    “Remember: solidarity or s**t.” 🍮

    A literal deep dive into the depravity and desperation of the human psyche, viewers must be warned before descending on this grim 94 minute ride that jolts and disgusts, particularly in its uncompromising first act that eschews restraint for gross, surreal imagery in gripping fashion. Having survived the first few levels alongside the creepy Zorion Eguileor, auditioning to be a Spanish…

    “That's my job, that's what I do, I'd like to think if you're seeing me you're having the worst day of your life.” 📹

    Cut from the same sociopathic cloth as Travis Bickle and Patrick Bateman in this wickedly entertaining neo-noir, Jake Gyllenhaal’s chilling-yet-charming turn as the supremely narcissistic Lou Bloom oozes dread the second he appears on screen, but compels and dares us to sympathise with a hustle culture anti-hero gone wrong, a true movie monster for the 21st…

    Slip into a lucid trip on this winding, terrifying road high in the Hollywood hills, and leave your grip on reality behind for a magnificent, exasperating 146 minutes that defies conventional explanation, emanating from the mind-bending subconscious of American surrealist and postmodernist polymath, David Lynch. Transforming from a dark, mysterious TV pilot…

    “You know what kind of plan never fails? No plan. No plan at all. You know why? Because life cannot be planned. Look around you. Did you think these people made a plan to sleep in the sports hall with you? But here we are now, sleeping together on the floor. So, there's no need for a plan. You can't go wrong with no plans.

    “Come on! KG. This is no different than that. This is me. All right? I'm not a f**kin' athlete, this is *my* f**kin' way. This is how *I* win. All right?” 💎

    Equal parts exhausting and electrifying, you won’t need a cup of coffee before strapping in for this heart-palpating New York City thriller. Building on bricks laid by their raw, ugly work in 2017’s Good Time, the Safdie Brothers’ uncompromising vision for anxiety-inducing cinema is fully realised thanks to…
