Blu-Ray Review: A Hologram for the King

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt/@Afroilmviewer Despite featuring the ever affable Tom Hanks and adapted from a well-known and enjoyed author, A Hologram for the King (novel by Dave Eggers) received a rather muted reception when realised earlier this year. The film was only really rivalled by Sing Street in the...

Review: Set the Thames on Fire

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt When it comes to the creative process, one should admire the ambition. When reading reviews of artistic endeavours, it seems that sometimes writers appear to forget that they are critiquing the efforts of a crew that have clearly worked hard to attempt to bring together...

DVD Review: Miles Ahead

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt The fact that the box office chatter about Suicide Squad has droned on longer than Miles Ahead’s U.K theatrical run, says two things to me.

It takes a Dario Argento approach towards proceedings. As much as we like to often deny our baser...

DVD Review: Eddie The Eagle

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt I can’t remember the time I saw a film so incredibly inoffensive. Usually, as a film writer, one is often attracted to a film with an intense, diverse reaction. Dexter Fletcher’s Eddie the Eagle; the colourful true story of Eddie Edwards, the tenacious underdog whose...

Blu-Ray Review: Mirror

Review by Leslie Byron Pitt "Tarkovsky for me is the greatest (director), the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream." – Ingmar Bergman The films of Andrei Tarkovsky demand attention in a way that...

DVD Review: High-Rise

Review By Leslie Byron Pitt As the United Kingdom almost begrudgingly trudges towards Brexit and certain political parties seem hell bent on eating each other alive, my second viewing of High-Rise has firmly confirmed that it's one of the best films of the year. Ben Wheatley's adaptation of 70’s civilisation...
