Pre-2018 Film Reviews
ABBA: The Movie
- Excerpt: ABBA: The Movie is really just an excuse to glory in ABBA: The Group. However, they’ve earned to right to be celebrated.
- Excerpt: Alibi Ike is a delightful little baseball comedy.
Bavner Donaldo @ Cinejour (2018) [Indonesian]
- Excerpt: Caligula is not erotic but gaudy, vulgar, trashy, awful, pointless. Like many if not all pornographic films Caligula has a lot of sex but no plot to speak of.
- Excerpt: …Kwan’s bold approach is something like analyzing a film in real time, his intertwining of feature scenes, interviews with actors and filmmakers from both his own film and those of Ling-yu’s plus clips from what remains of her work enriching the experience.
- Excerpt: Although it starts out trying to be CASABLANCA, it turns into a film six feet wide and a quarter of an inch deep, and seems as episodic as an “Indiana Jones” film.
- Excerpt: Cry ‘Havoc’ is a bit of a downer, even for a war film.
- Excerpt: Gaslight is a well-acted albeit long film about the manipulation and ultimate revenge of the manipulated.
