The Report (2019)

I don’t know about you, but I have a real soft spot for political scandal and corruption films. They hold a strange but strong place in my heart for being the kinds of movies that I watch once and never again, usually because they feature uncomfortable home truths that provide a lot of gripping drama,…

The Good Liar (2019)

When it comes to film genres that always seem to have an appetite inducing effect on general audiences, the book adaptation crime thriller is right up there at the top of the tree. We love a bit of drama, we love a crime or two and we certainly love a twist, and with a mountain…

The Aeronauts (2019)

The Last Black Man In San Francisco (2019)

Something I have come to realise in my film watching experience is that if a film does well at Sundance, then it tends to do well with my personally as well. Having picked up both Best Director and a Special Jury Award at this year’s festival, it’s fair to say that The Last Black Man…
