Peaky Blinders Season 4 Episode 5 Review – ‘The Duel’

Liam Hoofe reviews the fifth episode of Peaky Blinders season 4…

With 2017 drawing to a close, Peaky Blinders is making a late surge to make it on to our ‘top 10 of the year’ lists. The season’s fifth episode ‘The Duel’ was another tightly packed, high-octane thrill ride that set the show on course for an explosive finale next week.

The show started as it meant to go on, with Luca Changretti and his men ambushing Tommy, only to discover that they had been set up by him and Polly. The sequence was perfectly executed and a thrill to watch. Tommy managed successfully to box in the Italians, coming face to face with Changretta in one of the episode’s most tense moments. Of course, though, we are going to have wait for their big final showdown until the next episode, and this week’s collision was halted by the arrival of the local police.

Peaky Blinders Season 4 Review

For us heathens that brandish figurative razor blade-endowed flat caps stateside as (un)official members of the Peaky Blinders crew, it’s been a particularly strenuous month or so. Season 4 of Steven Knight’s addictive gangster drama has been airing new episodes weekly in Europe since November 15th. Considering the manner in which season 3 concluded, international employees of Shelby Company Ltd have been suffering through their own form of detox, desperately resisting spoilers each passing Wednesday.

Thankfully, Netflix will provide the fix by releasing all six episodes of season 4 on December 21st. It’s a largely meaningless conciliation for enthusiasts, no doubt, as the entirety of season 4 will have already premiered overseas by that time, but I digress.

For those needing a refresher – in the waning moments of season 3, the Shelby family were celebrating their triumph over the Russians inside Tommy’s office while he distributed the spoils of the Blinders’ latest victory amongst them.

Film Review: ‘Bullet Head’

Film Review: ‘Bullet Head’
Good intentions sometimes come in odd packages, and while one doesn’t doubt writer-director Paul Solet’s sincerity, “Bullet Head” makes his judgment questionable — a vaguely “Reservoir Dogs”-esque crime thriller is not, it turns out, the ideal vehicle in which to plead for humane treatment of actual dogs. Even without that earnest underlying agenda, this slick but ungainly opus would be a curious animal, with its mix of present-tense suspense and (too many) comedic or sentimental flashbacks, as robbers Adrien Brody, John Malkovich and Rory Culkin kill time in a warehouse after a bungled heist.

None of the actors is at his best in the Bulgaria-shot feature, with Antonio Banderas especially thanklessly deployed as a nemesis. Add in dialogue that often labors for wit or profundity; doggy-pov shots and flashbacks; plus the fact that this appeal to canine lovers involves critters that are bloody and torn from illegal fighting matches — a sure turnoff to much of

Peaky Blinders Series 4 Episode 4 Review – ‘Dangerous’

Liam Hoofe reviews the fourth episode of Peaky Blinders series 4…

As jam-packed hours of television go, you are going to struggle to find anything more exhilarating than Peaky Blinders right now. This week’s episode wasted no time moving forward and with only two episodes of the show left, things are only going to get more exciting in the coming weeks.

What Peaky Blinders does so exceptionally well is keep all of its plates spinning at full speed. This week’s episode felt like the most action-packed yet, with all of the show’s key narratives given screen time. The biggest story in the show is obviously the Mafia’s quest to take out the Shelby family, and after last week’s surprise twist which saw Polly make a deal with Adrien Brody’s Changretta, this week it looked as though that wasn’t quite what it seems. In fact,

Movie Review – Bullet Head (2017)

Bullet Head, 2017.

Directed by Paul Solet.

Starring Adrien Brody, John Malkovich, Rory Culkin and Antonio Banderas.

Synopsis:

After a heist gone tragically wrong, three career criminals find themselves trapped in a warehouse with the law closing in. But, inside the warehouse, a more dangerous threat awaits—as the fugitives are plunged into a furious battle for their lives.

A lot is said about movie trailers ruining the experience. You watch a trailer that either shows the major plot points, the biggest laughs and surprises, or outright sell the wrong movie. On the other hand, going to see a movie knowing only the title and maybe who’s in it can also give you the wrong impression. This is to say I was very wrong about the type of movie Bullet Head is.

It all starts with a Pov scene. We look through the eyes of a creature being led by two men.

The 25 Youngest Men Ever Nominated for Best Actor

by Nathaniel R

Timothée Chalamet photographed by Craig McDean for Interview magazine

With the fine coming of age romantic drama Call Me By Your Name now in limited release, audiences can join critics in swooning over the revelatory work of Timothée Chalamet's as the preternaturally sophisticated but hormonally confused Elio. He won the Gotham Awards "Breakthrough" award last night. Should his incredible performance earn him an Academy nomination for Best Leading Actor, he will be the third youngest man to ever receive that honor (he turns 22 the day after Christmas)...

Only Mickey Rooney and Jackie Cooper were younger in their Oscar races and both happened in Oscar's first dozen years (!) when the Academy's habits and fetishes and aversions were still being sorted out. They quickly turned against really young actors. While many women have won Best Actress in their 20s, it's only happened once for a man. The youngest

Peaky Blinders Series 4 Episode 2 Review – ‘Heathens’

Liam Hoofe reviews the second episode of Peaky Blinders series 4…

Peaky Blinders returned to our screens last week with what I consider to be one of the best episodes of television in 2017. The episode was full of awesome moments and it shocked us all with its devastating ending.

This series’ second episode, ‘Heathens’ picked up where last week’s episode left off, focusing on the aftermath of John and Michael’s shooting. As the episode progressed we discovered that Michael survived, catching ricochets of bullets from John. John, though, was not that lucky, and we discover pretty quickly that The Blinders are going to be one man down from now on.

John’s funeral scene was an excellent sequence, one that really captured everything that is great about the show. No show on TV could make a funeral look as cool as this, with the Blinders gathered around paying their

Peaky Blinders Series 4 Episode 1 Review – ‘The Noose’

Liam Hoofe reviews the series 4 premiere of Peaky Blinders

This review contains major spoilers.

As recent British exports go, Peaky Blinders has to rank as one of the highest. The show, based around the notorious Midlands gangster group the Peaky Blinders – has become one of the most popular British shows in recent memory, thanks to some excellent writing, stylish production, an awesome cast and a big boost internationally thanks to Netflix. The show returned for its fourth series last night, and it looks set to be the show’s most exciting yet.

Picking up where last series left off, the episode opened with an ominous shot of the hangman’s noose, a stark reminder of the potential consequences facing the Blinders after Tommy’s apparent betrayal at the end of last series. It isn’t long before every member of the group has that noose around their neck, and the

Peaky Blinders recap: series four, episode one: The Noose

This cracker of an opening episode was tense, well-paced and tightly plotted, with a vengeance-driven bad guy played by Adrien Brody

Hello, and welcome back. Let’s all take a deep breath and raise a glass to John Shelby. He wasn’t the smartest brother, nor even the best at killing people, but I always had a soft spot for the hot-headed John with his empty bravado, big “We’re the Peaky fucking Blinders” speeches and not-so-deeply buried pain. Oh John, if only you could have seen out your days pretending you were a country squire while ineptly shooting at pheasants with a handgun …

This was a cracker of an opening episode, tense, well-paced and hinting at a welcome return to tightly plotted form after the baroque Russian excesses of the last series. For 18 episodes, Nick Cave has sung about a gathering storm, and it now truly feels as though
