Successful Alcoholics by Jordan Vogt-Roberts

19 08 2013

After a few weeks of deep beats and dark bars, I felt the Chive needed a bit of perking up. This little bit of light relief has manifested itself in the form of Jordan Vogt-Roberts’, Successful Alcoholics. This film is truly hilarious! The two leads played by TJ Miller and Lizzy Caplan really shine and as an audience you not only side with them but almost too believe that alcoholism could in the right circumstances, be a viable way of living. Eccentric and jocular, bizarre but brilliant, crack open a nice cold alcoholic beverage and enjoy this convivial cinematic experience.

Extranjero by The Queen

19 07 2013

Interesting, beautiful and captivating. Extranjero ask the viewer more questions than it gives answers. Shot in just in just over two days, the London Sundance winning short provides a visually spectacular, strong cinematic storytelling short. It’s poignancy in current affairs and thought provoking nature presents social issues in relation to the ostracising and exclusion of immigrants in a foreign environment. Directed by London based Dan Lumb and Crinan Campbell, this film will not let you down.
