Over the last few years I've come to be of the mind that a project Vincent Cassel stars in is always worth a peek. They're not all great but Cassel is always great in them and there's great entertainment and insight to be had from watching an actor of Cassel's prowess fully embody a role – which he seems to do regardless of how large or small.

Christian Alvart's production company Syrreal Entertainment has struck a deal with German-based Global Screen to co-develop features.

I found season one of Guillermo del Toro's The Strain, well, strained. A strong opening led to a slow-moving series of set up episodes that I found tedious at times. Maybe it's because I'd already read the first book, but it wasn't until about episode 8 that things started picking up again. [Continue reading]

I must admit that I was a bit weirded out by Claudia Llosa's Milk of Sorrow a few years ago (all I'll say is vagina potato) but that coming of age/sexual awakening story, as strange as it was, has stuck with me in a way that most movies don't.
