Review: Arabian Nights – The Restless One

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt Arabian Nights – The Restless One is the type of film in which you can easily imagine certain cliques chomping at the bit to discuss and lavish praise upon. However, if the film doesn’t hit the same sweet spot, you can easily see the same...

Review: Victoria

Review by Jack Deslandes Filmed entirely in one take, Victoria is a roller coaster ride of nail-biting tension and heart-stopping suspense that, if you make it through, will leave you bitter, cold, and gasping for breath. The story takes place between the hours of 4 and 6 am as it...

DVD Review: Heartless

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt Scandinavian fiction has gained a significant amount of attention over the last few years. With good reason too. Whether it's film or television, there’s been an abundance of mature, adult drama. Be it critiques on masculinity such as the 2014 feature Force Majeure, or the...

Blu-Ray Review: Bride of Re-Animator

Written by Leslie Byron Pitt It’s still hard to imagine that there were financiers who were willing to take a chance on a horror film like Re-Animator. This is meant favourably, as the 1985 Stuart Gordon film is the type of deranged cult classic that would manipulate young minds into...

Blu-ray Review: Black Mama White Mama

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt/@Afrofilmviewer Very much a cult curiosity, Black Mama White Mama condenses a truck load of plotting into what is effectively an exploitation chase flick. The results vary. While it’s fun to see a film which heavily influenced Quentin Tarantino, the film is so interested in stuffing...

Review: Martyrs (2016)

By Leslie Byron Pitt/@afrofilmviewer The French original 2008 version of Martyrs is reminiscent of the delightful internet meme: Honey Badger don’t care. It is a relentless beast of a horror film. Fully assured of its nihilism and unrepentant on who knows it.  A force of nature that wasn’t for everyone,...

L-r, Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie star in Columbia Pictures' "The Night Before."

Review – The Night Before

By Leslie Byron Pitt/@Afrofilmviewer Seth Rogan’s Christmas comedy the night before runs on a very defined “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” rule. This adult x-mas yarn has Rogan playing side kick (along with Anthony Mackie) to Joseph Gorden-Levitt’s Ethan, whose quest to find and enjoy New York’s dopest...
