Mommy: Film Review

I will openly admit that I had never heard of French-Canadian writer/director/all-round super dude Xavier Dolan before Mommy was released last year and won a ton of awards. 273 more words



Whether or not you get on board with Mommy will be very much down to your initial reaction.  If you’re not a fan of subtitles, that will be tick number one in the against column, (although I really have to question why that would be an issue) while the fact it is shot in a 1:1 ratio might just be the final nail in any respective coffin.   676 more words


Review - Mommy

It’s hard to decide what’s more infuriating about Xavier Dolan’s Mommy – that the French-Canadian director has reached such dizzying heights at the ripe old age of 26, or that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences completely failed to recognise it at last year’s Academy Awards. 664 more words



Do not go and see this film if you have a headache – it is VERY SHOUTY. Inside director Xavier Dolan’s head must be a difficult place to be. 181 more words

For those who aren’t acquainted with Xavier Dolan, he’s about my age and has already made four very successful films in the European scene. 966 more words
