Wonderlus

Wonderlus: Afrikaner Graffiti

Toe ek as 20-jarige die eerste keer Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist gekyk het, was ek verbaas om te sien hoe ‘n aand ㅡ soortgelyk aan talle wat ek al beleef het ㅡ in ‘n Hollywood-fliek uitgebeeld word. Toe ek nou, amper tien jaar later, Wonderlus kyk, het ‘n soorgelyke gevoel oor my gespoel (al is die twee flieks skaars vergelykbaar). Hier’s ‘n fliek oor jong Afrikaners wat optree soos jong Afrikaners. En ek glo nie ek’t al ooit so iets gesien nie.

Colossal

Colossal: A head-scratching high-concept film

Every now and then there is a film that graces our screens that is just unquestionably “high concept”. You know the films I’m talking about: those odd projects that come out of left-field with a central premise that presents an oddly specific set of elements and often requires a certain suspension of disbelief to really get into. These movies often sacrifice character development and interaction to service the central premise of the film. Colossal is largely one of those films. If you thought Jurassic Park had too many dinosaurs and Godzilla wasn’t realistic enough then stop reading here. For everyone else: let’s talk!

Ready Player One

Ready. Player. Wonderwall.

Ready Player One arrives at our shores just in time for Easter, and fittingly it is the quintessential turducken of an Easter feast. It is an Easter egg stuffed with Easter eggs, wrapped in Easter eggs and – to take this metaphor possibly too far, but screw it – covered in rich melted Easter egg sauce.

Call Me By Your Name

Call Me By Your Name: More than just a romantic story

Imagine the most European thing you can think of. Is it a sentient glass of red wine smoking a cigarette on a balcony overlooking Paris discussing the philosophical theories of Derrida? Because that is what I think of. Whatever your most European image might be though, I am almost certain that nothing could be more European than this film. This is the epitome of Europe in all its academic, cultural and slightly pretentious glory. This is European with a capital E. And you know what, it may also be the most heartfelt and affecting film I have seen in a very long time.
