Nae Pasaran Review – Solidarity Forever (Rating: 9/10)

The atrocities that took place in Chile throughout the early 1970s are not something I was ever informed of in my British school.

But somehow, in bed the other night, I ended up forgoing Roma for The … Continue reading The Princess Switch Review – A Christmas Movie At Its Most Fantastically Silly (Rating: 5/10)

Cam Review – A Chilling Allegory And A Brutal Look At The Violence Women Face Online (Rating: 8/10)

Though I’m not a webcam girl or involved in the online sex industry whatsoever, I held a great deal of empathy for what lead character Alice went through in Daniel Goldhaber’s feature film debut Cam.
