Backxwash Wins The 2020 Polaris Music Prize

If you told me in January that a rap metal record would win the 2020 Polaris Music Prize I’d have fallen onto a fainting couch in a swoon.

And yet here we are, Backxwash’s God Has Nothing To Do With This Leave Him Out Of It album has indeed won this year’s Polaris and it’s entirely deserved.

We didn’t get to celebrate Backxwash’s victory at the traditional gala this year. Instead, the 10 Short List nominees were honoured with a series of commissioned short films.

It turns out making 10 short films in four months is a ridiculously bonkers thing to do. But we did it. And they turned out.

Parasite Is Brilliant Insight Into The Class War

Parasite

Parasite, the latest film by South Korean director Bong Joon-ho (Snowpiercer), is a sometimes outlandish, sometimes horrifying and at all times brilliant look into the class war through the eyes of a poor family of four who become the domestic help for a wealthy family.

When Sarah saw the film at the Toronto International Film Festival the consensus among critics was mostly “holy shit.”

TIFF 2019: Dolemite Is My Name Is A Strong Return For Eddie Murphy

Dolemite Is My Name

Eddie Murphy’s tribute to blaxploitation star Rudy Ray Moore in Dolemite Is My Name isn’t just charming, it may spark a full-on renaissance for Murphy.

Murphy’s efforts in Dolemite Is My Name certainly do a good job to remind everyone why Murphy is a really big movie star.

Sarah reviewed the film when it screened at the Toronto International Film Festival for Consequence of Sound.

TIFF 2019: Joker Is Not Profound

The Joker

Apologies to incel film Twitter, but Joker isn’t that special a movie.

Sarah saw the film when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and determined that there’s probably Joker fanfiction that’s better done.
