Companion piece – The Florida Project & Beach Rats

It’s been a little while since I really posted any blog posts about film and cinema. Disgraceful given how much I love the medium. I’m looking to right that for this second half of the year, and include more regular blogs on things I’ve been watching or general thoughts. I rather enjoyed my last companion…… Continue reading Companion piece – The Florida Project & Beach Rats

Coco is beautiful and deeply affecting, exactly the type of animation I adore

Coco is one of my favourites of the year so far and has jumped into the number one spot as my favourite Pixar film. I’ve always been fascinated by Dia de los muertos, not least for the skull imagery and bright colours. It’s about memory and family though. Family is incredibly important to me, so…… Continue reading Coco is beautiful and deeply affecting, exactly the type of animation I adore

Making a case for…Anthropoid

Anthropoid came and went virtually entirely under the radar in 2016. With a fairly limited UK release, needless to say it was out and gone, lost amongst the excitement for the Autumn blockbusters and generally ignored by many. This meant I missed out on it at the cinema and had to wait patiently until finally…… Continue reading Making a case for…Anthropoid

Endless List of Scores I love – #1 In the Heart of the Sea (Roque Banos)

If you follow me on any other social media, you’ll know that I am a sucker for a good film score. To be able to pick them up on my vinyl helped influence me to get my record player and I have a nice, albeit small, collection of film or television scores on vinyl. I…… Continue reading Endless List of Scores I love – #1 In the Heart of the Sea (Roque Banos)
