FILM FESTIVAL REPORT – OIAF 2019

Another year, another festival gone by. Ever since 2013, I’ve been attending the Ottawa International Animation Festival every consecutive year; and I honestly hope that this trend won’t stop anytime soon. What makes the OIAF such a special festival, is it’s unfiltered lens on art and the social-political climate. Unlike the Toronto International Film Festival, […]

Greener Grass – Review

There’s no escaping from the horrors of nuclear-family suburbia. With Greener Grass, it’s difficult to really comment on the film’s bizarre nature, without ruining the delightful obscurity and it’s absurd sequence of events. It’s a film that specifically delves into the confines of a pitch-perfect multi-verse, a technicolor fantasy of walking, moving puppets. Adapted from […]

Jojo Rabbit – FNC 2019 Review

The Whistlers – FNC 2019 Review

After surfing on a career high as one of the primary leaders of the Romanian New Wave, Corneliu Porumboiu has been changing the game with films such as The Treasure and Police, Adjective since 06’. The 44-year old director is an experimenter of sorts, an auteur who constantly plays with audience expectations, genre-tropes, and the […]

THE KING – LFF 2019 REVIEW

A bowl cut (exhibited by Timothée in The King) is specific to the person who wears it; not being a suitable fit for everyone. So is David Michôd’s The King, a film that feels like it’s an experience only some would particularly enjoy. Based on several plays from William Shakespeare’s “Henriad”, The King recounts the […]
