Glasgow Film Festival 2021: Voice of Silence Review

So for the last of the films I saw at the Glasgow Film Festival, I wanted to watch another Korean film, given that there was a focus on Korean cinema at the festival and, looking at what was on offer, this stood out to me. On paper this looked like a really good dark comedy,… Continue reading Glasgow Film Festival 2021: Voice of Silence Review

Glasgow Film Festival 2021: Spring Blossom Review

Whilst there is still one more film I saw at this year’s Glasgow Film Festival, I wanted to get my review of the closing film done first. As I watched the opening film, Minari, I wanted to make sure I saw the closing film as well. Unfortunately, I ended up being disappointed with this. The… Continue reading Glasgow Film Festival 2021: Spring Blossom Review

Glasgow Film Festival 2021: Cowboys Review

Continuing with my reviews of films from the 2021 Glasgow Film Festival, Cowboys was one of the films that immediately stood out to me when I saw it on the programme.

Glasgow Film Festival 2021: Sweetheart Review

With the next film I chose to see at this years Glasgow Film Festival, I wanted more of a straight up comedy and looking through what was on offer, this film stood out.

Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams are fascinating figures and a film exploring their friendship should be fascinating. Unfortunately though, aside from a few interesting… Continue reading Glasgow Film Festival 2021: Truman and Tennessee: An Intimate Conversation Review

Glasgow Film Festival 2021: Black Bear Review

This is going to be a bit of a hard film to review. I had heard good things about this, but it is a hard film to talk about as halfway through the film radically changes. If I want to do my usual plot synopsis of this, it would be disingenuous as it would skip… Continue reading Glasgow Film Festival 2021: Black Bear Review

Glasgow Film Festival 2021: My Favourite War Review

With any film festival, I want to try and see any animated films that they have on offer and this time there looked to be an interesting one with My Favourite War. Now I think animation can do some great things with documentaries, as films like Waltz with Bashir have shown and there are some… Continue reading Glasgow Film Festival 2021: My Favourite War Review

Glasgow Film Festival 2021: Minari Review

Like many other film festivals recently, the 2021 Glasgow Film Festival has gone online as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Whilst I wish I was in Glasgow for this, I also know that there are some films that I wouldn’t have been able to see otherwise. Case in point, the opening film this year,… Continue reading Glasgow Film Festival 2021: Minari Review
