    Parasite

    ★★★★½

    94/100

    Parasite’ is an extremely well made film. There are many reasons for its excellence. Its plot is intricate. Its acting is humanised. Its cinematography is crisp. Yet its greatest success which raises the overall quality of the picture is undoubtedly its subtlety. Bong Joon-ho’s 2019 thriller deals with issues of class divides, greed and material jealously all with a subtle perspective and narrative, never allowing the themes to feel forced but instead cleverly left there for the audience to…

    The Place Beyond the Pines

    ★★★★½

    90/100

    The Place Beyond The Pines’ is a film that is split into three acts. The first of which is amazing in short.

This story isn’t about Parker but instead Miles Morales. It’s a heartwarming and exciting story which is both extremely meta and hilarious in equal amounts. The humour is more self…

    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★

    87/100

    Spike Lee’s ‘BlacKkKlansman’ tells the remarkable true story of an African American police officer who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan. The story of course comes with severity as with the topic that is to be expected but I sure wasn’t expecting to laugh as much as I did. A fun film which points and provokes at the pure ridiculousness and absurdity of American society both back then and today in redheads to racism, white supremacy and racial intolerance. Lee…
