  • Annihilation



    Single White Female, seeks new beginning. 

    I have many unanswered questions at the end of this, not the least being: how did the US military come to use branded MacPac tents on their missions?

    A shoo in for “Best use of lens flare in a motion picture” in the next awards season, surely?

    There are other reasons to be sad. It’s not all war.

  • Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police

    Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police


    The rise and demise of The Police as told through the lense of Andy Summers, the guitarist and probably lesser known of the three band members. 

    This is the sort of documentary that I could watch all day and all night and into the early hours of the morning and contemplate rewatching the next day.

    The story of his relationship with his wife and family, which is woven through, is heartbreaking. 

    I'd like to see more of his photography. What an awesome record and memory. I imagine him getting lost in that archive for days.

    96 mins is a long time to feel as lost as I found myself watching this.

    This film sounds amazing. Shut your eyes.
