The Dissident

The Dissident: Film Review

I was gripped by the Jamal Khashoggi case when the Saudi journalist disappeared after going inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October 2018 and even though I followed the headlines closely, I learned so much more from watching The Dissident, a shocking, eye-opening documentary.

I Care a Lot

I Care a Lot: Film Review

I knew I Care a Lot would be very much my cup of tea when I found out Rosamund Pike would be playing a character as deliciously dark and wicked as Amy Dunne in Gone Girl and I was not wrong – this is my favourite new release of 2021 so far.

To Olivia

To Olivia: Film Review

I was a massive fan of Roald Dahl’s children’s books – particularly Matilda and The Twits – growing up and have enjoyed many adaptations of his work, but I knew nothing about his personal life, so I learned a lot from the new biographical drama To Olivia.

School's Out Forever

School’s Out Forever: Film Review

Another day, another movie featuring a pandemic! This time we have the gory British thriller School’s Out Forever, which focuses on a bunch of immune people trying to survive inside a private school.

Music

Music: Film Review

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about Sia’s directorial debut Music already thanks to the controversy over her casting Maddie Ziegler as an autistic teen. When the backlash first began late last year, Sia insisted people waited to see the movie before judging it and now I’ve done just that.

Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar

Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar: Film Review

I love Kristen Wiig and I was so excited to see her leading a movie with her Bridesmaids co-writer Annie Mumolo for the first time. I had the highest hopes for their latest co-writing project, Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar, given how much I loved their work on Bridesmaids, but I’m afraid to report that it’s bad and really not funny.

PVT Chat

PVT Chat: Film Review

Julia Fox stars as an online dominatrix who becomes the victim of an obsessive customer in Ben Hozie’s annoyingly titled PVT Chat.

Dead Pigs

Dead Pigs: Film Review

Cathy Yan’s debut feature Dead Pigs received critical acclaim and caught the attention of Margot Robbie when it debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in 2018 and landed her a blockbuster directing gig in the form of 2020’s Birds of Prey – but then it never got released. Finally, after three years, Dead Pigs is coming out.

News of the World

News of the World: Netflix Film Review

I love Tom Hanks – who doesn’t?! – so I happily tuned into News of the World, even though Westerns aren’t my favourite genre, and was rewarded by a heartwarming central relationship and an emotionally affecting ending.
