  • Netflix Review – ‘Rebecca’

    October 22, 2020 by

    Ben Wheatley is an interesting director to say the least. His work, stylistically strong, spans broad genres and is often met with well-deserved critical acclaim. They aren’t usually targeted at a broader audience so it was surprising to find out his next project was Rebecca, a novel already famously adapted by Alfred Hitchcock (his first… Read more

  • Review – ‘Honest Thief’

    October 21, 2020 by

    Back in 2008 a gravelly voiced Neeson delivered that all too famous ‘I have a particular set of skills’ line that suddenly bombarded him to an unlikely action star status. Since then he’s had a steady stream of sequels and similar tough guy fare ranging from decent to entertaining. Honest Thief is the newest addition… Read more

    Kate Hackett, who most recently won an Emmy for her editing work on the Netflix documentary series ‘Cheers‘, has made a short film that centers around the 17-year old titular character, Oleander. The sex-positive YouTuber’s parents make her attend a local abstinence program, called “The Institute of Transformation”, or as Oleander (Emily Robinson – ‘Eighth… Read more

  • Netflix Review – BLACKPINK: Light Up The Sky

    October 14, 2020 by

    When BLACKPINK released their music video for the single BOOMBAYAH back in 2017, I was blown away by the bright eye-popping visuals, professional choreography and the unique catchy sound this wild bunch had created with their label, YG Entertainment. After doing some research, I found out they had established themselves one year prior with their… Read more

  • Review – ‘La Nuit des Rois’

    October 13, 2020 by

    The MACA prison is a world with its own codes and laws. The first law is that the Dangôro, the supreme master, rules the prisoners. When the Dangôro falls ill and can no longer govern, he must take his own life. A young man is sent to the MACA prison in the middle of the… Read more

  • Hulu Review – ‘Bad Hair’

    October 12, 2020 by

    Bad Hair is a hair-raising horror film, made in true 80s style by the director of ‘Dear White People‘, Justin Simien. He exposes the downright stupidity of the ways people feel the constant need to fit in out of fear of being judged by their peers, while cleverly exposing today’s political climate and other topical… Read more

  • FIFF2020 Review – ‘Jumbo’

    October 11, 2020 by

    My love for neon lights doesn’t go as far as Jeanne’s love for Jumbo, a theme park ride she feels connected to on a romantic level, but as far as coming out stories go, this has to be one of the most unique ones. Jumbo tells the story of Jeanne (Noémie Merlant – ‘Portrait of… Read more

  • FIFF2020 Review – ‘Un Triomphe’

    October 9, 2020 by

    In Emmanuel Courcol‘s sophomore feature, the French director tells the story of an actor past his prime, who’s asked to give drama lessons to prisoners, but sees potential to go bigger and bolder and attempts to stage “Waiting for Godot.” Based on a true event, ‘The Big Hit‘ (aka ‘Un Triomphe‘) is set for a… Read more

    October 7, 2020 by

    Canadian director Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette‘s 90s coming of age drama ‘Goddess of the Fireflies‘ (aka ‘La Déesse des mouches à feu‘), is set against the backdrop of a rural Québec town and grunge music’s rise. 16 year old Catherine and her friends are loitering between shacks and mall parking lots, partying and learning about life and… Read more

  • FIFF2020 Review – ‘Une Vie Démente’

    October 6, 2020 by

    Belgian directors Ann Sirot and Raphaël Balboni‘s first feature length film, ‘Madly In Life‘ (aka ‘Une Vie Démente‘) has a way of blending genres with their surroundings, sometimes letting actions and exteriors speak louder than words. Their tragicomedy makes a worst case scenario feel much lighter where these types of subjects usually get turned into… Read more
