Reflections on The Double by Rowena J Ronson

Reflections on The Double by Rowena J Ronson The Double (2013), directed by Richard Ayoade and written by Fyodor Dostoyevsky over 150 years ago, asks of us a very relevant question, even now. If you feel you are living the life of Pinocchio, and your wish is to be ‘a real boy’ (or girl), what…

Reflections on Blue Jasmine (2013) by Rowena J Ronson

Reflections on Blue Jasmine (2013) by Rowena J Ronson I had been wanting to see Woody Allen’s latest offering for a long while, but it was only this week that I, at last, managed it. And it was well worth the wait, as the film, in every accomplished way, met the formidably glorious high standard…

The Fly

While watching again David Cronenberg’s The Fly (1986), after nearly 30 years since its release, the gory bits did still have similar shocking effect. But what struck me the most this time, and from the perspective…

Blue is the Warmest Colour

Rowena J Ronson delights in the total intimacy of one of 2013’s most emotion-packed movies. I happened to see the trailer of the new award-winning French film Blue Is The Warmest Color and those few moments were enough for me to immediately book a seat and take myself off to London’s old and characterful Phoenix…
