Movie Review: Holy Air (2017)

Adam is a man (although not the first) living with his wife in the congested holy city of Nazareth. He is a member of the Christian Arab community, which is a population in decline in these parts.

Movie Review: Okja (2017)

Animals never have it easy in Bong Joon-ho’s world: “Barking Dogs Never Bite” paints those that yap as vermin that need terminating, “The Host” mutates a fish into a rampaging abomination and now Okja follows a hybrid fated for the abattoir.

If you’re interested in how, or why, a person would start a winery in this competitive industry, then you may find something more to like in…
