Movie Review: Locked Down

Movie Review: Locked Down

Modern mishaps and major events give way for a barrage of content that will pick apart, collate and create moments of interest in truly distressing times. So close to the event it wishes to depict, Locked Down hasn’t even the good grace to wait for the end of this horrid affair. A drought of quality writing may […]

TV Review: Pretend It’s A City

TV Review: Pretend It’s A City

Fran Lebowitz, author and public speaker, has a lot on her mind. Pretend It’s A City offers a brief series of musings from the brilliantly cynical brain of this powerful public speaker. Documented by the great Martin Scorsese in his second collation of Lebowitz’s work, this Netflix original is a rare, inspired surprise. Taking the interview format on the road, […]

Movie Review: Pieces of a Woman

Movie Review: Pieces of a Woman

Further cementing my fear of coming anywhere close to fatherhood, Pieces of a Woman presents a series of tense, heart-breaking moments almost immediately. It picks up, for lack of a better word, the pieces of a family who find themselves shot down by various tragedies. Most prominent is the heartbreak of childbirth, the beauty is nowhere to […]

Movie Review: The Midnight Sky

Movie Review: The Midnight Sky

  George Clooney, somehow, has convinced producers and companies that he can direct. They bend on a whim to the slightest bit of creativity that lingers at his fingertips, and often leap on a product that feels muddled, unfinished and devoid of quality. Suburbicon was a mismatch, a bold endeavour that not even writing from […]

Stand-Up Review: James Acaster – Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999

Stand-Up Review: James Acaster – Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999

  Changing a persona is a hard task to accomplish. Stand-up comedy and panel shows are full of personas, most of them safe attempts at projecting some semblance of comedy onto paying audiences. They work, they roll out the same topical anecdotes and trivial stories that rely on some form of brief, fluttering comedy. Expanded […]

Movie Review: The Nest

Movie Review: The Nest

  Ambition and prosperity don’t always meet – and The Nest wishes to show that from the outset. The latest film from director Sean Durkin sees him pull out all the stops in showing a relatively placid family life, one that is thrown into misery and distress by a sudden move to Britain. Here, the […]

Movie Review: Freaky

Movie Review: Freaky

Horror is an ever-changing genre. Those that don’t adapt to the stormy tides of slashers, arthouse pieces and B-Movie love letters will rightfully drown in a sea of oversaturation. I assume that’ll happen to Freaky and its director, Christopher Landon. On the warpath of consistent mediocrity, his latest feature teams Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton together for […]
