Get Out is good but not great; Microaggression in America

Get Out’s been stealing the hearts and minds of audiences all across the board from casual moviegoers to esteemed critics. It’s been hailed as groundbreaking, shocking and a great satire. Many think it’s a deep and provocative representation of prevailing systemic racism in America today. (I would have voted for Obama for a third time!)….

The Killing Of A Sacred Deer review; A metaphor without a beating heart

The Killing Of A Sacred Deer is Yorgos Lanthimos’ new film after Dogtooth and The Lobster and follows the director’s bizarre and uncompromising approach to film. Drawing from Euriphides’ fable,Ā Iphigenia at Aulis, The Killing Of A Sacred Deer is a modern take on ideas of fated tragedy, familial responsibility, human error and the inherent violence…

Blade Runner 2049 review; Neon-noir

Blade Runner 2049 is an exceptionally crafted visual treat. Building upon the world that the original Blade Runner had already created, we see Villeneuve explore interesting ways that blend cutting-edge cool with very tangible technological realities already present in our present world i.e holograms. Environmentally, Blade Runner 2049 envisions a world more polarized than today;…

Cannes 2017 lineup preview; Damn I wished I was there!

This year’s Cannes lineup is looking like it’s going to be a special one. Cannes has always been the artistic one compared to the other awards but they usually still feature a big name or two from Hollywood. This year’s selection finally embraces the Cannes uniqueness and verve as it’s jam packed full of quiet…

Graduation; A perfect film

Graduation is a rare film because it nails everything from the opening to the end, from it’s morally abstruseĀ social commentary to the way in which it captures the raw essence of each scene and makes them all mean something. There are few films that you come across in your life that hit you speechless and…

People; A searing snapshot of reality

I was pleasantly surprised that the people behind the independent indie filmĀ People ;oĀ sent me a screener to the film before it’s Itunes release date of 1st May. And I’m glad that it was a really good film so it was enjoyable both watching and writing a review about it. Check out my review below and…
