Film Review: Beauty And The Beast (USA, 2017) has breathtaking moments of grandiose cinematic bliss

July 12, 2016

There’s something an uncanny quality to Our Kind of Traitor. It looks like cold war thriller, sounds like a cold war thriller but, when you get down to it, it’s not. Not really. It wears the trappings of the genre with pride but, by taking place in modern times, fails to do much beyond wear them.... Continue Reading
