London Film Festival 2019: Rare Beasts

Rating: ★★ Directorial debuts are tough, and it gives people a chance to establish their personal style. Sadly for me, Billie Piper’s first film had a style that didn’t sit well with me at all. She was heavily involved in the project; directing, writing and starring in it, but her unique first film is perhaps a bit too quirky. Rare Beasts follows Mandy, a career-driven … Continue reading London Film Festival 2019: Rare Beasts

It must be even more intimidating when your subject is still alive, and in this case, Elton John is very much alive and kicking at the age of 72. Rocketman was a project that was … Continue reading “Rocketman”: A dazzling, brutally honest biopic

Trust No One: My thoughts on thriller “Greta”

Rating: ★★★★ It felt like I’d been waiting an eternity for Greta, and the suspense was killing me. I’d seen plenty of feedback from those who attended TIFF, and the trailer had played before so many films I’d seen in the cinema. The concept had intrigued me from day one, as I find myself very drawn to thrillers such as this one. Being stalked is … Continue reading Trust No One: My thoughts on thriller “Greta”
