Kong: Skull Island – Review

Kong: Skull Island drops viewers straight into a world at once familiar and different to that of “creature from another feature” Godzilla. The pseudoscience remains, alongside a menagerie of fantastic...
Silence Scorsese

Silence – Review

The sound of Silence is astonishing. Insects, waves, weather, chanting, groaning and, yes, prolonged silence - these elements combine into a sensory experience at once rich and austere. The clash of languages...
