Of Dolls and Murder

Throughout the 1930s and 40s, a middle-aged woman from Chicago named Frances Glessner Lee made a significant contribution to the evolution of police forensics by creating the Nutshell Studies, a series of 20 hand-crafted and meticulously detailed dolls house dioramas which depicted violent crime scenes, and were used as training tools for aspiring detectives, who […]

Submarine [Blu-ray]

Richard Ayoade is a British comic actor best known for his work in TV series such as Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace and, most prominently, as supernerd “Moss” in The IT Crowd. However, he has also a strong sideline in directing music videos for the likes of Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, a path that culminated in […]

The films of this period really reflected society’s paranoia and ditched the campness of the 60s and took a darker more unnerving approach, pioneering classics in every sense of the word. The […]

Terri

The teen/high school/coming-of-age film has to be one of the most universal genres. It doesn’t matter if its Jim Stark (Rebel Without A Cause) or Napoleon Dynamite, films of this type elicit nostalgia, make you reminiscence and most people identify with the misfits, loners, the burgeoning sex drive or the eternal teenage struggle to be […]
