Lubna Azabal Interview

Adapted from Wajdi Mouawad’s acclaimed play Scorched, and directed by the visionary Denis Villeneuve, Incendies is a gripping, emotive exploration of the mysteries that lie in our family roots.

Actress Lubna Azabal, who assumed the challenging role of Nawal Marwan in Incendies, took time out of her busy schedule to join Soundbite Culture for a chat.

Milk Maid: Yucca Review

I’ve listened to this album several times now and I like it.

There isn’t a lot more I can say. Most reviewers will make some comparison between this and potential influences the band might have, “Milk Maid draw strong parallels between themselves and the Mancunian explosion bands of the noughties”.

Unknown DVD Review

The unknown usually inspires great curiosity in me.

Alas, this isn’t something that could be said of the film by the same name.

Unknown opens with american scientist, Dr Martin Harris, arriving at Berlin airport with his wife ahead of a bio technology conference he’s scheduled to give a presentation at.

Holy Rollers Review

Tree Of Life Review

Daze of heaven.

This could be a loose theme of maverick director Terrence Malick’s latest opus, Tree Of Life, but the essence of what he’s attempting to communicate is lost on me.
