  • Silence

    I can tell you two things for free and then i'm outta here: (1) History continues to gnaw at our nervous system and (2) Silence is essential viewing (and listening) for anybody that's experienced the nagging suspicion that our values are in the blender at the moment and we just can't articulate the confusion of it all.

  • Frank

    An excellent film about music and the relationship between insanity and greatness.

  • Frank

    Having just re-watched 'Frank' for the 3rd time, it is, as of right now, my favorite film of 2014. I highly recommend it!

  • Two Days, One Night

    Incredibly moving film! Marion Cotillard is wonderful.

  • Frank

    For anyone in Ireland (or Europe with the spare cash for a short plane ride) the sound team from ‘Frank’ are giving a workshop specific to the film at The Fingal Film Festival. I have been volunteering with this group for 6 months so of course I’m biased, but for any filmmaker with an interest in this movie I have no doubt its going to be a great experience. http://fingalfilmfest.com/schedule-2014/workshop-saturday-27th-september/

  • It’s Nun Time

    While watching Ida, the beautiful polish film about an orphaned woman waiting to take her vows who decides to uncover the truth about her troubled family, I started thinking about top cinematic nuns, the real genre defining nuns (the nun genre, sub genre of religious films that is) Hollywood nuns fall into roughly four categories, four sub genres of the nun genre. There are beautiful gentle little birds, singing and dancing rebels, sick sadistic villains and men. I have trawled through these genres and picked some of the top nuns in each category to create the superstar list of mega star nuns.
