The true story that Pride is based on is really one worth telling, and to as many people as will listen. In 1984 a group called LGSM (Lesbians and Gays Suppo...
Alpha males are boring. Underdogs are interesting. In Whiplash, J.K. Simmons plays Fletcher, an overbearing teacher at the best music school in the U.S. who ...
'Force majeure' is the French term for 'a superior or irresistible power'. In insurance law, it's a clause that's often used in const...
Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets

Suicides, underage relationships, adultery, making do. Sheesh! There are some pretty heavy themes in Skeleton Twins, but like any family worth its salt, ther...
We Are The Best!
It's not often I'm reduced to feeling like an early teen when writing about a film. Feeling a bit nervous, trying not to gush and lose my cool. Truth...
ACMI presents 'Tom at the Farm'
Why doesn't Tom just leave that godforsaken farm? Why are the creepiest people sometimes the sexiest people? And why in the heck does Xavier Dolan briefl...
Lavazza Italian Film Festival
Ohhhh, Italy. You boot-shaped, pasta-inventing paradise. You gave us Monica Bellucci and margherita pizza. Versace. Leonardo Da Vinci. Ravioli. The Roman Emp...
Night Moves, like all of Kelly Reichardt's films, is seriously 'indie.' And not indie like ukelele soundtracks, naval-gazing teenagers, puffs of ...
What We Do in the Shadows
I've lived in some pretty weird share houses in my time – including one where the previous tenant collected their menstrual blood in a jar in the bathroo...
'One Day In Tokyo'

Magic in the Moonlight
The jazz age. Magic fakery. An older man interested in a (much, much) younger woman. Let's get this out of the way, shall we? Yes, Woody Allen traverses ...

Some of us attempt to forget our childhoods. We pack the embarrassing details away and shoebox them into our parents' garage, or shred our epically cring...
In between running the very-much-killin'-it label This Thing and producing his own solo work at a prolific rate, you'd think Wooshie wouldn't hav...
20,000 Days on Earth
A lot of critics have commented that 20,000 Days on Earth is only of worth to the musician's fans. Not true. I'll be honest, my own Nick Cave knowled...

The Keeper of Lost Causes
The hard, humourless detective. Arrogant, difficult and brilliantly intuitive. His wife's left him. He chain smokes, hates bad coffee and falls asleep in...
MIFF presents 'Silk'
“She said: ultimately none of this has anything to do with me. And it's not just about the music either. It's about being moved and whatever ha...
MIFF presents 'L For Leisure'
L For Leisure is the kind of film you sit through waiting for it to start. It just goes on and on and then it's over and you're like 'wait, what?...
