So, it's been almost two years since I started this humble little movie blog and it occurred to me, after a couple of glasses of wine, that I've never written anything deeply personal. That's absurd because film is such a personal medium. Everything I watch takes me to a specific place, along with the music that accompanies. It's also only fitting that I should finally write about the genius that is Clint Mansell because I recently witnessed his music played live at Film Music Prague - it was indeed a night to remember. So here it goes. Cue: a deep breath and another glass of red.
Renowned contemporary film composer Clint Mansell will have a concert presented by Film Music Prague next April.
Mother! is an ambitious passion project that sucks you in with its nightmarish intensity and deafening allegories. A fascinating, but truly disturbing watch. Fans of Aronofsky will love this, and everyone else? I'm not sure.
Director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream) returns to the psychological horror genre with Mother!.
Natalie Portman makes a triumphant return in Jackie; a beautifully crafted unconventional biopic that harks back to a day when politicians still had a certain poise and level of intelligence.
