Her current notoriety is due almost entirely to the producers of the film John Maloof and Charlie Siskel. They are obsessed with digging up her personal history to find out why she never entered the canon of great street photographers sanctioned by the art world establishment.
The film succeeds in rendering a personal face to the so often aggrandised problem of immigration, but is undermined by the disjunctive fictional sub-narrative... the film is a real spectacle and a testament to the stark anthropic disassociation and dissemblance that occurs in migratory investigations.
Set in 2032, Snowpiercer imagines a world after a cataclysmic event caused by World governments in an attempt to counter global warming. The effect is that almost all of the human population is wiped it in a never-ending winter.
So much can be gained in five to ten minutes, and the The Loch Ness film Festival which begins its fourth annual run at the end of the month celebra...
Credited with creating the first celebrity chefs, rescuing Teddy Pendergrass from the "gangsterism" of club promoters and instrumental in forging Alice Cooper's horror-show persona, Shep is the subject of a rollicking and sweetly touching documentary by Mike Myers.
But mostly I am forever captivated by the way he can take something seemingly innocent and happy: a wedding, an act of kindness, a child or love, and slowly undress and destroy it right before our eyes revealing its true nature - as if you were dating someone too good to be true then you find out he's one of those adult nappy wearers, shocking.
As part of this year's Poetry International festival, London's own Southbank Centre teamed up with the bosses of Filmpoem, PoetryFilm, and the Zebra Poetry Film Festival to launch, a competition for short films based on poems.
Over the past couple of years, films such as Kill List and In Fear have proved the British horror and thriller film industry is alive and well and taking on Hollywood at its own game. I have a feeling Awaiting will soon be joining their ranks.
Divided into six parts, How To Train Your Dragon 2 gives us a tantalising glimpse into the world of a major Hollywood animation. There are stunning pictures of the different featured landscapes - from frozen wastelands, arctic mountains to lush forests and underwater worlds.
Fast-forward three years and director Matt Reeves, best known for Cloverfield, takes over the reigns for the equally clunkily-titled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. But don't let the title fool you; this is every bit the worthy successor to the original that you could hope for.
Perhaps now more than ever, with cinema ticket prices at astronomic highs, trailers are of increasing importance. For most people, a trailer will be the first impression one gets from a movie... A trailer shouldn't stand outside in its Y-fronts in broad daylight, swinging the script over its head and screaming the ending at the top of its lungs.
I've somehow managed to avoid writing about Frozen up until now. This is incredible considering how much of my life it seems to have taken up recently. Now of course Frozen has a moral message about the importance of family and love and blah blah blah. I'm not too interested by that part of it. So instead here are the really important messages I want my girls to take away from Frozen.
How does it rank against the other three films? Well it's possibly the best TF movie since the 2007 original. Long, yes; occasionally incoherent, (Mark Wahlberg seems to ignore full stops in his script), and it features some awful CGI - the enemy robots are made from gravity-defying blocks that appear to have no weight or heft, making them look like a bad video game cut scene.
I have no doubt we'll soon see lightweight gimbals marketed at consumers who are tired of shaky footage of their holidays or the kids' sports day. When that day comes, people will be able to have high quality, smooth movement to go with their HD cameras.
They were cheesy and full of bright colours, big hair and even bigger shoulder pads, but the 80s were a seminal decade for movies. I know there are some notables that haven't made the cut, but I can't include everything. That is the nature of lists. They start and they end.
It was my second day as a HuffPo intern... I noticed an owl flutter past the window with a letter clutched in its beak. An owl?! During day time?! In Central London?! What more, the letter was addressed to me, 'Miss Vicky Chan, Desk by the Kitchen, Capper Street, London'.
