    Michel Hazanavicius’ latest film, Redoubtable, is an enjoyable biopic of the admired director Jean-Luc Godard that has been denounced by the great man himself. Which is nice.

    Mary and the Witch’s Flower Review

    Friday, May 4, 2018

    When it comes to anime films, I’m far from an expert. My knowledge pretty much starts and ends with Akira and Ghost in the Shell. But Mary and the Witch’s Flower is a film that makes the most of anime’s fantastical opportunities.

    Truth or Dare Review

    Friday, April 13, 2018

    I’m not ashamed to say that I like some of the Blumhouse fare. The Purge and Sinister were both pretty effective horror thrillers, and recent classics Get Out and Whiplash also bore the Blumhouse banner. With new release Truth or Dare, Blumhouse returns to its low-budget, supernatural roots.

    Tuesday, April 3, 2018

    Choose life. Anyone over a certain age – namely mine – knows where these two words come from, and what comes next. But the live incarnation of Trainspotting at The Vaults might just have a few surprises for even the illest sick boys and girls out there.

    Isle of Dogs Review

    Thursday, March 29, 2018

    I am a cat person. But it seems one of my favourite directors – the peerless Wes Anderson – might just be a dog person judging by his latest film, Isle of Dogs.

    Journeyman Review

    Monday, March 26, 2018

    As an actor, Paddy Considine has never shied away from misery. His powerful directorial debut Tyrannosaur was a grim tale of domestic abuse and cruelty, and Journeyman is at times similarly difficult to watch.
