First Lines: G. K. Chesterton - The Innocence of Father Brown

Between the silver ribbon of morning and the green glittering ribbon of the sea, the boat touched Harwich and let loose a swarm of folk like flies, among whom the man we must follow was by no means conspicuous - nor wished to be.

Melanie Engel

ph: Richard Phibbs

Jupiter Ascending (2015)

A young woman discovers her destiny as an heiress of intergalactic nobility and must fight to protect the inhabitants of Earth from an ancient and destructive industry.

Visually overabundant sci-fi fantasy that is a complete and thorougly risible mess in all other departments.

Alicia Ruelas

ph: Ted Emmons

Ne te retourne pas (2009)

Panic attacks and memory loss signal the plight of a writer whose body is inexplicably being taken over by another woman.

Intense, but a bit overplayed psychodrama with a quite confusing plot. 

Simone van Werkhoven

New Stuff: Jupiter Ascending

I simply wanted to finally see it.

Anna Voskresenska

The Paradine Case (1947)

A happily married London barrister falls in love with the accused poisoner he is defending.
Superb courtroom drama with an excellent cast; Hitchcock manages to set the characters' moral ambiguities as the plot's pacemaker.

On renewed view: it's bit pedestrian in pace.

Halliwell**: "A stodgy and old-fashioned script is given gleaming treatment; this and the acting make it seem better thirty years later than it did on release."

Maltin**1/2: "Talk, talk, talk in complicated, stagey courtroomdrama...Below par for Hollywood..."
