    Maiden

    ★★★★

    Maiden was a great watch. Watching driven characters doing extraordinary things under difficult circumstance is easy pickings for any documentary maker, and Alex Holmes didn’t go far wrong.

    I was particularly pleased that the subject of the film, including Tracy Edwards herself were so open about their own character flaws. This is no puff piece.

    A truly inspiring group of people, and a story told so well that I may have had a tear or two in my eye as the credits rolled.

  • Eternals

    Eternals

    ★★★

    This isn’t nearly as bad as some of the cry babies claimed. It’s fine. Put it this way…fan boys have been way more forgiving of waaaay worse MCU films.

    The first half was way too long…mainly because there we so many characters. Once we got going though, it was good fun and there was a real sense that this was a base layer for future films.

    Anvil! The Story of Anvil

    A wonderful documentary following a metal band who were 'supposed' to be major success, but never achieved their destiny despite trying for more than 30 years.

    Anvil! is both heart wrenching and brilliant, and is a must-watch for every film fan. It's certainly one of my all-time favourite documentaries.

  • Sound It Out

    Sound It Out

    ★★★★

    Gentle documentary about an independent record store and their strange but loveable customers.

    Sound it Out made me feel nostalgic for a pastime that I never really took part in. Not many documentary directors have that the ability to do that, and Jeanie Finlay must be given massive credit for that.
