    Taxi Driver


    Robert De Niro’s portrayal of Travis Bickle is the finest performance any actor has ever given in cinema history, extremely natural, albeit socially awkward and mesmerising to watch. A flawless character piece that runs incredibly deep touching on mental health, Bickle is unhinged, suffers from loneliness and isolation, and altogether a very complex character. Taxi Driver has always been a favourite of mine, and I’ve been obsessed with it for many years. An excellent supporting cast including Jodie Foster in…

  • Barbarian



    Barbarian is bizarre, but a fresh approach to the horror genre and quite frankly a breath of fresh air. The film unnerved me, and I had absolutely no idea where it was going. A tense atmosphere, filled with dreaded tension, and a simple but affective score. Loved it.

  • Mimic



    Mimic is a solid horror from the visionary Guillermo del Toro, certainly an unappreciated film, and I would have loved it had I seen it in the 90s. Dark location settings that really build the tension and suspense, effects that are a bit hokey but it definately didn't halt my enjoyment of the film.

  • Pickup on South Street

    Pickup on South Street


    Pickup on South Street doesn't muck around, at only 80 minutes long, we drive jump straight into this punchy, well edited film full of great characters, and a brilliantly directed story. The romance is very quickly realised, but I'm used to seeing this in other old noir films. All in all, very entertaining with sharp dialogue and a satisfying ending.

    Captain Phillips


    I am baffled as to why an Oscar nomination has eluded Tom Hanks for his portrayal of Captain Phillips.

    This does not sit well with me. Hanks was remarkable.

  • The Power of the Dog

    The Power of the Dog


    On a technical level, The Power of the Dog is outstanding, masterclass of acting from all involved, gorgeous cinematography and camerawork. A haunting score from Jonny Greenwood, and smart direction from Jane Campion. However, it's a shame the story doesn't quite follow suit. It's far from dull, and I liked it a lot, but I just wanted more from it.
