Zoolander 2

Really, really, ridiculously disappointing.

The Assassin

There are martial arts movies and there are martial arts movies. The Assassin isn't either.

Batman v Superman

A bold, mature exploration of myths and epics - followed by a two-hour mess.

An Oversimplification of Her Beauty
Director: Terence Nance
Cast: Alisa Becher, Jc Cain, Dexter Jones

Terence Nance’s An Oversimplification of Her Beauty is an experimental film. Taking footage from an existing film made by Nance in 2010, titled How Would You Feel?, the director layers it with animation and a seductive baritone narrator, who promises to add factual context to the events on screen.

A boy expects a girl to come round to his house. She phones him to say that she won’t be coming round. He feels bad. Then it starts all over again.

Looping the scenario over and over, Nance treats us to occasionally interesting visuals and constant monologuing, as the boy’s increasingly neurotic concerns about his feelings become increasingly neurotic about his feelings, which become increasingly neurot– you get the idea. Yes, the idea behind the project is interesting, but only for about 11 seconds.

Every so often, the voice booms: How would you feel?

Bored, mostly.
