This film is so compelling. Despite telling a story that everyone knows, including myself, Baumbach's writing and all the performances put us in the shoes of Nichole and Charlie. It is painful seeing their once-peaceful negotiation turn rogue, but... Read the full review »

A film which owes a debt to Winding Refn's Drive, Blue Ruin is a tense thriller which has a fantastic performance from Macon Blair at its centre. We watch as our protagonist steps back in time, opening wounds that have long been inflicted and ma... Read the full review »

Paul Thomas Anderson is a director who never patronises his audience. He always places his viewers on a pedastal as he believes they are deserving of being there. The same is said here. We are invited to watch two greedy, self-centred lovers cla... Read the full review »

The Safdies return with a sparkling cycle of failure. I found myself constantly questioning why I wanted to see Howard succeed. Was it his role as underdog? Or perhaps Sandler's pathos-centric performance? Either way, clearly Howard Ratner is a je... Read the full review »

Parasite (2019)

Parasite (2019)

10 / 10
Don't read a synopsis. Don't read a review. Just watch parasite as soon as possible. This film manages to bring together humour, tragedy, social commentary, family dynamics, international boundaries, class boundaries and so much more. Not once do... Read the full review »

Arctic (2019)

7 / 10
Simplicity is a virtue. Clearly, first time director Joe Penna understands this as he directs a film which only has three central characters, Overgard a young woman and the Arctic itself. The latter batters our protagonist who, selflessly, attempt... Read the full review »

The conflict we've been waiting for, this film is the most realistic of the three. The break down we see hits home, reminding everyone of a conflict in their lives. Julie Delpy shines in this film while Ethan Hawke successfully performs a heartbr... Read the full review »

Personally, I preferred this to the first installment. Seeing these two once young lovers fractured by age is both heartbreaking and relatable. Because of this gulf, we are treated to seeing them fall in love all over again. And in Paris! I mean,... Read the full review »

There isn't much to say about Dunkirk really. And that is a good thing. This is a film that has to be experienced. It is no coincidence that the dialogue is sparse in this film. Nolan clearly realises that a story like this doesn't need words; a... Read the full review »

This short film brought my girlfriend, who I watched it with, to tears of laughter. I, on the other hand, felt rather differently. This short film is a strange mixture of Lynch's comedic and sinister sides. These are usually mixed over the span... Read the full review »

Bait (2019)

Bait (2019)

9 / 10
What makes Bait an interesting piece is the relationship between its primary audience and it's message. This film was not shown in widespread cinemas. It is shown on streaming services such as MUBI or the BFI Player, the latter being where I watch... Read the full review »

The world's our two protagonists travel through are other worldly. At time, one cannot tell where the bodies begin and the earth ends, as limbs meld with the earth. The Homeric journey our characters go through is not long and weary but dreamlike... Read the full review »
