ED SKREIN FOR SCHON! MAGAZINE

Comments Off on ED SKREIN FOR SCHON! MAGAZINE film, my words, sara darling, schon magazine

I went a bit wobbly when I interviewed actor Ed Skrein for Schon! magazine. I can’t even imagine how excited the stylist was (!!!) But obviously I remained professional, and got the goss on his latest projects.

We could have chatted all day, but alas I wasn’t allowed, so read my feature for Schon! AW issue here…

MY INTERVIEW WITH SCOTT HAZE FOR SCHON! MAGAZINE

Comments Off on MY INTERVIEW WITH SCOTT HAZE FOR SCHON! MAGAZINE film, my words, sara darling, schon magazine

I LOVE DOING A CELEBRITY INTERVIEW

Chatting about new films and LA is all very natural to me!!

But interviewing Mr Scott Haze (actor, Venom, very cute) I did get a little bashful.

Especially when my Spotify decided to start voluntarily mid conversation! 

However, we coped! Read my interview for AW18 of Schon! magazine print here

THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST

A MUST-SEE MOVIE about a same sex attraction therapy centre in America. It will make you cringe but that’s what makes a good movie right?

A FANTASTIC WOMAN – NEXT YEARS OSCAR?

Comments Off on A FANTASTIC WOMAN – NEXT YEARS OSCAR? 55Factory, film, my words, review, sara darling

A FILM FIT FOR AN OSCAR

When you watch a film that you immediately want to watch again, there is something good about that movie. 

This is what happened when I saw the preview for A Fantastic Woman. So touching and delicate, and without a hint of anything I had ever seen before.

The lead performance by unknown Daniela Vega will stay with you long after the film, as however much you try and fight it, it makes you question your own morals and standing on sexuality.

BEACH RATS OR BEACH BABES?

Comments Off on BEACH RATS OR BEACH BABES? 55Factory, film, my words, review, sara darling

A MOVIE YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO MISS

I love a good indie film, and the second feature length movie by director Eliza Hittman did not disappoint. 

Set in fading Brooklyn, the timeless scenery was the perfect backdrop for the long hot summer that unfolded as a group of teenage boys filled their days with amusement arcades, smoking spliffs and chasing girls.

Pretty standard right? But the twist came when we see the super talented Brit Harris Dickinson who is also starring in his first major role, cruising internet chat rooms for men….

Poignant, uncomfortable and relatable. After all we have all been teenagers right?

SUNTAN THE GREEK MOVIE WAY

Comments Off on SUNTAN THE GREEK MOVIE WAY 55Factory, film, lifestyle, my words, review, sara darling

A GREEK SUNTAN IS TOO MUCH FOR SOME! 

If someone was to tell me that there would be a Greek movie about a middle aged doctor who falls in love with a student twenty years his junior, and things go wrong- I would think that sounded about right..but there is nothing right about the storyline of this film.  

Uncomfortable, funny and just a little bit odd in equal measures. If you’re a fan of indie films, you’ll probably like this! 

I reviewed director Argyris Papadimitropoulos’s ‘Suntan’ for 55Factory. Read more here

MULTIPLE MANIACS THE MOVIE. NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED

Comments Off on MULTIPLE MANIACS THE MOVIE. NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED film, my words, review, sara darling

BLOOD, GUTS, GORE AND GLORY IN MULTIPLE MANIACS

Multiple Maniacs

With John Waters movies, you know you should expect the expect the unexpected and quite often the unimaginable. If not the depraved and  certainly bad taste. In fact, the winning combination of Waters and Divine ensures that they probably wanted to out-filth each other!

The remastered release of his cult film Multiple Maniacs, stars his muse Divine, and is a personal portrait into their relationship (if nothing else!) Written, directed, edited, shot and produced solely by Waters, ensured that the disturbing content didn’t meet any paying public’s eye until it was released in 1970. And even then it was a mission to get it to anything other than strip club theatres!

Multiple Maniacs

 

Setting the scene in the opener of the film, is a naked Lady Divine, bitching away at her long suffering partner, David; Before claiming the limelight and starring in the aptly named spectacle ‘The Cavalcade of Perversions’, showcasing the filthy and unimaginable. Seemingly a normal act, as a finale to every show, Divine comes in and robs the patrons at gunpoint, however after this show, she tires of just mugging them, and decides to murder them instead

Drag Queen Divine is simply divine, in adopting a bolshy over sexed, larger than life role, and you can see elements of this in her prostitute daughter’s character, Cookie- with whom she seeks refuge in the city, when she is on the run. 

Daily life continues, but revenge is on the cards when Lady D is tipped off that her boyfriend David is seeing one of the performers. Setting out with no holds barred, her colossal character is intercepted by two glue-sniffers, and she is floored and raped. Whilst contemplating these surreal events, a young boy in the shape of the Infant of Prague appears and leads her to the steps of a church. Unsure but intrigued, Lady D heads inside only to be seduced by an attractive young woman, and experiences anal sex involving a string of rosary beads.

This new twist is a added bonus to Divine’s mission. Now declaring herself lesbian, she is adamant to get revenge on her puny boyfriend. With more twists and turns, and religious flashbacks, the two couples meet again at Cookie’s apartment, where they are intent on murder. And those who like blood and guts will not be disappointed! With an exhausting and seemingly never ending monologue, Divine is joined by a lobster, and is completely unrepentant, cackling “you’re a maniac now Divine”. 

A film which doesn’t warrant a finale, Waters makes sure Divine stretches it out as long as possible, running through the streets of  Baltimore, insane, bloody, and wearing a mink coat, trying to kill anyone she can get at to the soundtrack of “God Bless America”. 

Multiple Maniacs

For laughs, squirms and an insight to a drug addled mind, this remastered version is definitely worth a watch. Waters distributed the movie 46 years ago and now Maniacs is on general release with Janus Films and the Criterion Collection.

Book your tickets for a cinema near you. Opening this weekend.
