    Nope

    ★★★½

    Nope is by no means perfect, but it’s just really nice to see some big-budget genre originality up there on the screen. It’s also a film I suspect will benefit from repeat viewing. 

    It doesn’t have that same narrative clarity as Peele’s (still) dazzling debut, but the fact we’re left to fill in many gaps about the central premise immediately positions it above the director’s previous offering, Us – a film which couldn’t sustain its revelatory punch.

    Kaluuya is his…

  • Julieta

    Julieta

    ★★★½

    No one does exquisite melodrama like Almodovar. I wouldn’t place this amongst his very best work, but it’s an engrossing, beautifully-performed piece, nonetheless.

    Loved Alberto Iglesias‘ Branford Marsalis-esque score.

    ★★★½

    A well-made and surprisingly engrossing law drama with a stunning central performance from Chris Evans.

    Another example of a decent film inexplicably missing out on a big screen release. Hope it finds an audience on video.

    ★★★

    Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience. Transcends small screen origins. Taut script, well-acted, dazzlingly-shot. Danny Dog is a revelation.
