    “You're familiar with the phrase "man's reach exceeds his grasp"? It's a lie: man's grasp exceeds his nerve.” 🎩

    What might audiences find when peeking behind the curtain on this vaudeville act? A tense period piece, maybe a transcontinental thriller or perhaps a meditation on movie magic? This dense turn-of-the-century tale is all of those and more, proving Christopher Nolan to be a Hollywood heavy-hitter…

    “A word with me? How about a word for me? Or better yet, how about a word for you? Let's see, a word for Tyrone Capulet. Boofball. D**kbag. Peon. Freak. C**ksucker. S**thead, ratcatcher, geek. Loser, anus, fruitcake, lunk, fiddlef**ker, dweeb, feeb. C**t. Assf**k; ah, that one's close to the mark. How 'bout guinea, schmuck, or p**syfart?” 👩‍❤️‍👨

    Someone tell Baz Luhrmann to step aside, the Troma team are careening through Shakespeare in the 1990s, and with no-holds Bard! This transgressive…

    "Who stole the child's dreams? Krank, in his evil schemes. But the happy tale had a sting in its tail. The genius has a fit of pique, hear the genius shriek, the "genius" is up a creek." 👁️

    Bursting at the seams with sheer style, imagination and invention, this French-German-Spanish sci-fantasy was championed by the equally-weird Terry Gilliam upon its original release in 1995. The second cinematic team-up for Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet, and with a much bigger budget,…

    "We are from different worlds, you and me, Andrew. In mine, there was no time for bright fancies and happy inventions, no stopping for tea. The only game we played was to survive, or go to the wall. If you didn't win, you just didn't finish. Loser, lose all. You probably don't understand that." ♟

    Take a pair of knighted celluloid icons whose accents embody the term ‘class conflict’, hand them a scintillating script adapted by a playwright who penned…

    “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…

    “It'll be just like in the movies. Pretending to be somebody else.” 👩🏼‍🤝‍👩🏻

    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…
