Movie Review: Yesterday (2019)

The Beatles are one of the most iconic, influential and beloved musicians, or indeed creative artists, of all time.

Movie Review: Leto (2018)

“Fuck your TV. I’ve got my T-Rex.” “It’s OK in the swamp, especially if you’re the number one toad.” Leto, written and directed by Kirill Serebrennikov (“The Student”), has received much buzz because of the director’s house arrest — apparently because he is no friend of Vladimir Putin.
