'Blackhat' is thematically rich but suffers from narrative confusion

Michael Mann’s Blackhat opens with a heavily computer generated map of the internal workings of a city nuclear power plant. Shifting perspectives, rushing along power lines and electrical circuits we are thrust into a complex interior system. As we rush into the final moments of the sequence, the lines finally run a blood red before exploding: this sets the scene for an international hacker thriller in which technology becomes a mirror for the human body as well as society itself.The incredible digital landscape of the opening sequence soars like the Beyond the Infinite sequence in 2001: A Space Odyssey - but tactile, mechanical and fragile.

We Just Wanna Have Some Fun, Down At The Rock And Roll Club

Not sure if January 15th being both the arcane feast of Saint Paul the First Hermit and the day that Prince Palu gave up his futile search for some sort of medically induced hibernation have anything to do with each other, but it sure is cold outside. However, we are sure that, unlike Paul of Thebes, Prince Palu does not have a raven that brings bread to his cave everyday, so he went out and bought some thermal underwear and resigned himself to the fact that these are our days until the first or second week of May. Now resign yourself too and here are some live music options for you this week.

Top Films of 2014

Before I start this list I have a few things to say: I try as much as much as possible to keep up with movies, however I could not get to a showing of The Imitation Game (Dir. Morten Tyldum), Snowpiercer (Dir. Joon-Ho Bong), The Rover (Dir. David Michod) or Joe (Dir. David Gordon Green) (sincere apologies to Nick Cage) in time for this list. Other films I was unable to see include the Christmas day releases of Unbroken (Dir. Angelina Jolie) and Big Eyes (Dir. Tim Burton). Due to being limited releases (most receiving wide release only in January) I was also unable to see Inherent Vice (Dir. P.T.


'Big Eyes' strips Tim Burton bare

 “From far away you look like an artist, but up close you’re nothing”, a line from Tim Burton’s new film, Big Eyes, that could come to describe the trajectory of his career. Throughout the 80’s and 90’s he established a reputation as the kind of auteur situated comfortably between the demands of art and commerce; meaning he could adapt all sorts of brands to the screen, whether they be a comic book (Batman), television show (Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure) or even trading card (Mars Attacks!), all while maintaining a distinctly personal touch arisen from gothic horror, expressionism, animation and mid-20th century kitsch.
