I had high hopes for this film. I read about it a couple of month’s ago as THE film to make veganism and animal activism more mainstream and accessible. 343 more words

Mini Reviews: Okja (2017), Gifted (2017) & Atonement (2007)

Review: Okja (2017)

I’ve loved the work of South Korean genre-manipulator Bong Joon-ho since university. Criminally, we never got his last film SNOWPIERCER in the UK (at least not officially), so the fact that his latest, OKJA, has gone straight to Netflix is a real boon, a leap forward in film democratisation, whatever Cannes Film Festival says. 175 more words

I came into this movie knowing a lot of the controversy around it (Netflix) and that it was supposed to be pretty good. I watched a trailer before and it looked interesting enough but I wasn’t sure if I would be particularly interested in it. 636 more words
