I like to write about films

Fact vs Fiction: Molly’s Game (2018)

The debut feature from Aaron Sorkin; Molly's Game is a biopic that hovers between a poignant look at addiction/overcoming failure, and a sort of "what if The Wolf of Wallstreet was about poker?" drama. Based on actual events, it's a gripping film... Continue Reading →

Fact vs Fiction: Foxcatcher (2014)

Caught somewhere between crime-drama, sports movie, and psychological thriller; Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher lays out the intricacies and oddities of professional wrestling as a backdrop to explore obsessions with greatness in multiple facets. Based on actual events, it's a profound story about the... Continue Reading →

Fact vs Fiction: The Disaster Artist (2017)

Chronicling the conception and (extremely troubled) production of Tommy Wiseau's The Room probably isn't the easiest of tasks, between the mystery surrounding its director and its status as one of the worst films ever made. Remarkably, James Franco's The Disaster Artist transcends the... Continue Reading →

Fact vs Fiction: The Blair Witch Project (1999)

The OG of found footage films, Eduardo Sanchez/Daniel Myrick's The Blair Witch Project is an infamous example of the power of suggestibility and the terror that lies in the unknown. Filled to bursting with eerie camp-outs, unexplained rustlings, and (incredibly flattering)... Continue Reading →

Fact vs Fiction: Kate Plays Christine (2016)

Toying with the notions of fact and fiction; blurring their edges and sweeping the differences under the rug, Robert Greene's Kate Plays Christine is a gripping film that shape-shifts its way between thriller and documentary genres, almost defying definition in its... Continue Reading →

Dogtooth / Kynodontas (2009)

Beautiful, bizarre, and bizarrely beautiful: Yorgos Lanthimos' Dogtooth isn't the easiest film to digest, but it's certainly still one hell of a feast for the senses. Almost oppressive in its coldness, Lanthimos manages to serve up a film that constantly moves... Continue Reading →

Thor Ragnarok (2017)

The latest feature from Taika Waititi, Thor Ragnarok positively bursts at the seams with colourful, camp-y goodness that proves superhero movies don't have to be gritty/edgy to be a good-time-had-by-all success. Mashing up Norse mythology with comic book style while balancing... Continue Reading →

The Final Girls present: We Are the Weirdos

A production by The Final Girls, We Are The Weirdos is a brilliant selection of short films from some of the newest female voices of the horror genre; spanning from slashers to circus to body horror sub-genres, and with narratives concerning... Continue Reading →

SPOOKTOBER: Day 31 — Halloween (1978)

Nothing goes hand-in-hand with the horror genre more than terrified teenage girls, and John Carpenter's Halloween serves up adolescent terror by the truck load. A landmark in defining the slasher film; it's a brilliant little movie that, with the familiar claustrophobic... Continue Reading →
