SON OF SAUL Stare

Son Of Saul – LFF Review

Searing and visceral, Son of Saul adopts an unusual long-take, shallow-focus shooting style to great effect as it powerfully offers a new approach to films concerning the horrors of the Holocaust. In...
TANGERINE Still Two Girls In Sunset

Tangerine – LFF Review

Likely the first thing you learnt about Tangerine was that it was filmed entirely on an iPhone - however this fresh and vibrant drama offers far more than simply a gimmick. Thanks to its camera,...

CENSORED VOICES Men On Tanks

Censored Voices – LFF Review

Like Joshua Oppenheimer's astounding The Look of Silence, Censored Voices turns the lens of history onto the victors of a conflict they perceive as a righteous one - however not quite to the same level of...
