  • Nymphomaniac: Volume I

    Flawed and occasionally ridiculous, this is nevertheless a wonderful film

  • Nymphomaniac: Volume II

    So good I want to see the full five and a half hour version

  • The Ballroom

    Make yourself a capirinha and prepare to dance. A hot sweaty gossipy night in Brazil. A killer soundtrack. Too much to enjoy here. Samba baby!

  • Nymphomaniac: Volume I

    Compelling, shocking, disturbing and hilarious! I was worried that Von Trier was going to sell out in the final scene. I needn't have worried. I howled with laughter! My favourite: the dialogue between the two gentlemen pictured above filmed at (ahem) waist level. See it!

  • A Magnificent Haunting

    Nicely played and warm. I like this one a whole bunch. A little bit Pedro Almovdovar but not as over-the-top. My favourite line: 'Pietro, you need to get laid. Man or Woman I don't care!' 'Jesus Maria I've enough trouble being gay without trying to be straight as well!
