    Movie Review: 'In Bright Axiom' Absolute Discretion in Documentary?

    Movie Review: 'In Bright Axiom' Absolute Discretion in Documentary?

    In Bright Axiom is one of the more odd documentaries I’ve ever encountered. Not necessarily in presentation as it is relatively conventional in documentary presentation. No, it’s odd because at times you can’t really tell what is real and what is part of the fantasy world of the subject of the documentary, the bizarre living game cum cult experience, The House of Latitude. What is The House of Latitude? Let’s explore…

    A Filmmaker's Guide: Tom McCarthy's 'Spotlight' (2015)

    A Filmmaker's Guide: Tom McCarthy's 'Spotlight' (2015)

    Spotlight (2015) may have won Best Picture at the Oscars and it may have been praised by critics as one of the best films of the 2010s, but it is also one of my personal favourite films ever. One thing about Spotlight (2015) that I love is its creation of a sense of urgency without the need to play too much around with music and atmosphere. Instead, the film uses cinematography and placement to depict this feeling and, even though it is unconventional, it still works.

    A Filmmaker's Guide: David Fincher's 'The Social Network' (2010)

    A Filmmaker's Guide: David Fincher's 'The Social Network' (2010)

    It is very well known that when it comes to symbolic cinematography, not many people do it better and more satirically than director of Seven and Fight Club, David Fincher. Fincher directed the Oscar-winning film The Social Network with the legendary Aaron Sorkin writing and scripting the film. This was followed by Oscar nominee Jesse Eisenberg's crazy SNL episode, which is completely irrelevant to this article but watch it anyway, it's hilarious.

    A Filmmaker's Guide: Guy Ritchie's 'Sherlock Holmes' (2009)

    A Filmmaker's Guide: Guy Ritchie's 'Sherlock Holmes' (2009)

    Guy Ritchie’s blockbuster Sherlock Holmes is probably most famous for being one of the most well-known and well received adaptations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s amazing novels. But another thing it is most famous for is its effective action sequences. The way in which the cinematography draws the audience into the scene, makes the audience a part of the scene, and makes sure the audience understands the reality of the characters and the story proves to be effective for this movie to say the least. When we ask questions about this, the first question we have to ask is: how effective is it and what makes it so?

    Cinema as Art and Entertainment

    Recently, acclaimed director Martin Scorsese unleashed a torrent of controversy with his scathing criticisms of superhero films. He compared comic book movies—which have rose to a position of great visibility in the New Hollywood since about the turn of the millennium—to a “theme park” or an “amusement park.”

    The Staying Power of Casablanca

    The Staying Power of Casablanca

    My dad and I are both classic movie fans, it's one of the few things we bond over. We have a ritual of meticulously combing TCM’s weekly schedule and recording anything that sounds interesting. It started last summer; I was too depressed to go outside, and instead sat for hours, near-vegetative in front of the TV as Ben Mankiewicz talked about movies I’d only heard referenced in passing. I like a little bit of everything; my dad, as of late, watches anything related to WWII—typical middle-aged white dad fare—and that’s really where it starts.
