    Here Even So

    ★★

    Elements of Ghost - the lead is plagued by grief, but unfortunately this short is plagued by poor camera work. Conceptually good and could work with some critical faculties parked...

  • Successful Alcoholics

    Successful Alcoholics

    ★★★

    Fear and Loathing in Denver...without the drugs. Lizzy Caplan and TJ Miller take their destructive alcoholic relationship on the road.

    "Babe, I don't know how you're going to go back out there without a shirt!"

    The Kings of Summer

    ★★★

    Stand By Me aged up with a with larger slice of escapism. Sweet coming-of-age film that delivers nostalgia, humour and angst-ridden adolescence. However, there was probably one musical montage too many - a jarring rap number seemed out place.

  • Contagion

    Contagion

    ★★★★

    It has suddenly all become so real. Yes, Contagion's virus is a lot more fast acting and twenty times deadlier than Covid-19...BUT...the means of transmission, the language of communication and the societal effect are chillingly familiar. There is even a cameo for 'social distancing'!
