    Snowden Review

    Wednesday, December 7, 2016

    Oliver Stone knows this world is full of fools like me, which is why he’s turned Edward Snowden’s life into a film with famous faces in it and everything. Having watched Snowden, I feel even more foolish than before.

    Bleed For This Review

    Monday, November 28, 2016

    Allied Review

    Wednesday, November 23, 2016

    What do you do when the made up story behind a film becomes bigger than the film itself? Hope said movie is good enough to consign such scurrilous media speculation to the past – but I’m not sure Brad Pitt’s new film Allied pulls this off.

    Paterson Review

    Monday, November 14, 2016

    La La Land Review

    Friday, November 11, 2016

    A United Kingdom Review

    Wednesday, November 9, 2016

    A United Kingdom. That’s the name of director Amma Asante’s latest film that opened last month’s London film festival. It’s also the one thing this country ain’t right now.

    Nocturnal Animals Review

    Monday, October 31, 2016

    Doctor Strange Review

    Tuesday, October 25, 2016

    Doctor Strange, or how marvel stopped worrying and learned to love cod spirituality was definitely not considered as a name for this new superhero yarn. But it is on the money.
