Bombshell – Review

“Blood coming out of her… wherever” was, regrettably, an instantly recognisable moment from Trump’s presidential campaign. Megyn Kelly, the Fox anchor he was describing, takes centre stage in...
1917 Movie Edit

1917 – Review

1917’s spirit is about showing strength in the face of adversity – but how that message is delivered removes any triteness. The film puts a personal face, in two young lance corporals, to warfare. 1917...
Little Women 1

Little Women – Review

Walking out of Little Women, it's hard to think that a more perfect adaptation of an already perfect novel exists. Sense and Sensibility (1995) and The Age of Innocence (1993) perhaps come close, but neither...
Cats

Lff Judy And Punch

Judy & Punch – LFF 2019 Review

The most striking element of Mirrah Foulkes’ feminist reimaging of the quintessential, quaint British seaside entertainment – this time focusing on the humans behind the puppets – is its unevenness of...
Western Stars (Warner Bros.)

Western Stars – LFF 2019 Review

Bruce Springsteen is a cowboy now. Please, nobody tell him any different. He seems happy. In the clips cut into Western Stars’ concert footage, the Boss tramps through the American desert in his dustiest...
