    **I wrote this review for uni and it's been a while since I've written a proper review like this and I'm very happy with how it turned out so please enjoy and let me know if you want to see me write more stuff like this**

    As we traverse arduous times, we yearn to escape back to our childhoods. When the obstacles we faced seem trivial upon reflection. Often we look back on these times as if they were a…

    A grand deconstruction of colonialist film language and the traditional neo-realism that had driven most Senegalese films before it all while still managing to focus on its two main characters.

    Following a young couple, we see them grapple with no future in Senegal as they seek to move to France. Rejecting one's cultural background in order for a different life isn't the only main conflict despite being the focus of the narrative.

Is it just about spies? Is Dominika Egorova kind of like a narcissistic sociopath and she's a spy so every guy falls in love her because she makes him feel bad about himself and that’s the love story? I haven’t seen…

    In film school, I had to watch the opening 10 minutes of this film then write about the editing in said time. It was recommended that I watch the film but I didn't. I just read the book published by BFI on it. A huge mistake as the book mainly concentrates on the structure of the film not how it expresses fascism.

    The 49th Parallel, a piece of wartime propaganda does a more than sufficient job on how fascism corrupts…
