Todd Douglas Miller’s ‘Apollo 11’: A Review
We’ve all seen the images. The big ones this film puts onscreen, even some of the ones it kinda deliberately tries to edit around in favour of different angles on the same material. Which is kinda wild by the way, they’re on the fucking moon and they set up multiple angles.
Netflix’s ‘Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story By Martin Scorsese’ Review
I guess the experience of watching this film might be just about as overwhelming as watching one of the concerts. Yet at least the audience there would have had the benefit of context to experience it within.
They Shall Not Grow Old Review — The old lie…
To celebrate the centenary of the Great War, one of cinema’s great technical fabulists has attempted to change the way that we process our history. Peter Jackson has colourised, digitised and converted into 3D the cinematic and photographic documentation of the life of British soldiers on the Western Front. Of course this caused controversy in…
McQueen Review – Corporate art
It must be hard being extraordinary. It’s like once the world has singled you out as being so, there’s no escaping it. All of a sudden your hours are not yours, your living becomes an act of public service. I guess everyone deals with it in their own way. It seems easier the more populist…
Walk With Me Review – Keep in mind

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power Review – 2th
When a major criticism of your charitable awareness and outreach program is that it is too self-serving, it might not be best to make a film which seems to validate all those critiques. The conversation around Al Gore don’t really seem to have changed in any meaningful way since the release of manbearpig back in…
City of Ghosts Review – Raqqa is being slaughtered silently
This ain’t that great a review. I don’t have much to say here aside from that City of Ghosts is a brilliant, amazing film and you should totally all see it.
Kedi Review- The cutest film
It’s the cutest film of the year. It’s literally called Kitty.
Letters From Baghdad: Lady Lawrence
There’s this amazing bit in the story of Gertrude Bell when, on one of her Middle Eastern expeditions she runs into a young man working as an apprentice at an archaeological site. And she tells him, ‘Hey dude, I know you’re just starting out, but you’re digging all shitty. We’re trying to preserve history here,…
