REVIEW: “Manages to end with the message it started with” – ‘Orange Is the New Black’ (Season 7)

“in equal parts uplifting and upsetting, but ultimately satisfying, conclusion to one of Netflix’s flagship pieces of original programming.” If there’s one thing that ‘Orange Is the New Black’ has taught us, it’s that not everybody gets a happy ending.

REVIEW: “A Bark With No Bite” – ‘Anima’ (2019)

★ ★ “Disappointingly flat, delivering platitudes instead of punch” Thom Yorke has always been wary of the digital age.

Why Netflix Shouldn’t Have Cancelled ‘Tuca & Bertie’

When a show comes out that’s created by a woman, stars women, and is to its core about women, it’s hard not to be excited. When those women are Lisa Hanawalt, Tiffany Haddish, and Ali Wong, and the show – Tuca & Bertie – is bright, gorgeously animated, and funny, it’s hard not to completely…

REVIEW: “Pihu Will Steal Your Heart” – ‘Pihu’ (2018)

Crafting a film from scratch takes courage, timing and a hell of a lot of planning. So, to suggest centring a feature-length film around a two-year-old girl, who is not only the leading character but the only character featured in the entire film, seems like absolute insanity. Yet for writer/director Vihod Kapri, the insanity works…
