London Film Festival Review: The King

Tonally confused and accidentally hilarious, David Michôd’s big-budget Medieval caper The King is an unbelievably silly film – and only half the cast seem to be aware of it.

TV Review: Mindhunter Season 2

The question is: is it human nature to be enticed by sadistic, creepy, yet charming serial killers that psychology, TV and film show us today?

Dear Netflix: Minority-Led Shows can Reach the Majority

Animation has always been a source of joy for me. As someone with an overactive imagination and a longing to find the surreality within reality, I have always found that watching animation gave me a sense of belonging even in the most unfamiliar of territories. Often, the alien worlds of the cartoons I watch feel […]Read More

It’s evident that the show’s formulaic structure works wonderfully for Netflix and its binge-loving audiences, but the separated character plots that are *pretends to be shocked* actually […]Read More
