Edge of Tomorrow

Magic Magic

Foreboding, tedious US-enhanced Chilean psycho thriller that's decidedly half-baked in the thrills dept.

Ali

Michael Mann's kaleidoscopic biopic is a technical masterpiece, but it plays out like a 3 hour montage.

Powerful race biopic, painted in broad brush strokes. Forrest Gump without the wit or subtlety.

Brisbane 1982

30 years too late, but I've just come accross Australian social documentary photographer Rennie Ellis. Above is "At the pub, Brisbane 1982" - a photo which says so much of a time and a place. Below is one from a 1978 AC/DC tour.
