Hannibal - Season 2 Episode 9 - Margot

Hannibal Episode 2.9 Recap

In “Shiizakana” we are asked to forget the fast paced, twisty-turny, Will Graham-on-trial arc that velocitized our television watching appetites earlier this season, and to get used to the emotional and psychological contemplation of the now classic Hannibal as an episodic nightmare format.

Douche Ranking Game of Thrones: Episode 4.3

After harrowing trial-and-error experiments, we at Dork Shelf have developed a precise scale wherein douchiness is measured in Joffreys, and awesomeness is measured the most glorious creature in the fantasy genre: dragons. Where do our favourite heroes and heels rank this week?

Only Lovers Left Alive Review

Only Lovers Left Alive might be world renowned auteur Jim Jarmusch’s most widely accessible film, but that doesn’t mean it’s a straight up vampire story or a tale of lovers under strain. It’s a eulogy for a dying way of life that paints the filmmaker as the last of a dying breed.

Interview: Dominic Purcell, Izaak Smith, & Damien Lee

We talk to actors Dominic Purcell and Izaak Smith and director Damien Lee about their collaboration on the boxing film A Fighting Man, and about the film’s time shifting structure, how the characters very candidly relate to Purcell and Smith’s real life struggles, and why it took Lee almost twenty years to get around to making the film.

Blue Ruin Review

Somewhere between a coal black American pastoral and the restrained brutality of a Nicolas Winding Refn film, Jeremy Saulnier’s Blue Ruin is a chilling, minimalist, and bloody revenge thriller and cat and mouse game taking place in bucolic rural and suburban settings.
