Review – ‘Doctor Sleep’

“The world is one big hospice with fresh air.” – Danny Torrance Stanley Kubrick‘s ‘The Shining‘ was released almost 40 years ago.

“It’s your eyes that have changed, not the film.” – Zulema Pedro Almodóvar‘s work has never been something I would watch a second time.

An entire country is at stake when secrets come out, that shouldn’t […]

“Finance will bring itself down.” – Saskia Stassen “The first sign that you’re going to have to leave your neighbourhood? It’s when vintage clothing shops show up.” Great quote to open your documentary with. What follows is more shocking that you’d ever thought possible. The housing crisis is a very serious problem.

Antenna Documentary Film Festival Review – ‘Hi, A.I.’
