BOY

07/13/2013

 

Taika Waititi's sweet coming of age dramedy, set in 1984, about a motherless impoverished New Zealand child coping with the return of his absentee / recently paroled father. Beautiful, loved it, but not subtitled and the accents are charming, but dense: put your headphones on for this one!

THE WARRIOR'S WAY

01/13/2012

 
Fantasy, Western, Martial Art saga of a swordsman, a baby, a decrepit town of circus freaks, misfits and miscreants. Heavy use of effects, decent cast; including Geoffrey Rush, Kate Bosworth & Dong-Gun Jan. Cool, violent, but sweet and occasionally funny!
 

TRACKER

Violent yet beautiful story about a broken old Boer tracking a fugitive seafaring Maori with British troops on their tail. Ray Winstone and Temuera Morrison are perfectly cast in well written roles.
