Bernie is the kind of comedy that makes you wonder whether there’s something wrong with you or not. When you pick up a film that masquerades itself as a comedy you expect to laugh at least once, even if it’s just a mildly amused-sounding snort of approval. Bernie tiptoes along that line that separates blunt black comedy from bleak drama to the point where the film is very … Continue reading Bernie

The Returned (Les Revenants)

What would you do if the dead came back to life? Act like nothing happened? Freak out and run for the hills? Top yourself before the going gets too tough?
