Film Review: Flash Gordon 4K

He may “save every one of us” (wailed Freddie Mercury in the Flash Gordon title song by Queen), but for a great deal of its development and creation, it was a miracle that the movie got finished at all, and wasn’t crushed mercilessly by a great many factors and tons of sequins.

Film Review: Alice

Who wouldn’t want to get revenge for a cheating husband?
Seemingly the perfect family unit. Husband, wife and young son, this French film dares to delve beneath the shiny exterior and expose the truth that has wrecked countless marriages, when one partner has an affair

Film Review: Days of the Bagnold Summer

feature debut directed by Simon Bird ( the wonderfully hapless Will from The Inbetweeners) based on a graphic novel by Joff Winterhart and adapted by Lisa Owen.

Film Review: The Elephant Man

Whether folk have seen the ‘The Elephant Man’ (1980) directed by at the time new weird kid on the block David Lynch, or not, there’s a strong likelihood that they know the existence of one John Merrick (born Joesph) who lived in Victorian London.

Film Review: Dogs Don’t Wear Pants

The latest release by these bastions of strange, is completely on point with their remit of the quirky and off kilter, all incredibly beautifully rendered and told by Finnish director J-P Valkeapää.

Film Review: The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man may have been a book written a wee bit of time ago in 1897, by none other than one of the fathers of science fiction H.G. Wells, but in 2020, the film adaptation by director/writer Leigh Whannell is possibly the most zeitgeisty movie I have EVER seen!

Festival Preview: Glasgow Film Festival 2020

Bold. Immersive. Original. Undeniably Scottish. The annual Glasgow Film Festival mightn’t (yet) be one of the UK’s heavy-hitters in terms of major releases in the film festival calendar (hello, London and Edinburgh) but it remains the everyday cinephile’s favourite thanks to its variety, inclusivity and willingness to veer outside the box – a shining silver screen at the end of the long Northern winter.

Film: Mrs Lowry & Son – now on Blu-ray/DVD

Flush covered the cinematic release of Mrs Lowry & Son towards the end of last year, and we were completely enamoured with the entire film, maybe just as devoted as L.S. was to his mother.
