Lady Bird review; A chorus for youth

With a singular vision to portray her own experiences in her youth, Greta Gerwig has spoken for us all. Greta Gerwig’s heartfelt, funny and deeply resonant film is so great and so full of life and love for the characters she portrays. While Lady Bird may contain several characters archtypes and isn’t necessarily as ground-breaking…

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.

David Lowery’s evocative A Ghost Story is a first look into the melancholic and soul-defining existence of the after-life.

Graduation is a rare film because it nails everything from the opening to the end, from it’s morally abstruse┬ásocial commentary to the way in which it captures the raw essence of each scene and makes them all mean something.
