  • Varda by Agnès

    Varda by Agnès


    It doesn't have the usual technical flair of a Varda film, as 80% of it tends to rest more on Varda addressing her audience in a lecture/public speaking environment. Seeing Varda go through her films explaining, discussing and reminiscing though, delivers the same joy, peacefulness and sanctity as any and all of her work.

  • Midsommar



    Astonishing in its craft, scope and aesthetic execution; with a wonderfully nuanced and intensive performance by Florence Pugh. It's just too damn long and often unengaging - moments that are sculpted to jolt the audience don't land particularly well either. It's a tad predictable and that frustrated me more than anything.

    Effortlessly and exquisitely cool.

    Bone Tomahawk


    An off-kilter and gutsy gem of a film with not a single bad performance. It's intelligently directed, paced well and has some really likeable characters - Richard Jenkins in particular doing some extraordinary work here.
