Welcome to CAPITAL REVIEWER for the latest reviews on film, theatre and art courtesy of our London reviewers.
This month CAPITAL REVIEWER introduces its first PODCASTS, with film reviews on new releases in cinemas and online. Alongside short, bite-size reviews we are also hosting "in converstion" podcasts with our London reviewers Kathleen Bondar and Susan Gray, who debate and concur with equal passion. Films reviewed include Bong Joon Ho's multi-Oscar winning PARASITE IN BLACK AND WHITE; “Street cast” Roxanne Scrimshaw performing a version of herself in the BFI's LYNN & LUCY; Dominik Moll’s gripping French thriller ONLY THE ANIMALS based on the novel Seules Les Bêtes by Colin Niel and Kelly O'Sullivan's refreshing comedy SAINT FRANCES.
All the above are reviewed in pen, for you to read at your leisure on the FILM page. Check out more current film reviews including: David Thewlis as an unhinged health inspector in GUEST OF HONOUR directed by the idiosyncratic Canadian auteur, Atom Egoyan; Icelandic rural revenge drama THE COUNTY and the refreshingly altruistic CITIZENS OF THE WORLD directed and by and featuring Gianni Di Gregorio.
Meanwhile, we still have to wait for theatres to reopen due to COVID 19 safety issues around "live performances" (plays, music & dance). It is for these cultural venues that CAPITAL REVIEWER reserves sympathy and wishes all those in the performing arts the very best. However, some outdoor theatres, opera, dance and music have resumed. Let's hope the sun shines on these events.
Keep checking this space as the arts adapts and evolves for audiences and viewers in the current climate.
