Some people have questioned why all my film reviews are so positive. To put it bluntly I only review films that I have liked. I rarely bother about the not-so-good ones (e.g. the apathetic Elephant and the mediocre Equilibrium). Perhaps I should but to be honest I don’t really have the time!

Having just said this I saw an excellent Cantonese film yesterday called ‘The Eye‘. At the age of two, Wong Kar Mun went blind. Eighteen years later a new and risky corneal transplant operation restores her vision, but a series of inexplicable events leads her to believe there is much more than meets the eye to her newfound gift of sight. I’ll say no more but sufficed to say as psychological thrillers go its pretty scary!
