Apocalypto (2006) – Review

Set around the time of Mayan civilisation, a young man’s journey is followed after his peaceful tribe is forcefully attacked by strangers, who were seeking slaves and a large amount of people for human sacrifice. Jaguar Paw (Rudy Youngblood) hides his wife and young son in a deep cave nearby, before being captured himself. He must then fight to survive and return to save his family. A massively successful Mel Gibson picture that centers around a subject that many filmmakers would try to avoid.

The Lighthouse (2019) – Review

Two lighthouse keepers attempt to maintain their sanity while living on a remote, secluded and mysterious New England island in the 1890’s. For four weeks, the men will only have themselves for company, will they crack under the pressure of isolation and allow their tension and hatred towards each other to boil over? Definitely one of the finest cinema releases of 2019 and one that is definitely worth a watch.
