Film Review: Unicorn Store (2017) - USA

Unicorn Store (2017) - USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Strictly independent, comes the on-screen inspired pairing of Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson with a futurist vision in the now established Marvel pairing. This is a very unique film as it is so light hearted in its execution with a strong focus on staying true to your childhood dreams including wanting to have an unicorn.

Film Review: Somewhere Beyond the Mist 藍天白雲 (2017) - Hong Kong

Somewhere Beyond the Mist 藍天白雲 (2017) - Hong Kong   Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia) There is something extremely outright depressing in “KJ” Director Cheung King Wai’s latest film “Somewhere Beyond the Mist”. In fact, redemption is kept to be minimal as we witness how simple minded people can do wicked actions due to the circumstances that they have been thrown upon and in this case, a troubled pair of youth. We get an engrossing tale of problems for the underprivileged as well as a glimpse of Hong Kong middle class struggling with issues of their...

38HKFA Coverage: Tracey 翠絲 (2019) - Hong Kong Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)Commercial Hong Kong cinema rarely goes the daring route in portraying a story of a transsexual played by the evergreen and Best Actor nominee Philip Keung. Scripted and produced by veteran film critic Shu Qi, the film attempts to deal with a wide spectrum of controversial and day to day topics, including family dynamics, sexual orientation and acceptance of oneself and society. New director Jun Li does extremely well in capturing the small happiness and interesting delights of being oneself and rhythm well with...

38HKFA Coverage: Men on the Dragon 逆流大叔 (2018) - Hong Kong Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia) as part of 38th Hong Kong Film AwardsLocal Hong Kong film production about Hong Kong stories will always have an advantage in the current reviewer mindset.

It is more about the personality and lives of these middle aged men played expertly by the versatile Francis Ng (Best Actor...
