Loveless (2017) – Review

A couple going through the early stages of divorce, but still living together in the same accommodation in Moscow, must team up together and put their hatred for each other aside, when their only son disappears suddenly after overhearing and witnessing their deteriorating relationship over time. Are the pair too late to find him or is this much more than just a case of a runaway child? This Russian drama may not be the most exciting release of 2017 but it’s worth of a watch.

The Platform (2019) – Review

When a man known only as Goreng (Ivan Massague) signs up to voluntarily become a prisoner of a vertical system that holds two people per cell, per floor, he quickly comes to the realisation that he has signed up for more than just six months of solitary confinement. Each cell has just two minutes per day to feast on the platform of food that they are presented with and the lower the platform goes, the less food there is. An unbelievably imaginative feature film that is currently streaming on Netflix.

Parasite (2019) – Review

A considerably poor and desperate family (the Kims) con their way into becoming workers for a rich household (the Parks) within the same district, where each family member manages to adopt a distinctively different role after they were all acquired in a wicked, dishonest and deceitful manner. Who comes out on top of this classic tale of rich vs poor? A good movie but one that perhaps didn’t quite live up to the hype that had been thrust upon it by most.
