Cashback is about an art student when after a hard break-up begins to suffer from insomnia, he decides to use this extra time in a night shift at a local Sainsburys. Whilst here he comes up with a rather imaginative way of dealing with the boredom. Enough about that film though, like I said I did write a review for it and you can check it out on my usual site or click on the link to the right.
Another film I watched this week was yet another I had reviewed before, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. As with Cashback you can check out the review to your right, it must be said that the Narnia films are taking a long time to hit the right audience. The Lord of the Rings happily appealed to everyone, with Narnia it’s very much the same problem that Harry Potter had, the first few instalments were just aimed at children. Now also like the Potter franchise, Narna is getting darker but still not there just yet.
Now for a film I hadn’t seen, I watched the Black Dahlia during the week, a murder mystery about the still unsolved murder of an aspiring actress in Hollywood. The film works quite well and is directed like a classic thriller, what do you expect from the great Brian De Palma? The performances are just as good; Aaron Eckhart and Josh Hartnett play the brooding boxers turned cops very well and as usual Scarlet Johanssen sizzles on screen. It can be a little hard to follow so make sure you concentrate though and much like “From Hell” it does ruin the mystery of the whole murder that is such a bad idea but still worth seeing.
