With director Chloe Zhao also snapping […]

Throughout this time, arts organisations have become more creative in the ways they bring their performances and shows to the public. Many resorted to the live-broadcasting on YouTube, but the National Theatre took it a […]

REVIEW: Search Party’s Chaotic Season Four

The mysterious, dark comedy, Search Party, debuted in 2016 as a quirky and reasonably thrilling watch with a basic premise: four 20-something New Yorkers attempt to find a missing person who they barely know.

Starring two of my favourite actors (Zendaya and John David Washington), written and directed by Sam Levinson and completely centring around one night in a relationship seemed like the key ingredients of what would become my new favourite film.

Revisiting a Classic: Cleo from 5 to 7

In a year that saw very few cinematic released (unless you count the endless Netflix-originals that have been churned out left and right), we have no other choice but to revisit some old classics. Cléo from 5 to 7 (1962) might not be as famous as other films of the French New Wave, however, even […]
