I Lost My Body review; The best animated film of 2019.

I Lost My Body is one of this year’s more profound films. Its creative use of animation brilliantly expounds on surprisingly deep and abstract themes of fate, choice and personal agency. The main narrative unfolds alongside the metaphysical journey of the ‘moving hand’, combining the brutal corporeal realities of life with a whimsical sense of…

Isle Of Dogs; Adorable animation and dogged satire.

Wes Anderson’s Isle Of Dogs comes right off the heels of the colourful noir of Grand Budapest Hotel, the frenzied adolescence in Moonrise Kingdom and the surprising realism in the wacky Fantastic Mr.Fox. Isle Of Dogs mixes multiple levels of satire to create social commentary on the festering of fear and hatred, authoritarianism, segregation and…

Tower; A genre-blending and life-affirming documentary

Tower is an exceptional documentary piece about tragic events that happened on one inconspicuous afternoon in 1966. It blends both animation and real-life footage in a somewhat surprisingly seamless fashion. The line-artopia style disarms us a little but by the time we get used to it, the point is clear- In a recount of devastating…

April and the extraordinary world review

April and the extraordinary world is an enchanting mixed bag of 1890’s European vignettes and scientific-industrial fantasies, all of which enfleshed in a loving and heartwarming tale.

Zootopia: Welcome to the urban jungle

Zootopia’s poster somehow foreshadowed a frightening possibility that it could follow in the footsteps of Madagascar, which would render it a failure no doubt. There were some serious pre-conceived notions and worries I had before entering the cinema, some of it as a result of my distaste towards really bad animal animated films and utterly…

Fantastic Mr.Fox (2009) review; Foxy fun

One day, I was browsing around for a nice animated film to lift my spirits. It wasn’t a day for serious stuff, oh no, I had specifically wanted to find something light-hearted, wacky and hopefully brazen with its own unique style. I don’t believe that movies are necessarily confined by a certain mold; So in…
