    Why do I love whodunnits?

    Oh, let me count the ways…

    1. I love them because of Agatha Christie. She created Hercule Poirot & Miss Marple, and the rest is history.

    2. I love them because of my mother, who would watch re-runs of Murder She Wrote every Sunday afternoon when I was a child, which subconsciously trickled down to my own viewing habits years later. I’m so thankful for her. She is my Jessica Fletcher; intuitive, warm and lovely to…

    Chungking Express

    ★★★★

    "I don't think people are meant to be by themselves. That's why if you actually find someone you care about, It's important to let go of the little things. Even if you can't let go all the way.

    I know this because last week, I had the privilege of working the premiere for The Crypt of Tears, with…

    Faces Places

    ★★★★

    "I don't see you very well, but I see you."

    A friendship blossomed from images and people, projecting faces onto places as re-established landmarks celebrating the art of just being you. Jean-Luc Godard is a dirty rat.

    Bong Joon-ho… WHAT ON EARTH DID YOU PUT ME THROUGH!?

    This is the Palme d’Or winning director at his most confident – which seems silly to say when all his films exhibit a stark disinterest for convention in all facets of storytelling. His tonal assurance and command behind the camera are exhilarating to watch unfold; the narrative spirals into capitalistic calamity, elevating its unsubtle themes by making you feel everything humanely possible. And you truly do – my theatre was…
