Northwest – Nordvest Film Review (Denmark, 2013)

Michael Noer is a gritty realist, concerned with the unstoppable inertia of the city.

Rebellion (2011) Film Review

Expectations can be a tricky best, especially when it comes to films. The trailer for Mathieu Kassovitz’s newest film, Rebellion, really makes it seem like a wartime story.
