'The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind' review

“Democracy is like imported cassava. It rots quickly.” This sentiment nods to the underlying decay that forms the poignant subtext of Chiwetel Ejiofor’s feature debut ‘The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind’. Based on a true story, Ejiofor’s project, as expected, does what it says on the can, serving bouts of inspiration and dignity but there is a consideration of detail that elevates this film to a quietly distressing experience for African audiences.

'Alita: Battle Angel' review

What makes Alita so special? It’s the only real question I had going into Robert Rodriguez’s 'Alita: Battle Angel'. My loose knowledge of this Anime/Manga adaptation had me looking towards the likes of 'Akira', 'Ghost in a Shell' and even 'Blade Runner' as I tried to measure expectations. The lengthy development period had me primed for a film dense with messy but ambitious ideas about humanity and identity. But Alita never reaches for such heights. And this disappointed for a second.

'Cold Pursuit' review

So, Liam Neeson dug a deep hole for himself ahead of the release of his latest film ‘Cold Pursuit’. Friends and colleagues have had to assure me that it will all be alright in the end for Neeson, that tanking the publicity for ‘Cold Pursuit’ and admitting to a racist blood lust wouldn’t drown out one of my favorite actors.
