A fine compendium of precise reviews for an enormous variety of films. Wondering if that film you've vaguely heard of might be worth viewing or if that classic stays fresh after decades? Check Billson's guide to get a sense of whether it's worth your time. Just beware, you may end up spending your time reading instead. Succinct, amusing but most of all, informative.
