The Imitation Game – Review (Spoiler Free)

Strong performances and a compelling subject anchor this otherwise simplified biopic… It’s interesting when a film comes out accompanied by the words ‘performance of [insert actor of the moment here]’s career’, it changes things. Going in we consequently expect to see a deeply layered and nuanced look at Turing’s life (and Cumberbatch makes every effort […]

Begin Again – Review (Spoiler Free)

Begin Again is everything that you hope for in a feel-good summer movie. Which isn’t to say that it’s perfect, nor is it as strong a film as Carney’s previous hit Once, but with Begin Again you’ll find yourself often grinning at the unashamedly upbeat vibe and joyful celebration of music. The story of two […]

Begin Again Q&A – Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and James Corden

Anna Karenina – Review (Spoiler Free)

Anna Karenina’s pleasing to the eye, but once you engage the mind and heart it falls irredeemably flat. Heavily stylised dance sequences, glittering visuals and visible costume and set changes take place almost entirely within the confines of an old theatre. The action plays out across this stage and whilst being attention grabbing and fleetingly […]

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World – Review (Spoiler Free)

It was the possibility of seeing Keira Knightley successfully break out of her typecast roles which played a big part in drawing me to this film, and she doesn’t disappoint. She has chosen a very different role in order to make this change and vinyl-loving, weed-smoking Penny is more than removed enough from her normal […]
