Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga

★★★★ - STUFF - Furiosa: This Road meets Road Runner brings the Joy- I'm a big believer in watching films in the way they are supposed to be seen. I run out of patience pretty quickly with anyone who tries to corner me at a party with some tedious nonsense about how they didn't like Dune or…

Wicked Little Letters

★★★★ - THE GUARDIAN  - The true tale of a foul-mouthed scribbler in 1920s Sussex is given nuance by a stellar cast including Olivia Colman, Jessie Buckley, Anjana Vasan and Timothy Spall -  Before X or Twitter or even YouTube, if you wanted to vent your rage at an unjust world on a blameless…
