Saint Frances (2019)

I’ve written before about how the Sundance Film Festival is something of an automatic seal of approval for me and my personal taste, and the same can pretty much be said for SXSW Film Festival as well. With previous faves like Booksmart, Atomic Blonde and Short Term 12 all making their mark at SXSW, I’m…

Clemency (2019)

Just the one review from me this week, I’m in the middle of recovering from laser eye surgery! Before I went under the knife (so to speak!), I managed to catch Clemency, a film that will forever be remembered by myself as the last motion picture I ever had to watch with the help of…

Proxima (2019)

It’s not a genre that I necessarily seek out, but there is something about the world of the ‘space movie’ that always manages to tempt me back in for one reason or another. I wouldn’t proclaim to be a sci-fi expert by any means, but some of my most memorable cinema experiences over the last…

Fanny Lye Deliver’d (2019)

If you know me, then you will know that my two biggest interests at school were English and History. Translating that into my passion for film, it’s fair to say that I’m a bit of a sucker for any kind of historical, period piece that gives audiences something a little bit different than what they…

A Rainy Day In New York (2019)

2020 is really going out of its way to be one of the craziest years in history. Seismic changes are happening in various corners of the globe, many for the better, all whilst we battle a life changing viral pandemic. Shit’s wild, right? I thought why not add more mayhem to the mix by, perhaps…

How To Build A Girl (2019)

After scraping around for what to watch for the last few weeks, it seems as though we’ve reached a stage in this cinema lockdown where the big boys are coming to the quarantine party. My next three reviews look set to be for high profile movies that I was always going to be watching in…

The Assistant (2019)

Hello again, hope everyone out there is still healthy and hasn’t ‘completed’ Netflix yet. It’s coming up to two months now since I saw a film in the cinema, probably the longest theatre-less stretch since childhood! I am happy, however, that there seems to be a regular and steady flow of home releases to enjoy…

Les Misérables (2019)

Fun fact; Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables was one of the first films I ever covered on this blog way back when I was fresher faced, less cynical, and judging by the content of the review itself, significantly less adept at writing! With those memories and a quick jolt “oh fuck, I’m thirty” running through the…

Cuck (2019)

As the lockdown continues, each week’s new releases are getting increasingly thinner on the ground. But, with very few things happening in everyday life to remind what day it is, I’ve started to turn to this blog as a means of tracking time! One new review equals one new week in our current dystopia, and…

Who You Think I Am (2019)

With most cinematic activity reduced to a minimum for the last few weeks and for the foreseeable future, one actress seems to have bucked that trend and unintentionally become the icon of my isolation; Juliette Binoche! With The Truth marking my first review of a VOD release back at the end of March, Binoche is…
