Ben Hur (12A) | Close-Up Film Review

Various film versions have been made of Lew Wallace’s novel “Ben Hur”, with the best known being the 1925 silent movie and 1959 one with Charlton Heston in the title role.

It’s another wonderful day at the supermarket, and the products on the shelves are singing away – maybe today will be the wonderful moment when they’re finally chosen to be taken through the automatic doors to the “promised land.”

From the Melbourne Film Festival: The Family

With the Manson Family still regularly in the news and often fictionalized on our screens (August 9 was the 47th anniversary of the shocking murders), it’s inevitable that people will be drawn to this new documentary about another cult utilizing the same moniker.

Bone Tomahawk (18) | Home Ents Review

The chances are that you cannot name a single director of tv dramas from what are often called the golden years of British tv.

Stuff and Dough (12) | Home Ents Review

Stuff and Dough is a masterclass in fresh film-making, resonating with several genres to great effect (disaffected youth, grimy realism, thriller) to create something unique yet wonderfully familiar; while keeping up a sprightly, light tone throughout. Now, you definitely can’t say the latter about Puiu’s follow-up films.

Scott of the Antarctic (PG) |Home Ents Review

Studio Canal’s Vintage Classic series brings us yet another treat with this lovingly restored edition of “Scott of the Antarctic”. Jack Cardiff’s cinematography hardly needs my endorsement but the painstaking restoration work by the team at Pinewood Studios really shows. The image is pin-sharp with none of that slight fringing we’re accustomed to seeing in unrestored early Technicolor films

Journey to the Shore (12) | Home Ents Review

Edvard Munch (PG) | Home Ents Review

This austere, informative portrait of the Expressionist painter of the iconic ‘The Scream’ really puts the viewer through the wringer – in a good way, that the artist himself might have commended.
