I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.

13) “Candlestick”

Andrew Fitch delivers a superb performance which is a perverse mixture of subtlety and ham.

After this movie’s dizzyingly good opening title sequence, we are shown a gorgeous shot of London. Then the first words are spoken by two of the main characters. Then we take a second to change our perceptions.

The way these characters speak, act and work off one another is hammy and theatrical. How could anyone like this? Because it is a tribute to the great thrillers of the 40’s through 60’s.

This small, independent, British film captures with its minimalist approach, all that film-lovers have been missing, while delivering something wholly new.

Please check it out, this film deserves your support.

Here’s my review: “Candlestick”

2423, 22, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 21
