Don’t Look Up (2021)

A sadly accurate depiction of the times. The brilliant writing makes it appear like satire, an SNL sketch of sorts, but it is REAL. It is what we have endured and continue to endure with the polarisation and ignorance of society.

There are references aplenty and they make for a shudder down your spine, nervous laugh, head shaking variety. A commentary on the current and future trends and what we as a society tend to focus on needs a lot of attention, which is what the cast is attempting to highlight. Either by their action or wilful delusion.

We have had multiple wake up calls and are in the midst of one currently. But the truth is often harder to digest and address than the ‘alternative facts’. The ensemble cast is superlative in presenting us these perspectives which beg for logic and alarm.

Thoroughly disturbing, eye opening and humbling.



Little Women (2020)

It is so difficult to do justice to a classic and director Greta Gerwig has done just that.

Connecting your emotions to the story and the characters from the first frame, we see a pure and simple bond between the siblings and everything that affects them.

Many highs and lows later the performances remain consistently strong and deep, where we are seen rooting for all of them.

A heart-warming start to the year and a fitting choice for every accolade.


Call me by your name (2017)

Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet were probably not expecting the stir this film would create in the awards season when they set out to act the principle characters.

Set in a simpler time, it speaks of discovery, passion and what usually follows, heartbreak. An unlikely love story in a charming locale, it reminds us of a story long forgotten, told in a nostalgic way. Peppered with deep and meaningful scenes throughout, all credit goes to director Luca Guadagnino for a sensitive cinematic adaptation of the novel of the same name.
