REVIEW:
THE STRING DIARIES

kane

"I love the concept of shapeshifting. It's been around as long as humans have been capable of telling stories, and it has taken a variety of forms throughout the ages. It's wonderful in that it's innately terrifying. Few things have aged so well. At the root of this horror is the concept Jones' novel explores most: the fact that with a shapeshifter after you, you can't trust anyone. This is a special kind of seclusion – if anyone around you could be your enemy, how do you know whom you can trust?" READ MORE


REVIEW: THE IMMIGRANT

immigrant

"'The Immigrant' treads familiar melodramatic ground but its rich period setting and its focus on three well-developed central roles mean that it is an engaging watch. It is worth seeing the film for Cotillard’s performance alone - from desperation, to resignation, to resilience and then determination, charting her character’s change from one stage of the plot to the next is quite something to behold."

REVIEW: DOING HARM

kane

"According to Canadian forensic psychologist Robert Hare, one percent of the general population can be categorized as psychopathic. That translates into approximately 300,000 Canadians and 3,000,000 Americans. While most of us think of psychopaths as violent criminals and murderers hopefully behind prison bars, the reality is more frightening."READ MORE
