Review: King of Devil’s Island


King of Devil’s Island is essentially a prison movie, starring the wonderful Stellen Skarsgard as the Governor. However, due to some great touches to the script and performances the film manages to rise above so many others in this genre.

The build of tension is superbly done, and it is beautifully shot throughout.

I really, really liked it. I wrote a full review of King of Devil’s Island for Cinetalk.

Terracotta Film Festival 2012

The festival kicks-off today – and it’s where I’ll be living pretty much all this weekend. There’s a great selection of films, and some Q&A’s and other exciting bits and bobs thrown in. You can see the full programme, but my personal highlights are:

Thursday
MY WAY
An EPIC WWII film. I caught an early screening, and a review will follow this post!

Friday
UFO IN HER EYES
FROM UP ON POPPY HILL
HORROR MOVIE MARATHON

Saturday
ARIRANG
THE WOODSMAN AND THE RAIN

Sunday
HIMIZU
Which is a very dark response to the 2011 tsunami. I reviewed the film for CINETALK.
