river queen

Here’s my latest film review: of River QueenThe film follows Sarah’s search for her child, a search set against the backdrop of the viscous fighting between Maori and Pakeha that is part of the history of the Whanganui River. for full review

I do these for a Denominational magazine, who allow me to place them on the web once the monthly magazine has been published.

My other film reviews include;
Brokeback Mountain here;
Narnia here;
Serenity here;
The World’s Fastest Indian here;
Sedition, a New Zealand film about the fate of conscientious objectors in World War 2, here;
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, here
Next month I review Crash.
