Doctor Who: The Star Beast

Doctor Who returns to celebrate its 60th anniversary with The Star Beast, the first of three special episodes starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate, who reprise their roles as the Doctor and Donna Noble, respectively. Written by Russell T Davies, The Star Beast is adapted from the 1980 comic strip by Pat Mills and Dave…… Continue reading Doctor Who: The Star Beast

Cat Person

Based on the controversial New Yorker short story, Cat Person’s cinematic adaptation, directed by Susanna Fogel, is an unfortunate, problematic depiction of how it demonstrates the anxieties of being a woman. Released two weeks before Molly Manning Walker’s How to Have Sex, sandwiching Cat Person with Emerald Fennell’s Promising Young Woman, its political activism should have had strength…… Continue reading Cat Person

Killers of the Flower Moon

Directed by Martin Scorsese and co-written with Eric Roth, the epic on the treatment of the Osage people is a spectacle starring long-time collaborators Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio that firmly belongs on streaming and is likely to bring the spotlight onto the indigenous communities during the awards seasons for the first time since…… Continue reading Killers of the Flower Moon

Chasing Chasing Amy

“The film wasn’t my truth” admits Joey Lauren Adams, the lead actress from Kevin Smith’s Chasing Amy, the Golden Globe nominated film about a man who falls in love with a lesbian. Except for Chasing Chasing Amy’s Sav Rodgers, it’s entirely their truth. Chasing Amy became their everything. An all-consuming identity they have obsessed over…… Continue reading Chasing Chasing Amy

In an alternate society, love is finally quantifiable. Partners undergo analysis of their fingernails to see whether one or both are in love wholly with the…… Continue reading Fingernails

Robot Dreams

There is a beautiful simplicity in Pablo Berger’s Robot Dreams, based on the graphic novel of the same name by Sara Varon. The subtleties of glances, and its score elevate the story of Dog and Robot to perfection. A Dog, and his constructed friend Robot learn separation, and companionship within a 1980s New York. Where…… Continue reading Robot Dreams

Bonus Track

It’s rare, but when a film feels like its story is for you specifically in mind, it becomes an indescribable euphoria. With its indie soundtrack and a charming coming-of-age tale about a socially awkward teen finding solace through music, Bonus Track feels like plucked from a checklist of my tastes. A shame then, that it…… Continue reading Bonus Track


Emerald Fennell’s Saltburn delivers as a follow-up to her socially relevant Promising Young Woman with a wickedly character-lead performance by Barry Keoghan. Keoghan, following his awards season success in Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees of Inisherin, maintains his reputation as a triumphant actor to mould his delivery and his identity to fit its setting, even though…… Continue reading Saltburn

The Creator

Gareth Edwards’ science fiction epic, The Creator, is a visual behemoth that deserves seeing, with its relevant and timely discussion on the role and developments of artificial intelligence becoming all too poignant as Hollywood strikes continue. Whilst not always perfect in its storytelling, Gareth Edwards’ latest directorial and writing project is an evident celebration of the…… Continue reading The Creator
