Unsung Heroes: Margaret Sixel And 480 Hours of Mad Max: Fury Road Footage

Hats off to Margaret Sixel, the South African born editor of Mad Max: Fury Road. Up to that point, George Miller’s long-term editing partner (and also his wife) had never edited an action film before. And now she’s turned in the adrenalin main-lining film with surprising characterisation and depth, all told on the move in […]

The Double 0 Curio – A Tribute to Timothy Dalton as James Bond

When Casino Royale came out in 2008, critics and punters alike were head over heals for it. Quite rightly, it is a very good film (until the last twenty minutes) and had at last taken Bond away from the incredibly silly direction the Pierce Brosnan films were careering towards at breakneck speed. Daniel Craig was seen to […]

Hannibal: Script To Screen

Recently Hannibal, the TV adaptation of author Thomas Harris’ cannibalistic gourmand Hannibal Lector’s exploits finished its third run, with NBC ceasing to air any further seasons. As it looks unlikely that any other channels will pick the show up, it ended on a fitting cliff-hanger, Graham and Hannibal tumbling to their seeming doom, a la […]

Reappreciation Society: Heaven’s Gate

Heaven’s Gate, Michael Cimino’s grand, epic retelling of the Johnston County War in 1892 Wyoming, has become a byword for profligacy and headstrong vanity. In truth, based on a notorious early review that examined everything but the film on screen, vexatiously fixated on scurrilous rumour and annoyance at being kept in the dark about the production.

Extra Relish: My On-Set adventure with Michael Collins

  In the summer of 1995, the cry went out for unpaid volunteers to pad out the crowd scenes for Neil Jordan’s epic drama Michael Collins. Thousands heeded the call, and I, dear reader, was one of them. On leave from work for a few days in early August, I idly flicked through the local […]
