Munich – The Edge of War plays way too much with history in what is otherwise a fan fiction adaptation of the Robert Harris novel, Munich. Years after having a falling out after graduating Oxford, British civil servant Hugh Legat (George MacKay) and German diplomat Paul von Hartmann (Jannis Niewöhner) get their hands on the Hossbach Memorandum about Hitler’s plan for taking over Europe. In this aspect, the film plays like a solid spy thriller.…"Munich – The Edge of War Plays With History"
The conversion therapy flick, Wolf, is certainly no howler nor is it the kind of film you’d bark home about, maybe you’ll growl. I don’t know. Maybe it’s because I’m trans and grew up lying to myself at night but this film just didn’t hit with me. Yeah, I know that gender dysphoria is a thing because of my own lived experience. Species identity dysphoria comes off as an entirely different ballgame. Is it okay…"Wolf: Conversion Therapy Flick Is No Howler"

To put it simply, Sam Mendes’ 1917 is a masterpiece achievement in filmmaking and without a doubt one of the best war films to ever be made.

Without being able to do so, a countless number of British lives could be lost because of walking into…"1917: A Masterpiece Achievement In Filmmaking"
The Daisy Ridley-starring Ophelia is unfortunately a bit of a letdown in the most recent adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play. What the film does is tell the classic Hamlet story from Ophelia’s (Daisy Ridley) point of view in the Denmark-set film. It’s an admirable attempt but I feel like there’s something missing. In switching the point of view, the film falls quite short in that regard. This is unfortunate because the premise had the potential…"Ophelia: Hamlet Fanfiction Is A Letdown"
Where Hands Touch is a coming of age film that brings to light the little known stories about biracial children living in Germany during World War 2. Despite having a German-sounding name, Leyna (Amandla Stenberg) is not your typical German girl. The teenager is the daughter of a white German mom, Kerstin (Abbie Cornish), and a black African father. This came as a result of the French following World War 1. Because Leyna is biracial,…"TIFF 2018: Where Hands Touch"
