Two of my absolute favourite films of last year’s NZ International Film Festival — and, in fact, the entire year — are now available on Blu-ray/DVD: Jim Jarmusch’s uber cool Only Lovers Left Alive and Paolo Sorrentino’s stunning The Great Beauty. A Fistful of Culture is combining blu-ray copies of both into three awesome prize packs courtesy of Madman, and …

It’s early days yet for film-of-the-year talk, but 2014 already has a significant frontrunner in Wes Anderson’s absolutely wonderful The Grand Budapest Hotel, which is heading to NZ cinemas this week. Following 2012’s festival favourite Moonrise Kingdom, Anderson once again tries his hand at a period piece, reimagining 1930s Europe through the zany adventures of Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a …

After the uncharacteristically murky and disappointing clip for ‘Where Are We Now?‘, Bowie is back in fine form here, teaming up with legendary director Floria Sigismondi and actress/doppelgänger Tilda Swinton. …

[REVIEW] MOONRISE KINGDOM @ NZIFF 2012

Following last month’s 2012 New Zealand International Film Festival programme announcement, the film I was most anticipating was Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, which opened the 65th Cannes Film Festival this year. The festival launched in Auckland last week, and I caught Moonrise last Friday night (followed by The Cabin in the Woods, which made for an unlikely but highly enjoyable …

[WATCH] Wes Anderson’s MOONRISE KINGDOM Trailer #1

The first trailer was released today for Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, and to no one’s surprise it looks absolutely marvellous. Anderson, the talented auteur responsible for such gems as The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, has once again gathered a remarkable cast, including regular collaborators Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman, alongside Edward …
