• Help!!!

    Mar 23, 2015

    Not a Brunel intellectual challenge, this is a recommended satirical comedy, easy to enjoy and a feather in the cap of Johnnie To’s varied filmography.

  • Hidden Heroes

    Mar 24, 2015

  • Looking For Mister Perfect

    Apr 13, 2015

  • The Irresistible Piggies

    Mar 30, 2015

    The laughs can be a bit too parochial for inexperienced viewers while the sudden mood change from touching romance to typically surreal canto-humour may be too jarring for some.

  • The Lion Roars

    Apr 12, 2015

    ‘The Lion Roars’ is slickly produced, well performed by its beloved leading couple and not without its moments of amusement.

  • Three

    Feb 7, 2017
