DEVS is a miniseries written and entirely directed by Alex Garland. All eight episodes are now streaming on FX on Hulu. DEVS concerns a mysterious tech company called Amaya.

CD Review: EX-MACHINA soundtrack

28 DAYS LATER and SUNSHINE writer Alex Garland makes a gradually impressive directing debut in front of the lens with this beautifully appointed, but at-first sterile adult sci-fi picture that gradually builds to end on a memorable high note.

The best films of 2010, in the opinion of this reviewer (who still has to catch up with THE FIGHTER, WINTER’S BONE and several other acclaimed releases): THE SOCIAL NETWORK Normally, people working with computers is one of the most boring things that can be put on screen.

The fact that the film is about the […]Read On »
