List of movie review posts
Agora (2010): The story of Hypatia, the woman whose life and death came to symbolize the fall of Classical civilization.
Carol (2015): Romance in a dark time, but with a happy ending, for a change.
District 9 (2009): The originality of this South African science-fiction film puts Hollywood's endless sequels and rehashes to shame.
Frozen (2013): The colossal pop-culture phenomenon carries a subtle but powerful message of self-liberation. On claims of a hidden pro-gay agenda in the song "Let It Go", see here.
Lincoln (2012): A superb exploration of the messy moral ambiguities of real-life politics.
Prometheus (2012): The Alien prequel clutters up its SF with too many religious themes (I'm a lot less impressed with the movie now than I was when I wrote this).
V for Vendetta (2005): A visually-brilliant, morally ambiguous fantasy of rebellion against fascism in a future Britain.
The Wicker Man (1973): Two views of paganism, both thought-provoking, and good music too.
