REVIEW: Rebecca (2020)

While remakes and reboots are – perhaps deservedly so – controversial, literary adaptations are more complicated. The problem can come when there is one particular adaptation of a novel which is considered ‘classic’ or ‘definitive.’ That is very much the case with Daphne Du Maurier’s…

REVIEW: Sorry To Bother You (2018)

When I heard about the cast of this film towards the end of last year, my excitement levels went through the roof. Lakeith Stanfield was an extremely hot property after ‘Atlanta’ and ‘Get Out’, Tessa Thompson’s star had risen in 2017 with ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ (and only…

Fiona’s March Round-Up

While the UK enjoys the quality of Oscar-nominated films such as ‘The Shape of Water’ and ‘Lady Bird’ in the first few months of the year, the first quarter can be something of a barren wasteland in US cinemas. We did get ‘Paddington 2’ in…

REVIEW: Free Fire (2017)

As proven with his already impressive slate of films, British director Ben Wheatley has a unique, creative and wonderful vision. With a cast as impressive as this one, a proven knack for retro flair as demonstrated in 2016’s insanely brilliant ‘High-Rise’, and a singular location…

REVIEW: Cars 3 (2017)

REVIEW: Nocturnal Animals (2016)

It’s hard to believe that ‘Nocturnal Animals’ is only the second directorial outing for fashion designer Tom Ford, seemingly already establishing himself as somewhat of an auteur.
