Acclaimed Korean director Park Chan-wook presents his American debut; a fairytale with a gothic twist. The story of a teenage girl’s sexual awakening could not be more beautifully shot or stylishly presented. Part horror, part psychological thriller and part coming-of-age drama, Stoker is full of surprises.
The Paperboy is a delicious piece of abundant cinematic melodrama set in sultry Florida in the summer of 1969. From writer and director Lee Daniels, who last brought us Precious, the film is based on the true events surrounding the murder of a sheriff in a small town, and a team of journalists and their associates who attempt to get to the truth.
For our fourth Monday Face/Off, we at BFF Towers have decided to mark imminent release of Stoker with a titanic battle over the worth of Australian Oscar winner Nicole Kidman. In the film, Tom Cruise’s ex plays the unstable mother of India (not the nation), whose father has just passed away, and his mysterious brother comes to move in with them. Tagged: DO NOT DISTURB THE FAMILY, we shall determine whether dearest Nicole is disturbingly good or simply disturbing. In the pro camp stands Ray, ready to defend NK’s honour: in the anti-camp stands Carlotta, sharpening her knives in anticipation of a slaughter. Let the butchery begin!
