BEYOND CLUELESS

This documentary looks at teen movies from the recent golden age (mid-90’s-mid-00’s) andrecognises similar traits of the genre. So you’ve got alienation, sex, murder, tribes, and raucousholidays. ‘Beyond Clueless’, is exclusively made up of clips from enjoyable films with a review style narration (delivered by ‘The Craft’s lead actress Fairuza Balk) and the opinions ofwriter/director Charlie Lyne, who more interestingly ran a successful Kickstarter campaign tofund this movie.You’d expect interviews with the stars in a documentary of this kind, but there’s no retrospectivematerial at all, which makes it feel like a ‘Teen Movies Greatest Hits moments’ and not muchmore.Lyne, at...

Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) directs this Richard Curtis-scripted (Four Weddings) tale of slum kids in the Brazilian favellas. Raphael (Rickson Tev), Gador (Eduardo Luis) and Rato (Gabriel Weinstein) discover a wallet on their rubbish tip which holds information that could lead to a corrupt cop being exposed. Cue much running and jumping around on rooftops and dodging highway trafficuntil the side of good wins out.Based on a kid’s book, I thought the young actors were the best thing about the movie. ‘Trash’ isn’t funny or ‘sparky’ enough, and the movie’s incessant dark tone envelopes what little fun tries to escape....

Selma

Knowing nothing about Martin Luther King Jnr. other than the basics (black icon, assassination), I watched ‘Selma’ with a mixture of admiration at what people can achieve through a collective will, and some sadness that only last year, some fifty years after these events, that America still has such huge racial problems.MLK (David Oyelowo) and the SCLC are looking for a town that is ready to march in protest at the US government refusing to grant black Americans the right to vote.
