Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

The Paperboy trailer turned up online this week – and I have no idea what to make of it.

The purportedly true story of a man, Hilary (John Cusack), on death row for killing a sheriff and his fiancée’s (Nicole Kidman) attempt to get him out, it doesn’t seem to stick to that brief. And neither does Kidman, whipping off her panties to get Zac Efron’s little man out of jail too – the pants jail, that is.

Add in a troupe of showgirls, a hell of a lot of split-screen, a sweaty Matthew McConaughey, David Oyelowo shouting, a semi-naked Zac Efron dancing in his Y-fronts and (apparently) a scene where Kidman wees on him, and Lee Daniels’ steamy thriller really is quite bizarre.

In the words of Time Magazine, the film “digs deep, down and dirty with intense emotions and sensational indignities”. In the words of me, it looks flipping bonkers.

Here’s the trailer – there’s no release date yet.
