Mei (2019)

Suresh Balajee and George produce this film that is written and directed by SA Baskaran. Mei is one of those medico thrillers that Kollywood of late has taken a fancy for.

The Green Inferno (2013)

I’ve always found Eli Roth’s films to be mixed bags. GREEN INFERNO is by far his best picture, but as in most of his other films his limitations as a dialogue writer are foregrounded too often, albeit thankfully to nowhere near the extent they were in the RZA’s execrable vanity project MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS. His character development skills, however, show unexpected signs of … Continue reading The Green Inferno (2013)
