Behind Again

I’m still reviewing Halloween movies here firmly in December and that’s because I’ve been busy and lazy, a wonderful combination. So I’m going to have to squish some of my To Do list into one post, which I kind of hate but what can you do? Here’s what I’ve been watching since the end of… Read More

The Wife

The Wife (2017) This movie showcases a powerhouse performance by Glenn Close, obviously. The woman is electrifying and handsome as fuck – and rightly so, pretty much the only thing you will care about. As the downtrodden wife of a Pulitzer prize-winning author, she gives the most emotive performance and it’s probably the only element… Read More

A Simple Favour

A Simple Favour (2018) *Minor spoilers* This film is by far my favourite lately, if not all year – and there have been a pile of really good films so far.

Searching

Searching (2018) This morning I learnt that there’s a name for films using this all-on-the-screen format and it’s “Screen life”.

Adrift

Adrift (2018) IMDB Synopsis A true story of survival, as a young couple’s chance encounter leads them first to love, and then on the adventure of a lifetime as they face one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history.

The Happy Prince

The Happy Prince (2018) IMDB Synopsis The untold story of the last days in the tragic times of Oscar Wilde, a person who observes his own failure with ironic distance and regards the difficulties that beset his life with detachment and humor.
