Gothic drama, The Devil all the Time has become quite the talking point on social media over the past few weeks.

Film / 13/10/2020 Post Lockdown Cinema

I am very fond of films. They are my favourite things in the world. I once watched 509 films in one year. I own an Odeon limitless card and for a long period, I had seen every single film that came out. This is my way of showing I care about cinema. And cinemas. The...

The film is aggressively obtuse and entirely disinterested in explaining itself, so I have no idea whether I ‘got’ it. But to dismiss the film as deranged  nonsense is…

10 Years of Inception

Christopher Nolan’s Inception was released in July 2010, and became a worldwide hit, inspiring parody, homage, and critical acclaim. Made in a very different landscape and context than the one in 2020, it would be easy to underappreciate it. Nolan has become a prominent figure in film in the intervening years and arguably one of…
