Allure Movie Review

Allure Movie Review
The Allure is Evan Rachel Wood

Carlos and Jason Sanchez are Canadian photographers. Together, they have written and directed "Allure", their feature debut. It explores two abusive relationships, one between an adult woman and a teenage girl and another between the same adult woman and a man older than her.

Laura Drake (Evan Rachel Wood) seems a bit off right from the get-go. In the very first scene, a man enters her home, blindfolds himself, while she sits in her bedroom. It's sexual and very impersonal, and it falls apart quickly. Soon afterwards, Laura is at work in an office, where she appears to be equally unhappy. Her boss, William (Denis O'Hare) is also her father and that relationship isn't particularly smooth.

Laura also takes a job cleaning house for Nancy (Maxim Roy). Nancy's sixteen-year old daughter Eva (Julia Sarah Stone) also lives there and she's miserable. Her mother makes her play classical music on the piano and criticizes her playing on a regular basis.

Laura looks at Eva with a mixture of pity, caring, and someone to prey upon, even if it might be a subconscious thing. She convinces Eva that if she needs a respite from her misery that she can come stay with her. Somewhat surprisingly, Eva goes to stay with Laura. You can easily envision that this is probably not going to work out for the best.


All three of the leads do a fine job, but this is a showcase for Ms. Wood's prodigious acting talent. This is not meant to belittle the other two. It's that just by Ms. Wood's facial expressions, you can understand everything about her character. Her performance is the allure.

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

2019 Lincoln Continental Review

If you’re tired of the same old luxury options, the 2019 Lincoln Continental provides a refreshingly retro-cool alternative.
The 2019 Lincoln Continental is a big, luxurious American sedan at a time when Americans are hardly buying big, luxurious American sedans anymore. Regardless, it’s a throwback ride with plenty of character, great value, lots of power, and a classic nameplate. We give it 7.5 out of 10 overall.
Among European and Japanese rivals with established models – S-Class, 7 Series, LS – this Lincoln stands out for several reasons, chief among them its nameplate. With the Continental, Lincoln has one of the most storied American car names.
