The film reviews that I wrote in 2015-8, mainly for marx21 magazine and Website, are now online and properly referenced
I’m normally taken to enjoying films about army officers, but this documentary about Germany’s first trans Oberleutnant is compelling https://cinephil.home.blog/films-by-date-seen/2019-2/november-2019/ich-bin-anastasia/
Wasn’t expecting much of this Keira Knightley film but was very pleasantly surprized. Very much more than an average court case/historical drama https://cinephil.home.blog/films-by-date-seen/2019-2/november-2019/official-secrets/
Saw Jan-Ole Gerster’s follow-up to Oh Boy this evening. We need more films about unlikeable misanthropes, just not necessarily this one. https://cinephil.home.blog/films-by-date-seen/2019-2/november-2019/lara/
This afternoon I went to the documentary based on the creation of PJ Harvey’s most recent album, and it was much better than it had any right to be. Review at https://cinephil.home.blog/films-by-date-seen/2019-2/november-2019/a-dog-called-money/
We are slowly getting there. The page containing the articles that I have written on film is now online at https://cinephil.home.blog/articles-on-film/.
New review just in. The critics almost universally loved Olivia Wilde`s début film. I didn’t. Read out why at https://cinephil.home.blog/films-by-date-seen/2019-2/november-2019/booksmart/
Welcome to the CinePhil Berliner Film Blog
Its just gone midnight on 15th November 2019, and we’re just about to go live. Welcome to the CinePhil Berliner Film Blog. You can read more at https://cinephil.home.blog/blog/about-this-blog/, but the main point is the reviews. Enjoy. or wildly disagree. I hope that at least there’s something here to discuss further.
This Blog is a great friend of the Moviemento cinema in Kreuzkölln, Berlin
Moviemento is the oldest cinema in Germany, and an independently-run cinema, and home to many film festivals and special cinema events of all kinds. Moviemento’s existence is critically threatened as the rooms housing the cinema are up for sale on the real estate market. We want to withdraw the cinema from the market, to purchase the space, and to secure the long-term survival of this unique space. Please show us your support with a donation. You can help us save Moviemento! More information here.
