The Mermaids Singing: Val McDermid

The Mermaids Singing: Val McDermid

From one of my favorite mystery writer, Val McDermid, 'The Mermaids Singing' follows a killer who thrives on finding ever more inventive ways to seduce and torture sexually confused young men and records their death struggles digitally to market them as interactive home movies. This twisted yet intriguingly ingenious thriller is a must-read.

Hands down the best film I've seen this year. A brilliant first feature film by video artist Steve McQueen about the story of IRA member Bobby Sands and the hunger strike he undertook while imprisoned in the early 1980s. Without posing moral judgement, the film highlights the subjectivity and power of conviction as well as its possible profundity and futility. This movie is scarce on dialogue but has one of the sharpest written 15 minute, single shot dialogue scenes I've ever had the pleasure of viewing.

  • If you are in the market for straight up revenge, this movie is it. Part of a trilogy of revenge movies including Sympathy for Mr. Vengence, and Lady Vengence, Oldboy is my personal favorite.

Beautiful cinematography coupled with one of the best directors in Japan, it even scored IFC's top 10 most scary scenes the year it came out. Not a first date kind of movie though. But perhaps the perfect post breakup movie ever made.

  • This is a harsh drama that's less about the painter Francisco Goya and more about the terrible fate of one of his model's (Portman) during the Spanish Inquisition.

Maybe I was too young at the time to read the book, but seeing the movie as an adult didn't make this story easier to swallow. The story is about an ex slave haunted by the trauma and terror of her past life. Having been brutalized savagely by her slave masters, she made a desperate choice which resulted in the death of her own children. Now, with a new life and a teen daughter, she is haunted, literally by a spirit that may have something to do with the mysterious young woman that has just entered her family's life.

PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE - Forest Whitaker The buzz has been really great and I like Forest Whitaker. The story is about a newly graduated young doctor, Nicolas from Scotland, who goes to Uganda in 1970s hoping that he can offer his help to the Ugandan people. Instead of serving the poor, he mets the charismatic Uganda dictator Idi Amin and his life is forever changed. I have decided that Forest Whitaker has an Oscar worthy performance as 'Idi Amin Dada. It is almost possible to forget that he is acting. The movie has a documentary visual style that captures the energy and exuberance of a young nation in the throes of optimism and works it into a foreboding frenzy. A must see!! I highly recommend.
