the bomb

the bomb was another film that I managed to catch at Sheffield DocFest, but something struck a chord with me when watching it as I went back to see it again.

On Tuesday evening DocFest hosted it’s award ceremony and announced that the winner of the audience award was The Work. This same film actually picked up the Grand Jury prize for documentaries at South by Southwest film festival, which is really unsurprising considering The Work is potentially one of the most emotionally raw and profound documentaries I...

Sheffield Doc/Fest: Ulysses in the Subway (2017)

This mockumentary is based on a fictional seven day... Continue Reading →

Searching For Sugar Man

The other night, I found Searching For Sugar Man on LoveFilm instant, and after watching their academy award acceptance for best documentary, I've been intrigued since. What is essentially the plot, is intriguing in itself, which is compelled me into watching it even more so. The premise of the film surrounds a musician by the... Continue Reading →
