  • Spotlight

    Spotlight

    ★★★★½

    Although it’s a film centred around journalism & ‘taking on the system’ ,as opposed to be focused solely on the victims’ experiences, I think all the scenes featuring survivors are handled really well. Which is more rare than you’d think in film tbh.

  • Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness

    Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness

    ★★★★½

    This series is pretty nutty. There’s a lot of mad (and upsetting) things that happen but one of the most shocking things they show are those clips of Joe back in the day passionately saying how tigers belong in their natural habitat; that really hit.

  • The Virtues

    The Virtues

    ★★★★½

    Shane Meadows is just always so good at capturing complex and difficult subjects in such an intrinsic and authentic manner. Whatever he does always just feels so real !! Idk how he does it but he’s a genius 🤧

  • Uncut Gems

    Uncut Gems

    ★★★★½

    The safdie brothers saw the type of energy given off by the chaotic Instagram filters everyone used to use in 2012 and said that’s it, that it was we want to be, that is our aesthetic

  • Little Women

    Little Women

    ★★★★½

    Ms Greta Gerwig knows how to leave me sat crying in the cinema 😰

    Amy was by far my favourite character and definitely one of the girls that resonated with me the most. Florence Pugh stole the show by taking a character that could have easily been a hateable brat and turned her into a fleshed-out, complex and understandably flawed individual with good intentions. 

    I loved all the March sisters and thought they were all written with care and obvious…

  • Marriage Story

    Marriage Story

    ★★★★½

    Subtle, sad yet somewhat sweet. I love how there’s so many minute details that the film nods back to - it really threads the whole story together in such a lovely manner. Adam Driver is amazing.

  • The Irishman

    The Irishman

    ★★★★½

    Definitely one of Scorsese’s most vulnerable films. There’s a lot of humour in this film (to me, at least) Al Pacino is hilarious as the eccentric, fastidious but lovable Jimmy Hoffa. However, the last hour or so hits like a ton of bricks. Gangster types almost always have a downfall, but seeing a character in such slow, isolated decay is really heartbreaking. Frank’s inability to process things until it’s too late (or if at all) really leaves you feeling like you have a knot in your stomach. Also, the last shot/few lines of dialogue are just crushing.
