Film Review: Paskal: The Movie (2018) - Malaysia (Netflix)

Film Review: Midnight in Paris (2011) - USA / Spain

Midnight in Paris (2011) - USA / Spain     Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Even the bravest fans of Woody Allen will say that he misses his mark for a good decade already. However in his 41st film, Allen shows us the qualities that make us fall in love with him for. Witty dialogue, cynical nature, feeling out of place in society, life and everything in general, “Midnight in Paris” is a perfect dose of dream, reality and fiction.

However, there is something intriguing about the premises of two strugglers suddenly getting an unexpected inheritance and how they react towards the whole situation. As Jamie Chung’s character expresses - “it will change people”. Greed is for most part a human characteristic and whether there is a just means for the decision and choice made by the characters remains to be seen. Director Michael...
