Review: The BFG

Review By Leslie Byron Pitt Steven Spielberg's first Disney branded film (it's weird that it's taken so long), is a rather wistful adaptation of the beloved Roald Dahl book The BFG. The novel, which is over 30 years old, tells a light-hearted tale of an orphaned little girls relationship with...

DVD Review: River

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt The movie River involves a young American doctor (Rossif Sutherland) who doesn't know when to stop, intervening a sexual assault while on sabbatical in Lao. His violent intrusion leads to the assailant's body being found in the Mekong river the next day. This leaves the...

DVD Review: The Trust

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt The often main theme that is heard at the beginning and end of The Trust, is a welcoming and funky track but it does little to perk up the bland existence of this laborious heist film. The Trust opens with one of its main characters;...

DVD Review: Highlander (30th Anniversary Edition)

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt Highlander is another one of those films that a generation of people swear don’t get made anymore, despite the fact the distribution of such quirky films has been altered and that brand awareness and fandom have helped smooth out the rougher edges of more fantastical,...

It communicates its simple tale with an understated eloquence, never feeling sentimental or forced. The film location and religious culture may feel miles away, but it's sensibilities are universal. From...

DVD Review: Anomalisa

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt This film broke me. Perhaps it was the all too real nods to customer services. The seminars, the platitudes and the like. It might have been the brilliant chemistry between the cast. The voices of David Thewlis and Jenifer Jason Leigh provide a spark so...

DVD/Blu-Ray Review: Queen of Earth

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt “Why are these people, friends?” Is the type of question you could find yourself asking when observing Alex Ross Perry’s quietly startling Queen of Earth. And rightly so. The film froths with a near overbearing deep-seated resentment which could make the psycho-biddies of the sixties...

DVD Review: Son of Saul

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt/@Afrofilmviewer Son of Saul is the type of movie that has to be seen when the viewer in the right state of mind. Least they find themselves equally as trapped within the films tight compositions, as the titular Saul. A Jewish–Hungarian prisoner held within the confines...

Lena (Emma Watson), Daniel (Daniel Brühl) in “Colonia”

Review: The Colony

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt/@Afrofilmviewer The Q&A which occurred after the Vue Piccadilly screening of The Colony was one embossed with passion. Director Florian Gallenberger’s near stream-of-consciousness speeches flowed around the auditorium with not only a sense of humility but also a sense of anxiety. At times his voice cracked....
