Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Review

Quentin Tarantino is one of my favourite filmmakers. I’ve loved his work ever since I saw Pulp Fiction for the first time when I was 15, and nowadays, a QT film is an event in and of itself, as the world celebrates the outspoken auteur of Hollywood. Now on his ninth (and supposedly penultimate) film,…

Pain and Glory Review

I do not see many foreign language films, in fact, this is the first time I’ve reviewed a foreign language film. The main reason why I do not see many is because of the complex nature of language in itself, I don’t think a lot of the foibles of language can be conveyed through subtitles,…

The Art of Racing in the Rain

I have long held an admiration for Vincent Van Gogh. I am not much of an art lover, but I find his work indescribably beautiful, I also find his deeply troubled life intriguing and moving. For a man so troubled he left behind a vast legacy in such a short life, and his life has…

Wild Rose Review

I have a soft spot for the small working-class British narrative.

My favourite of this kind of film is Fish Tank, a film I studied during…

Eighth Grade Review

I’m going to guess that if you’re reading this, you’ve gone through puberty at some point. If you haven’t then I’m very impressed at your burgeoning interest in film, but get out now so you don’t become as cynical as me. Joking aside, puberty is a tough time for us all; our hormones are in…
