I continue to be fortunate enough to have reviews published online at respected magazines. If you wish, please click on the link to read my review for Berlin Syndrome here at

An effectively made horror film without the gore but all the squeamishness, it boasts two brave performances from Teresa Palmer and Max Riermelt. I applaud the technique of the filmmakers but wonder who will really get much out of a film that deals with such harrowing subject matter as abduction and imprisonment.

Heavy is an independent magazine and website that is all about the music and specifically heavy music and supporting the Australian music scene in general. Fortunately for me they do cover film as well and I am very grateful to have had this review published on their website.

    1. Well I hope you enjoy it Pete but please don’t look at me like I’m a weirdo when you see it. At least two people walked out of the cinema when we were there and it was a free screening. I had a lot more fun watching Guardians of the Galaxy 2. That’s a movie about gunslingers in space who deal with family issues. Some are misreporting it as a comic book film but that’s a filthy lie because you don’t see comic book movies but you would like Guardians. 🙂

  1. I find silent crazy much scarier than scenery chewing crazy, so I fear Berlin Syndrome may be too harrowing for my taste.
    Congratulations on another published article Lloyd. Onwards and upwards!

    1. I think it was too harrowing for me Paul. It took me a year to gear up to watch The Room and I strode right into the cinema with my wife for this one. Yikes.
