Birds Of Passage (2018)

I’m lucky enough to have a Curzon as my local multiplex cinema, and that means that in the same week that I see a big commercial crowd pleaser like Pokémon Detective Pikachu, I can then also hope across the hallway to see something like Birds Of Passage. Diversity and versatility is the thing that I…

High Life (2018)

From Aliens to The Martian to Gravity and beyond, there is something about the concept of survival and existence in space that really floats my boat when it comes to cinema.

Vox Lux (2018)

It’s fair to say that the last six or so months has well and truly spoilt us when it comes to musical based, female centric rise and fall type film narratives. We got something relatively traditional in the form of the fourth version of A Star Is Born, something more rustic and raw in the…

I might be turning thirty at the end of this year, but one thing that I don’t think will ever change is the love that I have for coming-of-age stories. Whether in TV, film or literature, there is something about seeing those tumultuous, turbulent stages of a person’s life unfold that always manages to capture…
