Top TV Shows of 2018

There’s been some absolutely banging TV in 2018. From the new season of Doctor Who (come on Jodie!) to the emotionally turbulent Kiri on Channel 4, to binge-worthy Netflix originals like Home and Mindhunter, to the latest iteration of Queer Eye. Better Call Saul Season 4 Not that they are comparable (though people really love comparing them), but Better Call […]

Top 6 Films of 2018

So here it is, another end of year list. 2018 has, by all accounts, been a wonderful year for film. For me, there’s been a fantastic spread of indie films – Shirkers, Apostasy, The Tale to name but a couple of my personal favourites. I’m not a fan of ranking films – it’s difficult to compare films which are […]

5 Films For the Upcoming Apocalypse: A Guide

I’ve tried to put a funny spin on this because at this point if we don’t laugh, we are going to continually cry. This could have been a list of informative and useless films to help us combat life under white supremacy. It isn’t. Instead, this is a list of films that I think accurately […]

Female Directors: Documentaries You Should See

Disclaimer: I really, really hate that I still need to put ‘female directors’ at the top of this post, because the default for a director is overwhelmingly male. Okay, that said… Though the film industry is notorious for being male dominated, female directors tend to fare ever so slightly better in the documentary industry. Since […]

50 Films of the 21st Century (an alternative list)

BBC Culture released a list of the (alleged) top 100 films of the 21st Century yesterday, and it wasn’t terrifically received by most people.
