Darling Girl Short Film Review

Image
  Full review here -  https://www.ukfilmreview.co.uk/post/darling-girl-short-film-review In Victoria Smith’s Darling Girl , Ada (Hannah Knight) searches for solace in the arms of the theatre. The short opens with Ada’s mother shouting in the distance. On the screen, we witness an unhappy face belonging to Ada. It’s apparent that this house is boiling with trouble. Your suspicions are confirmed when Ada’s mother enters the room. Those who want to spend time in peace should stay away from situations that place this duo against each other. The mother-daughter shout and squawk not only because of hatred but also because there exists a distance between them. They resort to yelling in order to make themselves heard by the other person.

Skater Girl, On Netflix, Achieves What It Sets Out To Do

  Full review here -  https://www.filmcompanion.in/readers-articles/skater-girl-movie-review-netflix-achieves-what-it-sets-out-to-do-rachel-saanchita-gupta-amrit-maghera/ A boy takes a ride to his school by sitting on his "bearing car," pushed by his sister. "Faster!" he shouts as if trying to race the wind. His sister obliges. Skater Girl , director Manjari Makijany's new Netflix film, opens with these images. The way she shows the exhilaration of this moment and the laughter on the children's faces by introducing slow motion and upbeat music instantly hooked me to this film. The last time a film made me fall in love with it during its opening itself was The Half of It . If movies are magic, this magic could be surely found at the beginning of both The Half of It and Skater Girl . You sense joy, affection, sweetness and these core feeling remains intact throughout Skater Girl (except for a few scenes but more on those later). Find Me On: Twitter  -  https

Shiva Baby Excels At And Owns Its Claustrophobic Setting

  Full review here -  https://www.filmcompanion.in/readers-articles/shiva-baby-movie-review-excels-at-and-owns-its-claustrophobic-setting-rachel-sennott-molly-gordon-emma-seligman/ Let it be made clear that  Shiva Baby  has no relation whatsoever with the Hindu God, his childhood, or his sons. The film deals with Judaism in which a shiva (or sitting shiva) is the week-long mourning period where, according to Wikipedia, the relatives discuss their loss and accept the comfort of others. While it sounds soothing for the mental pain, it’s the second word in the title that dials up the stress in the film’s already tense atmosphere. “Who the fuck brings a baby to a shiva?” someone comments. She’s not wrong, as you later see how uncomfortable the mood becomes with the crying of this baby.

It Gets In Your Blood Documentary Review

Image
  Full review here - https://www.ukfilmreview.co.uk/post/it-gets-in-your-blood-documentary-review I t’s easy to see why director Ed Hartman is so inspired by Richard Lyford. If you are one of those people who just went, “Richard who?,” then It Gets In Your Blood is definitely for you. Within 14 minutes, the documentary provides a highlight of Lyford and his praiseworthy achievements. You gather knowledge on his love for his craft but end up knowing little about his personal life. Maybe there is nothing special to dwell on there, or perhaps the runtime posed as a problem for covering his personal life in detail. Whatever be the reason, it makes It Gets In Your Blood a conversation starter. Hartman wants us to recognize this personality, and you do so with significant admiration.

Wapping - The Workers' Story Documentary Review

Image
  Full review here -  https://www.ukfilmreview.co.uk/post/wapping-the-workers-story-documentary-review What happened at Wapping in January of 1986 is downright tragic and woebegone. It was the fateful month and year when 6000 workers were sacked by Rupert Murdoch. None of the employees expected to be confronted by this tragedy. In Chris Reeves’ Wapping - The Workers’ Story , you would hear an admission of innocence. A worker says that they were naive and never anticipated that Murdoch would end up taking such a step. What did he do? He moved the production of his newspapers from central London’s Fleet Street to Wapping. It was an overnight decision that was set up slowly and secretly.  Find Me On: Twitter  -  https://twitter.com/vikasonorous Facebook  -  https://www.facebook.com/vimovies123/ Email  - vikasy199@gmail.com

Now comes another addition to the list featuring the same old routine: an underachiever teaching his players to dream.  Rajisha Vijayan  slips into the role of a PT teacher named Maria Francis, who trains her team of girl students in the fine arts of the game.

Sunflowers Documentary Review

  Full review here -  https://www.ukfilmreview.co.uk/post/sunflowers-documentary-review Anyone familiar with Vincent van Gogh knows how breathtaking his paintings are and how tragic his life was. While he was alive, his work didn’t fetch him commercial success. He suffered from depression and cared less for his physical health. To mend himself mentally, he took up painting and loaded his canvas with brightness and optimism. But we know his life only descended into madness. After his friendship with Gauguin terminated, he dissevered his ears and was committed to psychiatric hospitals. On 29 July 1890, Van Gogh died from the wounds he inflicted upon his body by means of suicide.  Find Me On: Twitter  -  https://twitter.com/vikasonorous Facebook  -  https://www.facebook.com/vimovies123/ Email  - vikasy199@gmail.com
