This is a great film. It is a rare treat as it is both artistically innovative and highly entertaining. So many of the 'professional' reviews for this film merely describe why it is interesting but do not mention that it is a very funny film. Although the visual images were coopted from a documentary photography project, the script is entirely fictional and mainly focuses on the perspective of the main character, a 15 year old boy 'played' by the director's brother. This gives us a very interesting insight into the thought processes of 15 year old boys, what interests them and how they view the world. The other main character is a young American student traveling in Mexico who befriends this teenage boy. If you want to laugh but also like well made films then this is a good film to watch.

The Conjuring (15)

Hugely enjoyable, genuinely scary horror flick that provides a welcome throwback to classic 1970s chillers, thanks to impeccable production design, a superb script, powerfully atmospheric direction, intense set-pieces and terrific performances.
