2007 directed by Dom Rotheroe



Nice little independent British horror/thriller..

A seemingly normal family collapse under financial pressure..
Another of the "found footage" genre, but very well done, tightly scripted and very well acted..

Good effort 4/5

Strangler of the Swamp
1946




Atmospheric poverty row chiller from PRC studio stariing Charles Middleton who I remember as Ming the Merciless from the Flash Gordon serials..
No, I'm not that old..but they were re shown on tv in the mid 70's.

I've always wanted to see this and watched it last night for free on you tube.
Although obviously made on a budget of 4 dollars, its very atmospheric and quite well done.. I reckon most of the budget went on the fog machine..

Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool



Romantic drama based on the memoir by Peter Taylor telling the story of aging film star Gloria Grahame, diagnosed with cancer and her romance with a young British actor.. Mainly set set in Liverpool in the late 70's..

I'm quite a fan of Ms Grahame's (IN A Lonely Place) and thought Annette Bening, who I'm also a fan of.. was excellent in this, as was the whole cast..

Added to that I thought they got the period detail just right and I really liked the way they effortlessly moved back and forward in time, not something thats often acomplished so well..

Very good .

^ Agreed. That cutting around in time could have been very confusing, but wasn't (thanks partly, if I recall right) by the use of intertitles giving the date and place.

I'd almost like to see it a second time, though, to more clearly understand what was going on in some of the early flashbacks.

I liked the way characters walked through doors and appeared the other side in a diff time and place.. It just seemed to flow and work well. I'd def watch it again at some point.
I also enjoyed the performances and dynamics of the family in Liverpool dealing with having a Hollywood star living with them. Lots of humour and pathos... Some really good performances..
