    Portrait of a Lady on Fire


    My thoughts around Céline Sciamma's masterpiece are infinity personal. Capturing nostalgia, regret and acceptance so well that heartache carries through it's final act into the days that follow.

    Beauty, love and the weakness of the human spirit.

    I wasted so much time

    Fascinating to see one of the world's best in action over lockdown. Hope the BBC continues to fund Glazer's visions

    Only Yesterday


    Beautifully animated as it is reflective. How the smallest moments from our childhood can shape the adults we become.

    Ad Astra


    How do you deal with loss without certitude? Delaying that inevitable grief. To regress without knowing the forfeit paid by those around you.

    James Gray's excellent Ad Astra captures this mindset and forces you to confront those demons. Totally alone, a million miles away from home.
