Film reviews: Sorry We Missed You by Ken Loach

"A stark reminder of the inhumane lengths bosses will go to under capitalism to increase their profits": "Let's get one thing straight, you don't work for us, you work with us".

Film review: Joker - Sympathising with a monster created by today's incendiary conditions

The most striking thing about this film is how gritty and believable it is. Based on the origin story of one of the most iconic comic book villains of all time, and situated in Gotham City, a carbon copy of New York City, this film is set in the 80s.
