    Finding Your Feet

    ★★★

    Worth shedding a few tears over with its nostalgic and honest exploration of transitional phases in the latter stages of life, Finding Your Feet presents an inferred history between two sisters in a present day context, feeling unashamed and somewhat proud to unpack the reality behind social detachment in a still divided world. Held up by notable lead performances from Imelda Staunton and Celia Imrie, the movie does exactly what it says on the tin with heaps of charm and an added teaspoon of sass, acknowledging its inherent lack of originality with scenes of coordinated fun at the expense of true innovation.

  • The Snowman

    The Snowman

    Beautiful in its uniting of audiences young and old, whose shared awareness of the foul stench of excrement brings them closer together in this tragic moment for modern cinema, The Snowman establishes itself as the worst of the worst, proving incompetent, infuriating, and tragically unfunny as a genuine marker of failure in a time of meme-centric potential. Easier to weep at than to mock, the film is as pathetically assembled as the biro drawings scribbled haphazardly by its pitiful villain whose sketches are used as crucial reference in a scene where Fassbender checks that the image does indeed match reality.

    Interstellar

    ★★★★★

    A multidimensional masterwork of epic proportions, crossing the boundaries of space and time with a universal tale of discovery during moments of complete uncertainty. Strong-minded but tender in its depiction of solitude, time travel, and the power unconditional love, Interstellar is a cinematic page-turner and it’s assembled with religious ambition by Christopher Nolan whose transcendent take on Sci-Fi opens the door to a discussion worth having about the importance of family during times of crisis.

  • Nocturnal Animals

    Nocturnal Animals

    ★★★★

    Revenge is a dish best served in hardback and Nocturnal Animals couldn’t be more audacious in its exploration of literary malevolence. In a time where subtweeting and unfriending have become the standard way to send a message about a failed relationship, a movie that dedicates an entire novel to the person who ruined an author’s life feels like a pretty contemptuous one.
