Review: Frances Ha

When I first saw the trailers and reviews for Frances Ha (2012)  I was pretty excited. This was a new black and white comedy film, set in New York – and I envisaged it as possibly a modern-day Manhattan, but with a eccentric female protagonist in the lead. Perhaps a bit more artsy and more openly serious than Woody Allen’s style, but hopefully somewhere in that ball-park.  The film follows Frances, a woman in her late...

Review: The Hooligan Factory

With the cliché ridden football hooligan genre reaching over-saturation point some time ago, it’s surprising we haven’t really had much in the way of spoofery yet. But The Hooligan Factory aims to put that right. Focusing on budding young lout Danny and his chance meeting with legendary ’80s hard man Dex, the film is a knockabout comedy which plays moments of casual violence for laughs and occasionally references the well...
