After last year’s excellent Midnight in Paris comes this documentary on the veteran filmmaker, Woody Allen. Woody Allen: A Documentary is a PBS production made for TV in the US, but released in cinemas in the UK (selected cinemas, naturally). The reviews thus far haven’t been Ã¼ber-enthusiastic, but if you’re fan of Allen’s work, then this should be an enlightening watch.
After Ti West’s last film, the abysmal effort that was Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever, it looks as if the genre director has returned to form with The Innkeepers. West is a horror director who understand the importance of character development and unlike the majority of his contemporaries, he refuses to cut straight to the gore -an effect of the ‘gorno’ legacy. This ghost story, about two minimum-wage ghost hunters, should be a slow-burn treat and if you enjoyed West’s, House of the Devil, then is a must-see.
