From Our Collection

What's New for Movie & Music Lovers


“Charlotte Regan’s debut feature Scrapper bears some resemblance to Charlotte Wells’ first film Aftersun — both are stories of grief and struggling father-daughter relationships. But while both speak to a bold new confidence in British filmmaking, Scrapper exists in its own world, manifesting in wildly different ways to Wells’. For Regan, that world is colourful, hopeful and full of spirit, far removed from the kitchen sink-isms too often considered a requirement for social-realist cinema telling working-class stories.” Full Review

“The folk singer and counterculture veteran Joan Baez is the subject of this intimate and painful documentary, which brings us to the brink of a terribly traumatic revelation that it can’t quite bear to spell out.” Full Review
