The Mauritanian (2021)

It’s not something that I have had the chance to really talk about in the time I’ve been writing this blog, but I absolutely, unequivocally, love Jodie Foster. From Bugsy Malone to Taxi Driver to The Silence Of The Lambs and more, Foster has always been one of my favourites, and with more of her…

Minari (2020)

Those who are invested in film discourse online will be able to tell you about the interesting discussions that Minari has produced this awards season. Despite being an American made movie, about a very American experience, the picture was designated to the Best Foreign Language Film category at the Golden Globes on the account of…

The United States vs. Billie Holiday (2021)

When it comes to American jazz and swing music, there are few greater icons than Billie Holiday. A magnetic, generational talent whose personal vices and struggles only served to further her legend, Holiday has been the subject of critically acclaimed works before, most notably Lady Sings The Blues starring Diana Ross in 1972. Most of…

I Care A Lot (2020)

I can’t be the only person who thinks that Rosamund Pike is one of the most underrated actresses of her generation. It’s been seven years since she made herself a real household name (despite being around since the early 2000s) in Gone Girl, but for me much of her most interesting work has come in…

Nomadland (2020)

When it comes to long term critical acclaim, there are very few actresses in the last two decades who have built as strong a portfolio as Frances McDormand. From her work with the Coen brothers like Burn After Reading and Moonrise Kingdom to her Oscar winning turn in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, McDormand truly…

Barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar (2021)

Any Oh! That Film Blog reader will know that I love me some Oscars and Golden Globes, but at the same time it’s fair to say that during this particular time of the cinematic year, things can start to get a little but serious and sombre in the hopes of attracting dramatic hype. As in…

Judas And The Black Messiah (2021)

With the recent Golden Globe and SAG nominations being officially revealed, it’s fair to say that we are truly in the swing of awards season 2021. Whilst Shaka King’s Judas And The Black Messiah might not have garnered the sweeping amount of nominations that some had expected so far, its release still felt very much…

Malcolm & Marie (2021)

At this point in the seemingly never ending COVID-19 pandemic, it’s fair to say that we’re all sick of talking about it, but in this particular instance, the circumstances surrounding Sam Levinson’s Malcolm & Marie are worth a mention. In what is sure to become great future film trivia, this project is the first Hollywood…

The Little Things (2021)

We’re at that time of year in the UK right now where the rain falls pretty much every day and the sun is nowhere to be seen after 4PM. I don’t know about you, but those kinds of conditions always draw me towards the darker side of cinema. Now isn’t the time for a fluffy…

The Dig (2021)

With January almost over and any remnants of hungover festive spirit will and truly gone, it is always around this time of the year that I am more susceptible to the charms of a good old fashioned British period drama. It just so happens that Netflix were more than happy to scratch that particular itch…
