.  I, Anna in all ways is a family affair; the film stars Charlotte Rampling, who in her 60’s still looks stunning and can still give thrilling performances off slightly unhinged women. The film is adapted … Continue reading

Not one to shy away from putting all star casts into slightly quirky, and … Continue reading

This review was originally published on http://www.frontrowreviews.co.uk on 8th September 2012, where I gave it 3/5 stars. Tulpa was one of the more interesting premieres to take place at FrightFest this year, and this is possibly one of the reasons it has taken so long to get around to this review.
