Jojo Rabbit review – A Delightfully Imaginative and Endearing Satire | Toronto Film Festival 2019

Nazis. The Hitler Youth. A comedic Adolf Hitler. In the hands of anybody else Jojo Rabbit would most likely be a disastrous career-tanking move but for Taika Waititi (Thor Ragnarok) it only cements his status as one the most exciting, audacious and endearing filmmakers of modern age. His latest film Jojo Rabbit which is based off…

Just Mercy review – Impressive Performances Rule over Conventional Beats | Toronto Film Festival 2019

There’s almost a running joke in Destin Daniel Cretton’s courtroom drama ‘Just Mercy’ about how the film’s primary location Monroeville Alabama, is home to the museum of author Harper Lee’s ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ - something every citizen feels the need to advertise to all visitors. Although they take great pride in being the home…

A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood review – A Warm Cinematic Ray of Light | Toronto Film Festival 2019

On paper a biopic about someone who was relentlessly kind as Mr Rogers sounds like a disastrous idea for a film. Narratively speaking, a film needs conflict for our protagonist. He needs to be flawed so we can observe him learn and overcome said flaw. But for anybody who hasn’t seen last years delightful documentary Won’t You…

IT Chapter Two review – Jessica Chastain Soars in This Intense, Horrifying and Touching Sequel

Coming off of the smash-hit success that was IT in 2017, naturally a sequel awaited. Finally after two years of waiting it has arrived and it sure is well worth the wait. IT Chapter Two is far more intense, the horror is amped up and never turned down. Both films triumph in their own ways,…

‘Joker’ – Joaquin Phoenix’s Deliriously Unhinged Performance Provides An Absolutely Masterful Piece Of Cinema

Todd Phillips’ 'Joker' is a near cinematic masterpiece with Joaquin Pheonix leading the film with a deliriously unhinged but sympathetic performance as antihero Arthur Fleck/Joker.
