Best of 2013


Yeah big whoop, most people loved Gravity, it’s on top of most peoples lists. We know why it was awesome, above all though it was awesome because it actually met expectations. Time will tell if the simplistic narrative will hold up on the small screen or whether it is something to truly be experienced on the big screen.

Place Beyond the Pines

I’m a sucker for a crime saga. Pines covers a lot of ground and in essence tells three different stories. Some didn’t dig the narrative structure, favouring the the opening third of the film. But the sprawling timeline and characters leads to an amazing emotional punch. Combined with awesome camera work, haunting music and great performances by all concerned it’s one of the strongest crime films in years.

Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet

A simply made documentary but with an amazing story behind it. In his youth Jason Becker was a guitar virtuoso. Home video footage shows him playing jaw dropping solos whilst writing at a frenetic pace. Diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease at 19, Jason’s body slowly fell victim to the illness whilst his mind stayed fully intact. Now totally paralysed the film shows Jason’s amazing family and his continuing passion for creating and listening to music. A genuinely inspirational story and it’s not often I bother using that word.

Looking ahead to 2014

X-Men: Day of Future Past

Fuck me; there’s Sentinels.

Lego The Movie

Yeah, I’m surprised about this one. When the trailer appeared and I was shocked by the fact that it looks like it could be the funniest film of the year and the fact it’s directed by Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller only sweetens the deal.

Beyond Outrage

Takeshi Kitanos’ first Outrage was his first crime film in many years. His years of making meta-comedies about the creative process lay way to a fuck-ton of guns but still it was something of a disappointment to me. So I’m keeping quietley optimistic that Beyond Outrage will be something closer to Violent Cop and Brother in style.


If only for the fact that I’m intrigued to see how the story will work on screen.

Jodorowsky’s Dune

Alejandro Jodorowsky’s failed attempt to shoot Frank Herbert’s Dune is the stuff of legend and heresy. For years details about what could have been have dripped through but hopefully this documentary will give us the knowledge straight from the man’s brain. Whatever it is, it will be trippy.
