  • The Wolf of Snow Hollow

    The Wolf of Snow Hollow

    ★★★★

    The somewhat nihilistic Writer/Director/Star Cummings turns his hands to genre filmmaking with an apparent ease and immediate success. 

    As has become a staple of his biggest hits, The Wolf of Snow Hollow follows the troubled life of a small town police officer, in this case John Marshall (Cummings) who’s tasked with balancing out his fractured relationships and avoiding relapse into addiction in the midst of a slew of murders in the usually quiet, titular small town: Snow Hollow.

I wouldn’t particularly say that it’s…

    Tenet

    ★★★½

    Despite being heralded as the saviour of cinema, Nolan delivers this time something that is essentially a high end popcorn flick, especially when compared to his previous works that range from innovative to seminal.

    For as novel as the execution was, I was all but willing myself to like it more than I actually did whilst in the screen, battling away with what I found to be many valid criticisms that seem to be shared by a general consensus. The…
