Five upcoming films I’m excited about

2 Comments

I’m utterly fond of old films and most of the time that’s what I watch. Sometimes though, a marvellous new film is released. And then there are the people in the film industry who I assiduously follow. For example, I watch everything with Dylan Moran and Cillian Murphy. 2013 has been a good film year and so far I’ve enjoyed Los amantes pasajeros (I’m So Excited), Hitchcock, Broken, A Liar’s Autobiography and Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa amongst others. It doesn’t seem to end there either and so here are a few upcoming films I’m excited about at the moment.the doubleThe Double
British comedy (2013)

This is an adaption of the novella The Double by Fyodor Dostoyevsky about a man who is driven insane by the sight of his doppelgänger. I have been waiting for Richard Ayoade’s next film ever since his fantastic Submarine. I really hope that it lives up to my expectations.grand pianoGrand Piano
Spanish American thriller (2013)

Moments before his comeback performance, a concert pianist who suffers from stage fright discovers a note written on his music sheet. A real-time thriller with nods to Alfred Hitchcock and Dario Argento. How can one resist?filthFilth
Scottish crime comedy drama (2013)

A bipolar, bigoted junkie cop manipulates and hallucinates his way through the festive season in a bid to secure promotion and win back his wife and daughter. It’s based on the novel by Irvine Welsh.philomenaPhilomena
British drama (2013)

A world-weary political journalist picks up the story of a woman’s search for her son, who was taken away from her decades ago after she became pregnant and was forced to live in a convent. Starring Steve Coogan, another favourite of mine, who also co-wrote it.

Japanese drama (2013)

A journalist discovers dark secrets in the life of an apparently happy couple. I adore Japanese cinema and this tale of female empowerment and male guilt sounds amazing.

  1. I didn’t realise Richard Ayoade had a new film out, how exciting! I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for that.
