Film Review: The Two Popes (2019) - USA

The Two Popes (2019) - USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   There is something magical when Jonathan Pryce as Pope Francis chats with Anthony Hopkins as Pope Benedict at the museum.

Film Review: Call Me by Your Name (2017) - Italy / USA

Call Me by Your Name (2017) - Italy / USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   There is something extremely beautiful about Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me By Your Name” that seduce the audience into the film by its atmosphere, before focusing on the electrifying chemistry by the two amazing young leads and lovers played by (Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer).
