The Day Shall Come Review

It is my opinion that the principal aim of a film should be to entertain the viewer; however, it is also the job of a film, occasionally, to educate. To me, Film is at its best when it’s holding a mirror up to society and showing us its darkest recesses. That’s why films like Taxi…

Billy Connolly – The Sex Life of Bandages Review

To me, Billy Connolly is the greatest stand-up comedian to ever live. His 1985 An Audience With performance is the Citizen Kane of stand-up, and his legacy is secured as the best. Unfortunately, in the past few years he has encountered numerous health problems, he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and prostrate cancer in the…

Hustlers Review

Blinded By the Light Review

I’ve never really listened to Bruce Springsteen. His music reminds me of the kind of chest-beating, over-patriotic Americana that really grinds on my nerves. But after watching this and hearing more of his songs than I’d previously heard, I realise that I may have presumed too much about Mr Springsteen. This is a film from…
