With the advent of the personal screen, it’s no longer necessary to think of the audience member furthest back from the action. What becomes the new analogy for sitting in the nosebleed section of a theater is to be the audience member furthest away culturally from the filmmaker’s native orientation.

The Machine in My Shadow

These “Prawn,” as they are known, walk on hind legs, like us, but are disgusting to look at and barbaric and kinky besides. Come be a spectator at Alien Relocation Chief Wikus Van de Merwe’s life while it turns to sheer nightmare. His one hope of deliverance comes by looking his enemy in the eye from inside.

 

Better Keep Your Wits About You

Better Keep Your Wits About You

Luc Besson’s eleventh movie is an futuristic western adventure comedy with plenty of serious matters addressed.
